Ok,my server is crashing down a lot(500% CPU usage) and whenever it does I opened up the putty and use the htop to observer any abnormal behavior,So one thing I noticed is whenever my CPU spike in the ‘Tasks’ row the second column which is for ‘thr’ goes to the maximum.Now if I increase the pm.max_children more the ‘thr’ value even goes higher but the CPU consumption is still 500%+.
So I want to know what does this ‘thr’ means and how to avoid letting it go to some maximum values.Also if anyone can explain the terms shown in the Tasks row I will be grateful.An instance of Tasks observable values for my server is.
Tasks : 91 , 109 thr, 96 kthr,: 6 running
