Mysql server is consuming very high values (80-120%) every few seconds (once every 5-10 sec), is that usual? Mysql processlist is not big at all, I don't use to see more than 3 queries simultaneously.

I'm having problems with this server because mysql is getting stacked every 5-10 days, and I'm investigating possible solutions.

'i`m having a problem with this server' which server?? you can try to be as clear as possible in your question –  sosytee Sep 12 '13 at 11:13
Yes, you should also specify in which way the database is used. Wordpress? Drupal, Joomla ... ruby on rails etc –  franzlorenzon Sep 12 '13 at 11:16
When I mean "this server" it's because I work with several servers, it's a dedicated server and I don't have nothing else working there. About the database it is a vBulletin forum, php+mysql –  user192280 Sep 30 '13 at 15:11
