    Hi all

    For some odd reason I noticed that our one cPanel VPS stopped responding, even though the load was low. I could see a few websites, but email, cPanel, WHM, SSL, etc wasn't working.

    When I SSH'd into the server, the load average was about 6, dropping down to 0.08 after about two minutes, so this seemed fine.

    Code:
    top - 16:53:15 up 25 days, 8:34, 1 user, load average: 0.08, 0.19, 0.28

    I rebooted the server, and not long after that I noticed it doing the same.

    Any suggestions?
