Subject: 2.0 has a highish load ...

Running 2.0 ( 2.0.2_BETA actually ) on a 3.06GHz P4 1GB ram, fairly stripped
down kernel compiled, with maxusers at 1024 and NMBCLUSTERS at 64k (cranked).
This is a webserver that can get pretty busy, but when it's just doing not much
it's still at 3 to 8 load average, which seems high to me. We run samba
to 3 clients for backend stuff, which I know is expensive, but it's unavoidable
and it works.
Anyone had experience with this? Our last box (1.6.1 stripped down), a p4
1.5GHz, ran at LA of 1.00 when doing next to nothing, although we would see 30
at peak times.
Is it working really hard because of the large # of fds it's managing?
Have I created something that is excessively big for the hardware?
Input appreciated. I'm paranoid about this box.
