    what sort of applications/websites are you hosting on this system? What is the output of 'top' if you can run that from an SSH session. That should give some good idea to what is casuing the load.

    Is 'krazyboy's website insanely popular? He may be running a malicious script.

    is that all the output?

    There are a lot of php processes - i assume that there are a lot of visitors to this website? Can you describe what sort of websites this server is hosting and how many visitors you typically are getting?

    well there you go - thats a lot of hits... PHP is generating the load based off the number of hits

    probably not a great deal. you can see if you can optimise your php scripts. Did you code the website?

    How many hours has passed today? If that's over 24 hours or even 6 hours, the server should not get such a high load.

    just hit the site - does take a long time to load initally. im not getting delay to the host - definitley looks like the PHP script is very heavy to load initally.

    Im not the expert here - but is there a caching mechanisim that could be employed here?
