Help load at 43! What factors does
 
[root@vz101 root]# top
top - 15:04:17 up 2 days, 22:56, 3 users, load average: 43.86, 41.57, 34.08
Tasks: 475 total, 32 running, 439 sleeping, 0 stopped, 4 zombie
Cpu(s): 10.0% user, 2.8% system, 0.0% nice, 87.3% idle
Mem: 3617428k total, 3574556k used, 42872k free, 314032k buffers
Swap: 8385920k total, 465856k used, 7920064k free, 1568164k cached

CPU is 87.3% idle (its a dual core) and I have over 7.5gigs of swap space available.

When I check ps -aux | less there are no processes using a lot of cpu or ram.

What else could be causing my high load?

You have 475 processes! Even if they are all lightweight they still add up.
