[statscheck] Stats/Server Overload Error Message :(
Posted on 2006-05-15
I have a dedicated server with a host running Red Hat Enterprise 3 i686.
Recently, I started getting an error message daily. I will cut and paste the message below:
IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
This is cPanel stats runner on server1.asianscreens.net!
While processing the log files for user pc3000, the cpu has been
maxed out for more than a 6 hour period. The current load/uptime line on the server at the time of
this email is
04:03:47 up 11:04, 0 users, load average: 2.58, 0.83, 0.28
You should check the server to see why the load is so high and take
steps to lower the load. If you want stats to continue to run even with a high load; Edit
/var/cpanel/cpanel.config and change extracpus to a number larger then 0 (run
/usr/local/cpanel/startup afterwards to pickup the changes).
I am not an expert, so I really don't know what to do. The weir thing is, the site still runs blazing fast, but this error message still bothers me.
Any help is appreciated!
