[Linux-cluster] Too large load on the login node



Hi,

We recently installed a new cluster composed of 1 login node and several computing nodes running CentOS. These nodes share a GFS2 fs made of two partitions.

A strange thing is that on each node, the activity load (as monitored by the 'top' command) is always larger than 1. After some googling, it seems someone already reported this problem but I can't see any solution.
Moreover, on the login node, the load is even larger:
top - 11:34:17 up 1 day, 22:07,  1 user,  load average: 16.19, 16.20, 16.12
while there is no cpu-intensive running processes.

Do you have an explanation?
