Server Load Averages 1.70 1.47 1.20 | 141 Users Online (105 members and 36 guests)

1 CPU

Usually bounces between .3 - .8, when it gets busy, goes up to 1-3, goes to 5-6 with the nightly backup...

snun: a load avg of 72 means something is wrong, my box only does that when I'm getting a syn attack...

I *think* the general rule is that the load should be less than the number of processors. Anything upto twice the cpu count is not good, but not bad, anything over that is just not good - the server is being pushed too much.

So if you have 2 cpus then <2 is good, 2 to 4 is ok, 4+ is not good.

So 10+ is bad no matter how you look at it (even if you have 4 cpu's).

Our server was hitting 2+ (twin proc) pretty much constantly and it failed last week. I don't know if it was directly the cause but thankfully our new box has halved it.
100-200 online average
1.16 1.13 0.90
now \0/.

basically impossible :P well not really but super expensive.


My server has about 100 accounts on it (shared hosting) and rarely do we go over 0.5 (mind you this is a small Pentium D 3.0GHZ Dual Processor w. 2GB ram)

Now that would be useful in my house I seemed to have lowered the load by using a different chatbox system

generally; lowering the load starts with looking where the load is coming from
