Greetings Suse community. I'm looking for some advice finding the problem with a work server. I'm new to linux sys admin work so I don't know all the commands and in/outs. I believe this is a hardware issue so I'm posting it here. I was given an hp proliant server that was previously taken out of use due to unreliable performance. While working the load averages would spike it would lag out. I pulled each HD and formatted it, I also ran memtest for about 9 passes and it didn't find any issues.
I installed the newer release of openSUSE (compared to what the server had) and installed the call center software on it (ViciDial). While sitting idle the load averages are insane. The example below was from last night. I've watched it go up to a load of 40 where I no longer had any control or down to .5 (lowest I've seen). The server was idle and not in use. Can someone please give me ideas on where to look for the trouble? Thanks
