    Just shut the server down and Strat back up and see if the resource limit jumps again. Then I would go in and still killing process one by one. if this is a clients server of yours I would suspend and give them a few options. 1. Upgrade to a plan that fits your needs. 2. Move to a different web host.

    Thanks for suggesting, it’s one of my droplets on Linode, so far the support only told me its self managed droplets and run ClamAv - it too helpful :)

    You can install maldet and start scanning. If you can't solve the issue, you can hire a system admin.

    Then I'd suggest to reinstall the system. Upload the files from your backup after reinstall.

    Yes, its malware/virus scanner.

    check inside "/etc/rc.local" and other startup files. Maybe you have it attached to start up with system boot. If you see something wrong in it, remove and restart server
