Why is rsyslog using 99% of my CPU?

There is a bug in the rsyslog version that is bundled with certain Operating Systems (we've noticed this mainly with Ubuntu) when run on OpenVZ, but there is a simple one-liner to fix it.

Login to your VPS and run the following command as root:
service rsyslog stop && sed -i -e 's/^\$ModLoad imklog/#\$ModLoad imklog/g' /etc/rsyslog.conf && service rsyslog start

That's it, problem solved and our nodes will love you for it.
