Abstract

The IBM 8408 is a Power System E850 server that offers new levels of performance, price/ performance, and function with POWER8 technology for clients using a 4-socket server. The Power E850 server impressively provides up to 48 POWER8 cores, up to 4 TB of memory, up to 51 Gen3 PCIe slots, integrated SAS controllers for integrated disk/SSD/ DVD bays, and up to over 1,500 SAS bays for disk/SSD with EXP24S I/O drawers.

In addition to extensive hardware configuration flexibility, the Power E850 server offers elastic capacity on demand for both cores and memory, Active Memory Expansion, and Active Memory Mirroring for Hypervisor. The E850 supports AIX and Linux operating systems and PowerVM Standard and Enterprise. The Power System E850is a logical follow on to the Power System 750 and 760.

The Power E850 server uses high-performance, enterprise-class 1600 MHz DDR3 memory packaged as CDIMMs with L4 cache. CDIMM features are 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB, or 128 GB. A two-processor module configuration provides 16 CDIMM slots. A three-processor module configuration provides 24 CDIMM slots. A four-processor module configuration provides 32 CDIMM slots and a maximum of 4 terabytes.

Capacity on demand (CoD) processor and memory allows additional resource to be physically installed at low cost. The additional resource can be very quickly activated, either temporarily or permanently, to meet changing business needs while avoiding downtime. Any temporary activations are paid for after it is used. A minimum of two processor modules of processor cores must be permanently activated, and a minimum of 50% of the physical memory must be permanently activated.

Up to 11 PCIe Gen3 slots are provided in the system unit. The number of PCIe slots depends on the number of processor modules. Two processor modules provide seven PCIe slots. Three processor modules provide nine PCIe slots. Four processor modules provide 11 PCIe slots. One of the slots contains an Ethernet LAN adapter. Up to 40 additional PCIe Gen3 slots can be added using PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawers. A two-processor module system can attach up to two PCIe Gen3 I/O drawers and provide up to 27 PCIe slots. A three-processor module system can attach up to three PCIe Gen3 I/O drawers and provide up to 39 PCIe slots. A four-processor module system can attach up to four PCIe Gen3 I/O drawers and provide up to 51 PCIe slots.

The E850 has been designed and built to provide strong reliability, availability, and serviceability characteristics. These include POWER8 chip capabilities, memory protection, multiple SAS storage protection options, hot plug SAS bays, hot plug PCIe slots, redundant and hot plug power supplies and cooling fans, redundant and spare internal cooling fans, hotplug Time of Day battery and even highly resilient architecture for power regulators.

The Power E850 server supports the IBM Solution Editions for SAP HANA offering.

All processor modules in one server must be the same gigahertz (same processor module feature number). They cannot be mixed.
  • Permanent CoD processor core activations are required for the first two processor modules in the configuration and are optional for the third and fourth modules. Specifically:
    • Two, three, or four 8-core, 3.72 GHz processor modules (#EPV2) require 16 processor core activations (#EPV9) at a minimum.
    • Two, three, or four 10-core, 3.35 GHz processor modules (#EPV6) require 20 processor core activations (#EPVH) at a minimum.
    • Two, three, or four 12-core, 3.02 GHz processor modules (#EPV4) require 24 processor core activations (#EPVD) at a minimum.
  • Temporary CoD capabilities are optionally used for processor cores that are not permanently activated:
    • 90 Days Elastic CoD Processor Core Enablement (#EP9T).
    • 1 and 100 Processor Day Elastic CoD billing for #EPV2 (#EPJW, #EPJX).
    • 1 and 100 Processor Day Elastic CoD billing for #EPV4 (#EPK0, #EPK1).
    • 1 and 100 Processor Day Elastic CoD billing for #EPV6 (#EPK3, #EPK4).
    • 100 Processor-minutes Utility CoD billing: for #EPV2 (#EPJY), for #EPV4 (#EPK2), or for #EPV4 (#EPK5).
    • An HMC is required for temporary CoD.

