I have a history of whenever I start a cron job on my server, all the resources (ie Apache CPU, Apache Memory, MySQL CPU usage, MySQL Memory usage, etc...) goes through the roof and it makes certain services inaccessible, such as my Plesk control panel (503 Service Unavailable error message). For example, my Apache memory usage is (953 MB out of 2.94 GB total).

I need an expert to go in and figure out the root of this problem and supply a reason and permanent solution to this problem so it doesn't keep happening again in the future.

Experience with Linux, CentOS and dedicated servers is a must. I have also supplied a few screenshots to give you an idea of what the resource usage has been looking like the past few days
