Hi There, Just wanted to make sure I understand Joe's statement about CPU load monitor he made here:Joe says: For example, on a heavily loaded server, with many processes competing for CPU load, the load average numbers can go above 1.0. Well above 1.0 in some case--a heavily loaded Squid proxy server can hit 5 or 6 for hours at a time. This doesn't mean that the machine is using 500% of the CPU, it just means that there are five processes that want 100% of the available CPU
I was confused because the number on the system information page in virtualmin shows load in terms of 1.0 or less (sometimes more if high load). However, the new svg graph (which looks great) shows numbers in terms of 100 +/-.
I understand the concept that the number can appear higher than 1/100 if there is high load, but on the graph page I can see spikes as high as 300 or more when the sys info page would show something like 1.7.
