Cron Job increasing server load?

view full story

http://www.linuxforums.org – Hi All, Our box has been running with no issues for a month now. (When we first set it up, we had high server load issues - disabled all services that weren't needed and that sorted it). We need to run a crob job, so this morning, I set one up, and enabled the cron daemon. In-turn this has started the problem of our server load increasing again. Can someone explain why this is happening? Surely it shouldn't be doing this? Is there a fix? Any help, or advice would be appreciated. Thanks, Matt. (HowTos)
