Problem

High load, nothing in the run queue (ie no processes in top showing non-trivial cpu usage).

Solution

Load is the number of processes either in the Run state (ie running now) or in the D state (ie uninterruptable for some reason).

List those processes:

# ps -Leo state,pid,args | grep '^[RD]'
D  2389 [simvision.exe]
D  2779 [ippe.exe]
D 10936 [192.168.1.231-m]
D 16091 df /hosts/stimpy/some/dir
R 32224 ps -Leo state,pid,args

Dealing with those uninterruptable processes is left as an exercise for the reader.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
