    When i see that my server running on powersave mode, i explore what can i do for run my server on best performance. So, i have E5-2620v4 @ 2.1 Ghz cpu's on my server, but it running at 1.2-1.6 Ghz (it looks dynamically on /proc/cpuinfo as you know)

    So, i see some optimization tips on the web and i found somethings.

    For example, if you run this command all cpu's are going to high performance mode. My cpu's running 2.1-2.8 Ghz anymore (even it uses Turbo boost anymore)
    Code (Text):
    cpupower frequency-set --governor performance

    Or here;
    CentOS 7 - CentOS 7 Tweaks and Tuned profile explanations. Learn how to make CentOS 7 fast!
    That offers;
    - Activate tuned latency-performance for CentOS 7
    - Network latency performance

    Do you have any experience for apply them ? Or do you have any optimizations for use our servers better.

    Probably best to leave it alone unless you know specifically what each option does and it's effects :)

    If folks have experience with them, then yes do share.

    Just testing on my SoYouStart E3-1245v2 server running CentOS 7.2 64bit with 4.7.5 Linux Kernel and performance governor set. Doesn't seem to help much with php 7 compile times at all though so defaults might be fine.

      driver: acpi-cpufreq
      CPUs which run at the same hardware frequency: 0
      CPUs which need to have their frequency coordinated by software: 0
      maximum transition latency: 10.0 us
      hardware limits: 1.60 GHz - 3.40 GHz

      available cpufreq governors: conservative userspace powersave schedutil ondemand performance
      current policy: frequency should be within 1.60 GHz and 3.40 GHz.
                      The governor "performance" may decide which speed to use
                      within this range.
