This a shared web server for our office and normally runs just fine with a few devs working on it simultaneously.
However, I've recently started working with it using Wordpress and it's XMLRPC API feature and things turned sour. I'm making an iPhone app that requests data from the API, the responses of which are around 5k-8k in size.
The server ends up in the state shown below after sending one batch of API requests. After a few minutes it returns to normal with load averages of, right now,
0.08, 0.81, 0.93
Can anyone diagnose this? I have no clue how to interpret all the columns. Any help would be much appreciated.
