    Under the status page, there is a field called System load. How do you read this information? What does it say and what those numbers respresent?

    Can someone explain?

    the 3 numbers are representative of system load at 1min/5min/15min duration. the numbers themselves are an indicator of load on the system, ie 1.5=15%(iirc)

    Thanks for the explanation. I have been watching it closely and seems like the numbers are always less than 1. What would really increase the load of the unit? Even when i am doing heavy downloading it is still 7%
