Re: monitoring load average
vmstat is great, but just one word of advice... I had some machines
running AOLserver (damn good, but i found better and faster than him),
and it had about 1024+ threads, and everything - ps, top, vmstat , which
read the processes information in /proc , skewed a lot the information,
because it took a lot of CPU (in the kernel, not in userspace). I
haven't checked if that's changed with recent kernels (my last test was
in 2.4.4, afaik, and in 2.5 there is a lot done about threads), but
whatever you use to monitor the system, be sure that it doesn't affect
it too much.
