I have a dell 1564 laptop with an i5-M430 cpu, running arch linux. For a
long while now I've had issues with very degraded CPU performance if my cpu
temperature is very hot till around ~95 degree Celsius. The problem is that
the degraded cpu performance stays inspite of cooling down back to 60
degrees, and even multiple suspend-resume cycles. The only way to reset the
same is a reboot.
Running on LSi 9260-16i, with 16 SAS drives (Seagate Savvio 15k.2). One drive is getting media read errors, so we're going to RMA it out. Which of these is the least performance destroying option in the meantime until the new drive gets here in a day or two?
Leave the drive in, ignore the media errors, and just swap it out in a week when the new drive arrives.
I found a degraded disk, and I then added spare and chose to replace the degraded drive with the spare. Is this what I was suppose to do or did I screw that up as I don't see a way to remove the degraded disk. Remove option only shows the spares.
I just finished a build and I'm definitely getting coil whine.
The coil whine is very noticeable at 120+ FPS and even bothersome at 60 FPS in game(csgo). If I switch to a different screen in lobby of csgo its real bad for a few seconds then settles down.
I can also hear a faint noise some times when I use the mouse scroll wheel.
I work on a product that is a headless Debian Linux system with removable Intel X-25M solid state drives. Recently we noticed that the read/write performance of these drives degrades over time, and sure enough the culprit was SSD block problems, as described here.
I am currently running Ubuntu 12.04 and have a RAID setup with the boot-degraded option. If I upgrade to 14.04 will the boot-degraded option remain? I manage this server remotely and would hate to perform this upgrade only to have to take a road trip afterward to set the boot-degraded flag myself.
