    Our server now had suddenly a permanent high load, is there a way to see from which IPs this load is coming? And how I can limit number of concurrent connections from these IPs?

    check apache status from WHM
    also the option cpu/mysql usage would show you the averages for all users.
    show current cpu usage would show you the processess running and what amount of resources are being consumed by each of them.

    cheers,

    Sorry I'm afraid I wasn't clear, I know which processes cause high load it's mostly php5 processes. And I know which users cause this load. Bud judging by instant peak in server load I blame some new spider which started overload this server and I would like to know it's ip addresses and to be able to block it.

    whm apache status would show you all the IP's which apache is currently serving.

    you should also check what does that php5 load means, what files are being accessed, it can be someone attacking your hosted php script too.

    hope that helps.

    cheers,
