[ovirt-users] ovirt reports an Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2667 v3 @ 3.20GHz as a Intel SandyBridge Family?

2015-12-18 Thread gflwqs gflwqs
Hi,
I have registered a new DELL R730 machine in ovirt 3.5.6 this server type
has a Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2667 v3 @ 3.20GHz.
When i try to add a the new host to a cluster with a haswell architecure i
get an error:
"Host xxx moved to Non-Operational state as host does not meet the
cluster's minimum CPU level. Missing CPU features : model_Haswell"

When i look at the hardware tab on the host it says:
CPU Model: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2667 v3 @ 3.20GHz
and
CPU Type: Intel SandyBridge Family

This is not a SandyBridge Family processor?

When i change the cluster to be a SandyBridge Family cluster the host can
be activated.

What are my options?
- Is it a bug i can get a fix for? (I can't upgrade to 3.6)
- Can i  force it to report correctly?
- What am i loosing in terms of functionality/performance if ovirt thinks
its a SandyBridge processor?

Thanks!
/Christian

Ok
So i can still benefit from haswell performance?

It's a bugged Haswell CPU where the TSX feature has been hardware disabled
by Intel with a microcode upgrade due to an hardware bug:

You loosed the TSX feature (Transactional Synchronization eXtensions).

It depends: if your specific applications takes advantages on the haswell
specific feature no, in general why not.
