General Problem: Server load 20.92 (8 CPUs) [it varies from 7 to 40, normally it should be less than 1)
Server Specs: Dedicated Server Intel Core i7 (8 Cpus) RAM: 8GB We use WHM and we have about 25 databases (8 are wordpress) most of which are MyISAM. We are using the default MySQL options as always.
Now WHM won't allow us to downgrade to mysql 5.1 When we disable mysql, cpu goes down to 0.20 (8 CPUs)
As i said, the problem is CPU gets over 100%.
Now when i look at PhpMyAdmin Statistics: "Query statistics: Since its startup, 387,979 queries have been sent to the server" And the server was running for 20 minutes.
show status like '%onn%'; prints this:
| Aborted_connects | 1 | | Connections | 93576 | (and growing by ~100 per second) | Max_used_connections | 46 | | Threads_connected | 7 |
7 rows in set (0.00 sec) When i shut down apache2 no new connections are made.
