View Full Version : [ubuntu] Low CPU, low Memory but High System Load?

May 3rd, 2012, 08:14 PM
On my 12.04 system-load pendeling between 1 and 2, even if I don't do anything heavy. It is not so on 10.04.


PS. Seems that the scale on the level change, so even if the system loasd are 0,7 is that 1 is 100% of the graph. Does the system load indicator work different compared to before, where 100% could be 4-5 or someting?

I've had similar system behavior. My system load can be steady at 2 (even up to 3) for hours at a time.

Have you had any hard drive problems? My hard drive has not been making any noises, but I can't boot my system anymore. Something happened, and I'm investigating via some other threads....
