[K12OSN] Load Average-

I was running top.   Also, I was running around like a chicken without it's 
head... I should have done a sort by cpu or mem but didn't.

Do you know what an acceptable load average for 10 clients doing next to 
nothing is?

Thanks,  Jim

Use "top" for showing what process or activity slows down you 
k12ltsp.  What dos it show?.
