Re: in normal use, the load average is around 1.1.

1.1 what?

Just 1.1. Load averages are essentially[1] dimensionless.

1.1 also seems a little high; my server generally runs quite a bit lower than that (I was going to get some figures, but there is no mail at the moment, and it's actually showing 0.00).

Vic.

[1] It's actually the average number of processes in a runnable state at any point in time. You might be able to torture a unit out of that - but it's really not that important.
