I would like to mesure the state of the server my app is running, and
os_mon gives me a lot of information. But I do not understand the
numbers I get for the average CPU load  as result of cpu_sup:avg1(),
cpu_sup:avg5(), cpu_sup:avg15(). It seems to be non-linear, but what
does it mean ?

To display them in a graph, i want a percentage. How can I transform
those values into a percentage ?

There is a description in the documentation, but that confused me even more ...
