The IBM Power 780 server (9179-MHC) utilizes the latest POWER7 processor and the next-generation I/O technology designed to deliver unprecedented performance, scalability, reliability, and manageability for demanding commercial workloads.

The innovative IBM Power 780 model MHC server is a symmetric multiprocessing (SMP), rack-mounted server. This modular-built system uses one to four enclosures that are four EIA units tall and housed in a 19-inch rack. New to the model MHC server are two new, powerful POWER7 processor drawers. Each of the new drawers contains a powerful POWER7 processor card, an enhanced POWER7 I/O backplane, and a new Integrated Multifunction Card.

Each POWER7 processor card is comprised of either two single-chip module (SCM) POWER7 processors or, new to model MHC, four SCM POWER7 processors, each designed with 64-bit architecture. Each POWER7 SCM enables either up to six or eight active processor cores with 2 MB of L2 cache (256 KB per core) and 32 MB of L3 cache (4 MB per core). Each POWER7 SCM processor is available at frequencies of 3.44 GHz with six cores, 3.92 GHz with eight cores, or 4.14 GHz with four cores. This new model server is available starting as low as four active cores and incrementing one core at a time through built-in Capacity on Demand (CoD) functions to a maximum of 96 active cores.

The Power 780 model MHC is introducing two new processor drawers. One new drawer is designed with two POWER7 SCM processors, enabling up to 16 processor cores running at 3.92 GHz when booted in standard throughput optimized mode, or it can be booted in TurboCore mode with up to eight processor cores enabled running at 4.14 GHz and twice the cache per core. TurboCore mode performance per core is boosted with access to both additional cache and additional clock speed. A POWER7 model MHC configured with four of these drawers will enable up to a maximum of 64 processor cores in standard mode or 32 processor cores in TurboCore mode.

The second new processor drawer available with Power 780 model MHC systems is designed with four POWER7 SCM processors, enabling up to 24 processor cores running at 3.44 GHz when booted in standard throughput optimized mode. A POWER7 model MHC configured with four of these drawers will enable up to a maximum of 96 processor cores. TurboCore mode is not supported by this drawer. A POWER7 model MHC system does not support mixing different drawer designs.

These new processor drawers for POWER7 model MHC systems were designed with two new, integrated POWER7 I/O controllers, which enhance I/O performance while supporting a maximum of six internal PCIe adapters and six internal small form-factor, SAS DASD bays. Also, new to all processor drawers is a new Integrated Multifunction Card that provides four Ethernet ports (two 10 Gb and two 1 Gb), a serial port, and two USB ports. Virtualization of these Ethernet ports is provided through VIOS for AIX®, IBM i, and Linux™. Native (non-VIOS) usage of these ports is supported by AIX or Linux. The Integrated Virtual Ethernet or Host Ethernet Adapter is not used with the Power 780 model MHC.

Another new design feature of POWER7 model MHC is the addition of 64 GB DDR3 DIMMs. These new DDR3 DIMMs are available in both the POWER7 model MMC and MHC processor drawers, and each drawer supports up to 16 DIMM slots running at speeds up to 1066 MHz. When configured with four drawers, each POWER7 MMC and MHC model supports up to a maximum of 4.0 TB of DDR3 memory. All POWER7 DDR3 memory uses memory architecture, which provides increased bandwidth and capacity. This enables operating at a higher data rate for large memory configurations.

New as a standard feature with POWER7 model MHC is Active Memory Mirroring (AMM) for Hypervisor. Available as an option is Active Memory Expansion, which enhances memory capacity.

  • A system can have from one to four CEC enclosures, and each CEC enclosure requires one processor card. Each processor card has two SCM processors.
  • The processor card feature must be populated with POWER7 DDR3 Memory DIMMs.
  • All processor cards in the system must have the same feature number.
  • Each system must have a minimum of four active processors.
  • Processor Capacity on Demand activations will activate processor hardware only in the system serial number they are purchased for. If you move processor hardware to another system, the processor may not be functional in that system until arrangements are made to move the processor activations or purchase additional processor activations. Contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner for more information.
  • Processor feature 5003 can run in standard or TurboCore mode. TurboCore mode restricts the system from utilizing all of the processor cores in the system. A maximum of half of the physical cores can be utilized when in TurboCore mode. To utilize more than 50% of the processors present in the system, switch the system out of TurboCore mode and reboot the system. The entire system must operate in either standard or TurboCore mode.

Memory

  • Each processor card feature must have a minimum of two memory features (two features per processor card) installed. This includes inactive processor card features present in the system.
  • Each system must contain a minimum of 32 GB of active system memory. This includes inactive processor card features present in the system.
  • Memory features include a total of four DIMMs. There is a required plug location for every memory feature attached to a processor.
  • The minimum activations ordered with all initial orders of memory features 5600, 5601, and 5602 must be 50% of their installed capacity.
  • The minimum activations ordered with MES orders of memory features 5600, 5601, and 5602 will depend on the total installed capacity of features 5600, 5601, and 5602. This allows newly ordered memory to be purchased with less than 50% activations when the currently installed capacity exceeds 50% of the existing features 5600, 5601, and 5602 capacity.
  • The minimum activations ordered with all initial orders of memory feature 5564 must be 192 GB or 256 GB per each feature 5564 ordered. That is 75% of the installed feature 5564 capacity.
  • The minimum activations purchased with MES orders of feature 5564 memory, 0/256 GBs, will depend on the total installed capacity of feature 5564. This allows MES orders of feature 5564 memory to be purchased with less than 192 GB or 256 GB per each feature 5564 ordered when the system activations currently installed exceed 75% of the existing feature 5564 capacity.
  • Memory activations are distributed equally across all memory features by the same activation features 8212 (1 GB) or 8213 (100 GB).
  • Memory features 5600, 5601, 5602, and 5564 can be mixed on the same POWER7 processor module. Frequencies must be the same across the memory controller (four DIMM slots).
  • All processor cards have 16 memory DIMM slots (eight per processor) and must be populated with POWER7 DDR3 Memory DIMMs.
  • Memory Capacity on Demand activations will activate memory hardware only in the system serial number they are purchased for. If you move memory hardware to another system, the memory may not be functional in that system until arrangements are made to move the memory activations or purchase additional memory activations. Contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner for more information.
  • It is recommended that memory be installed evenly across all processor cards in the system. Balancing memory across the installed processor cards allows memory access in a consistent manner and typically results in the best possible performance for your configuration.
  • Plans for future memory upgrades should be taken into account when deciding which memory feature size to use at the time of initial system order.

I/O drawer availability

  • To further reduce possible single points of failure, POWER7 implements enhanced disk storage configuration rules. IBM configuration tools and IBM technical support personnel do not support integrated cached disk controller configurations unless they have a protected write cache. Disk controllers with write cache must protect the cache by either pairing the disk controllers (write cache replication or IOA-level mirroring) or by using an auxiliary write cache IOA. This is true for all partitions in the Power 780 using any operating systems.
  • It is recommended that any attached remote I/O drawers be located in the same rack as the Power 780 server for ease of service, but they can be installed in separate racks if the application or other rack content requires it.
  • The following list shows the I/O drawers that are supported or available on the model 780, with the correct interface to use for each of the drawers and the maximum number of attached I/O drawers:

7314-G30 PCI-X DDR 12X I/O Drawer         Supported   12X        32

The following I/O drawers are available on the Power 780:

