load average over 1



  • The load average for neuron os defaults above 1.1
    Is it normal for usage with evok? Or is there some issue?

    Hello @christian,
    yes, this load is quite normal. The Evok is doing quite a lot of work and as I can see, you are running InfluxDB as well (Not a good idea on the SD card by the way) so the load very well may be around 1.

    Best regards,
    Martin
