Hi. i have a virtual server that jumps up to 100% CPU for a day or 2 then goes back down to 5% at for the rest of the time.
i have been told that i can look at the message logs using ssh and i it will have some info on what is using the CPU.
I know how to log in to the virtual server with root access and cd into folders but where are the message logs stored and how do i download them when i find them?
i don't regard myself as a pro when it comes to ssh / command line please help! thanks.
server is running plesk version 9.5 (much out of date version)
