I have been a dreamhost customer for a while. Up until the recent problems everything has gone smoothly.
Watching the blog and the status page I had assumed the problems were fixed but now I am seeing high uptimes and my pages take an excessive amount of time to load.
Now I am using roundcube for my email services and I do notice the php5 process will spike up to 10% but only momentarily. Is roundcube, using sqlite, that much of a drain on resources or is it something else?
I am on the server gap and I see load jumping up past 6 at times. It would be nice to have a post on the status page about servers experiencing high load times with regards to dynamic content.
PS I enjoy using your service as it offers a wide availability of functionality. Your communication compared to other hosters is excellent.
