Question

Linux Apache Webserver very slow and using 100% CPU

Hello,

I found out that the CPU on my Linux web server is always on 100%.

Well the web host of mine said that the following processes are responsible for this: https://imgur.com/4lGAnRF

What could this be? Maybe a Virus or a Miner? And how can I fix the problem? I haven’t found anything comparable on Google to this process yet. My web host can’t help me either because they don’t know what exactly the problem is.

For your information, a month ago I had a miner on my server (kdevtmpfsi). However, it was professionally removed by an IT security specialist.

Thanks in advance

Hi @slitec38,

Could you see what process is consuming the entire CPU?

Are you sure it’s Apache?

Cheers,
