Load spikes in the last 24 hours
I've had my Linode running for 252 days now with no problem, however I've noticed two large load spikes in the last twenty four hours that I can't account for.
They were at 1506 GMT today and around 2125 GMT yesterday, the one today went to over 5 (in contrast my usual load is 0.3), it dropped my two SSH connections, pinged me out of IRC and I think dropped ~100 clients from my IRCd.
Has anyone else had similar? I'm on host7.
In the mean time I've made a ticket
I see it by running "top" and watching all the CPU time go to the I/O wait state - this happened about a month before due to a compromised virtual server on the same host as me.
