What does CPU load average mean? Is it just CPU usage? Why is maximum 8.00?
- CPU usage (the number you always pay most attention to in "Windows Task Manager") is roughly CPU load average/number of cores.
- Think like this: CPU load average is how much you and other users (and other system processes) ask from CPU. CPU usage is how much it actually gives.
- Each of these servers has 8 cores, so I set maximum to 8.00. When CPU load average hits 8.00, CPU usage will be roughly 100%.
- CPU load average is possible to go above 8.00. When it does, CPU usage is probably/hopefully 100%
- For detailed explanation of CPU load average, this page is enough for you to understand it.
Notice that CPU load is not the only thing out there to make sure you have a smooth experience. However, it should give you some sense how busy these servers are. Other factors include memory usage, NFS usage/latency, network usage/latency, etc.
