    Yes - you can backup the database (from the database backup page ) and prune the logs down to a smaller size. Do make sure you have applied the latest updates though, as there are some changes in there which improve load average.

    If you want to deal with this in more detail, either contact me or our support team who'll help you diagnose any LA issues.

    Worth noting though that a high load average on its own isnt necessarily a problem (it could be non-vital processes with high wait states)
