Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

How to reduce the load average? I have two linux machines.. now my problem is that both the machines having same configuration and same processes are running in those two machines... But in one machine the load average is more than 3 and in other it is 0.5(when i am using top command).
For this load average one machine(where load average is more) is slow when i am running application on it..
So what's different in these machines hardware and software-wise? What process are you talking about? Is the process being used similarly, like the same amount of clients, in both machines? Does load stay high from the start or does it gradually settle or does it only happen when used to its limits? If this application has configuration files, is there any difference between them on the two machines? Please try to be as verbose as possible with technical details.
Distribution: Red Hat (8.0, RHEL5,6), CentOS, SuSE (10.x, 11.x, 12.2, 13.2), Solaris (8-10), Tru64, MacOS, Raspian

Same java processes are running in both the machine..

I found the load avg of one is machine is gradually increase from 2.5 to 3.. and it stat with 2.4...
and another machine it is 0.4 to 0.6...
You mentioned that there are some Java processes running. What do they do? Have you run "top" on both systems to see what processes are using the most CPU time? Perhaps one system is being hit across the network and those Java processes are working a lot harder on the high load system.
Can you cut-n-paste the "top" output from both systems into a reply to this thread? It'll help if we can see what's going on.
