NAMEtload - graphic representation of system load average
SYNOPSIStload [-V] [-s scale] [ -d delay ] [tty]
DESCRIPTIONtload prints a graph of the current system load average to the specified tty (or the tty of the tload process if none is specified).
OptionsThe -s scale option allows a vertical scale to be specified for the display (in characters between graph ticks); thus, a smaller value represents a larger scale, and vice versa.
The -d delay sets the delay between graph updates in seconds.
FILES/proc/loadavg load average information
SEE ALSOps(1), top(1), uptime(1), w(1)
BUGSThe -d delay option sets the time argument for an alarm(2); if -d 0 is specified, the alarm is set to 0, which will never send the SIGALRM and update the display.
