Ian, I'm also running news websites, which reminds me... you aren't by chance running openX to server your ads on that same server are you? Your symptoms sound very similar to my early experiences.

Moving openX to a separate server was the single best thing we ever did. openX absolutely kills the database and memory on your server.

But we got to a certain prominence because of the Egyptian revoltution, and we want to continue and to expand. We redesigned the site in order to better attract and keep readers, and we need it stable and robust so we can attract advertisers and run plugins like Ad-Rotate.
