    I keep getting this no matter what value I change extracpus to in the cpanel.config. It's a Dual Xeon with Hyperthreading. I've set the value to 0 through 4, none cease the emails.

    Is there any way to raise the tolerance (without editing the script directly)? It's a multi-million hit webserver, the load is high.. nothing I can do about it.

    IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
    This is cPanel cpuwatch on!
    While processing, the cpu has been
    maxed out for more than a 6 hour period. The current load/uptime line on the server at the time of
    this email is
    05:39:34 up 57 days, 12:50, 0 users, load average: 6.18, 6.17, 6.11
    You should check the server to see why the load is so high and take
    steps to lower the load. If you want stats to continue to run even with a high load; Edit
    /var/cpanel/cpanel.config and change extracpus to a number larger then 0 (run
    /usr/local/cpanel/startup afterwards to pickup the changes).

    Go on, have a guess
    Then you should set it higher than 4 if you're happy with such a high load average. Stick it to 10 and the emails should go away.
