Any word on why the server load has prolonged spikes?

Is there a user on the affected machines trying to run needlessly 
complicated scripts?

Many years ago there was discussion here about CPU throttling on the 
on-rev servers, as we'd expect with any shared hosting service so a 
single account can't dominate the machine and deny use for others (I 
once heard someone say that they felt it was a reasonable expectation 
that they should be able to run CPU-maxing analytics programs on a 
shared host for 7 or 8 hours at a time <g>)>

It may be helpful to know what causes these unusual server loads.
