    It really matters what kind of server you have (hardware).

    My vB runs on a dual xeon 3 GHz server and it is near impossible to notice any request time differences until the load hits 12%...

    I figured it was a load issue (I am an admin in my full time job, and I can understand...)

    That makes more sense...so if I keep it under 5, then I should be generally ok then?

    in the admincp I see this.
    Server Load Averages 3.52 3.17 2.63 | 326 Users Online (151 members and 175 guests)

    What do the three numbers represent and how is this determined?
    THey are the average CPU usage on the server. Basically it tells you how hard your server is working. Those numbers are good with that many people on. I get like 0.27 on a Dual Xeon 2.4GHz server with like 8 people on. But when you see those numbers jump higher into the 5 percent you will see a difference in the time it takes pages to load. Hope this helps!