  • The PCI-X DDR 12X Expansion Drawer (#5796) is a 4 EIA unit tall drawer and mounts in a 19-inch rack. The drawer is 22.35 cm (8.8 in) wide and takes up half the width of the 4 EIA rack space. It requires the use of a feature 7314 drawer mounting enclosure. The 4 EIA tall enclosure can hold up to two feature 5796 drawers mounted side by side in the enclosure. The drawer is 80 cm (31.5 in) deep and can weigh up to 20 kg (44 lb). The PCI-X DDR 12X Expansion Drawer has six 64-bit, 3.3 V, PCI-X DDR slots running at 266 MHz that use blind swap cassettes and support hot plugging of adapter cards. The drawer includes redundant hot-plug power and cooling. The client must select one of the two available interface adapters for use in the feature 5796 drawer: the Dual-Port 12X Channel Attach Adapter -- Long Run (#6457) or the Dual-Port 12X Channel Attach Adapter -- Short Run (#6446). The adapter selection is based on how close the host system or the next I/O drawer in the loop is physically located. Feature 5796 attaches to a host system CEC enclosure with a 12X adapter in a GX++ slot via SDR or DDR cables. A maximum of four feature 5796 drawers can be placed on the same 12X loop. Mixing features 5802 or 5877 and 5796 on the same loop is not supported. Mixing feature 5796 and 7314-G30 on the same loop is supported with a maximum of four drawers total per loop. A minimum configuration of two 12X cables (either SDR or DDR), two ac power cables, and two SPCN cables is required to ensure proper redundancy.
  • The PCIe 12X I/O drawer is a 19-inch I/O and storage drawer. It provides a 4 EIA unit tall drawer, containing 10 PCIe-based I/O adapter slots and 18 SAS hot-swap, small form-factor disk bays, which can be used for either disk drives or SSDs, organized into two groups of nine. Each group of disk slots is controlled by one or two PCIe SAS storage adapters located in a PCIe slot in the same feature 5802 as the SAS drives. A maximum of two feature 5802 drawers can be placed on the same 12X loop. Mixing feature 5802 and feature 5796 or 7314-G30 on the same loop is not supported. Feature 5877 is the same as feature 5802, except it does not support any disk bays. Feature 5877 can be on the same loop as feature 5802. Feature 5877 cannot be upgraded to feature 5802. The physical dimensions of the drawer measure 17.5 inches (444.5 mm) wide by 7.0 inches (177.8 mm) high by 28.0 inches (711.2 mm) deep for use in a 19-inch rack. The adapter slots use blind swap cassettes and support hot plugging of adapter cards. A minimum configuration of two 12X DDR cables, two dc power cables, and two SPCN cables is required to ensure proper redundancy. The drawer attaches to the host CEC enclosure with a 12X adapter in a GX slot via 12X DDR cables available in different cable lengths: 0.6 (#1861), 1.5 (#1862), 3.0 (#1865), or 8 meters (#1864). The 12X SDR cables are not supported.
  • The EXP 12S SAS Drawer (#5886) is a 2 EIA tall drawer and mounts in a 19-inch rack. The drawer can hold either SAS disk drives or SSDs. The drawer is 20.12 inches long and can weigh up to 40 pounds, without SAS disks. The EXP 12S SAS Drawer has twelve 3.5-inch SAS bays with redundant data paths to each bay. The drawer supports redundant hot-plug power and cooling and redundant hot-swap SAS expanders (Enclosure Services Manager, or ESM). Each ESM has an independent SCSI Enclosure Services (SES) diagnostic processor.

    The SAS disk drives or SSDs contained in the EXP12S are controlled by one or two PCIe SAS adapters connected to the EXP12S via SAS cables. The SAS cable will vary depending on the adapter being used, the operating system being used, and the protection desired.

    • The large cache PCI-X (#5908) uses a SAS Y-cable when a single port is running the EXP12S. A SAS X-cable is used when a pair of adapters is used for controller redundancy.
    • The medium cache PCI-X (#5902) and PCIe (#5903) adapters are always paired and use a SAS X-cable to attach the feature 5886 I/O drawer.
    • The zero cache PCI-X (#5912) and PCIe (#5901) use a SAS Y-cable when a single port is running the EXP12S. A SAS X-cable is used for AIX and Linux environments when a pair of adapters are used for controller redundancy.

    In all of the above configurations, all 12 SAS bays are controlled by a single controller or a single pair of controllers.

    A second EXP12S drawer can be attached to another drawer using two SAS EE cables, providing 24 SAS bays instead of 12 bays for the same SAS controller port. This is called cascading. In this configuration, all 24 SAS bays are controlled by a single controller or a single pair of controllers.

    The feature 5886 can also be directly attached to the SAS port on the rear of the Power 780, providing a very-low-cost disk storage solution. When used this way, the embedded SAS RAID controllers augmented by the 175 MB Cache RAID (#5662) in the system unit control the disk drives in EXP12S. A second unit cannot be cascaded to a feature 5886 attached in this way.

  • The EXP24S SFF Gen2-bay Drawer (#5887) is an expansion drawer with twenty-four 2.5-inch form-factor SAS bays. Slot filler panels are provided for empty bays when initially shipped. A feature 5887 supports up to 24 hot-swap SFF SAS hard disk drives (HDDs). It uses only 2 EIA of space in a 19-inch rack. The EXP24S includes redundant ac power supplies and two power cords. The EXP24S SFF bays use Gen2 or SFF-2 SAS bays that are not compatible with CEC SFF Gen1 SAS bays or with feature 5802 or 5803 SFF SAS bays.

    With AIX, Linux, and VIOS, the EXP24S can be ordered with four sets of six bays, two sets of 12 bays, or one set of 24 bays (mode 4, 2, or 1). With IBM i, the EXP24S can be ordered as one set of 24 bays (mode 1).

    The EXP24S SAS ports are attached to SAS controller that can be a SAS PCI-X or PCIe adapter or pair of adapters. The EXP24S can also be attached to an imbedded SAS controller in a server with an imbedded SAS port. Attachment between the SAS controller and the EXP24S SAS ports is via the appropriate SAS Y or X cables.

12X I/O Drawer Cables

  • I/O drawers are connected to the adapters in the CEC enclosure with the following cables: data transfer cables (12X DDR cables for the feature 5802 and feature 5877 I/O drawers and 12X SDR or DDR cables for the feature 5796 and 7314-G30 I/O drawers) and power control cables.
  • The first 12X I/O drawer attached in any I/O drawer loop requires two data transfer cables. Each additional drawer in the loop (up to the maximum allowed) requires one additional data transfer cable.
  • The first 12X I/O drawer attached to a system unit requires two power control cables. Each additional I/O drawer added to a system requires one additional power control cable. Each system has one power control loop. All I/O drawers attached to a system are included in the same power control loop. Power control cable loops are different in this regard from data transfer cable loops.
  • PCIe 12X Cable choices: The PCIe 12x drawer attaches to the host CEC enclosure with a 12x adapter in a GX++ slot via 12X DDR cables available in different cable lengths: 1.5 (#1862), 3.0 (#1865), or 8 meters (#1864).
  • PCI-X DDR 12X Cable choices: Each feature 5796 drawer requires one Dual-Port PCI-X DDR 12X Channel Adapter, either Short Run (#6446) or Long Run (#6457). The choice of adapters is dependent on the distance to the next 12X channel connection in the loop, either to another I/O drawer or the system unit. The following table identifies the supported cable lengths for each 12X channel adapter. I/O drawers containing the Short Range adapter can be mixed in a single loop with I/O drawers containing the Long Range adapter. In this table a "Yes" indicates that the 12X cable identified in that column can be used to connect the drawer configuration identified to the left. A "No" means it cannot be used.

1
The PCI-X DDR 12X Cable (#1829, #1861, or #1862) is limited to connecting two drawers or a server to the drawer if in the same rack and within 20 EIA. It has very limited use due to its short length. It cannot be used to connect to a system drawer because of the short length. It is intended for use between two feature 5796 or G30 drawers mounted side by side in the same enclosure (#7314). It can also be used to connect two modules located one beneath the other in a feature 7014 rack.
2
The PCI-X DDR 12X Cable (#1840 or #1865) is limited to connecting the CEC to a drawer if in the same rack and further than 20 EIA. It is possible in some limited configurations to use the 3.0 M, 12X cable (#1840 or #1865) to locate 5796 modules in adjacent racks. The cable length requires careful management of each drawer location within the rack. The best choice for connecting a feature 5796 or G30 I/O Drawer in an adjacent rack is the 8.0 M, 12X cable (#1834 or #1864).
3
The PCI-X DDR 12X Cable (#1834 or #1864) is limited to connecting a CEC to a drawer if in different racks. It is intended for use when connecting two modules that are located in adjacent racks. This cable may not be connected to the 12X Short Run adapter (#6446).

19-inch racks

The 9179-MHC and its I/O drawers are designed to mount in the 7014-T00, 7014-T42, feature 0551, and feature 0553 racks. These are built to the 19-inch EIA standard. When ordering a new 9179 system, the appropriate 7014 rack model can be ordered with the system hardware on the same initial order. IBM also makes the racks available as features of the 9179-MHC when you order additional I/O drawer hardware for an existing system (MES order). The rack features 0551 and 0553 should be used if you want IBM to integrate the newly ordered I/O drawer in a 19-inch rack before shipping the MES order.

The 9179-MHC has the following rack requirements:

  • The Power 780 may be ordered without a rack.
  • The Power 780 consists of one to four CEC enclosures. Each enclosure occupies 4U of vertical rack space. The Power 780 is designed to be installed in a 7014-T00 or 7014-T42 rack and shipped from IBM to the client. An existing 7014-T00, 7014-T42, feature 0551, or feature 0553 rack can be used for the Power 780 if sufficient space and power are available.
  • The 7014-S25 and feature 0555 rack can only support one Power 770 CEC enclosure.
  • The 36 EIA unit (1.8 meter) rack (#0551) and the 42 EIA unit (2.0 meter) rack (#0553) are available for order on MES upgrade orders only. For initial system orders, the racks should be ordered as machine type 7014, model T00 or T42.
  • For Power 780 configurations with two, three, or four drawers, all drawers must be installed together in the same rack, in a contiguous space of 8U, 12U, or 16U within the rack. The uppermost enclosure in the system is the base enclosure. This enclosure will contain the active service processor and the operator panel, if an operator panel is present in the system. If a second CEC enclosure is part of the system, the backup service processor is contained in the second CEC enclosure. The service processor is a component of the Service Interface Card in these enclosures.
  • When a Power 780 server is installed in a 7014-T00 or 7014-T42 rack that has no front door, a Thin Profile Front Trim Kit must be ordered for the rack. The required trim kit for the 7014-T00 rack is feature number 6263. The required trim kit for the 7014-T42 rack is feature number 6272. When upgrading from a 9117-MMA, trim kit 6246 or 6247 may be used for one drawer enclosure only.
  • The design of the Power 780 is optimized for use in a 7014-T00, 7014-T42, feature 0551, or feature 0553 rack. Both the front cover and the processor flex cables occupy space on the front left and right sides of an IBM 7014 or feature 055x rack that may not be available in typical non-IBM racks.
  • Acoustic door features are available with the 7014-T00, 7014-T42, feature 0551, and feature 0553 racks to meet the lower acoustic levels identified in the specification section of this document. The acoustic door feature can be ordered on new 7014-T00, 7014-T42, feature 0551, and feature 0553 racks or ordered for the 7014-T00, 7014-T42, feature 0551, and feature 0553 racks that clients already own.
  • A Power 780 door (#6250) is available on the 7014-T42 rack.

