How to interprete MCA in the ASM event log

How to interprete MCA in the ASM event log

Does anyone know how to interpret the MCA data?

One of our x365 server crashed with

I |SMI Hdlr |00151350 Processor MachineCheck Data a | reporting bank:0000 reporting APICID:0004 Status:8C000100 20140136 CR4:00000000
I |SMI Hdlr |00151351 Processor MachineCheck Data b b Address:00000002 CD23EE54 Timestamp:0007F36E 6E43125A
E |SMI Hdlr |00151200 MCA: Unrecoverable Error Detected 9 ProcID=01
E |SERVPROC |PFA Alert, see preceding error in system error log
I |SERVPROC |Initiating NMI

Thanks in advance.

Looks like memory---what OS? Are any of the Light Path Diagnostic lights lit? Recent patches, service packs, upgrades? I would definitely say either memory, cpu, or VRM---about a 90% chance of one of these three.

Thanks for your response.

It turned out to be problem with CPU. I really like to know about interpreting the MCA data  "a" and "b".

Does anyone know how to?

I believe you can look up the process ID (ProcID=1).
