dell esm.o load average.. Abhay_Salunke at

The esm.o has a kernel thread which executes every one second and it
does nothing except pinging the watchdog. But this shows up in the load
average calculation, though it does not actually load the CPU.
This issue is resolved in the next upcoming release of OMSA.

I see a message at

that "The OMSA team is investigating."

Has anyone figured this out yet? And can we get the ESM module released
standalone please?
