I was wondering about the load average the other day and googled across
the following link:


I would like to amplify this thread and ask, are there any utilities
available to show which processes are "waiting in the run queue?" (I

run.") Occasionally my Debian box gets hammered, but top shows minimal
cpu usage, and I'd like to know the processes responsible.
