    Server Load

    In your opinion..
    what would be considered as bad, average, good, best server load ...I'm talking about the results that appear on the Cpanel Service check like 0.75...etc..

    Bad = 100
    Good = 2-3
    Best = 0.00

    realistically speaking.....

    good is between 0 (isn't possible to have no load) and 1.5-2.

    fair would be from 2.01-5 (depending on how much ram you have)

    anything above 5 and you've got some problems....

    again it all depends on the processors and ram...the more you have the better off you'll be...

    trying to run an active VB on a shared server with 256mb ram isn't going to work too well

    Thanks all!

    I guess I lost the bet with the tech support team in the company..hehe..someone was asking about server load..and when I checked it was 0.7..so I asked tech support and they told me it's good..so I told them I'll ask here.. the sales department loses this round

    BTW that is a web server, but it's not really used anymore. I just left it on when I left work for college and nobody's used it except for me

    Don't forget to take into account the number of CPUs too.

    Load depends on the server hardware etc. Under 1 is usually good. But CPU % idle time should also be factored.

    There's a really great thread around about load. Let me do some digging...........ahhhhh, here it is - http://webhostingtalk.com/showthread...ht=server+load
