Dell r650xs CPU Performance


I configure new r650xs server with two Procesor Intel® Xeon® Gold 5318Y to be a host for hyper-v 2019 guest slq server, sql developer ask me to configure CPU to work all the time on high performance mode, because now it often falls to low values:


Is there any setting, IDRAC, hyper-v host to force CPU to work with higher performance?

Yes, there are powersaving Option within BIOS and iDrac. These settings depends on how the Server was ordered, so there is no fixed default.

The 14/15.gen Server also can be configured with workload Profiles.

 found this on settings, I have something like Workload Profiles:

-HPC Profile

-Low Latency Optimized Profile

-Virtualization Optimized Performance Profile

-Virtualization Optimized Performance Per Watt Profile


where I could read about this workloads profile which to choose to SQL server?

racadm set bios.SysProfileSettings.SysProfile PerfOptimized
racadm set bios.SysProfileSettings.WorkloadProfile VtOptimizedProfile
racadm set system.thermalsettings.ThermalProfile 1

But you can click it wihin the SystemSetup or iDRAC as well. Please take notice that a reboot is needed. The above settings configure the server for "full power" and no or less powersavings.
