    From last 3 days my server getting too much high load. Often server load is higher than 50. I used TOP in putty but don't find any specific site of causing this load issue.

    So how can I determine what is causing this high load?

    You can provide the information with sar:

    Code:
    sar | tail -10
    This will show the last 10 entries for sar which has CPU, %user, %nice, %system, %iowait, %steal and %idle listed in it.

    You could also post the output at the top of top command, since that information is listed there.

    You might also want to try WHM > Daily Process Logs to check users and services there for any that might stand out.

    Do you have a datacenter, NOC or provider? If you aren't certain how to troubleshoot using top to locate users or services who are causing issues, then it would be better to seek assistance from your provider if at all possible. This isn't something that anyone could learn how to do in a short timeframe via a forum.
