    4 cores 3.1 GHZ
    8 gb ram
    CENTOS 6.8 x86_64 kvm
    WHM 58.0 (build 31)

    I am facing problem from last few days that my this vps load goes high on daily basis. 8/12 times in 24 hours. I am regular looking csf email of high alert and trying to findout what's a issue of highload.

    Time: Sat Oct 1 08:08:03 2016 +0500
    1 Min Load Avg: 50.62
    5 Min Load Avg: 31.39
    15 Min Load Avg: 15.70
    Running/Total Processes: 4/407

    Now I am noticing that spamd is taking too much load on vps and make it unstable

    Hello,

    The following thread is a good place to start:

    Troubleshooting high server loads on Linux servers

    Regarding SpamAssassin, how much email activity occurs with that cPanel account? You could try temporarily disabling SpamAssassin on that account to see if the load drops.

    Thank you.
