NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     kvm_getloadavg -- get load average of the system

LIBRARY    [Toc]    [Back]

     Kernel Data Access Library (libkvm, -lkvm)

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <kvm.h>

     kvm_getloadavg(kvm_t *kd, double loadavg[], int nelem);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The kvm_getloadavg() function returns the number of processes in the system
 run queue of the kernel indicated by kd, averaged over various periods
 of time.  Up to nelem samples are retrieved and assigned to successive
 elements of loadavg[].  The system imposes a maximum of 3 samples,
     representing averages over the last 1, 5, and 15 minutes, respectively.

DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]

     If the load average was unobtainable, -1 is returned; otherwise, the number
 of samples actually retrieved is returned.
