Re: why system uptime display "load average: inf, inf, inf"?

is this a possible problem with the processor?

Cpu states:
CPU LOAD USER NICE SYS IDLE BLOCK SWAIT INTR SSYS
0 0.10 5.4% 0.0% 4.0% 90.6% 0.0% 0.0% 0.0% 0.0%

Hi,

Any error messages in your /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log file?
Did you try with a reboot of your system?

Possibly, anything running on CPU 1?
If you can't reboot, ignore it.
