Each core should normally have a maximum load of 1.0 - most (if not all) server here are dual-core systems, so a load of 2.0 should be fine. However I wouldn’t worry as long as the load doesn’t creep above 5. If it stays above 5 for a longer period contact support, but they also monitor server loads, at least that’s what they are telling us. They might offer to move you to a knew server. I did that move a few months ago and since then I’m on a server which has a load of around 1 and 2, often even below 1 and sometimes it spikes up to 8. In my experience the biggest bottleneck here at DH is the MySQL server.
