I have noticed on my system that the CPU is not really being pushed at any time (up to max 40%), but the load sometimes peaks over 1.
This is probably a very open ended question: what could be causing this? It is a server running a number of game processes which have been reniced to -7, and little else.
Also from top is shows that I am using swap_space:
Mem: 900084K total, 884804K used, 15280K free, 47192K buffers
Swap: 489972K total, 40416K used, 449556K free, 380500K cached
Is this bad? I don't know how to interpret these figures really ...
Thanks for any pointers!
