Stress --cpu 10000 --verbose The host still refused to go much beyond 50%. First Time Here? Ambient temperature was 15°c (59°F). your assistance much appreciate on this.
My takeaways from this are: Thermal paste really can impact performance! Please let me know what else i can do. It looks as though the white paste in the original configuration seemed to have ran down the CPU as if it melted when heated. I don't have any idea what the other white stuff would be.
If all power saving options are off the guest CPU reporting tool should match the rated CPU speed for the host. I say oddly because performance issues rarely seem to fall in line as they did here. If you cannot find your product on this site, go to HP Support Center.
I have several BL460c blades with CPU temps of ~58c, and many in the low ~40c. ProLiant DL360p) OR Browse all HPE products Please wait while we process your request. I found one host running at 65 Cel and stepped down as well. We thought this still had to be a BIOS configuration issue.
Additional batteries are affected. If the CPU's can't properly transfer the thermal energy to the heat-sinks, they are forced to clock down in order to prevent burning up. I have tried replacing the motherboard, but still had the same issue. http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/portal/site/hpsc/public/psi/advisoriesResults?sp4ts.oid=7271227 Can you guess which was which?

If the CPU's are reading 40°C then they shouldn't be clocking down. Good catch. Reply September 29, 2014 Matt Bradford Hi Bala, You can get the temperature readings from both iLO and the vSphere client. After performing the inconclusive thermal test I cleaned off the old paste and gave the prescribed 2.5ml of paste per processor.
I don't have any pictures of the coverage but I checked one and it seemed more than adequate and will only get better as heat and pressure are applied. do you think the server is behaving the same as yours? Ok. Or any other way to tell if the CPU is being throttled on a BL460c?
Otherwise I'd be looking closely at the performance of the VM's and Hosts to identify where the constraints are. After looking in iLO we saw both CPU's were running at 69°c (156°F) versus ~40°c (104°F) of other hosts running normally. Find by product name or number (e.g.

Our next test yielded results we couldn't quite explain. However, upon removing the heat-sinks I noticed the lack of care given to properly apply the thermal paste. Reply June 30, 2016 Marquis Calmes Matt, thanks for the post. Reply September 18, 2014 Matt Bradford Of course!
HP wasn't much help as they looked at the active health system logs, the test results, and the VMware logs and determined this was definitely not a hardware issue.

To prove this we noticed a second host that had one processor running at 40°c and another at 67°c.
It will look the same. Thanks for sharing your experience. The product could not be added to your profile at this time. This doesn't make any sense, the host should buckle under this sort of test.
HP said it must be a VMware configuration issue (I'm still looking for the setting to cut my host performance in half). As an aside: When we started to look at the load on the individual cores we weren't sure what to make of it. As expected, our problems went away after running the exact same tests.

I am trying to do the same test as we are having similar problems with citrix environment. I wish the HP Active Health System logs would include when CPU's clock down to prevent overheating.
Yes, our data-center is almost cold enough to be a walk in beer cooler. A dual socket BL460 series will use .2 and .3 to represent CPU 1/2 respectively (and .2 thru .5 for a quad socket BL660). If you cannot find your product on this site, go to HP Support Center. please help.
