I have a cron which is scheduled to record the system load using uptime for every five minutes.
At times the load average for 5 and 15 min cross 8 (max seen is 10). So is the system under heavy load? How do I calculate the system load on linux accurately and what load threshold the system can bear?
cpu info on machine (HT is not present)
cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep -c "processor" 8 cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep -c "core" 0 cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep -c "physical" 0
