I have a mysql server (version 5.1) running Roundcube Webmail client on a plesk box (onyx). We have a few hundred users on it during the day. My hypervisor, Virtuozzo, they have been working with us on this all day and found that the container itself is generating an enormous amount of I/O.

The I/O got so high that it crashed the entire server, with corruption to the file system.
