On all linux boxes
/proc/loadavg contains the raw load for 1, 5, and 15 minutes. Nothing extra. On OS X machines this file does not exist.
Is there a file or a terminal command which will give me the 1, 5 and 15 minute load averages under OS X, similar to
/proc/loadavg on Linux? I know
w display the load averages but they have a lot more information too. I want just the load averages.
