Intel® VCA card CPU core temperatures must remain at or below 96° C (204.8° F). CPUs begin to throttle after they reach 105° C (221° F), impacting card performance. If CPU temperatures continue to rise, the card may shut down due to a CPU Thermal Trip event.
What should I do when there is a CPU Thermal Trip event?
In the event that a thermal trip occurs, system administrators must adjust the system fan speed controls to ensure increased airflow to the Intel® VCA card. To monitor the CPU core temperature, use the vcactl temp command of the vcactl utility.
