comment High Apache busy workers and high load average
Here is a screenshot of the apache log dir, sorted by size --> cl.ly/image/3Z0r2c1w0c2R. Here I caught apache reading lots from the disk --> cl.ly/image/3b3I3s2y3y2K.

The server just peaked again... I quickly showed sudo iotop and apache was writing a lot to the server, I'm not sure where I can find logs to say what what being written and at what time... can you advise?

Yeah a quick Google suggested it was just a request from the server to itself... just seemed funny it happened at the same time.

Hi there, I used grep to find anything hitting the max_execution, but nothing came back. I did find, however, lots of strange entries in the access log. See "Update 1" in my question. Thanks.

Well that appears to have done it. After doing your little tests (touch before/after) and deploying this has solved my problem. Many thanks Tom :-)