1.8 Meter Rack (#0551)

The 1.8 Meter Rack (#0551) is a 36 EIA unit rack. The rack that is delivered as feature 0551 is the same rack delivered when you order the 7014-T00 rack; the included features may be different. Some features that are delivered as part of the 7014-T00 must be ordered separately with the feature 0551. Order the feature 0551 only when required to support rack integration of MES orders prior to shipment from IBM.

2.0 Meter Rack (#0553)

The 2.0 Meter Rack (#0553) is a 42 EIA unit rack. The rack that is delivered as feature 0553 is the same rack delivered when you order the 7014-T42 rack; the included features may be different. Some features that are delivered as part of the 7014-T42 must be ordered separately with the feature 0553. Order feature 0553 only when required to support rack integration of MES orders prior to shipment from IBM.

1.3 Meter Rack (#0555)

The 1.3 Meter Rack (#0555) is a 25 EIA unit rack. The rack that is delivered as feature 0555 is the same rack delivered when you order the 7014-S25 rack; the included features may be different.

Integrated I/O

  • Each CEC enclosure must contain one Integrated Multifunction Card (#1768 or #1769).
  • The Integrated Multifunction Card's Ethernet ports can not be used for an IBM i console. Separate Ethernet adapters which can be directly controlled by IBM i without VIOS should be used for IBM i LAN consoles, if desired. Alternatively an HMC can also be used for an IBM i console.
  • The first and second CEC enclosure must contain one Integrated Multifunction Card (#1768 or #1769). The Integrated Multifunction Card is optional for the third or fourth CEC enclosure.
  • Each Integrated Multifunction Card has four Ethernet ports, two USB ports, and one serial port. Usage of the serial port by AIX/Linux is supported for MODEM call home, TTY console, and Snooping even if an HMC or SDMC is attached to the server, unlike the earlier Power 780 model MHB. Usage by the serial port to communicate with a US is not supported, like the model MHB.
  • The first and second CEC enclosures each have two HMC or SDMC ports on the Service Processor-2 (#EU05). If there are two CEC enclosures, the HMC must be connected to both service processor cards.

Disks, media, and boot devices

  • A device capable of reading a DVD must be attached to the system and available to perform operating system installation, maintenance, problem determination, and service actions such as maintaining system firmware and I/O microcode at their latest levels. Alternatively, the system must be attached to a network with an AIX NIM server configured to perform these functions.
  • System boot is supported via DASD or SSD located in the CEC enclosure, located in a DASD drawer attached to a PCI adapter or located in a 12X I/O drawer attached to a GX++ adapter, or from a network via LAN adapters.
  • The minimum system configuration requires at least one SAS disk drive in the system for AIX and Linux and two for IBM i, or if using a Fibre Channel attached SAN (indicated by feature number 0837) a disk drive is not required. Attachment of the SAN using a Fibre Channel over Ethernet connection is also supported.
  • Each CEC enclosure can support one media device when the Disk/Media Enclosure and Backplane feature (#5652) is ordered. Any supported DVD-RAM drive can be installed. Each system can support up to four media devices in the CEC enclosure -- a maximum of one in each enclosure.
  • The model MHC supports both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch SAS SFF DASD hard disks. The 3.5-inch DASD hard disks can be attached to the model MHC but must be located in a feature 5886 EXP12S I/O drawer, whereas 2.5-inch DASD hard disks may be either mounted internally or in the EXP24S SFF Gen2-bay Drawer (#5887).
  • When ordering feature 1819, you must also order feature 5662. This applies to MES orders of feature 1819 unless feature 5662 is already present in the same CEC drawer. Feature 1815 and 5662 cannot be installed in the same drawer. Feature 1819 must not be installed in a drawer unless feature 5662 is also installed.

I/O slots and adapters

  • Each Power 780 CEC enclosure has six full-length, 8X, PCIe slots and two GX++ slots.
  • There is a maximum of eight I/O expansion slots per enclosure (32 maximum per system):
     
          Slot ID   Adapter  Type  Slot size
     
          P2-C1     PCIe     8X    Full length
          P2-C2     PCIe     8X    Full length
          P2-C3     PCIe     8X    Full length
          P2-C4     PCIe     8X    Full length
          P2-C5     PCIe     8X    Full length
          P2-C6     PCIe     8X    Full length
          P1-C2     GX++
          P1-C3     GX++
    
  • The Power 780 I/O slot population rules are complex. Extensive configuration rules and checking procedures are incorporated into the Marketing Configurator ECFGPWR to help ensure a valid system configuration. Configurations generated without using the ECFGPWR configurator may create orders that cannot be built, resulting in possible order rejection or delayed delivery.
  • The maximum feature limits in the feature descriptions of this document for adapters and devices may not provide optimal system performance. These limits are given to assist with connectivity and functional assurance. The maximum values shown here apply to the features installed in the system CEC enclosures. Adding remote I/O drawers will increase these limits.

Power

  • Each Power 780 server with two or more CEC enclosures must have one Power Control Cable (#6006 or similar) to connect the Service Interface Card in the first enclosure to the Service Interface Card in the second enclosure.
  • Two ac power supplies are required for each CEC enclosure; the second power supply provides redundant power for enhanced system availability. A CEC enclosure will continue to function with one working power supply. A failed power supply can be hot swapped but must remain in the system until the replacement power supply is available for exchange.

Power distribution units

For systems installed in IBM 7014 or feature 055x racks, the following power distribution unit (PDU) rules apply (not all PDUs are available in all models of the 7014 or #055x):

  • For PDU features 7188 and 7109 when using power cord feature 6654, 6655, 6656, 6657, or 6658: Each pair of PDUs can power up to three Power 780 CEC enclosures.
  • For PDU features 7188 and 7109 when using power cord feature 6489, 6491, 6492, or 6653: Each pair of PDUs can power up to seven Power 780 CEC enclosures.

To provide full redundancy, each server drawer has two power supplies, which must be connected to separate PDUs.

Hot-plug options

  • The following options are hot-plug capable:
    • GX++ adapters.
    • System ac power supplies: One functional power supply must remain installed at all times while the system is operating.
    • Disk drives.
    • Most PCIe adapters.
    • Media devices.
  • Hot-plug procedures are contained in the Customer Information Center on IBM.com.
  • If the system boot device or system console is attached using an I/O adapter feature, that adapter may not be hot-plugged.

Logical partitioning

  • Without PowerVM, Dynamic LPAR allows one partition per processor.
  • Up to 10 partitions per processor are supported when PowerVM (#7942 or #7995) is ordered.
  • For Linux partitions, a DVD-RAM and a Media Enclosure and Backplane (#5652) are required.

Available backplane configurations

The Power 780 CEC drawer has an extremely flexible and powerful backplane for supporting disks or SSDs. The six SFF bays can be configured in three different ways to match your business needs. There are two built-in SAS controllers that can be optionally augmented with a 175 MB Cache RAID Battery Card. Two embedded SAS disk/SSD controllers are provided for redundancy or for additional flexibility. The optional 175 MB Cache RAID - Dual IOA Enablement Card (#5662) enables dual 175 MB write cache and provides dual batteries for protection of that write cache.

The backplane can be configured as one set of six bays, two sets of three bays (3/3), or three sets of two bays (2/2/2). Configuration options will vary depending upon the controller options and the operating system selected. The controllers for the six-bay (3/3) configurations are always the two embedded controllers. But if the 2/2/2 configuration is used, the two embedded controllers run the first two sets of bays (2/2) and a feature 5901 PCIe SAS adapter located in a PCIe slot in a CEC enclosure controls the third set (2). By having three controllers, you can have three boot drives supporting three partitions.

