there isn't a 5 or 15 minute load average on some of the platforms we
support.  turns out the 1 minue load average is the only thing that we
can reliably get for all our platforms, and to avoid confusion, we
decided to standardize on that.

if you're really unhappy about that and wish you had a 5min or 15min
load average, you can use the "hawkeye" functionality and have
something run every minute that parses /proc/loadavg (assuming you're
on linux), and reports the other values you care about.  

check out the "STARTD_CRON_JOBS" setting in the manual:
