LA - Load Averages

  • System load/CPU Load – is a measurement of CPU over or under-utilization in a Linux system; the number of processes which are being executed by the CPU or in waiting state.
  • Load average – is the average system load calculated over a given period of time of 1, 5 and 15 minutes.

Another words we can say that System load equal to 1 it’s mean 100% load per 1 processor/core

In Linux, the load-average is technically believed to be a running average of processes in it’s (kernel) execution queue tagged as running or uninterruptible

For detailed information you can ask Google “load averages linux”
