    Checking what server is doing

    Hi

    Occasionally the fans in our server rev up to max !!

    When I remote to the server and have a look, the cpu's are working hard but it doesn't show what processes are using it -- I'm presuming someone is doing a search for files etc as that usually causes it to rev up.

    Is there a way to see who / what is making it do it ?

    Thanks

    Dell Poweredge by any chance? They are notorious for it. I think it might be a BIOS issue. You need to monitor the CPU and case temperatures.

    How are you looking at what the CPUs are doing? If you're just looking through task manager try Process Explorer instead (Process Explorer) which should give a more in depth view as to exactly what processes are running.

    One of these by any chance ? If so they did have a problem and require replacing something.
