Do you mean the values in uptime are greater 1.0?

I'm not sure if it can really help but I would give `vmstat (-n) 1` for a couple of seconds a try.

Maybe also the /proc/stat file can help? `cat /proc/stat && sleep 1 && cat /proc/stat`. 
The line "cpu0" shows were the jiffies (time) are spent (e.g. user system nice idle ...)  (you can also grep "cpu0" to reduce the output).
See also `man proc` (search for "stat") for help...
(note: there is also a stat file for each process (/proc/<pid>/stat))

Sorry I'm actually not on a linux box.


for Windows problems reboot
for Linux problems be root