System memory

  • 128 GB to 4 TB high-performance 1600 MHz DDR3 or DDR4 ECC memory with L4 cache:
    • 16 GB CDIMM DDR3 Memory (#EM86)
    • 32 GB CDIMM DDR3 Memory (#EM87)
    • 64 GB CDIMM DDR3 Memory (#EM88)
    • 128GB CDIMM DDR4 Memory (#EM8S)
  • As the customer memory requirements increase, the system capabilities are increased as follows:
    • With two processor modules installed, 16 CDIMM slots are available, minimum memory is 128 GB.
    • With three modules, 24 CDIMM slots are available, minimum memory is 192 GB.
    • With four modules 32 CDIMM slots are available, minimum memory is 256 GB. Four CDIMMs are available per socket. The more CDIMM slots that are filled, the larger the available bandwidth available to the server.
    • Permanent CoD memory activations are required for at least 50% of the physically installed memory and not less than 128 GB activated. For example, for a system with two processor modules installed, no less than 128 GB must be activated. For a system with three processor modules installed, 50% of physically installed memory, but not less than 128 GB must be activated, which ever is larger. Use 1 GB activation (#EMAA) and 100 GB activation (#EMAB) features to order permanent memory activations.
    • Memory is ordered in pairs of the same memory feature. Both CDIMMs of a CDIMM pair must be installed in the slots supporting one processor. Different size pairs can be mixed on the same processor module's slots. For optimal performance, all pairs would be the same size. Also for optimal performance, generally the amount of memory per processor module would be the same or about the same.
    • Temporary CoD for memory is available for memory capacity that is not permanently activated:
    • 90 Days Elastic CoD Memory Enablement (#EM9T).
    • 8, 800, and 999 GB-Day billing for Elastic CoD memory (#EMJA, #EMJB, #EMJC).
    • Feature DDR4 Memory Enablement (plant) (#EMEE ) can not be ordered as MES or Bulk MES, use feature DDR4 Memory Enablement (field) (## EMED ) instead

I/O support

PCIe slots

The Power E850 server has up to 11 PCIe hot-plug Gen3 slots, providing excellent configuration flexibility and expandability. Eight adapter slots are x16 Gen3, and three adapter slots are x8 Gen3. All adapter slots are full height, half length.

The number of slots supported vary by the number of processor modules.

Processor processor modules   2      3      4
                              socket socket socket
----------------------------- ------ ------ ------
x16 Gen3 slots (CAPI capable) 4      6      8
x8 Gen3 slots                 3      3      3

Notes:

  • At least one PCIe Ethernet adapter is required on the server by IBM to ensure proper manufacture and test of the server. One of the x8 PCIe slots is used for this required adapter, identified as the C11 slot.
  • Blind swap cassettes (BSC) are not used for adapters in the system unit.
  • All PCIe slots in the system unit are SR-IOV capable.

The x16 slots can provide up to twice the bandwidth of x8 slots because they offer twice as many PCIe lanes. PCIe Gen3 slots can support up to twice the bandwidth of a PCIe Gen2 slot and up to four times the bandwidth of a PCIe Gen1 slot, assuming an equivalent number of PCIe lanes. PCIe Gen1 and PCIe Gen2 adapters can be plugged into a PCIe Gen3 slot, if that adapter is supported. x16 slots can be used to attach PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion drawers.

These servers are smarter than earlier servers about energy efficiency for cooling the PCIe adapter environment. They can sense which IBM PCIe adapters are installed in their PCIe slots. If an adapter is known to require higher levels of cooling, they automatically speed up fans to increase airflow across the PCIe adapters. In contrast, POWER7 servers required the user to enter a "nonacoustic mode" command to speed up the fans. Note that faster fans increase the sound level of the server.

SAS bays and storage backplane options

Clients have a choice of three storage features with eight SFF disk bays, four x 1.8-inch disk bays and one DVD bay:

  • Dual Controller Disk Backplane, RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 5T2, 6T2, and 10T2 with write cache (#EPVN) . The pair of controllers handle all twelve integrated SAS bays and DVD bay.
  • Dual Controller Disk Backplane, RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 5T2, 6T2, and 10T2 without write cache (#EPVP) . The pair of controllers handle all twelve integrated SAS bays and DVD bay.
  • Split Disk Backplane (two single controllers), RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and 10T2 without write cache (#EPVQ) (This is the eConfig default.) Each one of the two controllers handles four SFF-3 and two 1.8-inch SAS bays. One of the controllers handles the DVD bay.

