Hi there, my name is***** down the problem is a process, not unlike a treasure hunt. Here's how you start the process. You'll need command line access to your server (get to a prompt).

Type top and press Enter. Then:

  1. Look at the third line %Cpu(s) to see how much of the CPU is being used, how much is idle and how much is waiting for disk i/o. That will confirm your belief that you're having high CPU usage.
  2. Look at the next two lines to see if you're running out of memory and the server is having to use swap space in place of memory (very slow).
  3. Then look at the individual processes listed at the %CPU column. Find the processes that are consuming all the CPU and then investigate further. Until you know what process(es), I can't really help you with the next step.

If this answers your question, please accept the answer and rate me 5. I don't get paid anything for helping you unless you accept the answer. If not, please chat me back and I'll get you the answer you need. Thanks!
