Additional question though: What does it mean if the load is below 1? Like right now, I have 0.59 (2 CPUs) green icon. Load Averages: 0.85 0.75 0.67. (I upgraded 1 more cpu core just a few hours ago).

You pretty much corrected the way I understand server loads. I think I get it now. Thanks! I think what was happening to me was a combination of both examples. Most of the time everything's quite normal then at some time slower than usual, both having 30+ server load.

@jaume unfortunately an admin had already upgraded the CPU and RAM even before I could redo those commands (it's cloud-based so upgrades are pretty fast).

Note that I am noticing some lags but I was expecting a "catastrophic" lag instead of a minor one.

@Paul Yes I've root so I can shut exim down. light bulb moment So I guess all I've to do is: 1. Shutdown exim 2. Move files 3. Update DNS to point to new server 4. Turn on exim on new server. Is that it?
