I am looking at two hosting providers for reseller hosting and when I asked for some IP's to pin, one of the two only gave me the stats page of the server they would put me on, so I just refreshed this a couple of times while writing this post:
This is not specific to reseller hosting, I could have easily not mentioned the word 'reseller' as it does not actually matter, it is a general question and thought it was suited to the more general category 'web hosting'.
Could be 24 threads. If IBM new epic servers (not actual name) could be as high as 512 threads for half cab or 2048 threads in the new full cab awesome server.. That's a little crazy for web hosting though.
24 threads isn't unrealistic..

Honestly - I'd be more concerned with Idle CPU and I/O wait% than load.
I can artificially inflate or 'deflate' the load on any server with proper access and it will have no impact on performance. Having Idle CPU and low I/O wait% is much more important.
Thanks. But I don't think there is a way for me to find out idle CPU and I/O wait% figures...as I don't own the server, I am just a reseller hosting client.
I just copied this from my WHM:
Server load 12.89 (16 CPUs)
Memory Used 56.77% (28,070,780 of 49,448,292)
Swap Used 51.64% (25,992,968 of 50,331,636)
I guess that ^ does not tell me anything new, does it?
I am not actually facing any sort of problems yet, I have only just signed up and pointed the domains at the new host's nameservers 24 hrs ago (not using private nameservers for now). So there is no actual content on those sites yet. I have just not seen these kinds of server loads before, when I was researching and comparing providers who have been sharing this type of info. So clearly, there is more to just server load .. always learning more each day
BTW...one thing I noticed: on a Whois lookup, my domains show the new nameservers correctly, but they still show my old host's location and IP! Will that change shortly?
When I ping my domains (using the MS command prompt), they show the correct IP given to me by my new host.
