PHP defunct processes high load

This is usually caused by apache configuration problems. If you see this you are probably running apache as suphp. It is a fact that the root cause of this process is due to one of the bugs from apache on suphp module, normally what you should do is compile the apache and change the php mode from suphp to dso or something else, everything should be working fine again after disabled suphp from the server.
