Hello, i have the server that in the last days is often loaded. I have always the same traffic and i didn't release any new software.

The load increased from 0.5 to 5 or 6. The application is written in php and mysql. How can i know what is the problem, for instance how do i know if i do need to tune mysql or there is another problem?

thanks

You will have to analyze the usage on the server with basic commands like below. These will help you in basic troubleshooting. From here you can start in the right direction.
