We have an Amigopod deployment that's experiencing very high CPU load for essentially the entire time that users are in the building. We suspect this is due to it being an open SSID with a guest T&C page so smart devices connect because it is open and all of their polling for updates gets redirected to this guest logon page and it is hammered with requests.
My question is, is there any way to drop into a Bash shell to confirm that is indeed httpd consuming the majority of the clock cycles and to investigate introducing an opcode cache to reduce server load? I've looked but all I can ever seem to get to is the Aruba menu, which is rather useless, and I can't seem to find a report where it lists the load created by each process.

System Information will show your current server load, there's also a process list there if you think httpd is at fault. How are you currently monitoring the system CPU?
Note that Amigopod already uses an opcode cache so there is no gain to be had there.
