Message 166 - Posted: 9 Jul 2024, 13:54:21 UTC

In short, in the server I have a motherboard with two CPU slots, unfortunately one of them is damaged and the equipment works at half power. In the next 2 weeks, I would like to take advantage of the test period of the project and take the motherboard to the service center, where I hope they will repair the slot for the second processor.
What will this mean?
Additional 8 cores and 16 CPU threads and the ability to add up to 128 GB of RAM <- thanks to this, the project server will receive additional resources for the future.
If the project happens to be unavailable, don't be afraid, it's just a service break <- and when not to do it, if not during testing :)
Greetings to everyone and I ask for your understanding

Any idea how long the repair or actually the entire service braek will take? In particular: longer than the deadline of our tasks? In that case perhaps it might be a good idea to stop sending out new ones before the shutdown.

If servise can do repair it will one day work <- so together with my action i planing maximum 2 days break.

ok, after sending some photos of cpu slot to the service they told that they need 2 work days.
I am going to turn off server 15th July evening and put it to service on 16th July.
I have hope I will back with repaired server on 19th July evening <- in worst case scenario second cpu slot won't be repaired and server will back with acctual parameters.

keep fingers crossed :)

Thank you for the information and updates! Hopefully they will be able to actually fix the motherboard. CPU sockets can be pretty complicated, depending on the exact problem.

In short, things that could have gone wrong ended up going wrong.
Yes, the server now has 2 processors, but the second one (which caused the server to be serviced) still has 3 pins (if I checked correctly) responsible for RAM support.
To sum up, the server now has 2 CPUs 8 cores / 16 threads, i.e. a total of 16 cores and 32 threads. Unfortunately, when it comes to RAM, instead of 256GB it has 192GB <- I don't know if I will consider replacing the 14 16GB sticks with 32GB, but that's for the future.
As far as I could, I tested the server under CPU and RAM load, the rest will unfortunately come out during use.

So far, the project has started, I have generated 2 series of tasks, and now... I'm going to sleep off two sleepless nights.

No hurry. Get some rest and figure out the rest of the configurations later on.

To put it nicely, I am very angry at the service and its actions. The server seems to be unstable and may simply hang during normal operation <- running CPS ect.
And all this despite quite rigorous and many hours of CPU, RAM, disk io, etc. stress tests when I wasn't hanging out with server
Working on it.
