I got this strange automated e-mail from CPANEL saying I was "maxing" out the CPU on my dedicated server. But the thing is, the site seems to be running fine and this isn't a particularly huge traffic day. Do I actually need to do anything? Will the thing catch fire?
IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
This is cPanel stats runner on server.pointlesswasteoftime.com!
While processing the log files for user pointl2, 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
13:21:22 up 63 days, 12:10, 0 users, load average: 22.68, 11.99, 7.00
You should check the server to see why the load is so high and take
steps to lower the load.
