100% core used, can it harm?
I have server with Xeon E3 CPU 4/8 cores. There is a virtual private server assigned to this computer and it takes 100% of one core permanently. So 1 of 8 is maxed out permanently.
I want to ask if this state can cause any hardware issue over the weeks or so? Would this be fixed if i assign this VPS only like 70% of a core?

You might want to install the lmsensors package so you can monitor core/cpu/ram/mobo temperatures. Assuming that the temperature doesn't get too far beyond spec, it should not be an issue. I do know that when a core is running flat out (100%) then its temp does go up. The question is, does it level out, or keep going up?Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
