    Hey.

    Everyday at midnight, my server load goes high for 30mins....whats causing it?

    I have set no crons or something, is plesk doing something at midnight always that is causing this huge 100+ loads?

    I think its statistics updating that is causing this.....how to disable that?

    Look at /etc/crontab when cron.daily scripts are executed and check these scripts from /etc/cron.daily/ directory.

    This mean that content of /etc/cron.daily directory will be started every day on the second minute of the 4 hour.
    So, daily crontab is not a reason of your problem. Check also that you haven't any crontab tasks for root with

    Its 12am now, and again server is very slow.

    Whats going on? This has to do with Plesk, as no changes were made on the server, just installed plesk server, that was it.
