Re: Why is my load ave so high now?

When I was running F8, my server averaged a load ave oof around 4.

Now that I'm running F10, and bittorrent is no longer running, in fact, not much of anything besides Seti Home (BOINC client running astro_pulse), my load average is up around 11 and frequently exceeds 12 (and of course when it exceeds 12, it stops receiving emails). Here's a 5 second snapshot from top:

I'm open to any WAGs right now as to the cause. Its probably something I haven't yet fixed from my preupgrade....(from F8)

You think 91% of your CPU going to astropulse has something to do with it? Try turning viewing of threads, I don't see how you would get that load unless you had multiple threads running. And you can attach a ".txt" file, so the lines don't get wrapped. In any case, it's low priority and nice so if you have anything useful running it should get the CPU.
