Abstract

IBM UNIX systems consist of the IBM eServer pSeries and IBM RS/6000 product lines. Providing unprecedented value, these innovative systems feature IBM's leading-edge technology and run the top-rated UNIX operating system, AIX. This broad product line ranges from powerful workstations ideal for mechanical design; to mission-critical symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) servers for ERP, SCM, CRM, transaction processing, and Web serving; up to parallel RS/6000 SP systems that can handle demanding scientific and technical computing and business intelligence tasks. These platforms provide the power to create change and the flexibility to manage it, with thousands of applications that provide real value. More than 1,000,000 systems have shipped to over 135,000 businesses worldwide.

The 43P Series leverages the personal computer bus technology from such common industry technologies as PCI, ISA and SCSI-2. This enables you to use many of the high-performance PCI adapters, low-priced ISA adapters, and readily available SCSI-2 devices.

Model Abstract 7043-240

The RS/6000 43P Model 240 is the first RS/6000 workstation/workgroup server to offer expandability to symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) in a desktop package at an affordable price. Symmetric multiprocessing provides the scalability that helps you execute your applications with better response times in order to solve complex problems much faster. It is designed to support microprocessor card upgradability through replacing the base PowerPC* 604e microprocessor with a 233MHz one or through expansion to a second 166MHz or 233MHz processor. The Model 240 offers advanced 3D graphics adapters, up to 1GB Error Checking and Correcting (ECC) memory, 64-bit and 32-bit PCI slots, choice of high performance disk drives, an 8X CD-ROM drive, and tape drives.

Model Highlights 7043-240

  • Powerful graphics capabilities - With comprehensive graphics support from entry 8-bit 2D to 24-bit true-color 2D, and up through high-performance 3D, the Model 240 is ready to tackle everything from business graphics to demanding mechanical design applications. In addition, IBM*'s multithreaded PHIGS library exploits the SMP architecture to provide excellent performance for PHIGS-based applications, such as MCAD.

  • Flexible and expandable - The standard configuration can expand to 1GB of ECC memory, 22.7GB of SCSI-2 Fast/Wide internal disk capacity, and up to 1.08TB (terabytes) of SCSI-2 or 873GB of Serial Storage Architecture (SSA) external disk storage. The two available disk/media bays plus the three PCI and two ISA expansion slots provide extra room for adding communications and graphics adapters.

  • Easy "plug-in" processor - Upgrading from a 166MHz system is as simple as plugging in a 233MHz Processor. Or you may convert from a one-way to a two-way SMP system by simply plugging in a second processor card of the same MHz.

  • Enhanced network connectivity - Use the built-in 10BaseT Ethernet** port to connect to your Ethernet network (no card or slot required). For increased performance, install the optional 10/100Mbps Ethernet adapter.

Description

The RS/6000 43P Model 240 delivers SMP capability at an exciting price point. The wide range of packaging options enables you to build a system that best suits your application environment.

The SMP scalability, extensive set of connectivity options, and expansion capabilities of the Model 240 make it well suited as both a workstation and entry workgroup server. As an SMP server, the Model 240 allows the seamless scaling of transaction processing power by adding a second processor. As a result, your workload will automatically be balanced between the two processors with no change to the operating environment.

The Model 240 comes standard with a 166MHz PowerPC 604e microprocessor. The PowerPC 604e processor has 32KB of instructional and data cache plus an additional 512KB of Level 2 (L2) cache to provide even greater power. A 233MHz process card with 1MB of L2 cache is optionally available. A second processor can be added for 2-way SMP configurations.

The base Model 240 has outstanding expansion capabilities such as 64MB ECC memory that can be expanded to 1GB to address a wide range of transaction processing and database needs. A broad selection of SCSI-2 Fast/Wide, UltraSCSI and SSA disk drives are available to store your vital information for rapid retrieval. It includes a 1-2 user, full function AIX* Version 4.1.5 or Version 4.2.1 package at no additional charge.

The entry system comes with 2.1GB of internal disk storage that can be expanded to 22.7GB. If your needs continue to grow, you can add external disk storage for up to 1.08TB of SCSI-2 or 873GB (SSA) disk storage.