The following SSD/HDD configuration rules apply:

  • You can mix SSD and HDD drives when configured as one set of six bays.
  • If you want to have both SSDs and HDDs within a 3/3 split configuration, you must use the same type of drive within each set of three. You cannot mix SSDs and HDDs within a subset of three bays.
  • If you want to have both SSDs and HDDs within a 2/2/2 split configuration, you must use the same type of drive within each set of two. You cannot mix SSDs and HDDs within a subset of two bays. The feature 5901 PCIe SAS adapter that controls the remaining two bays in a 2/2/2 configuration does not support SSDs.

You can configure the two embedded controllers together as a pair for higher redundancy or you can configure them separately. If you configure them separately, they can be owned by different partitions or they could be treated independently within the same partition. If configured as a pair, they provide controller redundancy and can automatically switch over to the other controller should one have problems. Also, if configured as a pair, both can be active at the same time (active/active) assuming there are two or more arrays configured, providing additional performance capability as well as redundancy. If configured as a pair, the pair controls all six SFF bays and both see all six drives. The 3/3 and 2/2/2 configurations are not used with the paired controllers. RAID 0 and RAID 10 are supported and you can also mirror two sets of controller/drives using the operating system.

Adding the optional 175 MB Cache RAID - Dual IOA Enablement Card (#5662) causes the pair of embedded controllers in that CEC drawer to be configured as dual controllers, accessing all six SAS drive bays. Without the feature 5662, each of the two controllers can access only two or three SAS drive bays. With the 175 MB Cache RAID - Dual IOA Enablement Card, you can get controller redundancy, additional RAID protection options, and additional I/O performance. RAID 5 (a minimum of three drives required) and RAID 6 (a minimum of four drives required) are available when configured as dual controllers with one set of six bays.

Another expansion option available using the paired embedded controller configuration with the 175 MB Cache RAID - Dual IOA Enablement Card feature is a SAS expansion port. The SAS expansion port can add more SAS bays to the six bays in the system unit. A feature 5886 SAS disk drawer is attached using a SAS port on the rear of the processor drawer and its 12 SAS bays are run by the pair of embedded controllers. The pair of embedded controllers is now running 18 SAS bays (six SFF bays in the system unit and twelve 3.5-inch bays in the drawer). The disk drawer is attached to the SAS port with a SAS YI cable and the embedded controllers are connected to the port using a feature 1819 cable assembly. In this 18-bay configuration, all drives must be HDDs.

IBM i supports configurations using one set of six bays but does not support logically splitting the backplane into 3/3 or 2/2/2. Thus, the 175 MB Cache RAID - Dual IOA Enablement Card (#5662) is required if IBM i is to access any of the SAS bays in that CEC drawer. AIX and Linux support configurations using two sets of three bays (3/3) or three sets of two bays (2/2/2) without feature 5662. With feature 5662, they support dual controllers running one set of six bays.

The system backplane also includes a third embedded controller for running the DVD-RAM drive in the CEC drawer. Because the controller is independent from the two SAS disk/SSD controllers, it allows the DVD to be switched between multiple partitions without impacting the assignment of disks or SSDs in the CEC drawer.

Capacity on Demand

Several types of Capacity on Demand (CoD) processors are optionally available on the Power 780 server to help meet changing resource requirements in an on demand environment by using resources installed on the system but not activated.

Capacity Upgrade On Demand

Capacity Upgrade on Demand (CUoD) allows you to purchase additional permanent processor or memory capacity and dynamically activate it when needed.

On/Off Capacity on Demand

On/Off CoD enables processors or memory to be temporarily activated in full-day increments as needed. Charges are based on usage reporting collected monthly. Processors and memory may be activated and turned off an unlimited number of times, whenever you want additional processing resources. This offering provides a system administrator an interface at the HMC to manage the activation and deactivation of resources. A monitor that resides on the server logs the usage activity. You must send this usage data to IBM monthly. A bill is then generated based on the total amount of processor and memory resources utilized, in increments of Processor and Memory (1 GB) Days. Before using temporary capacity on your server, you must enable your server. To do this, order an enablement feature (MES only) and sign the required contracts.

If a Power 780 server uses the IBM i operating system in addition to any other supported operating system on the same server, you must inform the sales team placing the billing feature order which operating system caused the temporary On/Off CoD processor use so that the correct feature can be used for billing.

The following features are used to order enablement features and support billing charges on the Power 780:

                              AIX/Linux   IBM i
                  On/Off CoD  On/Off CoD  On/Off CoD

MHC    5564       7954        7377

The On/Off CoD process consists of three steps: Enablement, Activation, and Billing.

  1. On/Off CoD enablement: Description

    Before requesting temporary capacity on a server, you must "enable" it for On/Off CoD. To do this, order an enablement feature (MES only) and sign the required contracts. IBM will generate an enablement code, mail it to you, and post it on the web for you to retrieve and enter on your server. A processor enablement code lets you request up to 360 processor days of temporary capacity. If you have reached the limit of 360 processor days, place an order for another processor enablement code to reset the number of days you can request to 360. A memory enablement code lets you request up to 999 memory days of temporary capacity. If you have reached the limit of 999 memory days, place an order for another memory enablement code to reset the number of days you can request to 999.

    On/Off CoD enablement: Step-by-Step

    Prerequisite 1: The sales channel (IBM Business Partner) must sign one of the following contracts, if applicable:

    • IBM Business Partner Agreement, Distributor Attachment for On/Off Capacity On Demand
    • IBM Business Partner Agreement for Solution Providers -- Attachment for On/Off Capacity On Demand
    • IBM Business Partner Agreement -- Attachment for On/Off Capacity On Demand

    Prerequisite 2: The sales channel (IBM Business Partner or IBM Direct) must register at

    http://www.ibm.com/servers/eserver/iseries/ondemand/cod
    • Step 1: The client initiates the request for On/Off CoD use by asking the sales channel to enable the machine for temporary capacity.
    • Step 2: The client must complete and sign the following contracts. It is the sales channel's responsibility to return the signed contract to the responsible CSO organization and fax a copy to IBM at 507-253-4553 or email a copy to tcod@us.ibm.com.
      • Required: IBM Customer Agreement, Attachment for On/Off Capacity On Demand; IBM Supplement for On/Off Capacity On Demand
      • Optional: IBM Addendum for On/Off Capacity On Demand Alternative Reporting
    • Step 3: The sales channel places an order for processor or memory enablement features.
    • Step 4: The sales channel updates the website registration data (see prerequisite 2 above) with information about the client machine being enabled for temporary capacity.
      Note: The order for an enablement feature will not be fulfilled until this step is completed.
    • Step 5: IBM generates an enablement code, mails it, and posts it.
    • Step 6: The client retrieves the enablement code and applies it to the server.
  2. On/Off activation requests: Description

    When On/Off CoD temporary capacity is needed, simply use the HMC menu for On/Off CoD and specify how many of the inactive processors or how many gigabytes of memory you would like temporarily activated for some number of days. You will be billed for the days requested, whether the capacity is assigned to partitions or left in the shared processor pool. At the end of the temporary period (days you requested), you must ensure the temporarily activated capacity is available to be reclaimed by the server (not assigned to partitions), or you will be billed for any unreturned processor days (per the contract you signed).

    On/Off CoD activation requests: Step-by-step

    When there is a need for temporary capacity, use the On/Off CoD temporary capacity HMC menu for the server and specify how many of the inactive processors or how many gigabytes of memory you would like temporarily activated for some number of days. The user must assign the temporary capacity to a partition (whether or not the machine is configured for LPAR) to begin using temporary capacity.

  3. On/Off CoD billing: Description

    The contract, signed by the client before receiving the enablement feature, requires the On/Off CoD user to report billing data at least once a month (whether there is activity or not). This data is used to determine the proper amount to bill at the end of each billing period (calendar quarter). Failure to report billing data for use of temporary processor or memory capacity during a billing quarter will result in default billing equivalent to 90 processor days of temporary capacity. The sales channel will be notified of client requests for temporary capacity. As a result, the sales channel must order a quantity of billing features (one feature for each billable processor and memory day reported).

    On/Off CoD billing: Step-by-step

    The client must report billing data (requested and unreturned processor and memory days) at a minimum of once per month either electronically or via fax (stated requirement in the signed contract). At the end of each billing period (calendar quarter), IBM will process the accumulated data reported and notify the sales channel for proper billing. The sales channel places an order for the appropriate quantity of billing features (one processor billing feature ordered for each processor day used, or one memory day for each memory day utilized). IBM will ship a billing notice (notifies client of billing actions) to the ship-to address on the order as part of the fulfillment process. The client pays the sales channel and the sales channel pays IBM for the fulfillment of the billing features.

http://www.ibm.com/systems/power/hardware/cod
Utility CoD

Utility CoD autonomically provides additional processor performance on a temporary basis within the shared processor pool. Utility CoD enables you to place a quantity of inactive processors into the server's shared processor pool, which then becomes available to the pool's resource manager. When the server recognizes that the combined processor utilization within the shared pool exceeds 100% of the level of base (purchased/active) processors assigned across uncapped partitions, then a Utility CoD Processor Minute is charged and this level of performance is available for the next minute of use. If additional workload requires a higher level of performance, the system will automatically allow the additional Utility CoD processors to be used and the system automatically and continuously monitors and charges for the performance needed above the base (permanent) level. Registration and usage reporting for Utility CoD is made using a public website and payment is based on reported usage. Utility CoD requires PowerVM Standard Edition (#7942) or PowerVM Enterprise Edition (#7995) to be active on the 9179-MHC.

