box439's Server Load is skyrocketing -- in just the past three minutes it has gone from 21.24 (8 cpus) up to 34.12! Even now, it's "stabilizing" at 25 (which is WAY too much for an 8 cpu server).
Brent [10:13:46 AM]:
actually, it's not. It's a percentage.
25% of the load
Travis [10:14:03 AM]:
No, it's not. 25 = 25cpu equivalent.
Brent [10:14:32 AM]:
no, really, it is.
Travis [10:15:24 AM]:
Brent, anything over 8.5 generates the "red exclamation mark" icon on the server status page
Brent [10:16:13 AM]:
yes it doesn, but it doesn't mean there is an overload
Travis [10:17:06 AM]:
serverstatus.bluehost.com says, "2009-06-01 09:10:45: Box under heavy load -- you may experience degraded system performance"
Brent [10:17:39 AM]:
i didn't say it wasn't under a heavy load. I was trying ot explain more of what that server cpu item means
Travis [10:18:25 AM]:
from reviewbluehost.com/bluehost-servers/heavy-server-load-at-bluehost/: "At this time of writing, red light is shown for the server loads where the numbers are 18.12 (8cpus). This means there are 18.12 processes in queue - which is over 2 times of CPU capacity."
Brent [10:18:49 AM]:
that information is not correct, as we have modified the way our servers display the cpu.
