/proc/loadavg vs top

Post by Sebas_Ledesma » Sat May 23, 2020 5:08 am


I'm adding a monitoring web page to check if the the hardware has any issue.
I've added temperature, storage, memory available uptime.

I'm including "load average" from /proc/loadavg.
I'm comparing the values reported here with the values of top or Mate System Monitor and it seems that the value reported here is higher.
They are obviously correlated.

I'm using the first 1minAvg * 100 / 4 (number of cores).

So, it's correct my formula or I'm missing something ?

Thanks in advance.