If a Power 780 server uses the IBM i operating system in addition to any other supported operating system on the same server, the client must inform the sales team placing the billing feature order which operating system caused the temporary Utility CoD processor use so that the correct feature can be used for billing.

Model upgrades

You can upgrade the 9117-MMA or 9179-MHB with 9179-MHC processors. For upgrades from 9117-MMA or 9179-MHB processor-based systems, IBM will install new CEC enclosures to replace the enclosures you currently have. Your current CEC enclosures will be returned to IBM in exchange for the financial considerations that are identified under the applicable feature conversions for each upgrade.

Clients taking advantage of the model upgrade offer from 9117-MMA or 9179-MHB processor-based system are required to return all components of the serialized MT-model that were not ordered via feature numbers. Any feature for which a feature conversion is used to obtain a new part must be returned to IBM also. Clients may keep and reuse any features from the CEC enclosures that were not involved in a feature conversion transaction.

Upgrade considerations

Feature conversions have been set up for the following:

  • 9117-MMA or 9179-MHB processors to 9179-MMC processors
  • DDR2 memory DIMMs to DDR3 memory DIMMs
  • New trim kits upgrading from 9117-MMA or 9179-MHB to 9179-MHC (existing trim kits are only functional for one-drawer configurations or for racks holding only I/O and no Power 780 processor enclosures)
  • PowerVM (Standard to Enterprise)
  • Drawer/Bezel
  • PCIe Crypto Gen3
  • PCIx 1.5 GB RAID

  • Feature 5786 and 7031-D24 TotalStorage EXP24 SCSI Disk Drawer
  • Feature 5886 EXP12S SAS Disk Drawer

The model MHC supports only the SAS DASD SFF hard disks internally. The older 3.5-inch DASD hard disks can be attached to the model MHC but must be located in an I/O drawer.

For 9117-MMA or 9179-MHB POWER7 processor-based servers that have the On/Off CoD function enabled, you must reorder the On/Off enablement features (#7951 and #7954) when placing the upgrade MES order for the new Power 780 server to keep the On/Off CoD function active. The On/Off enablement features should be removed from the configuration file before the MES order is started to initiate the model upgrade. Any temporary use of processors or memory owed to IBM on the existing system must be paid before installing the new Power 780 model MHC.

Features 8018 and 8030 are available to support migration of the PowerVM features 7942 or 7995 during the initial order and build of the MHC upgrade MES order. Clients may add 8018 or 8030 to their upgrade orders in a quantity not to exceed the quantity of feature 7942 or 7995 obtained for the system being upgraded. The feature 7942 or 7995 should be migrated to the new configuration report in a quantity that equals feature 8018 or 8030. Additional 7942 or 7995 features can be ordered during the upgrade.

Features 8527 and 8528 are available to support migration of DDR3 memory activations 1812 or 1813 during the initial order and build of the MHC upgrade MES order. Clients may add features 8527 and 8528 to their upgrade orders in a quantity not to exceed the quantity of feature 1812 or 1813 obtained for the system being upgraded. The 1812 or 1813 features should be migrated to the new configuration report in a quantity that equals feature 1812 and 1813. Additional 1812 or 1813 features can be ordered during the upgrade.

PowerVM

PowerVM is available on the 9179-MHC:

  • PowerVM Editions are available as a hardware feature (#7942 for Standard Edition, #7995 for Enterprise Edition). Clients select the feature that provides the level of virtualization appropriate for their workloads.
  • Micro-Partitioning allows a single processor core to be shared by up to 10 logical partitions.
  • Virtual I/O Server (VIOS) is a single-function appliance that resides in an IBM POWER5, POWER6®, or POWER7 processor-based partition. It facilitates the sharing of physical I/O resources between client partitions (AIX V5.3, or later, IBM i V6.1, or Linux) within the server. VIOS provides virtual SCSI targets and shared Ethernet adapter (SEA) virtual I/O to client LPARs.
  • Virtual SCSI (VSCSI) enables the sharing of physical storage adapters (SCSI and Fibre Channel) and storage devices (disk and optical) between logical partitions.
  • With virtual networking, a shared Ethernet adapter enables connectivity between internal and external virtual LANs (VLANs); virtual Ethernet provides high-speed connections between partitions.
  • PowerVM Lx86 supports running most x86 Linux applications within Linux partitions.
  • Live Partition Mobility, available only with PowerVM Enterprise Edition, will allow you to move a running AIX or Linux LPAR from one physical server to another with no downtime if both servers are using POWER6 or POWER7 processors. This capability can be used to evacuate workloads from a system before performing scheduled maintenance, to move workloads across a pool of different physical resources as business needs shift, and to move workloads away from underutilized machines so that they can be powered off to save on energy and cooling costs.
  • Active Memory Sharing allows memory to be dynamically moved between running partitions for optimal resource usage.

PowerVM Editions:

  • PowerVM Standard Edition (#7942) supports up to 10 partitions per core, VIOS, PowerVM Lx86, and multiple shared processor pools.
  • PowerVM Enterprise Edition (#7995) adds support for Live Partition Mobility and Active Memory Sharing.

Other PowerVM technologies include:

  • Workload Partitions (WPARs) provide isolated instances on top of a single AIX 6.1 image.
  • Live Application Mobility (available with WPAR Manager) provides the movement of a running AIX application from one server to another.
  • System Planning Tool simplifies the process of planning and deploying Power Systems LPARs and virtual I/O.

Capacity BackUp Offering (applies to IBM i only)

The Power 780 server's Capacity BackUp (CBU) designation can help meet your requirements for a second system to use for backup, high availability, and disaster recovery. It enables you to temporarily transfer IBM i processor license entitlements and 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlements purchased for a primary machine to a secondary CBU-designated system. Temporarily transferring these resources instead of purchasing them for your secondary system may result in significant savings. Processor activations cannot be transferred.

The CBU specify feature 4891 is available only as part of a new server purchase or during an MES upgrade from an existing system to a 9179-MHC. Certain system prerequisites must be met and system registration and approval are required before the CBU specify feature can be applied on a new server.

Standard IBM i terms and conditions do not allow either IBM i processor license entitlements or 5250 OLTP (Enterprise Enablement) entitlements to be transferred permanently or temporarily. These entitlements remain with the machine they were ordered for. When you register the association between your primary and on-order CBU system, you must agree to certain terms and conditions regarding the temporary transfer.

After a CBU system designation is approved and the system is installed, you can temporarily move your optional IBM i processor license entitlement and 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlements from the primary system to the CBU system when the primary system is down or while the primary system processors are inactive. The CBU system can then better support fail-over and role swapping for a full range of test, disaster recovery, and high availability scenarios. Temporary entitlement transfer means that the entitlement is a property transferred from the primary system to the CBU system and may remain in use on the CBU system as long as the registered primary and CBU system are in deployment for the high availability or disaster recovery operation.

The primary system for a Power 780 server can be:

  • 9119-FHA
  • 9119-FHB
  • 9406-595
  • 9117-MMA
  • 9406-MMA
  • 9406-570
  • 9117-MMB
  • 9117-MMC
  • 9179-MHB
  • 9179-MHC

These systems have IBM i software licenses with an IBM i P50 software tier, or higher. The primary machine must be in the same enterprise as the CBU system.

Before you can temporarily transfer IBM i processor license entitlements from the registered primary system, you must have more than one IBM i processor license on the primary machine and at least one IBM i processor license on the CBU server. An activated processor must be available on the CBU server to use the transferred entitlement. You may then transfer any IBM i processor entitlements above the minimum one, assuming the total IBM i workload on the primary system does not require the IBM i entitlement you would like to transfer during the time of the transfer. During this temporary transfer, the CBU system's internal records of its total number of IBM i processor license entitlements are not updated, and you may see IBM i license noncompliance warning messages from the CBU system. Such messages that arise in this situation do not mean you are not in compliance.

Before you can temporarily transfer 5250 entitlements, you must have more than one 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlement on the primary server and at least one 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlement on the CBU system. You may then transfer the entitlements that are not required on the primary server during the time of transfer and that are above the minimum of one entitlement.

For example, if you have an 8-core Power 780 as your primary system with four IBM i processor license entitlements (three above the minimum) and two 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlements (one above the minimum), you can temporarily transfer up to three IBM i entitlements and one 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlement. During the temporary transfer, the CBU system's internal records of its total number of IBM i processor entitlements is not updated, and you may see IBM i license noncompliance warning messages from the CBU system.

If your primary or CBU machine is sold or discontinued from use, any temporary entitlement transfers must be returned to the machine on which they were originally acquired.

