Enabling cpu turbo freq on a Root Server

  • I have tried to enable the turbo freq on my root server but i am unable to get it to work, Is it not possible or am i doing something wrong?

    I own a RS 2000 G8 running debian with liquorix kernel and my current freq is

    CPU MHz: 2095.078

  • Hi,

    you have a virtualized server, so you cannot access or control the cpu.

    The CPU is governed by the bare metal hypervisor below (netcups OS on the dedicated virtualization host).


    If you need to overclock or access the CPU, you should rent a dedicated server --> https://www.netcup.eu/professional/dedizierte-server/


    For more information you also can read in this thread --> https://forum.netcup.de/admini…an-you-overclock-the-cpu/

    I just want to quote H6G - he already explained it to another community member. ;)


    Basically it is a lottery game if your core is running at boost clock multiplier. I certainly wouldn't count on it.

    Imagine having 23 processes, of which 5 demand 100% the calculation time of one core. Which process gets the multiplier?



    You may tell the netcup support, that this is a very misleading product description.

    Ah, i get it. Alright thank you.
    Anyone else has been having random network disconnects? for some reason my server has been disconnecting from the net and connecting back every hour or two

    Do you have a static network configuration? You should not use dhcp, make sure that your IPv4 and IPv6 address are configured as static. You should also have a look for netcups recommendations for IPv6 configuration --> https://www.netcup-wiki.de/wik…nd_Ubuntu_.28bis_17.04.29 (its german, you may have to use a translator like deepl)


    Which OS do you use?

    It's not misleading at all, no CPU runs at turbo frequency on all cores all the time. That's why it says "max. 3.9 GHz per core", not "3.9 GHz per core."

    KVM in the product description also tells you that this is virtualized hardware with limited control over the metal.

    I am using Debian will do what you suggested see will keep an eye if it helps, thanks for the suggestion.

    Its all good, i never blamed netcup for misleading.
    Just asked why do they say max 3.9ghz, and i got a pretty decent explanation.
