MicroServer Gen 10 x3216 100% CPU utilization

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

I am hoping that you can help with an issue I am having with my new HP Microserver Gen 10. Apologies if I am posting in the wrong place. 

The microserver CPU is constantly running at 100%. It occasionally dips but normally is maxed out. I have build the server from new using Samsung SSD drives in a Raid 1 configuration initially. I have also tried the following.

 

1. Single SSD with windows 10 Pro

2. Single SDD with Server 2016

3. Raid 1 with Server 2016.

4. Single SATA with Windows 10 pro.

 

I have updated the firmware. I have downloaded all the latest drivers from HP's portal.

 

I have tried to get support from HP but they are providing one excuse after another to explain why they cant support the server. Currently the server is about a month or so old.

 

HP Support responses..

 

1. Windows 10 isn't supported.. ( Despite having windows 10 drivers for this server on their portal)

2. SSD drives are not supported

3. SATA drives are not supported unless they have HP branding. ( The Gen 10 is being sold on Amazon with Western Digital drives included)

 

We have tried killing of several services in Windows 10 as per articles that we have found online. We have set the Virtual Memory to refresh on reboot.

 

None of the above have achieved anything. 

 

As a result of the CPU running constantly at 100% the system is unbearably slow and cant be used to run even the most basic of tasks.

 

It looks like we have been left holding an expensive tin box.

 

I have attached a screen dump showing the CPU utilization. 

 

Any help or advice at this point would be greatly appreciated.

 

Kind Regards

Carl

Unfortunatley, the x3216 is an entry level CPU. It seems to do OK with some single function OS, NAS. Have you looked at Task Manager to see what functions are using the majority of the CPU?

To be fair, OS problems are not down to HP - their warranty is on the hardware, not whatever you have installed on it.

 

As above, you need to look initially at Task Manager then drill down to the proceses that are actually running.

 

Bear in mind, that often on a fresh install, especially of things like .NET, Windows can spend a long time in "optimising" phase which uses a lot of CPU.

      Hi everyone.
       
      New to this forum.
      I have a gen8 microserver running at home, where I have installed an SSD in the ODD sata slot. On the SSD I have installed Ubuntu Server 18.04.
      I have then created a logical volume witht the raid controller and can then boot to the SSD. So far so good.
      My problem emerges when I reboot the system. The logical volume disapears and it gives the error: "boot logical drive is configured but is missing or offline".
      I then have to go into the utility and reconfigure the logical volume. Kind of annoying, when trying to run a headless setup.

      Good day all
       
      i bought a gen 10 x3216 MicroServer and I have been trying to install windows server 2016 on it with a usb and I get it to boot into the usb with the iso on it but I can not get past the one install step where u supposed to select the drive.
       
      instead it says to download storage drivers and browse to select driver. I have downloaded every single storage driver from the hpe site or is sure does feel like it.
       
      if I try to select the driver I have to do so manually by unticking show only compatible drivers because if I leave it ticked there is nothing compatible. Iam stumped on what the correct driver is.
       
      ok so what Iam trying to do isssssss I want to install the os onto the usb that I have attached inside the box the one that is directly coming off the board. Is that a different driver ? 
       
      In bios/boot up options I can see all usb connected.
       
      can anyone please help me with this

      Greetings,
       
      I'm new to the HPMSG8 world and so far I'm loving it. I have a stock Xeon with 16G of aftermarket memory with iLO patched to 2.70. Next up is adding a RAID card, so I can put my boot SSD on the onboard RAID. I picked up a LSI SAS9211-8i on Amazon, but am struggling to flash it to IT mode on the MicroServer. Is this even possible? Unfortunately, the only other system I have with PCI slots is 32-bit.
       
      Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
