    Technical Advice -- Possible CPU/Mem/Config issue

    Below, you see my Apache status from WHM, just before my server crashes.
    It only runs one Postnuke/PHP/MySql website!

    Database size= 70 MB. Traffic=10,000 visitors/day. Page Views= 120K/day.

    The Server is your typical Server Matrix Super Server (P4 CPU 2.8/1 G RAM/Flood Gaurd/Cpanel/WHM/RHE 3)
    Is the above too much to ask from this server?

    It has never been up a full day, ever since I got it couple of weeks ago.

    Could this be an attack? Should I upgrade? What areas I need to check? I did a MySql (huge.conf) /PHP/Apache tuning. Anything else before I ask for an upgrade?

    I noticed that when Memory reaches 80% load, re-starting Apache (from WHM),
    would bring it back to below 25%. It would work OK for a while and handle even more requests
    than than above (59), but it would run out of memory again and shutdown.

    Any advise would be appreciated.

    Can you post a #top output please, and what distro are you using?

    Whats your cache usage? IF it is nothing, and your memory is usuage is quite high like you said, some of it is being cached, so thats not a worry
