nobody is the Apache user and seems your server is running PHP as an Apache module thats why all PHP processes will run under the ownership of Apache user nobody. Probably your server is getting high HTTP traffic so you need to find the site that is receiving that traffic. You can check the Apache Status for it from WHM >> Server Status >> Apache Status that which site is getting much hits.

Along with WebScHoLaR's comments, what is the "top" of top information. cpu, ram, tasks, etc etc.

Juding by the web users in that snapshot, things may be well improved with a bit more ram (we could know for sure if we had all the top info) and some server tweaking. For all we know, you could be running mostly on a swap file.

Is this a vps?
