If I type uptime, I get the load average printed onscreen, for 1, 5 and 15
minutes. I can only assume that this is measured by taking a load
"snapshot" at periodic intervals, and taking the average when uptime is
called. If this is the case, is there any way of finding out the interval
between snapshots? Or am I on the wrong track altogether?
