There is no interface which exports the execd retrieved load values to the
load sensor script, however the utility <sge_root>/utilbin/<arch>/loadcheck
is a standalone binary which retrieves most if not all) execd builtin load

Execept for the number of CPUs an external load sensor should overwrite
the same execd builtin load value.
