Very good.

 

Re this:

 

Figure 16 – The PassMark scores for my build are at http://www.passmark.com/baselines/V8/display.php?id=52492748135what’s noteworthy IMO is the CPU Mark of 5,899, Memory Mark of 2,163, and the Disk Mark of 7,686. The low Graphic Mark’s were expected with the Matrox Chip and not really relevant IMO if this is being considered as a Home Server or NAS box.

 

I was running passmark on my system the other day, and got a CPU score of about 5900, I was a little disappointed that on the PassMark site it showed about 6600 for the E3-1220V3. Then I came across some posts about the HP (and Windows) power saving modes. By default the HP power mode (set in BIOS) is set to balanced, and also Windows. So I had a play with changing them and this is what I found (figures from memory) using PassMark:

 

HP Balanced - Windows balanced - CPU = about 5600 / Single thread = about 1000

HP Balanced - Windows High - CPU = about 7600 / Single thread = about 2000

HP High - Windows Balanced - CPU = about 7600 / Single thread = about 2000

HP High - Windows High - CPU = about 7600 / Single thread about 2000

 

So, quite a performance increase, though how that would affect power consumption I don't know, maybe one for you to check with your power meter.

 

Also, these tests were when the system was doing nothing else, so when in balanced mode it may be taking time to ramp the CPU up, and so the lower scores. When using it day to day with VM's running (as I plan too) then seeing that the CPU may be under constant load, running in Balanced mode may show better performance.

      I have been running the WHS1 pack 3 for many years.  Unfortunately it is no longer working.  I got a Proliant microserver Gen10 hoping it will run it but was unable to install the software.  The software should run on most older PCs?

      Does anyone have the WHS1 running on the Gen10?  Also my WHS1 iso is Pack 1.  If I manage to install the Pack 1 can I find on the web the upgrade to pack 3?  Would I be forever stuck at Pack 1?  Any advice would be appreciated.

      Hey guys,
       
      Has anyone around here been successful in setting up Proxmox on a Gen8 using a HBA for storage?

      Hey guys, 
       
      Bit of a random question here, and I know it depends on many factors such as what they are doing etc, but how many VMs have you guys comfortably ran on Gen8 with an E3-1265v2 and 16GB RAM? When did you start to see a performance hit compared to what the Gen8 is generally capable of?

      Hi,
       
      I’m looking for the latest Proliant SPP for Gen. 8 servers. 
       
      I’ve got a MicroServer, a DL360e and a DL380e which I’d love to update.
       
      Has anyone got the latest SPP that wouldn’t mind sharing?
       
      Thank you!

      Hi 
      My HP Proliant Microserver Gen 8 won't install HP Tools when I have running HP Smart Update Manager. 
      even when I have trying to install via Intelligent Provising, Windows Server 2019.
       
      Se image below 🙂 That's I missing.. ;-(
