    Hello!

    We're running a centOS 6.6 VPS and we had a crash on tuesday morning (11/11). After it came back up, I checked Munin and found and increase in low priority processes:

    It alarmed me a bit since I don't recall making any configuration changes that would take effect on restart. I checked htop and found that the nice on the apache processes is now automatically set to 18.

    My questions are:
    1. What could've caused that to happen?
    2. Should I be concerned? Should I switch it back and how?

    I can provide more details/specs if needed.

    Thank you.
