    Hi everyone! One of my servers has been running extremely slow today. I just ran the 'top' command to see where most process comsumption is coming from and this is what I noticed;

    10% CPU Usage - php
    16% CPU Usage - spamd
    24% CPU Usage - Mailscanner
    22% CPU Usage - rad1md2

    I am sure a million things could be the cause, but based on what you see here, what would you recommend I start to look into? Thank you

    I just looked under WHM / System Health / Process Manager - and I saw this at the top:

    57% CPU Usage MailScanner: checking with SpamAssassin

    This can't be good... but where do I go or how do I determine or stop what's causing this?
