Joe,

I had this exact same problem with my previous host. Also running mod_perl it reached a point where I had to go into my server twice a day and kill the large processes manually so the site would come back up again! It was not out of the ordinary to run up load averages of 36!

I have about 100 - 150 users in my forums at any time.

I moved my servers to Gossamer-Host and without touching the GForum code my load averages are now 0.2 - 3.0. I'd say this is almost certainly something on your server side. I'm unfortunately also a bit of an ignoramus when it comes to servers so I will be unable to suggest possible solutions.

Have you done a top and checked your load averages, CPU and Memory usage? Could be useful if you post those. Also, check if there are any large processes running and see who/what owns them.

Safe swoops
