One of our compute nodes runs ~30% slower than others. It has the exact same image so I am baffled why it is running slow . I have tested OMP and MPI benchmarks. Everything runs slower. The cpu usage goes to 2000%, so all looks normal there.

I thought it may have to do with cpu scaling, i.e when the kernel changes the cpu speed depending on the workload. But we do not have that enabled on these machines.

Here is a snippet from "cat /proc/cpuinfo". Everything is identical to our other nodes. Any suggestions on what else to check? I have tried rebooting it.
