  1. LINUX Top command

    Can somebody explain the load average values when issuing the top
    command?

    When would you be concerned about what is being displayed there?

    thanks

    $ man top

    The load averages are the average number of process ready to run during the last 1, 5 and 15 minutes. This line is just like the
    output of uptime(1).
