High load how do I check what's going on

  • My firewall has been having high loads recently.
    The average load right now is 6.10 and 100% which is very high.
    I don't know how to check and see what's causing it.  When  run top on the console doesn't explain much.
    My systems has 1 gig of ram and 2.0 Ghz via chipset.
    I'm also running 1.3rc3 full install with no extra packages installed.
    Any help would be great.


  • From the console you can use commands like systat, vmstat and top

  • Post the output of 'top' run from a command line.
