*Nod* - not very useful for me...

But if you really need to see them just go to /exec.php on your
m0n0 and run 'top' or 'w' or 'uptime' or whatever turns you on :)

Oh - and to make a partial answer to what Manuel means here is
that load (if I remember right) has to do with processes waiting
for CPU cycles - while on m0n0 most of the CPU usage is being
used just by simple things done in the kernel.  IE - pulling
data from a network interface when an interrupt (IRQ) comes in,
moving the data between buffers, maybe doing NAT and a new CRC
computation, and sticking it out another interface.  Not sure
if the VPN stuff m0n0 uses is in the kernel or not.
