Ever noticed the load average can become < 1.0 ?

MRTG cannot handle non-integers.  Anything between 0 and 1 (non inclusive)
is truncated to 0.

Warning (to everyone):  Multiplying by 100 does *not* make it
a percentage.

Much of what looks like rudeness in hacker circles is not intended to give
offence. Rather, it's the product of the direct, cut-through-the-bullshit
communications style that is natural to people who are more concerned about
solving problems than making others feel warm and fuzzy.
