Getting full processing power of Proliant DL 380 G3 with Linux fedora 20 - X86 - 2 processor - XFCE

Good evening. 

 

I've installed, with "redundante" configuration, of two 3,06 intel Xeon processors. Fully redundant with two PSU. I'll try put this server on folding at home. 

 

I'm using RAID 0 array.

 

I'm trying use total capacity of the two processor, but I don't know what firmware, or how configure it on proliant.....

 

kernel version:

3.11.10-301.fc20.i686

 

at this time, these are the detected options by dmesg

 But I'm not truth that both processor are working.

When the server boots up it should show you the CPU's it detected.

 

It's been a long time since I've worked on a G3 server, but you should be able to hit F10 during bootup (when it says you can) to go into the system options.  Look at the processor settings and make sure both are enabled and that all cores are enabled.  You could reset the BIOS to defaults to make sure.

 

If all of that is okay and the server is recognizing both physical CPU's and everything looks okay, then any CPU issues are on the OS side and you should follow up with their support.

Okay. I think that it's all okay to, but I mind let it be better than.

 

Even configuring proliant as "windows server" on OS options, I get

 So, maybe it's ok. I'd never know that this processor is a dual core one, lol.

 

about "hpasm" package, for fedora/centos/red hat (RPM package) do you know where do I found it?
