white blank screen on the site
The only things that looks unusual is that outgoing traffic shoots up close to lunch time.
How can I solve this issue?
What does the I/O graph look like when ssh becomes unresponsive and outgoing traffic spikes? You might be running out of memory because of too many concurrent users.
Can you use Firebug or Chrome Webmaster Tools (depending on your browser) to grab the HTTP headers of the empty white screen? It might say something like "HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error" followed by a bunch of other lines to help diagnose problems.
Response HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error

I am on apache, wordpress. I dont have APC installed.
As, I was setting up the server. At one point, I installed APC, by doing
apt-get php5-cli php5-cgi php5-dev php-apc. Then, installed webalizer, and checked the site. Again, it
was white screen.
No error, no log issues. I backtrack uninstall webalizer. Then, it was still blank screen. I uninstalled APC, left php5-cli php5-cgi php5-dev as is… Reboot the server, and the site was up.
outgoing traffic is avg: 150 kb/s and right before lunch time shoots around 1.5 Mb/s
In the beginning, before I used
the IO rate used to go up and down. After using the low-memory settings, I was able to bring it down
IO Rate around 5 to 15.
However, it sometimes shoots up like crazy during lunch time. It averages around 536. The graph shows as high as 4808, I think this was before the low-memory settings.
