I've noticed that our server has a high CPU load. Our server is a mail

We originally had a CPU load greater than 20, which we believed to be caused
by this bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=650934
We upgraded the kernel to the latest version
(kernel-184.108.40.206-106.fc14.x86_64) using 'yum'.
2.6.35 is a very old kernel these days, and Fedora 14 is End of Life.
Any ideas what is causing this and how to fix the issue?
You might try upgrading to a newer kernel. Aside from that, you would
need to talk to the upstream 2.6.35.x longterm maintainer, but he
doesn't seem to have done anything with 2.6.35 in a very long time.
