I currently have Untangle Premium in production running on it's own server. I've built a new Untangle Premium box in an ESXi 4.1 environment in the hopes of moving this one into production once it proves to be stable.
I'm seeing some load spikes that occur throughout the day like clockwork. This would normally not be unusual of course as the load would change and be very hard to guage, however I have a very consistent load being placed on this test machine.
2 computers are running through the Untangle test box with most modules turned on. Both computers have around 10 different tabs open in Chrome with an extension that automatically refreshes every tab at staggered 5 second intervals. Based on this, I should see very even performance throughout the day with the exception of the reports generating. Attached is what I'm seeing. The web sessions remain very constant with not much else going on but every 3-4 hours the load goes up dramatically.
Is there anyway to figure out what is causing this spike? Any help would be very appreciated.
