please help as i am facing problem with uptime


I am getting the uptime output as follows

12:40am up 4 day(s), 18:29, 2 users, load average: 38.97, 36.54, 34.89

The load average is too high .
I have checked the processes , but no process is taking too much cpu time

Please help

Uptime gives you the current time, the length of time the system has been up, and the average number of jobs in the run queue over the last 1, 5, and 15 minutes (according to the man page). Maybe you are looking at it in a different way. Try setting up sar to see stats from it (see the crontab for sys account) but make sure you read the man page for sar first. Also see man page for uptime.

Here is a "Sar how-to" that covers multiple OS(s).

if cpu time is not the issue --- check the swap space and other memory parameters ... sometimes just adding more swap space helps ...

... 2 users shouldn't be able to run the uptime that much unless your server is not be "big enough" for the project it is supposed to be supporting ... or very much misconfigured ...