Active Memory Expansion

Active Memory Expansion is an innovative POWER7 technology that allows the effective maximum memory capacity to be much larger than the true physical memory maximum. Sophisticated compression/decompression of memory content can allow memory expansion up to 100%. This can allow a partition to do significantly more work or support more users with the same physical amount of memory. Similarly, it can allow a server to run more partitions and do more work for the same physical amount of memory.

Active Memory Expansion is available for partitions running AIX 6.1, or later. Technology Level 4 with SP2 is needed.

Active Memory Expansion uses CPU resource to compress/decompress the memory contents. The trade off of memory capacity for processor cycles can be an excellent choice, but the degree of expansion varies based on how compressible the memory content is, and it also depends on having adequate spare CPU capacity available for this compression/decompression. Tests in IBM laboratories using sample workloads showed excellent results for many workloads in terms of memory expansion per additional CPU utilized. Other test workloads had more modest results.

Clients have a great deal of control over Active Memory Expansion usage. Each individual AIX partition can turn on or turn off Active Memory Expansion. Control parameters set the amount of expansion desired in each partition to help control the amount of CPU used by the Active Memory Expansion function. An IPL is required for the specific partition that is turning memory expansion on or off. Once turned on, there are monitoring capabilities in standard AIX performance tools such as lparstat, vmstat, topas, and svmon.

A planning tool is included with AIX 6.1 Technology Level 4, allowing you to sample actual workloads and estimate both how expandable the partition's memory is and how much CPU resource is needed. Any model Power Systems model can run the planning tool. In addition, a one-time, 60-day trial of Active Memory Expansion is available to provide more exact memory expansion and CPU measurements. The trial can be requested using the Capacity on Demand web page

http://www.ibm.com/systems/power/hardware/cod/

Active Memory Expansion is enabled by a chargeable hardware feature 4791, which can be ordered with the initial order of the server or as an MES order. A software key is provided when the enablement feature is ordered, which is applied to the server. An IPL is not required to enable the server. The key is specific to an individual server and is permanent. It cannot be moved to a different server.

The additional CPU resource used to expand memory is part of the CPU resource assigned to the AIX partition running Active Memory Expansion. Normal licensing requirements apply.

IBM i operating system

For clients loading the IBM i operating system, the four-digit numeric QPRCFEAT value used on the 9179-MHC is the same as the four-digit numeric feature number for the processors used in the system. For example, if the processor feature number in a system is 5003, the QPRCFEAT value for the system would be 5003.

  • The QPRCFEAT value in a Power 780 server does not change with the addition of more processors or additional CEC enclosures.
  • The QPRCFEAT value in a Power 780 server would change only if the feature number of the processors was changed due to a processor upgrade.

Top rule
Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability (RAS)
Bottom rule

The reliability of the IBM Power 780 starts with components, devices, and subsystems that are designed to be fault-tolerant. POWER7 uses lower-voltage technology that improves reliability with stacked latches to reduce soft error (SER) susceptibility. During the design and development process, subsystems go through rigorous verification and integration testing processes. During system manufacturing, systems go through a thorough testing process to help ensure high product quality levels.

The processor and memory subsystem contains a number of features designed to avoid or correct environmentally induced, single-bit, intermittent failures as well as handle solid faults in components, including selective redundancy to tolerate certain faults without requiring an outage or parts replacement.

The AIX operating system supports disk mirroring (RAID 1) and disk controller duplexing. The Linux operating system supports disk drive mirroring (RAID 1). The adapter provides RAID 0, RAID 5, RAID 6, and RAID 10 for AIX and Linux. Under IBM i OS, mirroring and data spreading are provided by the operating system and RAID 5 and RAID 6 are provided by the adapter.

Memory error-correction extensions

POWER7 memory has error detection and correction code circuitry designed to detect and correct faults that extend across multiple memory modules (DRAMs). This includes tolerating a complete DRAM chip failure (Chipkill recovery). POWER7 memory used in the Power 780 server also contains a spare memory (DRAM) per rank of memory, which can be substituted for a failed DRAM module (DRAM sparing). The spares can be used when a DRAM fault is detected and provide additional protection beyond that provided by the error detection and correction circuitry. In addition, the POWER7 memory subsystem provides scrubbing of memory to detect and correct intermittent errors.

The bus transferring data between the processor and the memory uses CRC error detection with a failed operation retry mechanism and the ability to dynamically retune bus parameters when a fault occurs. In addition, the memory bus has spare capacity to substitute a spare data bit-line for the one that is determined to be faulty.

Fault monitoring functions

On POWER7 processor-based servers, hardware failures and software detected hardware failures are recorded in the system log. An error log analysis (ELA) routine analyzes the error, forwards the event to the Service Focal Point™ (SFP) application running on the HMC, and notifies the system administrator that it has isolated a likely cause of the system problem. The Service Processor event log also records unrecoverable checkstop conditions, forwards them to the SFP application, and notifies the system administrator.

After the information is logged, if the system is properly configured, a call home service request is initiated and the pertinent failure data with service parts information and part locations is sent to an IBM service organization. Client contact information and specific system-related data, such as the machine type, model, and serial number, along with engineering data related to the failure, are sent to IBM Service. The call home feature enables IBM service representatives to preemptively bring the most-probable replacement parts when a service call is placed, reducing repair time.

Disk drive fault tracking can alert the system administrator of an impending disk failure before it affects client operation.

Mutual surveillance

The service processor monitors the operation of firmware during the boot process and also monitors the hypervisor for termination. The hypervisor monitors the service processor and will perform a reset/reload if it detects the loss of the service processor. If the reset/reload does not correct the problem with the service processor, the hypervisor will notify the operating system, and the operating system can take appropriate action, including calling for service or initiating a failover operation to the alternate service processor, if present.

Environmental monitoring functions

POWER7 processor-based servers include a range of environmental monitoring functions:

  • Temperature monitoring warns the system administrator of potential environmental-related problems by monitoring the air inlet temperature. When the inlet temperature rises above a warning threshold, the system initiates an orderly shutdown. When the temperature exceeds the critical level, or if the temperature remains above the warning level for too long, the system will shut down immediately.
  • Fan speed is controlled by monitoring actual temperatures on critical components and adjusting accordingly. If internal component temperatures reach critical levels, the system will shut down immediately regardless of fan speed. When a redundant fan fails, the system calls out the failing fan and continues running. When a nonredundant fan fails, the system shuts down immediately.

POWER7 processor availability enhancements

As in POWER6, the POWER7 processor has the ability to do processor instruction retry and alternate processor recovery for a number of core-related faults. This significantly reduces exposure to both hard (logic) and soft (transient) errors in the processor core. Soft failures in the processor core are transient (intermittent) errors, often due to cosmic rays or other sources of radiation, and generally are not repeatable. With this function, when an error is encountered in the core, the POWER7 processor will first automatically retry the instruction. If the source of the error was truly transient, the instruction will succeed and the system will continue as before. On IBM systems prior to POWER6, this error would have caused a checkstop.

Hard failures are more difficult, being true logical errors that will be replicated each time the instruction is repeated. Retrying the instruction will not help in this situation because the instruction will continue to fail. In a number of cases, systems with POWER7 processors have the ability to extract the failing instruction from the faulty core and retry it elsewhere in the system for a number of faults, after which the failing core is dynamically deconfigured and called out for replacement. The entire process is transparent to the partition owning the failing instruction. These systems are designed to avoid a full system outage.

POWER7 single-processor checkstopping

As in POWER6, POWER7 provides single-processor checkstopping for certain faults that cannot be handled by the availability enhancements described in the preceding section. This significantly reduces the probability of any one processor affecting total system availability.

POWER7 cache availability

The L2 and L3 caches in the POWER7 processor are protected with double-bit detect, single-bit correct error correction code (ECC). In addition, the caches maintain a cache line delete capability. A threshold of correctable errors detected on a cache line can result in the data in the cache line being purged and the cache line removed from further operation without requiring a reboot. An ECC uncorrectable error detected in the cache can also trigger a purge and delete of the cache line. This results in no loss of operation if the cache line contained data unmodified from what was stored in system memory. Modified data would be handled through special uncorrectable error handling. L1 data and instruction caches also have a retry capability for intermittent error and a cache set delete mechanism for handling solid failures.

Active Memory Mirroring

Active Memory Mirroring (AMM) for Hypervisor is standard on the MHC. AMM for Hypervisor mirrors the main memory used by the Hypervisor firmware. With AMM, an uncorrectable error in one copy of the mirrored memory will be corrected by use of the mirrored pair. AMM efficiently guards against system-wide outages due to any such uncorrectable error associated with firmware. With AMM, uncorrectable errors in data owned by a partition or application will be handled by the existing Special Uncorrectable Error Handling methods in the hardware, firmware, and operating system.

Special Uncorrectable Error handling

Special Uncorrectable Error (SUE) handling prevents an uncorrectable error in memory or cache from immediately causing the system to terminate. Rather, the system tags the data and determines whether it will ever be used again. If the error is irrelevant, it will not force a checkstop. If the data is used, termination may be limited to the program/kernel or hypervisor owning the data; or freeze of the I/O adapters controlled by an I/O hub controller if data would be transferred to an I/O device.

