Every now and again my load, which is usually around 1.o or so jumps up to the 9-12 range. The system also appears to stop recording, the clients can't connect, or if they do pulling up recorded events just doesn't work.
Seems to only happen when the ambient temperature in the server room gets to be 80 degrees or higher.
This is running on the refurbished Dell server with 8TB of raw storage. We're recording about 20 cameras right now.
Any ideas? Other systems in that rack are fine with 80 degree temps. I suspect it's the hard drives as the CPU isn't taxed at all when I'm seeing that load average.
