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 xxx.xxx.xxxxxxxx! 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).
