    understanding processes and cpu load


    I am no newbie to Ubuntu but still a novice...

    I have a server which has been running for some time now and as I have begun to dig a little more into understanding how everything works... erh does not work.

    Using nmon I noticed one process will show a CPU load of 110-120% and this would give me some buffer error.

    I believe the process is not multithreaded as ps -aux only shows one line for the process.

    Does a CPU load over 100% then mean the process is "qued" or what does this mean?
