load average AFU


SLES 10 with 1 cpu. The server is mostly idle when I run top. The vmstat output looks normal (to me). Is there another command I can run to find out why the load average is so high, or am I missing something in the vmstat output?

uptime
9:31am up 16:23, 6 users, load average: 7.15, 7.14, 6.69

vmstat 2
procs -----------memory---------- ---swap-- -----io---- -system-- -----cpu------
