Subject: Load factor Calculations

Hi All,

Have you got an idea how the load average on a sun system is calculated.
i.e. what is the formula that is used to calculate the load average on the Sun
I think that this calculation must be based on the disk I/O , CPU and memory
Can anyone put some light on this.

I will summarise

Thanx in advace
