Blue Coat recommends the Dell server BIOS' System Profile Settings to be configured as "Performance".

For further readings, refer to Page 16 of https://bto.bluecoat.com/documentation/security-analytics-software-installation-guide-dell-hardware

Note :
Failure to configure the System Profile Settings to "Performance" might cause the Security Analytics to operate in sub-optimal mode.

When load on the Security Analytics is high, the power limit notification below could also be seen in the /var/log/messages file although this might not happen all the time :
