Bios update

I noticed in the recent 2.3.1 bios release notes that it mentioned the following...

"Fixed possible system hang with Demand-Based Power Management enabled"

Should I disable performance/power monitoring on my servers till this new update is applied?? or is this related to some other function?

Thanks,
Stuart.

RE: Bios update

I would not worry about it unless you are seeing a specific issue related to this. Are your 1950's hanging for no apparent reason?

We have a bunch of 1950's and I'm not planning on updating to this BIOS for at least a few months.
