Hello,

we have an Open Server with Check Point R80.10 ClusterXL (two nodes) with these enabled blades: IPSec VPN, Mobile Access, Application Control, URL Filtering, IPS, Anti-Virus, Identity Awareness, Monitoring. The server has 16 CPUs but was licensed for 3.

 

Sometimes/randomly it happens the active node freezes; the console (SSH) becomes unavailable. Before resetting it forcibly I managed to launch cpview and take this screenshot from iLO (it is an HPE server):

 

 

Now I understand it should be necessary a deep investigation; but what's could be the root cause for all CPUs reaching more than 90% of usage ? Do you think 3 processors license are enough for all enabled blades ?

 

Thank you,

Luca
