Hi,

We have a HP DL360 G7 with the VMWare hypervisor installed. We have set the BIOS to Maximum Performance and the hypervisor aswell. When I search online to get a best practise, then some people say I need to disable the C-states en P-states aswell
Will this work ?

Thank you in advance,

Marcos Santo
