The Apache server is also running the postifx and bind although they aren't resource intensive applications.
The Cron job for drupal runs every 50 minutes, and the agreggator module is enabled and fetches more than 30 rss feeds every time.
The site used to be hosted on a single Celeron machine but on peak times the CPU went up to 80 %.
Question : Does anybody know a website hosted on an IBM Mainframe? :) Todd?
