Re: System load is very high (Load averages: 15.28, 15.27, 15.27) and more sleeping process (217)

Since this is an HPUX 10.20 machine running on a K580, it might be OK to say it's probably not been rebooted in a while, possibly years and years.

Since the data you're showing indicates nothing that would generate that high of a cpu load, not in memory, not in cpu, not in i/o...

Consider a scheduled rebooting of the server. I think some tables are a bit out of whack and have possibly overflowed their numeric boundaries, which have make your email system think that it should not deliver email because the load is too high. A reboot will probably fix the problem. Especially if this system has been up for a long period of time, like I suspect it has.

HI,

You can also check that issue by rebooting server. But before rebooting server , take down time.

Hi Senthil,

What is uptime saying?
How long this server is up?
If server is running more then 100 or 200 then better go for bounce the server once and monitor the server for load average.

Hi Senthil,

After rebooting the system, please collect the following output and post

# uptime
# swapinfo -tam
# sar -Mu 5 10
# sar -d 5 10
# sar -v 5 10
# iostat 5 10
# top
