SubjectFwd: Re: New Metrics to measure Load average
Hi Balbir Singh,

I have done changes to the load average inside current functions.
This means without introducing any new function.

Please go through our previous correspondence in this regard.

Also I had discused this fact with Peter Williams who had introduced some
new functions in the same area.

Would do you be able to test my code?

Kind regards
Sena Seneviratne

Thanks
