You hardly have any processes stuck in disk wait ?
ps auxw | awk '$8 ~ /D/'
or similar, should tell you.
They sit there doing nothing yet add to your load average...
I've had machines have a load of 120+ after some temporary NFS issues
which have been just as responsive as with a load of 0.
Mr. Rogers could explain shoe-tying and make it seem like the coolest
thing in the world. He was our Uncle and older brother. He told us we
were special, and we knew he'd be there for us.
A cult leader, right down to the sneakers.
