  • CPU Usage and Apache failing issues

    Over the last few weeks I am having problems with my board. Using 3.0.1. It is on a dedicated server and is the only thing being run on it. Linux OS.

    What is happening is out of the blue the board will become non-repsonsive. I then can not even get onto my server because the CPU load is maxed out. When I finally can get on I see that Apache has failed. I look at my CPU usuage and see this

    Top Process %CPU 99.9 /usr/sbin/mysqld --basedir/ --datadir/var/lib/mysql --usermysql --pid-file/var/lib/mysql/ --skip-locking

    What could be causing this to keep maxing out my CPU? As I said...this has only been over the last few weeks.

    How big are your log files?

      If there a backup cron job that you have running which dumps everything?

        Log file is about 65MB and I did not see any Cron jobs that dump everything.

        I was reading somewhere about a util for Linux that shows in detail the processes in Apache at that moment. Called Top or something. I think this would help me find out why Apache keeps running the CPU?!
