Load Avg values from PAM API call GET /cspm/ext/rest/dashboard/clusterSiteInfo

CA Privileged Access Manager (PAM)


PAM Admin is running the following PAM API (GET /cspm/ext/rest/dashboard/clusterSiteInfo) and wants to know what the Load Avg values equate to:

"loadAverage": "0.22, 0.29, 0.34",



PAM 4.1.x


The Load Average is the CPU Load Average on the PAM Appliance

Ultimately our API is reading from the OS "top" command.  This value tells you the cpu load average in increments of 1 minute, 5 minutes and 15 minutes on the PAM system.

Using our default PAM system requirements of 8 CPU(s), if this value is 8 -> then your PAM CPU(s) usage is at 100%.  If it is at 5, than you are only using 5 of your CPU(s).
