Hey,

In the service status of WHM, it shows the current server load:

Server Load 0.93 (1 cpu)

I want to know what measurement "0.93" is.. is "1" full server load, or is it expressed as a % of what the server can handle?

1 means that the processor always has 1 process waiting for it. Any number above that indicates more than 1 process waiting...pretty simple. More processes waiting, the slower your machine becomes.
