mtrr: your CPUs had inconsistent fixed MTRR settings

Hi
I have Proliant DL 360 Server RHES 2.1 with 3GB RAM, 4CPUs
I'm seeing this dmesg messages:

I don't know why? What does it means?
In attach the /proc/mtrr file.

Hi Alessio Scazzosi,

I am not good in linux,but what i can suggest you is install psp for same or install survey utility to check for hardware error logs on same server.
Other way out are you getting any error logs at post.

If you want to validate the hardware of your server user smart start cd use maintance option and run test on your server.

Post back for further clarification.

Re: mtrr: your CPUs had inconsistent fixed MTRR settings

According to your experience, Would you recommend to use HyperThreading technology on Server with 4 CPUs?

Thanks

Hi,

Q) According to your experience, Would you recommend to use HyperThreading technology on Server with 4 CPUs?

A) Yes, but in some cases when we install more cpu's it wont show in OS. as i told i am not sure about linux. But in windows box we user following doccument to configure.

Re: mtrr: your CPUs had inconsistent fixed MTRR settings

The DL360 dosn't support 4 processors. You have a 2 processor system with hyperthreading so it only looks like 4 processor. Since I don't know jack about Linux I can't say for sure but I'd bet it dosn't like what it sees in the extra 2 processors setup by hyperthreading. Try disableing hyperthreading and see if its happy.
