We are seeing this issue on both linux (rhel6) and windows (windows 2012) systems.
But only on PowerEdge Rx20 systems.

On the windows system the taskmanager shows cpu speed 0,15 Ghz when the issue happens.
And in the eventlog a lot of these warnings :
The speed of processor 4 in group 0 is being limited by system firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for 71 seconds since the last report.
