    I am having this problem with server load at the moment. Everyday at around exactly the same time, my server load gradually goes up and keep on going up even it reaches over 400 and casuing all service to hang..

    Anybody got any suggestion?

    Log in via SSH and enter the command
    top
    to see current processes and what is using all the power.

    You'll probably see gzip & tar in top. I reckon your backups are running. You might want to adjust the time they run by having upcp run @ a slower period of the afternoon / evening.

    crontab -e then edit the time the /scripts/upcp script runs @.