Each of the three backplane options provides SFF-3 SAS bays in the system unit. These 2.5-inch or small form factor (SFF) SAS bays can contain SAS drives (HDD or SSD) mounted on a Gen3 tray or carrier. Thus the drives are designated for SFF-1, or SFF-2 bays do not fit in an SFF-3 bay. All SFF-3 bays support concurrent maintenance or hot-plug capability. All three of these backplane options support HDDs or SSDs or a mixture of HDDs and SSDs in the SFF-3 bays. If mixing HDDs and SSDs, they must be in separate arrays (unless using the Easy Tier function).

The dual SAS controllers provide both performance and protection advantages. Patented Active-Active capabilities enhance performance when there is more than one array configured. Each of the dual controllers has access to all the backplane SAS bays and can back up the other controller if there were to be a problem with the other controller. For the other controller pair with cache, each controller mirrors the other's write cache, providing redundancy protection. Integrated flash memory for the write cache content provides protection against electrical power loss to the server and avoids the need for write cache battery protection and battery maintenance.

All three of these backplane options can offer different drive protection options: RAID 0, RAID 5, RAID 6, or RAID 10. RAID 5 requires a minimum of three drives of the same capacity. RAID 6 requires a minimum of four drives of the same capacity. RAID 10 requires a minimum of two drives. Hot spare capability is supported with RAID 5 or RAID 6.

All three backplanes offer Easy Tier functionality, which is also called RAID 5T2 (2-tiered RAID 5), RAID 6T2 (2-tiered RAID 6), and RAID 10T2 (2-tiered RAID 10). The split backplane option supports RAID 10T2 but does not support RAID 5T2 or 6T2.

Notes:

  • Clients with I/O performance-sensitive workloads with an appreciable percentage of writes should strongly consider using the feature EPVN backplane with SAS controllers with write cache or use PCIe SAS controllers with write cache, especially for HDDs. Note also that RAID 5 and RAID 6 result in more drive write activity than mirroring or than unprotected drives.
  • All three of these backplane options are supported by AIX, Linux, and VIOS. It is highly recommended that the drives be protected, but not required. If the client needs a change after the server is already installed, the backplane option can be changed. Scheduled downtime is required to remove the existing storage backplane and install a different backplane.
  • Unlike the hot-plug PCIe slots and SAS bays, concurrent maintenance is not available for the integrated SAS controllers or storage backplane. Scheduled downtime is required if a service action is required for these integrated resources.

Storage Backplane Integrated Easy Tier function

The Easy Tier function is provided with all three storage backplanes (#EPVN, #EPVP, #EPVQ). Conceptually, this function is like the Easy Tier function found in the IBM Storage products such as the DS8000, Storwize V7000, or SVC, but implemented just within the integrated Power Systems SAS controllers and the integrated SAS bays. Hot data is automatically moved to SSDs, and cold data is automatically moved to disk (HDD) in an AIX, Linux, or VIOS environment. No user application coding is required.

Clients commonly have this hot/cold characteristic for their data. It is typical for 10% - 20% of the data to be accessed 80% - 90% of the time. This is called the hot data. If you can get the hot data onto SSDs, it can dramatically improve the performance of I/O-bound applications. And by keeping the cold data on HDDs, the total cost per gigabyte of the solution can be minimized. You can end up with high I/O performance at a very reasonable price. By avoiding the need for lots of HDD arms for performance, you can reduce the number of I/O drawers, maintenance, rack/ floor space, and energy.

On the Power E850 server , the integrated SAS RAID controllers handle eight SFF-3 bays (either HDD or SDD), and four 1.8-inch SSD bays can leverage Easy Tier functionality. In addition, or alternatively, the previously announced PCIe Gen3 large cache SAS adapter (#EJOL) can provide additional capacity or configuration options for the Easy Tier function, with HDDs and SSDs located in EXP24s drawers.

