The server in question is used as a file server, print server and the majority of the load goes on our CCTV system which also runs on this server.

 

Is the server OK running at the loads in the picture, especially the CPU, its running at around 80% constantly, it appears to be running okay, and the network is not running slow for accessing files etc, however, it is running 24/7/365 and i was just wondering if it will continue on without issues constantly running like this.

 

Thanks!

If the server is behaving fine as is then there is no reason why it would not continue to operate that way. However, the screen shot does not provide enough information regarding system resources it only tell us that its been up for a few days and that its consuming about 77% of its current memory. More information like disk space, CPU architecture and OS version would help better assess your server. You can get a more granular look at your system resources assuming this is a Windows server by using the windows system resource manager.

The real deal is the temperature. If the cpu is running at 80% and it is well within the temperature range then it will be fine for the foreseeable future. If it is running on the high end then you are reducing its potential lifespan.
