Kinda... This is a good lesson in resource-planning and making hardware decisions across CPU lines and generations. I've had the unique experience of needing high-end CPUs for applications in a few different industries, but also the luxury of being able to test and benchmark before major architecture changes. As a result of this, my rule is to examine the ...

Load average doesn't mean what you think it means. It's not about instant CPU usage, but rather how many processes are waiting to run. Usually that's because of lots of things wanting CPU, but not always. A common culprit is a process waiting for IO - disk or network. Try running ps -e v and looking for process state flags. state The state is given by ...

If you do, you should reference the spare-part number listed on the component and order that... You can also look at the spare-part or option part number on your existing CPU kit. ...

Either with AWS, or go to Digital ...

Your "new" server is also using 2 generation old processors. They are a newer, lower power iteration of that generation. Unless you're intimately familiar with processor architecture, it's a good idea to stay within the same family and TDP when you're upgrading. Intel's nomenclature isn't always as straight forward as it could be, but the current ...
