Been monitoring the system CPU usage with the 'top' command and I wonder what the time intervals is for the 3 load average figures ie is it 'load average% for the last minute'/100, 'load average% for the last 2.5 minutes'/100, 'load average% for the last 5 minutes'/100??

I have had a look at man, info, the help pages and th user and admin manual without success. Where can I find reference to what each value is?
