Hello Nicholas,

Thanks for your kind response.
Yes, the storage engine is mysql and it is actually typo3 powered site.
But I have already done the optimization in mysql level and there is no
such load on mysql. The server is armed with 4 GB Ram and quadcore
processor. When the site becomes slow ; the top shows it is actually
apache which consumes so much CPU. Is not there any way to optimize apache ?

Thanks
