Ok, your system load is not 3%, but more than 300%!

95.4% is too much. I guess there's a problem with your saslauthd. What's in your mail log?

i get alot of this. but other than that its just the general log of what goes in and out the mail system.

urgh help!

i've stopped the service and CPU went down to 0% and the load decreased.

I've restarted it and will monitor it and see what happens.


OK - 20 odd minutes later and it seems to have settled down. Even some ram has freed up. The cpu fluctuates depending on the apache2 load.

Code:
top - 15:44:46 up 27 days,  1:24,  1 user,  load average: 0.08, 0.11, 0.66
Tasks:  79 total,   2 running,  77 sleeping,   0 stopped,   0 zombie
Cpu(s): 15.2% us,  4.0% sy,  0.0% ni, 79.8% id,  0.7% wa,  0.0% hi,  0.3% si
Mem:   1027912k total,   886476k used,   141436k free,    67696k buffers
Swap:  2096472k total,        0k used,  2096472k free,   593604k cached
