Is there a file with the load average in it on AIX? I'm looking for something like Linux's /proc/loadavg.

    I suspect you have to get it from /dev/kmem, like you did on all systems before /proc was created. – Barmar Aug 22 '14 at 19:47
  • @Barmar I don't know AIX firsthand but that's probably the case. AIX has a /proc directory, but it only contains process information (/proc/<PID> directories somewhat like Linux — closer to Solaris's), not also files about general system information. AIX's ps runs with elevated privileges. – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Aug 23 '14 at 0:00
  • I didn't find anything in /dev/Kmem, is there another file where I can access average CPU load? – diago Aug 25 '14 at 10:43
