I know this is a very vague question, but, a machine went up to a load of 33ish on me in the last 2 days. Although, getting a load of 33 is very impressive, I don't know why it got to such a load. So, all services started dying (NIS, httpd, etc ..) "top" reports nothing using the CPU. I know CPU isn't the only thing to load a machine, so my question is, what other tools are there to see what is loading the machine?
