    Server shuts down or restarts

    One of my servers is shutting down or restarting frequently. We have monitored the server and the behavior is normal.

    I think it could be a problem with power supply but I made ​​a test of the server temperature:

    I think the server's temperature is too high. You find a problem with the server temperature??

    Thanks you.

    That's incredibly high. Should be around 50C at the most.

    We typically see restarts with component failures, #1 PSU #2 Motherboard/onboard component. Usually when we have an overheat problem the machine locks up solid and doesn't restart itself but it is still a potential cause.

    Looking at some of the data there, I wouldn't think the numbers reported are accurate. What are the chances that the cpu has always run at exactly 249 degrees, for example? temp now, min, and max all show 249, which to me is an indication that the reporting is wrong.

    All the other temperatures that might be more accurate, are also a bit high, but probably not high enough to cause crashing like this. If you can physically get your hands on the server, that would be your best bet for seeing what's going on. Maybe some airflow is being blocked by something, or a fan has failed, or the DC is overheating... or maybe nothing is wrong at all and it's false readings. Really hard to tell from here.

    Edit: if you can reboot into the bios, typically the temperatures reported on the system health bios page are more accurate than those shown by system utilities. If you're seeing high "system" or "cpu" temperatures in the bios, then it's most likely the cause for your reboots.