The system features five expansion slots to support your choice of affordable, fast communications, graphics and storage controllers. There are two 32-bit PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) slots, one 64-bit PCI slot, and two ISA (Industry Standard Architecture) slots.

In addition to the popular and widely used SCSI-2 interface, the Model 240 supports the SSA storage interface. SSA disks deliver outstanding performance for transaction-intensive applications (up to four times data transfer rates of SCSI-2) and offer redundancy features to keep your data safe.

Rounding out the Model 240 are standard 8X CD-ROM and 3.5-inch diskette drives, and integrated SCSI-2 Fast/Wide and Ethernet controllers. An integrated stereo audio capability supports many business multimedia and sophisticated network applications. Ports for line-in/line-out, headphone, and microphone are provided.

RAS:

Expansion is important, but a system must provide the reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) to run your most demanding tasks. Mainframe characteristics such as error detection, reliable hardware components, optional high availability clusters, fault management and concurrent diagnostics are part of every system. Each component was selected based on its reliability. Extensive integration testing has been conducted to ensure the highest possible quality. For example, the system and PCI busses have standard parity checking. The main memory is all ECC which helps improve availability by automatically correcting single bit errors.

An easy-to-read LED operator status panel on the front of the system helps improve troubleshooting capability. The three-digit display shows the system status at all times. The Model 240 also features concurrent diagnostics to help provide more complete diagnostics without requiring system shutdown.

AIX Version 4 can help protect your data by choosing disk mirroring or meta data consistency in the Journal File System. Should a disk need to be replaced, you can swap it in while the system is running helping you avoid costly down time. You also can use internal or external RAID subsystems.

For maximum high availability and horizontal growth you can cluster the Model 240 with other RS/6000 models. The RS/6000 HACMP (High Availability Clustered MultiProcessing) software has been recognized by D.H. Brown as the leading UNIX** cluster solution.

Graphics Support:

For 2D graphics applications, the Model 240 offers a number of graphics accelerators. The POWER GXT110P 2D accelerator meets the graphics needs of many commercial applications and provides an entry point for workstation users. It is also a cost-effective choice for server environments that require a graphical user console.

For high-levels of 2D graphics function and performance, you can choose either the 8-bit POWER GXT250P or the 24-bit true-color GXT255P graphics accelerator. In fact, the combination of these graphics accelerators and AIX 's Softgraphics 3D support for the OpenGL and PHIGS 3D APIs enables you to run 24-bit entry-level 3D applications, such as production CAD, at the price of a 2D system.

For more advanced 3D graphics capability, the Model 240 offers several options that differ in their cost and processing speeds. The POWER GXT500P and GXT550P graphics accelerators provide outstanding 3D accelerated functionality at an affordable price and are well suited for wireframe and entry solid modeling applications. The higher performing POWER GXT800P graphics accelerator has optional hardware texture mapping, which is ideal for performing solid modeling and visualization. Externally attaching a POWER GXT1000* graphics accelerator delivers IBM's highest function 3D graphics.

Year 2000 Readiness:

The Model 240 and its supported AIX operating system are Year 2000 ready. When used with their associated documentation, they are capable of correctly processing, providing, and/r receiving date data within and between the 20th and 21st centuries, provided all other products (for example software, hardware and firmware) used with them properly exchange date data.

Product Positioning

The Model 240 is positioned as the SMP technical workstation and workgroup server for the RS/6000. It introduces the new PCI and SMP architecture into this product space. It is the logical replacement product for the early mid-range workstation products such as the 3XX line except for the highest member of that family (3BT and 3CT), which offer POWER2 for superior floating-point performance. The Model 240 is also an alternative to the 42T which has Micro Channel* architecture.

The Model 240 is also positioned as IBM's first technical workstation specifically designed to exploit SMP in the workstation marketplace. As this architecture will gradually develop in the workstation arena, the Model 240's SMP nature will not be emphasized at the total exclusion of the other architectures. It will coexist with POWER2-and Micro Channel-based PowerPC products.