PCI extended error handling

PCI extended error handling (EEH)-enabled adapters respond to a special data packet generated from the affected PCI slot hardware by calling system firmware, which will examine the affected bus, allow the device driver to reset it, and continue without a system reboot. For Linux, EEH support extends to the majority of frequently used devices, although some third-party PCI devices may not provide native EEH support.

Predictive failure and dynamic component deallocation

Servers with POWER® processors have long had the capability to perform predictive failure analysis on certain critical components such as processors and memory. When these components exhibit symptoms that would indicate a failure is imminent, the system can dynamically deallocate and call home about the failing part before the error is propagated system-wide. In many cases, the system will first attempt to reallocate resources in such a way that will avoid unplanned outages. In the event that insufficient resources exist to maintain full system availability, these servers will attempt to maintain partition availability by user-defined priority.

Uncorrectable error recovery

When the auto-restart option is enabled, the system can restart automatically following an unrecoverable software error, hardware failure, or environmentally induced (ac power) failure.

Serviceability

The IBM Power 780 is designed with both IBM and client serviceability in mind.

Advancements such as Guiding Light LED architecture are used to control a system of integrated LEDs that lead the individual servicing the machine to the correct part as quickly as possible. With the Power 780, you can replace service parts (customer replaceable units). To do this, the Power 780 uses Guiding Light LEDs to indicate the parts that need to be replaced.

An HMC attached to the Power 780 enables support personnel (with your authorization) to remotely log in to review error logs and perform remote maintenance if required.

The I/O device and adapter diagnostics consist of stand-alone diagnostics, which are loaded from the DVD-RAM drive, and online diagnostics. Online diagnostics, when installed, are resident with the AIX operating system on the disk or system. They can be booted in single-user mode (service mode), run in maintenance mode, or run concurrently (concurrent mode) with other applications. They have access to the AIX error log and the AIX configuration data.

  • Service mode enables checking of system devices and features.
  • Concurrent mode allows the normal system functions to continue while selected resources are being checked.
  • Maintenance mode enables checking of devices and adapters.

Note: Because the 9179-MHC system has an optional DVD-RAM (#5762), alternative methods for maintaining and servicing the system need to be available if the DVD-RAM is not ordered; an external Internet connection must be available to maintain or update system microcode to the latest required level.

Concurrent maintenance guided service procedures will continue to be supported by the Repair and Verify (R&V) component of the Service Focal Point application running on the HMC. Repair procedures that are not covered by the guided R&V component will be documented and available for display on any web browser-enabled system as well as on the HMC. These procedures are available through the InfoCenter application.

Service environments

The HMC is a dedicated server that provides functions for configuring and managing servers for either partitions or a full-system partition using a GUI or command-line interface (CLI). An HMC attached to the system allows support personnel (with client authorization) to remotely log in to review error logs and perform remote maintenance if required.

Service Interface

The Service Interface allows support personnel to communicate with the service support applications in a server using a console, interface, or terminal. Delivering a clear, concise view of available service applications, the Service Interface allows the support team to manage system resources and service information in an efficient and effective way. Applications available via the Service Interface are carefully configured and placed to give service providers access to important service functions.

Different service interfaces are used depending on the state of the system and its operating environment. The primary service interfaces are:

  • LEDs
  • Operator panel
  • Service Processor menu
  • Operating system service menu
  • Service Focal Point on the HMC

In the Guiding Light LED implementation, when a fault condition is detected on the POWER7 system, an amber system fault LED will be illuminated on the operator panel. The Guiding Light system pinpoints the exact part by blinking the amber FRU identify LED associated with the part to be replaced when selected by the servicer as part of the repair procedure. This action will roll up to the enclosure locate LED and blue system locate LED on the operator panel to provide a path from the system level to the enclosure and down to the individual component to be serviced.

The enclosure and system identify LEDs will turn on solid and can be used to follow the path from the system to the enclosure and down to the specific FRU.

First-failure data capture and error data analysis

First-failure data capture (FFDC) is a technique that helps ensure that when a fault is detected in a system, the root cause of the fault will be captured without the need to re-create the problem or run any sort of extended tracing or diagnostics program. For the vast majority of faults, a good FFDC design means that the root cause can also be detected automatically without servicer intervention. FFDC information, error data analysis, and fault isolation are necessary to implement the advanced serviceability techniques that enable efficient service of the systems and to help determine the failing items.

Error handling and reporting

In the unlikely event of system hardware or environmentally induced failure, the system runtime error capture capability systematically analyzes the hardware error signature to determine the cause of failure. The analysis result will be stored in system NVRAM. When the system can be successfully restarted either manually or automatically, the error will be reported to the operating system. Error log analysis (ELA) can be used to display the failure cause and the physical location of the failing hardware.

With the integrated service processor, the system has the ability to automatically send out an alert via phone line to a pager or call for service in the event of a critical system failure. A hardware fault will also turn on the amber system fault LED located on the system unit to alert the user of an internal hardware problem. The indicator may also be set to blink by the operator as a tool to allow system identification. For identification, the blue locate LED on the enclosure and at the system level will turn on solid. The amber system fault LED will be on solid when an error condition occurs.

On POWER7 processor-based servers, hardware and software failures are recorded in the system log. When an HMC is attached, an ELA routine analyzes the error, forwards the event to the Service Focal Point (SFP) application running on the HMC, and notifies the system administrator that it has isolated a likely cause of the system problem. The service processor event log also records unrecoverable checkstop conditions, forwards them to the SFP application, and notifies the system administrator. Once the information is logged in the SFP application, if the system is properly configured, a call home service request will be initiated and the pertinent failure data with service parts information and part locations will be sent to an IBM service organization. Client contact information and specific system-related data such as the machine type, model, and serial number, along with error log data related to the failure, are sent to IBM Service.

Service processor

The service processor provides the capability to diagnose, check the status of, and sense the operational conditions of a system. It runs on its own power boundary and does not require resources from a system processor to be operational to perform its tasks.

The service processor supports surveillance of the connection to the HMC and to the system firmware (hypervisor). It also provides several remote power control options, environmental monitoring, reset, restart, remote maintenance, and diagnostic functions, including console mirroring. The service processor menus (ASMI) can be accessed concurrently with system operation, allowing nondisruptive abilities to change system default parameters.

Concurrent maintenance

The Power 780 continues to support concurrent add or repair of power, cooling, PCI adapters, media devices, I/O drawers, the GX adapter, and the operator panel. In addition, it continues to support concurrent firmware fixpack updates when possible. The determination of whether a firmware fixpack release can be updated concurrently is identified in the readme file released with the firmware.

Hot-node add, memory upgrade, and hot-node repair

With the proper configuration and required protective measures, the Power 780 server is designed for node add, memory upgrade, or node repair without powering down the system.

Power 780 servers support the adding of an additional CEC enclosure (node) to a system (hot-node add) or adding additional memory (memory upgrade) to an existing node. The additional Power 780 enclosure or memory would be ordered as a system upgrade (MES order) and added to the original system. The additional resources of the newly added CEC enclosure (node) or memory can then be assigned to existing OS partitions or new partitions as required. Hot-node add and memory upgrade make it possible to upgrade a server by integrating a second, third, or fourth CEC enclosure or additional memory into the server with reduced impact to the system operation.

In an unlikely event that CEC hardware (for example, processor or memory) experienced a failure, the hardware can be repaired by freeing up the processors and memory in the node and its attached I/O resources (node evacuation).

To guard against any potential impact to system operation during hot-node add, memory upgrade, or node repair, clients must comply with the following protective measures:

  • For memory upgrade and node repair, ensure the system has sufficient inactive or spare processors and memory. Critical I/O resources must be configured with redundant paths.
  • Schedule upgrades or repairs during nonpeak operational hours.
  • Move business applications to another server using the Live Partition Mobility feature or quiesce them.
  • Back up critical application and system state information.
  • Checkpoint databases.
Live Partition Mobility

Live Partition Mobility allows you to migrate an AIX partition running on one POWER7 system to another POWER6 or POWER7 system without disrupting services. The migration transfers the entire system environment, including processor state, memory, attached virtual devices, and connected users. It provides continuous operating system and application availability during planned partition outages for repair of hardware and firmware faults, or continuous availability during a concurrent repair that requires freeing up CEC resources.

    • 3.44 GHz, 16-core POWER7 Processor card, 0-core active (#EP24)
  • 4X Processor Activations (quantity of four for one of these):
    • One Processor Activation for Processor Feature 5003 (#5339)
    • One Processor Activation for Processor Feature EP24 (#EP25)
  • 2X DDR3 Memory DIMMs: 0/32 GB (4 X 8 GB), 1066 MHz, (#5600 or larger).
  • 32X Activation of 1 GB DDR3 - POWER7 Memory (#8212).
  • For AIX and Linux, 1X disk drive and for IBM i 2X disk drive: Formatted to match the system Primary O/S indicator selected, or if using a Fibre Channel attached SAN (indicated by #0837) a disk drive is not required.
  • 1X Language Group (selected by the client).
  • 1X Removable Media Device (#5762): Optionally orderable, a stand-alone system (not network-attached) would require this feature.
  • 1X HMC is required for every 9179-MHC; however, a communal HMC is acceptable.

