LoadAVG is free software so you can download and use it as man times as you want on as many different servers. Before downloading LoadAvg you should first navigate to the location you wish to install it and run it from.


You can download LoadAVG from our download page or by clicking on this Download link. You can also copy it directly to your server from the command line as follows:

# wget http://www.videocore.com/files/loadavg.tar.gz


You will now need to uncompress the files. This should be done as the user who owns the account/filespace where the scripts are installed and not as root. To uncompress loadavg use the tar command as follows:

# tar -zxf loadavg.tar.gz

You will then need to make sure the permissions on the log folder are set to writeable so loadavg can record its data. The easiest way is as follows:

# chmod 777 logs
