Good morning.

This module provides a lightweight interface to getloadavg(3) from perl.

It has been submitted previously, in 2006, in PR #104832, and that PR was closed because alternatives exist (sysutils/p5-Sys-CpuLoad).

I'm trying again (with the current version), because p5-Sys-CpuLoad is much heavier (bringing in two extra dependent modules etc.) so all our software uses BSD::getloadavg, which comes with no extra dependencies and does the same job.

I have tried to find guidelines about "different packages with somewhat overlapping functionality", but couldn't find any specifics what FreeBSD does in such cases.

thanks.
