I did updated a server recently from centos 6.0 to 6.1 and I'm seeing higher load averages than before, since I rebooted to load new kernel apparently...
Some more details: I did update my system to 6.1 and did manually restarted some "basic" services like httpd, checked that all was working fine, checked php 5.3.3 was updated etc... all was ok, and load average was still the usual, then I had to go away for a bit and only after about 2h I did reboot to update kernel... and only after reboot I started to notice the increased load average... it's not a super huge increase, but found it strange... easy to spot the difference on Weekly and Monthly charts:
Anyone else noticed something similar? Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
