My server runs only email and one simple website.. yet, sometimes, I can see single httpd service (run by _www) can take up to 99% or 100% of one CPU core. If leave it as is, sometimes, it goes the second httpd takes up anther 100% of another core... etc. etc.
I run 16 Core Xserver, and in a couple of hours, the total CPU usage can goes as high as 80%. while normally the average CPU usage (for normal emails, web service, etc) is using less than 2% of total CPU power.
Is that something wrong with my installation or implementation of my web server? (since the trouble comes from httpd), I did very standard installation and implementation, mostly the web server configuration left unchanged. (other than I put websites files into the server).
Or it may caused by other services? (yes, I run squirrelmail webmail service for my email user as well)
I normally go into the system and kill those httpd services by its PID. But it comes back in a couple of days anyway....
