KVM_GETLOADAVG(3)          BSD Programmer's Manual           KVM_GETLOADAVG(3)

NAME

     kvm_getloadavg - get load average of the system

SYNOPSIS

     #include <sys/resource.h>
     #include <kvm.h>

     int
     kvm_getloadavg(kvm_t *kd, double loadavg[], int nelem);

DESCRIPTION

     The kvm_getloadavg() function returns the number of processes in the sys-
     tem run queue of the kernel indicated by kd, averaged over various
     periods of time. Up to nelem samples are retrieved and assigned to suc-
     cessive elements of loadavg[]. The system imposes a maximum of 3 samples,
     representing averages over the last 1, 5, and 15 minutes, respectively.

RETURN VALUES

     If the load average was unobtainable, -1 is returned. Otherwise, the
     number of samples actually retrieved is returned.
