Really High Server Loads

Hi,

I am unsure why, but my server loads never seem to drop any lower than these:

Server Load Averages 3.11 3.88 4.15 | 13 Users Online (1 members and 12 guests)

I am on a godaddy shared host. I have heard they cram hundreds of hosting accounts onto each server and was wondering if this could be the cause?

Any way I can pinpoint the cause?

How many plugins do you have installed? Many plugins could cause this.
Also GoDaddy indeed has hundreds of websites on a single server which could cause this, but I believe the server load values indicate the load of your website only.

This is the server load(s) with plugins active: 3.73 3.31 3.48

This is the server load(s) without plugins active: 3.55 3.34 3.47

That's not overly high and also not all you, as you apparently already know.

Doesn't matter the company, if you are on a shared hosting server it is likely to have alot of sites on it. That's not strictly a Godaddy issue. I have used GD for over ten years, no issues and great service. Most of the gripes on GD are regurgitated, politically motivated stuff. Same company owns vBulletin and GD.

Call back when server load is consistently 30 and up, or so. You got no problems.

Link to your site?

Assuming the server has at least 4 cpu's, then those loads would be ok even if you were the only person using it.

(Purely in terms of load v cpus, I'd be somewhat concerned if you were actually the only person on it with those figures)
