I need a competant sysadmin who can assess my server and find out why it sits with such a high load average (between 1 and 10 constantly, and it regularly spikes to above 50) even though it barely gets used. I think the problem may have something to do with exim and large amounts of spam being sent to my users but I'm not sure and I definitely need somebody experienced to help.
Feel free to contact me for more information.
Payment will be made when the problem is fixed, so please be sure of your skills before bidding.
The server is running RedHat 9 with the latest stable kernel, incidentally.

I did performance analysis on high-load servers at Microsoft for 5 years, working in the Windows Server Performance group. If the OS is Windows, then I can help track the source of the problem.
I have worked with Suns, Linux and FreeBSD. I will take a quick look at it for free and give you a diagnosis. If it's something really simple I'll fix it, if not I'll explain it and tell what it'll cost to fix it.
