OMG! My turn to be CPU Load 1000!!!!
I can't imagine how the CPU will be like..... it shows CPU Load at 1000, and the processes get up to 2500+
Well currently is offpeak hours, and is showing 1000CPU load is very rare, so i went in and take a look what is loading so high..
Answer: NOTHING! only the Mailnull looks aweful in ps -aux...it has a whole list of mailnull
So i stopped mysql, apache and exim..still no hopes
P4 2.8GC (800FSB) still cannot fix the HT problem
1GB Dual Channel Ram
2.4.22 SMP kernel
tail -f /var/log/exim_mainlog (if you can with that load)
If not, (assuming this is cpanel)
service chkservd stop
killall -9 exim (probably several times before it actually gets them all)
tail -200 /var/log/exim_mainlog |more
That should give some idea of what's going on.
i'v got a same problem . It was very stranger . It was kernel SMP box and it come back to normal when i recompile kernel .
If you see a lot of mail processes, someone is either
1. Sending massive bulk emails (most probably spam)
2. You are receiving a lot of emails at the same time. We had seen this issue before when someone did a joe's job on one of our clients.
