Current Processor speed is less than the maximum possible speed

The information in this article applies to:

  • Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010

  • Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 

  • Application-tier server

  • Data-tier server

  • Health check

The Best Practices Analyzer tool for Team Foundation Server queries a Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) class (Win32_Processor) to determine the value of the MaxClockSpeed and CurrentClockSpeed keys.

A warning appears if the value for the CurrentClockSpeed is less than the value for the MaxClockSpeed. The CurrentClockSpeed value is the current speed in megahertz (MHz) of each processor. The MaxClockSpeed is the maximum speed in MHz of each processor. If this warning appears, one or more processors on your computer is not operating at full speed.

An incorrect setting in the BIOS of the computer where Team Foundation Server is installed might be forcing the processor to run at a reduced speed in a power-saving mode. To resolve this issue, see your hardware manufacturer for information about how to view and configure system BIOS, processor, and power management settings.

For more information about power management in Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2008, open the Start menu on a computer that is running either of those operating systems. Then open Help and Support Center, and search for "Power Management" and "Power Options."
