Assume you have a system with 2 processors. Now create a cgroup and configure this group to use only 1 processor. Populate it with enough processes to give it a load average of 5 (to prove a point); it is now hopelessly slow.
I am assuming that the load average in
/proc/loadavg will then also be 5, even though a different user is free to use the other CPU with no wait time.
Is this correct? Is there a source I could quote for this?
