     getloadavg -- get system load averages

     #include <stdlib.h>

     getloadavg(double loadavg[], int nelem);

     The getloadavg() function returns the number of processes in the system run queue averaged
     over various periods of time.  Up to nelem samples are retrieved and assigned to successive
     elements of loadavg[].  The system imposes a maximum of 3 samples, representing averages
     over the last 1, 5, and 15 minutes, respectively.

     If the load average was unobtainable, -1 is returned; otherwise, the number of samples actu-
     ally retrieved is returned.

     uptime(1), proc(5)

     The getloadavg() function appeared in 4.3BSD-Reno.
