I was wondering if any of you encountered such an issue, that the reported load of the server is really high though none of the parameters seems to indicate that its busy at all. I would need to check this again, but I think this only happens after I start passenger. I am on a dedicated virtual host.
Any tips of why is this happening or ideas how to debug this load value? Here is my top reading, I can provide other information if needed.
