Load Average on this MacBook

Get a load of this …

2011 Macbook Air, first boot after upgrading – Monterrey 12.6.3. I think 455 is the highest I’ve ever seen a load average!

It settles down after a few minutes, once all the iCloud stuff syncs.

Not bad for a 12+ year old computer, running with Opencore Legacy Patcher.


A few minutes later…

Since this processor has 4 cores, anything above 4.0 load average means it has more work to do than it has resources.
