Hello

I'm using the below code to display the load of my linux server.

$info = file_get_contents('/proc/loadavg');

Open in new window


I'd like to format the result which is this: (changes per load of course)  0.71 0.54 0.54 1/78 31161

I'd even be fine with knowing what each number means since then I can just add what each means (each set, I notice is separated by a space) above the printed result.

Thanks
Rob

Thanks santoshmotwani, but I've its not the output, I have that down correct.  I actually came across that post prior to posting here.

I need to know either what each set of numbers refers to, or how to format them differently to show up better then 5 sets of numbers.

Thanks
Rob

The first three columns measure CPU and IO utilization of the last one, five, and 10 minute periods. The fourth column shows the number of currently running processes and the total number of processes. The last column displays the last process ID used.
