How does the DMC calculate load average

Champion

Hi,

How does the DMC determine load average on a server? The numbers being reported in the Resource Usage are vastly different than what is being reported at the command-line.

Thanks. I guess the more appropriate question is should it match (or at least be close) to what standard linux commands report, or is splunk doing something different?

Which command line command did you use? top some 3rd party tool? I'm sure it's nothing wild, but just needed to make sure.
