[SOLVED] Systeminfo CPU load clarification

Hello good people,

I need a bit of clarification, please…

I am using the systeminfo binding to monitor cpu load on my OH machine which incidentally does more than running OH…

The docs say:
Channel: load / Recent load in percents / Number

Now I receive a value consistenly between 0.0 and 0.4 (And sometimes peaks too. I belive the value received is accurate. That is not the question)

The question is:

Is that 0.0% to 0.4%
OR
0% to 40%

Thanks

for which measurement? the cpu#load one or the other 3 (load1, load5, load15)?

I know about the 1,5,15. Here is a good article on them: http://blog.scoutapp.com/articles/2009/07/31/understanding-load-averages

I don’t know what the cpu#load represents in the binding’s channel (I don’t use this addon)

The unit of the returned number is percent, so a value of 0.4 and a unit of ‘%’ will represent a load of 0.4%.

In this case, the channel should be named CPU utilization (not CPU load) :wink:

Thanks all

But why no (at 2.5M4) more in System Info Binding?

PS
Here is 2.4 Binding http://prntscr.com/pxfka6
And here is 2.5 http://prntscr.com/pxfkp5

Quite easy, the underlying OSHI library does not support this value any longer.
This was already answered in several other threads.
