Server locking on page loads? Which?


I have this server:

Dual Xeon 3.4GHz HT
4GB Memory
100MBit Uplink
2x300GB SCSI 10k Disks

Software
Apache 1.33
PHP 4.4.0
MySQL 4.1.13
cpanel 10.8x Current

APF
BFD
LSM
SIM
LES
mod dosevasive
mod throttle
zend optimizer
eaccelerator
nessus

Server Load:
CPU: always less than 0.25
Memory: always less than 20%
Disk: 10% usage
tmp: 2% usage

Problem: server is loading sites on/off. Half the time the pages lock u and give "page not found". This appies to all sites on the server (just a few as well).
1. Vbulletin forum (no more than 10-15 concurrent users max) about 300 unique hits per day
2. Business site (simple flash / php) about 300 unique hits per day

I do not know why it is happening but I am asking if maybe anything I installed above may cause this? Nothing was customized after the default installation (other than php/my.cnf mentioned)

Please let me know what could use the sites to act abnormally like the following

1. no page found
2. slow page load
3. normal page load (becomming almost rare).

I tried: Avant browser, IE 6.x (completely cleared cache/cookies and all). I'm on a cable LAN modem (extremely fast).

No one better than apache error logs can tell you what is actually going on.
Set tye error loggin to debug in apache httpd.conf file.
Set display_errors to On in php.ini
Set debug level loggin in mysql.cnf

restart apache and mysql

and keep a strict eye on apache error log and mysql log.

My experiences say that you are bound to have a concrete reason for all your problem in about 30 minutes.

The good news is, this amount of load is positively trivial. There should be no delays of any kind... and since there are, it's probably some kind of error that's resulting in a (useless) retry until an (eventual) timeout. The log-files for Apache and/or MySQL should be littered with messages ...
