DL320e v2 Performance with P222 thermal shutdown

Hi,


Since the get go (December 2013) the PCI Slot 1 temperature for the P222 reporting has been off and states 80+ degreesC.  Is it is reporting in F and DL ILO not converting to C?

Anyway I thought no bother, until last night I got 3 alerts from ILO (Critical, Info, Repaired):

EVENT (04 Feb 21:20): Automatic Operating System Shutdown Initiated Due to Overheat Condition

EVENT (04 Feb 21:21): Automatic Operating System Shutdown Due to Overheat Aborted

EVENT (04 Feb 21:21): Automatic Operating System Shutdown Initiated Due to Overheat Condition

Have checked with my fingers and it's not above 50c (generally one can't hold one's finger on something much hotter than 50C).  Is this a firmware issue with the P222?

 

Thanks,

Al

Re: DL320e v2 Performance with P222 thermal shutdown

The P42x cards do run very hot.  Their setpoint in iLO is 85ºC and iLO uses its PID (Proportional Integral Derivative) algorithm to control the system FANs and keeps the card at or below 85ºC all the time.

I'm wondering if the card is truly heating up or this is just a false reporting.  Have you ever seen the card above 85ºC ?

Re: DL320e v2 Performance with P222 thermal shutdown

Okay so it is RAID5 but it's sitting there mostly idle.  All other components are running at around 30-40 in an ambient of 19 - first time last night the ILO email alert came through.  T-Op to T-Max is quite little.

I've got another P222 on order and hopefully that one has a low profile backplate and I can swap this over to the other slot which will be more in line with the CPU HS/F exit flow.


For now I might ramp up the FAN speeds - power profile is low power so it might not be spining up fast enough to clear the air past the P222.

 

I wrote into tech support but he said unsupport drives was the issue :-/   If you can point me to 2TB SFF and 1TB SSDs then I'll take those instead.  I'm using HP Caddies.

Re: DL320e v2 Performance with P222 thermal shutdown

Unsupported drives could be an issue.  

The P222 card performs surface scan on the drives while the array is in idle and this process is enough to keep the card warm. The Slot-2 on that system is PCIe x4 only so, your P420 card will be definetely running cooler due to lower bandwidth but, the storage performance will be impacted.
