I was following http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/AWStats_Installation step by step to install AWStats.
When I got up to the step:
perl /home/yourusername/awstats/tools/awstats_buildstaticpages.pl -config=domainname.com -update \
(obviously I customized it), i found that it spiked up to 96% CPU, with logresolvemerge spiking up to 40% and dreamhost automatically killed the process.
That's some crazy CPU usage!
Did I do something wrong?
