Oh, you were going by the load average?  That is not a measure of system

What would be the proper way to measure system performance/load then ?


By measuring performance, i.e. how well it performs according to whatever criteria are important to you :)

You can use load measurements like load average and CPU usage to focus your performance measurements but they are not themselves performance metrics.
