Hi gurus,

can you please hint as what parameters I have monitor to find the cause of
sudden splashes of load of a FreeBSD 4.6.2-RELEASE server? This box is
acting as a database/mysql server and periodically goes up to 400 of load
average values and then gradually returns to a normal 4-5 value. The
server is a dual Xeon with 4G phisical memory, mysql 4.0.7/linuxthreads.
During the highest load, the amount of Inact memory remains of about 2G,
and swap is used only minimally, so this cannot be the case. There are no
messages in a system log or mysql log.

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks is advance