Easy Tier function is configured using RAID 5T2 (2-tiered RAID 5), RAID 6T2 (2-tiered RAID 6), or RAID 10T2 (2-tiered RAID 10). HDDs and SSDs are combined in the same array, and the controller or adapter swaps 1M or 2M bands of data between HDDs and SSDs, automatically moving the hot data to SSDs and the cold data to SSDs. The HDD and SSD can be different capacities in this array. If an array has multiple capacity points, for example, 300 GB HDD and 600 GB HDD, only 300 GB of the larger 600 GB HDD will be used. Similarly, if the array has both 387 GB SSD and 775 GB SSD, only 387 GB of the 775 GB SSD will be used. Note that the block size of the drives in the array must match, all 4k or all 5xx block drive.

DVD and boot devices

A slimline media bay that can hold a SATA DVD-RAM is included in the feature EPVN, EPVP, and EPVQ backplanes. The DVD drive is run by one of the integrated SAS controllers in the storage backplane, and a separate PCIe controller is not required.

A device capable of reading a DVD can be attached to the system and be 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 software such as AIX NIM server or Linux Install Manager configured to perform these functions.

System boot is supported through three options:

  1. Disk or SSD located in an EXP24S drawer attached to a PCIe adapter

  2. A network through LAN adapters

  3. A SAN attached to Fibre Channel or FCoE adapters and indicated to the server by the 0837 specify code

Assuming option 1 above, the minimum system configuration requires at least one SAS disk drive in the system for AIX and Linux. If you are using option 2 or 3 above, a disk or SSD drive is not required.

I/O drawer attachment

Clients migrating from earlier generation servers may have been using I/O drawers such as the GX++ attached feature 5802 or 5877 PCIe 12X I/O Drawers with PCIe Gen1 slots. Though most PCIe adapters in the feature 5802 or 5877 drawers can be moved to this server and its disk drives converted and moved to the feature 5887 EXP24S drawer, the feature 5802 and 5877 drawers are not supported on this newer Power Systems technology-based server. Similarly, the GX++ attached EXP30 Ultra SSD Drawer (#EDR1 or #5888) is not supported.

Up to 64 EXP24S storage drawers can be attached to a Power E850 server. With 24 drives per drawer, this means up to 1536 SFF-2 drives are supported. A maximum of 16 EXP24S per PCIe Gen3 I/O drawer is supported due to cable management considerations.

The older 3.5-inch-based EXP12S SAS Disk Drawer (#5886) and EXP24 SCSI Disk Drawer (#5786) are not supported.

IBM offers a 1U multimedia drawer that can hold one or more DVDs, tape drive, or RDX docking stations. The 7226-1U3 is the most current offering. The earlier 7216-1U2 and 7214-1U2 are also supported. Up to six of these multimedia drawers can be attached.

PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer

PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawers (#EMX0) can be attached to the system unit to expand the number of full-high, hot-swap Gen3 slots available to the server. The maximum number of PCIe Gen3 I/O drawers depends on the number of processor modules physically installed. The maximum is independent of the number of processor core activations.

  • Up to two PCIe3 drawers with two processor modules
  • Up to three PCIe3 drawers with three processor modules
  • Up to four PCIe3 drawers with four processor modules
  • The 19-inch 4 EIA (4U) PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer (#EMX0) and two PCIe FanOut Modules (#EMXF) provide 12 PCIe I/O full-length, full-height slots. One FanOut Module provides six PCIe slots labeled C1 through C6. C1 and C4 are x16 slots and C2, C3, C5, and C6 are x8 slots. Slots C1 and C4 of the 6-slot Fan-out Module in a PCIe Gen3 I/O drawer are SR-IOV enabled.
  • An EMX0 drawer can be configured with one or two EMXF FanOut Modules. Adding a second FanOut Module is not a hot-plug operation and requires scheduled downtime.
  • PCIe Gen1, Gen2, and Gen3 full-high adapter cards are supported. The set of full-high PCIe adapters that are supported is found in the Sales Manual, identified by feature number. See the PCI Adapter Placement manual for the 8408-E8E for details and rules associated with specific adapters supported and their supported placement in x8 or x16 slots.
  • Each FanOut Module requires one PCIe Optical Cable Adapter (#EJ08), which is placed in a x16 PCIe slot of the system unit.
  • An optical cable pair attaches the PCIe Optical Cable Adapter (#EJ08) to the FanOut Module. Feature ECC7 provides a pair of 3-meter cables with transceivers. Feature ECC8 provides a pair of 10-meter cables with transceivers. Two cables of identical length, or one feature, is required for each FanOut Module.
  • The Optical Cable Adapter (#EJ08) can be placed in any of the system units' available x16 slots and attached to any FanOut Module in any of the server's PCIe Gen3 I/O drawers (#EMX0). The PCIe I/O drawer cannot be shared by two different servers.
  • It is recommended that any attached PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer be located in the same rack as the POWER8 server for ease of service, but the drawers can be installed in separate racks if the application or other rack content requires it. It is recommended to use 3-meter cables for PCIe drawers in the same rack as the system unit and 10-meter cables for drawers located in a different rack.
  • Concurrent repair and add/removal of PCIe adapter cards is done by HMC-guided menus or by operating system support utilities.
  • A blind swap cassette (BSC) is used to house the full-high adapters that go into these slots. The BSC is the same BSC as used with the previous generation server's 12X attached I/O drawers (#5802, #5803, #5877, #5873). The drawer is shipped with a full set of BSCs, even if the BSCs are empty. A feature to order additional full-high BSCs is not required or announced.
  • When the operating system is Linux, PowerVM is required for support of the I/O Expansion Drawer.

