    Lower CPU Mhz in WHM, server information

    Hi guys,

    I was checking my server information today on WHM panel and this is what I saw:
    Code:
    Processor #1 Vendor: GenuineIntel
    Processor #1 Name: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6700  @ 2.66GHz
    Processor #1 speed: 1596.000 MHz
    Processor #1 cache size: 4096 KB
    
    Processor #2 Vendor: GenuineIntel
    Processor #2 Name: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6700  @ 2.66GHz
    Processor #2 speed: 2660.000 MHz
    Processor #2 cache size: 4096 KB
    Why is the Processor #1 speed labeled as 1.6 ghz? Processor #2 speed never goes down no matter how high the load is. Could it be the reason that my server can't handle 4 websites with a cumulative total of 20k unique hits per day?

    I don't think HT is on the Core2's is it?

    I have found WHM miss report cpu speed like this before. In ssh if you do cat /proc/cpuinfo, you will see both cpu's as same.

    CPUFreq is a Linux kernel subsystem which allows the clock speed of mobile CPUs (most often found in laptop computers) to be explicitly set. CPUSpeed dynamically controls CPUFreq, slowing down the CPU to conserve power and reduce heat when the system is idle, on battery power or overheating, and speeding up the CPU when the system is busy and more processing power is needed. Using CPUSpeed can significantly increase a laptop computer's battery life and significantly reduce the heat it generates while still allowing your system to perform at top speed when you need it
    Theres no reason to run it on webservers.
