Up to nelem samples are retrieved and assigned to successive elements of loadavg[]. The system imposes a maximum of 3 samples, representing averages over the last 1, 5, and 15 minutes, respectively.

DIAGNOSTICS

If the load average was unobtainable, -1 is returned; otherwise, the number of samples actually retrieved is returned.
