Depends a bit on which operating system - but try running this:
ps aux | sort -nr | head -n 10
That'll give you the top 10 most memory consuming processes. Depending on how you have it set up, it'll display which user is running which module, and how much it consumes.
You could also install a logging mechanism (if one is not installed already) that logs this.
If you're running a web host, I'd simply switch over to CloudLinux to avoid this issue.

It seems that Apache may be overloading your system, have you correctly optimized both Apache and MySQL Configuration Files? I understand you're on a VPS, it could also be that the system has been oversold and your resources have been heavily hit as a result. CloudLinux is an operating system based off of CentOS that allows for more server density and security within a hosting environment, with the capabilities of limiting resources on a per-site basis.
What specifications does your VPS currently have? i.e. RAM & CPU.
When running a hosting based environment with multiple websites it is recommended that you have access to more memory and processing capabilities.

It seems you have mysql + apache requesting a lot from your CPU. Did you already optimize the my.cnf and apache configs?

In most case someone attack your site.
Did you look at access log? If there are a lot requests from a certain IP address, just block it after investigating that IP.
