Valinor / IRC Glossary / load average

load average

load average
Unix systems keep a running total of how many processes (programs) are running; a Unix system that is not busy at all will have a load average of zero. The Unix uptime command reports the load average together with figures for the last three and fifteen minutes (usually), and also the server's uptime.
