Core Concepts: Examining Load Average

https://i0.wp.com/upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/e/e7/Intel_80486DX2_bottom.jpg/220px-Intel_80486DX2_bottom.jpgI was going to summarize this long article, but do not really have the time to do so right now, and the words are still best preserved by the original author, Ray Walker of the Linux Journal.  Yes, Yes, I realize the article is dated 2006, but pretty much all of theses concepts still apply, even if a command or /proc location behavior has slightly altered.  If I am wrong, I gladly will correct myself.  Enjoy!
