High load from minimal use

I have a vanilla forum installed and it is not used much. I have strong anti-abuse measures in place and limited plugins. I noticed the server load on index.php is very high.

Any ideas on addressing this?

    Bad performance comes from one of (in descending order of likelihood):

    1. Third-party code, most often a theme or plugin hammering the database too frequently.
    2. High traffic with no appropriate caching implemented.
    3. A server configuration problem.

    Only you currently have enough information where to look first.