Cable management arm (CMA)

A folding arm is attached to the server's rails at the rear of the server. The server's power cords and the cables from the PCIe adapters or integrated ports run through the arm and into the rack. The arm enables the server to be pulled forward on its rails for service access to PCIe slots, memory, processors, and so on without disconnecting the cables from the server. Approximately 1 meter of cord/cable length is needed for the arm. One CMA is included with the server. It does not have a separate ordering feature.

Integrated I/O ports

In addition to the integrated SAS controllers associated with the storage backplane, there are two HMC ports, one system port, and six USB ports (four general purpose and two limited use).

The two HMC ports are located on the service processor in the rear of the server and are RJ45. These ports support 1Gb Ethernet connections leveraging the second-generation service processor technology called an FSP2 in some IBM publications.

The one integrated system or serial port has an RJ45 style connector and is supported by AIX and Linux for attaching serial devices such as an asynchronous device like a console. If the device does not have a RJ45 connection, a converter cable such as feature 3930 can provide a 9-pin, D-shell connection. Note that serial devices can have very individual characteristics (different pin outs), and the feature 3930 may not be appropriate for all possible devices. In this case, the user should acquire an OEM converter cable appropriate for their device.

Integrated system port is not supported under AIX or Linux when the HMC ports are connected to an HMC. Either the HMC ports or the integrated system ports can be used, but not both. The integrated system port is supported for modem and TTY terminal connections by AIX or Linux. Any other application using serial ports requires a serial port adapter to be installed in a PCI slot. The integrated system port does not support HACMP configurations.

Four USB-3 ports are available for general client use, and two USB-2 ports are available for limited client use. Two USB-3 ports are located on the front of the server, and the other four USB ports (two USB-3 and two USB-2) are on the rear. The USB-2 ports are on the service processor card and can be used for communications to a UPS. A converter cable, feature ECCF, provides a USB-to-9 pin D-Shell connection to some UPS. The IBM 9910 Uninterruptible Power Systems, models E66 and E67, are supported as purchase options with the 8408-E8E.

Racks

The Power E850 server is designed to fit a standard 19-inch rack. IBM Development has tested and certified the system for the following rack support:

  • 7014-T00 (36U) (Manufacturing rack integration supported or #0551 MES support - defaulted on initial order)
  • 7014-T42 (42U) (Manufacturing rack integration supported or #0553 MES support)

The client can choose to place the server in other racks if they are confident those racks have the strength, rigidity, depth, and hole pattern characteristics that are needed. The client should work with IBM Service to determine other racks' appropriateness. The Power E850 rails can adjust their depth to fit a rack that is 22.75 inches - 30.5 inches in depth based on the adjustable outer brackets going from the front rail to the rear rail. Racks from IBM include:

  • 7014-B42 (42U) (Support only, cannot be ordered from IBM)
  • 7965-94Y (42U) (Field merge support only)

