Not true. top(1) can fully utilize the CPU. Doing so does not put
the system under full load.
top uses small percentage of CPU power. if it would use all - it WOULD
mean full CPU load.
load average is how much processes (by average) is not doing calculations
because something is not yet available and depends of computer resources(*)
- like CPU time, disk I/O results etc..
(*) - for example waiting on tty read is not calculated to load average as
it's depends on human not computer.
exactly what i wrote. reread if you don't understand.
anyway i'm quitting this discussion as it's obvious for most people that
can read what i mean and what CPU load/utilization mean.
