Somebody (some process) that I can't ps ax is thrashing on mothman and making it unusable, with typical load average: 1.88, 1.37, 1.27 (at the moment). Whom can I email who can find it and kill -9 it?
Hmm... load average still high, but machine responsive from shell now, and web pages loading quickly, too.
cancer has been at 30-40 consistently and remains super responsive. It's odd that you would notice any type of slowing at such a low load.. even really (really!) bad servers hum along perfectly at anything under 10. You can asked to be transferred to a different server if you believe the load is affecting your sites.
