Hi All,

i run FreeBSD 8.1-STABLE amd64 on several boxes

the hardware is much different (from asus AT5NM10-I to supermicro
servers) and what is confusing are the load average numbers i see
often ...

load averages: 1.01, 1.02, 1.14

while launching top to see, who is eating CPU, i see no process
consuming more than 0-0.1% ...

how to understand, what is the cause, la ~1.0
