    Subjectloadavg always equal or above 1.00 - how to explain?
    I noticed one of my Samba + OpenLDAP servers, running kernel 
    has loadavg always equal or above 1.00, although I can't explain it.

    # cat /proc/loadavg
    1.00 1.10 1.06 1/65 782

    This server is barely used, and as I remember, loadavg was always close
    to 0.00 on that system.

    When I view the process list with top, no process takes more than 1% of
    CPU time; RAM usage is also minimal:

    # free
    total used free shared buffers cached
    Mem: 320836 241016 79820 0 23308 177232
    -/+ buffers/cache: 40476 280360
    Swap: 811272 14612 796660

    This has ~ 50 processes running (ps aux|wc -l), and ~ 50 network
    connections (netstat -tupna|wc -l), so everything normal.

    Nothing unusual in dmesg, too.

    What can cause this anormal load, and how can I spot it?