Notes:

  • Additional optional features can be added, as desired.
  • Feature-coded racks are allowed for I/O expansion only.
  • A machine type/model rack, if desired, should be ordered as the primary rack.
  • A minimum number of four processor activations must be ordered per system.
  • The minimum activations ordered with all initial orders of memory features 5600, 5601, and 5602 must be 50% of their installed capacity.
  • The minimum activations ordered with MES orders of memory features 5600, 5601, and 5602 will depend on the total installed capacity of features 5600, 5601, and 5602. This allows newly ordered memory to be purchased with less than 50% activations when the currently installed capacity exceeds 50% of the existing features 5600, 5601, and 5602 capacity.
  • The minimum activations ordered with all initial orders of memory feature 5564 must be 192 GB or 256 GB per each feature 5564 ordered. that is 75% of the installed feature 5564 capacity.
  • The minimum activations purchased with MES orders of feature 5564 memory, 0/256 GBs, will depend on the total installed capacity of feature 5564. This allows MES orders of feature 5564 memory to be purchased with less than 192 GB or 256 GB per each feature 5564 ordered when the system activations currently installed exceed 75% of the existing feature 5564 capacity.
  • Memory activations are distributed equally across all memory features by the same activation features 8212 (1 GB) or 8213 (100 GB).

Hardware Management Console (HMC) Machine Code

If attaching an HMC to a new server or adding function to an existing server that requires a firmware update, the HMC machine code may need to be updated.

To determine the HMC machine code level required for the firmware level on any server, go to the following website to access the Fix Level Recommendation Tool (FLRT) on or after the planned availability date for this product. FLRT will identify the correct HMC machine code for the selected system firmware level.

https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/hmc/home.html

If a single HMC is attached to multiple servers, the HMC machine code level must be updated to the server with the most recent firmware level. All prior levels of server firmware are supported with the latest HMC machine code level.

An HMC is required to manage POWER7 processor-based servers implementing partitioning. Multiple POWER7 processor-based servers can be supported by a single HMC.

If an HMC is used to manage any POWER7 processor-based server, the HMC must be a CR3, or later, model rack-mount HMC or C05, or later, deskside HMC.

When IBM Systems Director is used to manage an HMC or if the HMC manages more than 254 partitions, the HMC should have 3 GB of RAM minimum and be CR3 model, or later, rack-mount or C06, or later, deskside.

Certain Machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. If applicable to your product, parts considered Customer Replaceable Units (CRUs) will be provided as part of the machine's standard warranty service.

Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country and location-specific information.

Customer replacement parts

Tier 1 CRUs are those parts which require minimal effort, skill, or experience in order to service. Tier 1 items are mandatory CRUs when base 9x5 next-business-day warranty or maintenance is specified in the terms and conditions contract and is in force. However, if the customer elects not to perform Tier 1 service, an IBM SSR may be contracted at an additional service charge to perform the service. If the customer has 7x24 warranty or maintenance in force, then all parts, Tier 1 and Tier 2, may be replaced or serviced by a SSR without an additional charge.

The following parts have been designated as Tier 1 CRUs:

  • Keyboard
  • Mouse
  • Display
  • Mounting hardware
  • Fans
  • Line power cord
  • Operator panel
  • Power supply
  • DASD
  • Ethernet and IB adapters
  • RAID battery card and battery
  • Slim line DVD
  • FSP Card
  • Internal to External SAS Cable
  • PCI Adapter Cassette
  • DVD
  • TOD Battery
  • Clock Pass-thru card

Tier 2 CRUs require more effort than Tier 1 CRUs and also require a higher level of skill or experience when being serviced by the customer. As with Tier 1 parts, if the customer elects not to perform Tier 2 service, an IBM SSR may be contracted at an additional service charge to perform the service. If the customer has 7x24 warranty or maintenance in force, then all parts will be replaced or serviced by an SSR without an additional charge.

The following parts have been designated as Tier 2 CRUs:

  • FSP Cable
  • PCI Adapter
  • SAS DASD/Media backplane
  • SMP Cable
  • IO Planar
On-site Service

IBM will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the IBM machine. The area must be clean, well-lit, and suitable for the purpose.

Service level is:

  • 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 4-hour average, same day response.

Non-IBM parts service

IBM is now shipping machines with selected non-IBM parts that contain an IBM field replaceable unit (FRU) part number label. These parts are to be serviced during the IBM machine warranty period. IBM is covering the service on these selected non-IBM parts as an accommodation to their customers, and normal warranty service procedures for the IBM machine apply.

Warranty service upgrades

During the warranty period, warranty service upgrades provide an enhanced level of On-site Service for an additional charge. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. See the Warranty service upgrades section for additional details.

IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically by access to an IBM website. Certain Machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts.

Maintenance services

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the types of maintenance service specified for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically, via an IBM website. Certain Machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of maintenance service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country and location-specific information. The following service selections are available as maintenance options for your machine type.

On-site Service

IBM will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the IBM machine. The area must be clean, well-lit, and suitable for the purpose.

Service levels are:

  • 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 4-hour average response
  • 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 2-hour average response
Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU) Service

If your problem can be resolved with a CRU (for example, keyboard, mouse, speaker, memory, or hard disk drive), and depending upon the maintenance service offerings in your geography, IBM will ship the CRU to you for you to install. CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with your machine and are available from IBM upon your request.

Based upon availability, CRUs will be shipped for next business day delivery. IBM specifies, in the materials shipped with a replacement CRU, whether a defective CRU must be returned to IBM. When return is required, 1) return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU, and 2) you may be charged for the replacement CRU if IBM does not receive the defective CRU within 15 days of your receipt of the replacement.

CRUs may be provided as part of the machine's standard maintenance service except that you may install a CRU yourself or request IBM installation, at no additional charge, under any of the On-site Service levels specified above.

Non-IBM parts service

Under certain conditions, IBM provides services for selected non-IBM parts at no additional charge for machines that are covered under warranty service upgrades or maintenance services.

This service includes hardware problem determination (PD) on the non-IBM parts (for example, adapter cards, PCMCIA cards, disk drives, memory) installed within IBM machines and provides the labor to replace the failing parts at no additional charge.

If IBM has a Technical Service Agreement with the manufacturer of the failing part, or if the failing part is an accommodations part (a part with an IBM FRU label), IBM may also source and replace the failing part at no additional charge. For all other non-IBM parts, customers are responsible for sourcing the parts. Installation labor is provided at no additional charge, if the machine is covered under a warranty service upgrade or a maintenance service.

IBM Global Financing

IBM Global Financing offers competitive financing to credit-qualified customers to assist them in acquiring IT solutions. Offerings include financing for IT acquisition, including hardware, software, and services, from both IBM and other manufacturers or vendors. Offerings (for all customer segments: small, medium, and large enterprise), rates, terms, and availability can vary by country. Contact your local IBM Global Financing organization or visit

http://www-03.ibm.com/financing/us/index.html

IBM Global Financing offerings are provided through IBM Credit LLC in the United States, and other IBM subsidiaries and divisions worldwide to qualified commercial and government customers. Rates are based on a customer's credit rating, financing terms, offering type, equipment type, and options, and may vary by country. Other restrictions may apply. Rates and offerings are subject to change, extension, or withdrawal without notice.

IBM Global Financing offers competitive financing of hardware, software, and services, from both IBM and other manufacturers or vendors.

Financing Power Systems solutions from IBM Global Financing can help you acquire more from existing budgets while helping you conserve cash, and provide a comprehensive end-to-end multivendor IT financing solution. This end-to-end approach helps form the foundation of a cohesive technology management strategy that can be superior to ownership. IBM can help reduce costs compared to purchase, increase ROI, lower total cost of ownership, minimize risk, improve accountability, and enable you to focus on your core business strategies while giving you the ability to make flexible equipment decisions throughout the entire technology life cycle.

Through the IBM Project Financing™ program, credit-qualified customers can obtain funding to design and build your entire IT infrastructure, aligning up-front costs to expected project benefits. This could include financing for select facility design and construction, building and structural upgrades, infrastructure equipment, IT hardware, software, services, and consulting. Through our Global Asset Recovery Services' buyback program you can obtain cash for marketable IT assets and dispose of nonmarketable assets in a way that complies with environmental laws and regulations.

In addition for certain mid-range and high-end systems, customers leasing their Power Systems can upgrade to new technology at mid-lease for little or no change in their existing monthly payment. IBM offers options for clients to perform either in-place upgrades or side-by-side, nondisruptive migrations (IBM Power Exchange) to the latest POWER technology.
