I have a Centos 6.4 server that's being used as a Cassandra node in a production environment, it is still working and responding to queries etc, but the load average is rather "high" a.k.a. buggy? In any case, you have to see it for yourself:
Has anybody seen something like this before? Any clue on what's causing it?
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: Adding output of cat /proc/loadavg as requested:
