Sorry but you are a noob and really shouldnt have a dedicated server in my opinion.

But hey its a lovely sunny day!!

You really need to do some googling sir

All the information is available on the web and more.

When something is causing a high load on the CPU, it's not OVH's fault. YOU need to check where this high CPU load is coming from - Apache apparently. So check Apache's logs to see what's causing it...

Speaking of which, this week I've gotten a few hits from the "w00tw00t" scripted scanner originating from OVH servers. Maybe you've left yourself open to attacks by leaving Apache in its default configuration? Check...

But looking at the BW being used, you might need to upgrade the Torrent Application you are using or Stop using Wine/uTorrent or Deluge as these use massive amounts of RAM and CPU Cycles.
You old cynic Palad1n. It is possibly to have 10MiB/s going out without running torrents

Have you tried a good old reboot, then apt-get update && apt-get upgrade, then reboot and see if that helps any?
It did occur to me that the installation might have been compromised but surely that's the first thing everyone checks?

As for clean-up. I advocate a fresh install as I just don't trust one that has previously been compromised. What if a binary was changed and rkhunter/chkrootkit isn't picking it up etc etc.

Have you looked at the 'processes' tab to see what process is actually taking the time on the fully loaded core?

You might be better off using htop in a console window as it offers a better instantaneous representation of CPU and memory states.

From the console as root or sudoer:

Code:
apt-get install htop
Or you can use Synaptic and search for 'htop' and install it that way.

Once installed open a terminal [Applications>Accessories>Terminal] and issue:

Code:
htop
The default sort order in htop should show you the highest consuming process at the top of the list. It will also show you the load-average figures which are arguably a better indicator of the CPU state.



/EDIT Does anyone else know how much bandwidth the Ubuntu client viewer uses? If it's sending full pages at a high rate, it could consume a lot of bandwidth when in use.

A trick for derchris to try would be to log in via SSH only without the graphical client and run bmon (probably need to install bmon first).

I'm not doing off-site support via msn/yahoo/...

You basicaly repeated what you were saying before.
But this doesn't make sense.

If a CPU is hitting 100%, then there is a process running using this CPU time.
It has nothing to do with the CPU itself

Its not single celeron processor to hit 100% cpu usage without any heavy load on it....................... I had another two Core 2 Duo servers with OVH which are running fine than this..I am waiting for you on yahoo and msn

And what should it tell us?
That your CPU is hitting 100% ?
I can't see a fault with the CPU.

I had had opened a ticket in ovh stating that there is a problem with my CPU and my network ...but ovh support telling ......that tehy had tested my server and there nothing wrong with my CPU and Network ..................why they are not listening to me.......... These are screen shots of my server
