>> Understanding Linux load figures

Thu, Nov 1st 11:41pm 2007: Linux

For a little while now Russell Coker has been very deliberately using his blog to publish information-dense "mini-articles" rather than just the usual brief stream-of-consciousness stuff you see in the blogosphere. I really like his approach. It gives his blog a lot more value (and timelessness) and means he's contributing significantly to the global pool of knowledge instead of just adding to the noise. His latest post ("Load Average") is a perfect example - it's a distillation of the information he's gleaned from various sources on how to interpret the load average figures produced by the Linux kernel. Very cool stuff, Russell.
