    pages load slow during peak hours

    dedicated server is AMD 3200+, with 1G memory, vbb forum only, pages load slow during peak hours, but the server load is just less than 2, more than 1.5, the concurrent apache connections (ps -ef|grep apache|wc -l) are round 70, sql connections (ps -ef|grep mysql|wc -l) are about 120,

    top output:
    23:26:09 up 19 days, 23:42, 1 user, load average: 1.48, 1.65, 1.64
    214 processes: 211 sleeping, 2 running, 0 zombie, 1 stopped
    CPU states: cpu user nice system irq softirq iowait idle
    total 91.6% 0.0% 7.5% 0.1% 0.5% 0.0% 0.0%
    Mem: 1026112k av, 973368k used, 52744k free, 0k shrd, 13644k buff
    906284k active, 27128k inactive
    Swap: 2096440k av, 1105688k used, 990752k free 337324k cached

    the apache settings:
    KeepAlive = Off
    MaxKeepAliveRequests = 0
    KeepAliveTimeout = 5
    MinSpareServers = 10
    MaxSpareServers = 20
    StartServers = 10
    MaxClients = 250

    is there anything I can do for better performance? Thanks.

    Well you are using a gig of swap there, that's quite a bit. It would help to have a full output of top (not just hte top part of top, no pun intended) and ps -aux . You also might want to toss up your my.cnf as well.

    Try running turck mmcache, will improve PHP performance by a large amount, and will work especially well on forums.

    You may also want to look into optimising mySQL.
