Why is my Passenger using 100% CPU load?

My Phusion Passenger process is consuming 100% CPU even though it’s not dealing with a lot of traffic. Does anyone know why this is happening, and how I can prevent it?


It looks like an unusual issue in the Linux kernel to do with the date value. Try to SSH to the server and run:

date -s "`date`"

Then restart your server:

sudo reboot

Thanks so much, that worked!!
