Thanks for the feedback, I might be able to disable one of them. However, I
have an older single processor RS/6000 and the
loadavgs etc are just as high. Hopefully some playing around will solve
it, or yet another $45,000 RS/6000 will have to be replaced
by a $1800 Linux box :-)

My machine became quite loaded down in the last few years, and this is
about what I saw.

Same, but you shouldn't see this on such a new machine.

I'm pretty sure I was running AIX 4.3 on that machine. Just a guess, but
perhaps something is up with the dual processors. Can you disable one and
run the ldm? I don't know what else to say.