The Power E850 IBM manufacturing rack integration can be ordered with a 36U (7014-T00) or a 42U (7014-T42) rack. A same serial-number model upgrade MES is placed in either feature 0551 or 0553 rack. This is done to ease and speed client installation, provide a more complete and higher quality environment for IBM Manufacturing system assembly and testing, and provide a more complete shipping package. IBM Manufacturing does not support the use of other racks with the Power E850 initial system order or model upgrade. The 7014-T00 or feature 0550 is a 1.8-meter enterprise rack providing 36U or 36 EIA of space. The 7014-T42 or feature 0553 is a 2-meter enterprise rack providing 42U or 42 EIA of space.

Additional E850 PCIe Gen3 I/O drawers (#EMX0) for an already installed server can be MES ordered with or without a rack. When clients want IBM Manufacturing to place these MES I/O drawers into a rack and ship them together (factory integration), then the racks should be ordered as features on the same order as the I/O drawers.

Typical good cable management practices apply. For example, it is usually a good practice to leave 1U or 2U open at the top or bottom of the rack for cables exiting the rack or to hold extra cable lengths. Or if you have more than four PCIe Gen3 I/O drawers in the same rack, carefully consider how many 4-port PCIe adapters have cables attached to all their ports. If you are not using something like the 8-inch extension for a 7014-T42 rack for extra space to lay the cables, service access can be a challenge, especially with thicker I/O cables. Or another example, if there are a lot of I/O cables in the rack, horizontally mounting the PDUs versus mounting them vertically in the side pockets eases service access.

Rack front door options supported are the acoustic door (#6248 or #6249), the attractive geometrically accented door (#ERG7), and the cost-effective plain front door (#6068 or #6069). The front trim kit is also supported (#6263 or #6272).

Supported PDUs are either feature 7109 or 7188.

  • Feature 7109 -- Intelligent PDU with Universal UTG0247 Connector is for an intelligent ac power distribution unit (PDU+) that will allow the user to monitor the amount of power being used by the devices that are plugged in to this PDU+. This ac power distribution unit provides 12 C13 power outlets. It receives power through a UTG0247 connector. It can be used for many different countries and applications by varying the PDU to Wall Power Cord, which must be ordered separately. Each PDU requires one PDU to Wall Power Cord. Supported power cords include the following features: 6489, 6491, 6492, 6653, 6654, 6655, 6656, 6657, and 6658.
  • Feature 7188 -- Power Distribution Unit mounts in a 19-inch rack and provides 12 C13 power outlets. Feature 7188 has six 16A circuit breakers, with two power outlets per circuit breaker. System units and expansion units must use a power cord with a C14 plug to connect to the feature 7188. One of the following line cords must be used to distribute power from a wall outlet to the feature 7188: feature 6489, 6491, 6492, 6653, 6654, 6655, 6656, 6657, or 6658.

Three to four service personnel are required to manually remove or insert a system node drawer into a rack, given its dimensions and weight and content. To avoid the need for this many people to assemble at a client site for a service action a lift tool can be very useful. Similarly, if the client has chosen to install this CSU (Customer Set Up) system, similar lifting considerations apply. The Power E850 has a maximum weight of 69 kg (152 lbs). However, by temporarily removing the power supplies, fans and RAID assembly; the weight is easily reduced to a maximum of 55 kg (121 lbs).

When lowering the Power E850 onto its rails in the rack, the server must be tilted on one end about 15 degrees so that the pins on the server enclosure fit onto the rails. This equates to lifting one end of the server about 4 cm (1.6 in). This can be done using a tip plate on a lift tool or manually adjusting the load.on a lift tool or tilting during the manual lift.

PowerVM

PowerVM is available on the E850:

  • PowerVM Editions are available as a hardware feature (#EPVU for Standard Edition, #EPVV for Enterprise Edition). Select the edition that provides the level of virtualization appropriate for your workloads.
  • PowerVM Standard Edition (#EPVU) supports up to 20 partitions per core, VIOS, and multiple shared processor pools.
  • PowerVM Enterprise Edition (#EPVV) adds support for Live Partition Mobility, Active Memory Sharing, and PowerVP performance monitoring.

