Re: PHP processes keep overwhelming my server, eating up the CPU and making it lock u
Isn't the problem less to do with the VM itself and more to do with the 92.3% stolen CPU time? (the right most number on the "top" cpu line.) For whatever reason, there isn't much CPU time being made available for this machine.
Seiji: It probably isn't related at all, but on my i7 based 12.04.2 server, I have now had two occurances of a sudden instantanious jump in load average, such that when reverse calculated, knowing the IIR (Infinite Impulse Response) time constants would have been a one time load hit of around 1024. The second one I was trying to re-create, and thought I had the formula to do so, but no. However, I did catch the event, see plot below. More on this at some later date, if I am able to make progress. - Actualy the numbers suggest that hoppipolla's load issues are more sustained.

Reason: had left and right reversed for top CPU
