We are having an opteron system that gets locked out at times with high
load. The load average touches around 20. Is there anyway to decipher the
load average taking the /var/log/messages or other syslogd notifications. We
want to take a snapshot of the system at regular intervals and try and
isolate the process that might be responsible for the system going down.
12:43:53 up 11 days, 15:03, 38 users, load average: 0.08, 0.05, 0.08
