Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 173740
loadavg always above 2...
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:23:13 EST
Description of problem:
It looks like, for whatever reason, loadavg adds 2 to the real runqueue average
numbers. On my completely idle system, /proc/loadavg reports 2.00 2.00 2.00.
Other than that loadavg appears to work, increasing with load and dropping again
after removing load.
This is on a Pentium M system.
The last kernel checked was kernel-2.6.14-1.1688_FC5 which still exhibited this
I have no idea how deep this goes, but i'm guessing that at least some userspace
utils will misbehave because of this.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. cat /proc/loadavg
2.xx 2.xx 2.xx ...
0.xx 0.xx 0.xx ...
can you attach the output of ps ax please ?
Problem does not seem to occur after I have updated to test1. Fact is that I did
not check for any stuck process, so that would explain this phenomenon.
ok, reopen if it reoccurs.
