That's tough question. Usuaully, the os module is a thin wrapper to native functions. os.getloadavg() calls C getloadavg(). It doesn't implement the logic to open /proc/loadavg and parses it.

Can I see the code somewhere before giving an answer? :-)

If you want to add a public function, you must open a new issue.

In case of doubt, we might start with a first implementation in libregrtest?
