This is a Centos List. Not a RH9 List. In any case, you want to look for
cpu hoggers and/or heavy I/O activity. In the latter case, you will have
to guess who the culprit is or get atsar with an appropriate kernel patch.
In any case, Rh9 is unmaintained and I suggest you upgrade to a more
recent Linux distro.
