C'est Quoi le LOADAVG ???

C'est Quoi le LOADAVG ???

The general concensus was that the load average was for all CPUs.
Basically that is the average number of processes waiting for te
entire system (independent of the number of CPUs in the system).

As a rule of thumb you could consider a load of 1 on a single CPU
server the same as a load of 4 on a 4 CPU server. (euhh, à vérifier :) )

Also it was pointed out that the load average will mean different
things depening on what kind of work the server is doing.