POWER GXT800P

As the POWER GXT800P Graphics Adapter (#2853) or (#2859) is a multislot solution when it is installed in a Model 240, only an ISA card less than 217 mm or a short PCI card will be supported. This means the 128-Port Asynchronous Controller (#2933) or the 4-Port Multiprotocol Communications Controller (#2701) on the ISA side will not be supported.

Supported Graphics Adapters

AIX systems can be ordered with or without keyboard, mouse, or graphics adapter.

Hardware Requirements

These are the requirements for operating the Model 240:

  • Either an ASCII terminal with attachment cable or a graphics display with attachment cable and graphics adapter is required for initial set up and must be available locally for service. If an ASCII terminal is used, it must be attached through serial port S1.

  • If a graphics adapter is installed, console messages (IPL progress/error information/systems management information) will be directed to the graphics adapter. The system does not detect if a display is attached to the adapter. The user may attach any supported device to the adapter.

  • If a graphics adapter is not installed, console messages (IPL progress/error information/systems management information) will be directed to serial port S1. The system does not detect if an ASCII display is attached to serial port S1. The use of any device other than an ASCII display on serial port S1 will result in lost messages and unpredictable results on that device.

Boot Devices

The system may be booted from CD-ROM, internal or external hard disk, or network booted using Ethernet (via integrated or #2985, #2968, or #2987) or Token-Ring (#2979) adapters. FDDI adapters (#2741, #2742, or #2743) will support Remote IPL and NIM with the appropriate system firmware. See #2741, #2742, or #2743 description and limitation sections for details.

When a new system is ordered, the boot hardfile and all non-Ultra SCSI devices will always be connected to the integrated SCSI. If a PCI Single-Ended Ultra SCSI Adapter (#6206), an Internal Ultra SCSI Cable Assembly (#2445) and more than one hardfile are ordered, then all secondary (non-boot) hardfiles will be connected to the PCI Single-Ended Ultra SCSI Adapter (#6206).

Cables Required for Use with Displays

Refer to the following table to determine the appropriate IBM cable feature number to order for the Model 240. Note that in some cases, the appropriate cable is either included with the monitor or is ordered with the Graphics Subsystem.

Cable Requirements

The following chart shows the cable feature to graphics adapter reference. Check your specific system model to determine which graphics adapters are supported on the model.

Software Requirements

The Model 240 requires AIX Version 4.1.5 or 4.2.1. It can be configured without a keyboard, mouse, or graphics adapter.

AIX applications written for POWER-based RS/6000 workstations will run on the Model 240 without recompilation. The only exception to this statement would be applications written using kernel extensions, which use certain privileged Assembler instructions. IBM is not aware of any applications using these instructions. Additional performance can be achieved by recompiling with the latest versions of the IBM XL compilers to further exploit the PowerPC technology.

AIX applications compiled using compiler options to exploit either the PowerPC technology or POWER2 technology may not function properly on systems that do not employ these technologies. Customers with any combination of POWER*-, POWER2-and PowerPC 601*-based or 604-based systems may continue to run their applications unmodified. New applications and recompilation of existing applications for use in a mixed processor environment should be compiled using the common mode options available in the new XL compilers or any other compilers that support those options.

Note: When ordering feature #2968 (IBM 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PCI Adapter) as part of a factory system order and software has been preloaded, the appropriate device driver for the feature will be shipped. New AIX customers who choose not to have the system order preloaded with software need to select backup media. This insures that the appropriate feature device driver will be included. Existing customers with AIX software who do not have an AIX Update CD should place an MES software order to obtain the appropriate refresh of AIX Update CD.

Feature Descriptions

The following is a description of all specify feature codes in numeric order.

Attributes, as defined in the following feature descriptions, state the interaction of requirements among features.

Minimums and maximums are the absolute limits for a single feature without regard to interaction with other features. The maximum valid quantity for MES orders may be different than for initial orders. The maximums listed below refer to the largest quantity of these two possibilities.

The order type defines if a feature is orderable only on initial orders, only on MES orders, on both initial and MES orders, or if a feature is supported on a model due to a model conversion. Supported features cannot be ordered on the converted model, only left on or removed from the converted model.

Feature Descriptions

The following is a description of all special feature codes in numeric order.

Attributes, as defined in the following feature descriptions, state the interaction of requirements among features.

