    [HR][/HR]Over last 2 days, this is what I've seen:
    Max Server load: 188.03/16
    Min Server Load: 6.72/16

    Max CPU Load: 1880%
    Min CPU Load: 32.7%[TABLE="class: brick, width: 100%"]
    [/TABLE]


    This min/max cycle is constantly going in seemingly 10 minute cycles, sometimes it doesn't get as high as 188/16, but always gets past 16/16.
    We've asked our server managers, but they essentially respond with "We don't know, so don't worry about it". Any information is - to a point - confidential in regards to the actual site's domain, but an obfuscated version of logs and any information is available to you.

    PS: This is a dedicated server, and I have full root privileges in SSH and WHM.
    PPS: This is a VERY HIGH TRAFFIC site. 400k pageviews per day, to help with those requests, we are using Cloudflare.