Minimums and maximums are the absolute limits for a single feature without regard to interaction with other features. The maximum valid quantity for MES orders may be different than for initial orders. The maximums listed below refer to the largest quantity of these two possibilities.

The order type defines if a feature is orderable only on initial orders, only on MES orders, on both initial and MES orders, or if a feature is supported on a model due to a model conversion. Supported features cannot be ordered on the converted model, only left on or removed from the converted model.

(#2944) 128-Port Asynchronous Controller, PCI bus

(No Longer Available as of March 31, 2006)

The 128-Port Async Adapter subsystem provides attachment for a high concentration of asynchronous lines (up to 128) from a single PCI bus slot. This gives the system the ability to serve a large number of user of EIA-232 or RS-422 devices such as terminals, printers, and modems.

Two 2.4 Mbps synchronous channels link the adapter to a maximum of eight 16-Port Remote Async Nodes (RANs), up to four RANs can be linked to each synchronous channel.

These RANs provide 16 EIA-232 (#8137) or 16 RS-422 (#8138) ports yielding a total of 128-ports in a maximum configuration.

Existing RANs feature numbers 8130, 8134, or 8136 can also be used with this adapter. If these RANs are connected the synchronous channel the data rate drops down to 1.2 Mbps. For the best results keep the previous and new RAN's on separate synchronous channels.

(#8136) Rack Mountable Remote Asynchronous Node 16-Port EIA-232

(No Longer Available as of March 31, 2006)

The Rack Mountable Remote Asynchronous Node 16-Port EIA-232 (RAN) is a modified version of the existing 16-port Remote Async Node (feature #8130 or #8134) in an industry-standard 19-inch rack mount chassis to allow simpler installation and ease-of-use. Like the existing RAN, it can also be configured as a desktop device.

As an additional benefit, the new metal chassis meets FCC Class B/CISPR B when used with similarly rated RS/6000 host to meet the needs of customers with these requirements.

The RANs provide 16 ports of EIA-232 capability with full modem controls on each port and are connected to the 128-port Async Controller (Micro Channel or ISA versions) residing in the host. RANs are connected in daisy-chain fashion up to 8 RANs per 128-port Async Controller (either version).

The new rack-mountable RAN offers these enhanced features:

  • Industry-standard 19-inch rack mountable chassis (can be configured for stacking on a desktop or mounted in a 19-inch rack).
  • Meets FCC Class B/CISPR B when used with similarly rated RS/6000 host.
  • All RJ-45 connectors are now on the front panel, greatly enhancing cable management.
  • The DB-15 synchronous connectors (cabling from host to RAN and between RANs) and the power cord and switch are located on the rear panel.
  • Power supply is self contained within the unit.

The new rack-mountable RAN offers these same features as the existing RAN product:

  • Identical function and support as existing 16-port Remote Async Node (RAN), feature #8130 or #8134.
  • Operation of 16 to 128 ports by supporting up to 8 RANs (4 per synchronous line) with either a Micro Channel or ISA host adapter.
  • Ability to monitor individual port operation, synchronous line station, and other diagnostics from front panel.
  • Built-in diagnostics can test ports independent of RS/6000 host.
  • Full modem control supports the following interface signals: TxD, RxD, RTS, CTS, DSR, DCD, DTR, RI.
  • The same RJ-45 to DB-25 Converter Cable (feature #8133 -- quantity four per order) currently used on the existing RANs can be used to attach devices having a DB-25 connector to the Remote Async Nodes.
  • Individual ports support a maximum EIA-232 distance of 62 meters (200 feet).
  • Use of the same cabling from host to RAN and RAN to RAN: feature #8131 (4.5 meter), feature #8132 (23 cm) or customer supplied cables.
  • Location of RAN up to 330 meters from the host using standard shielded 8-wire twisted pair cabling.
  • Remote operation via synchronous modems or CSU/DSU extends the distance and allows location of RANs at geographically distant location from the host.
  • Attributes provided: 16 RJ-45 EIA-232 ports AND 1 RAN-to-RAN connection
  • Attributes required: 1 RAN-to-128-port Controller connection OR 1 RAN-to-RAN connection