Other PowerVM technologies include:

  • System Planning Tool simplifies the process of planning and deploying Power Systems LPARs and virtual I/O.
  • Virtual I/O Server (VIOS) is a single-function appliance that resides in an IBM Power partition. It facilitates the sharing of physical I/O resources between AIX, Linux, and client partitions within the server. VIOS provides shared Ethernet adapter (SEA) virtual I/O to client LPARs.
  • Virtual SCSI (VSCSI) enables the sharing of physical storage adapters (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.
  • With Live Partition Mobility, available only with PowerVM Enterprise Edition, you can move a running AIX or Linux VMs from one physical server to another with no downtime. Use this capability to:
    • Evacuate workloads from a system before performing scheduled maintenance.
    • Move workloads across a pool of different physical resources as business needs shift.
    • Move workloads away from underutilized machines so that they can be powered off to save on energy and cooling costs.
    • Move your workloads to new POWER8 systems for upgrades without having to schedule an outage. With Active Memory Sharing, memory is dynamically moved between running partitions for optimal resource usage.

Active Memory Expansion

Active Memory Expansion is an innovative technology supporting the AIX operating system 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% or more. 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 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 on how compressible the memory content is. 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.

POWER7+ and POWER8 chips include a hardware accelerator designed to boost Active Memory Expansion efficiency and use less POWER core resource. The POWER8 accelerator includes some minor enhancements and also leverages POWER8 higher bandwidth and lower latency characteristics.

You 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 on memory expansion. Once turned on, monitoring capabilities are available in standard AIX performance tools such as lparstat, vmstat, topas, and svmon.

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

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

Active Memory Expansion is enabled by chargeable hardware feature 4798, which can be ordered with the initial order of the system node or as an MES order. A software key is provided when the enablement feature is ordered, which is applied to the system node. An IPL is not required to enable the system node. The key is specific to an individual system node 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.

Capacity on demand

Several types of capacity on demand (CoD) processors are optionally available for the Power E850 server . They help meet changing resource requirements in an on demand environment by using resources installed on the system but not activated.

Capacity upgrade on demand (CUOD) enables you to purchase additional permanent processor or memory capacity and dynamically activate it when needed.

Elastic capacity on demand (Elastic 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 can be activated and turned off an unlimited number of times, whenever you want additional processing resources.

With this offering, system administrators have 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.

Use the following features to order activation features and support billing charges on the Power E850(8408-E8E) server:

Note: After CoD contracts are in place, inactive processor cores and inactive memory can be enabled for Elastic CoD usage.

The Elastic CoD processor consists of three steps: enablement, activation, and billing

  • Elastic CoD enablement: Description

    Before requesting temporary capacity on a server, you must enable it for Elastic CoD. To do this, order a no-charge 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 90 processor days of temporary unused CoD processor capacity for all your processor cores that have not been permanently activated. For example, if you have 16 processor cores that are not permanently activated, the processor enablement code allows up to 1,440 processor days (16 x 90). If you have reached or are about to reach the limit of 90 processor days per nonactivated processor core, place an order for another processor enablement code to reset the number of days you can request. Similarly, a memory enablement code lets you request up to 90 days of temporary unused CoD memory capacity for all your gigabytes of memory that have not been permanently activated. For example, if you had 100 GB of memory that was not permanently activated, the memory enablement code allows up to 9000 GB memory days (100 x 90). If you have reached the limit of 90 memory days per nonactivated memory, place an order for another memory enablement code to reset the number of days you can request. Before ordering a new enablement code for either memory or processor temporary CoD, you must first process an MES delete order, deleting the current enablement code installed in the server configuration file.

Elastic 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 Elastic Capacity on Demand
  • IBM Business Partner Agreement for Solution Providers -- Attachment for Elastic Capacity on Demand
  • IBM Business Partner Agreement -- Attachment for Elastic Capacity on Demand

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

http://www.ibm.com/servers/servers/iseries/ondemand/cod

  • Step 1: The client initiates the request for Elastic 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 cod@us.ibm.com
    • Required: IBM Customer Agreement, Attachment for Elastic Capacity on Demand; IBM Supplement for On/Off Capacity on Demand
    • Optional: IBM Addendum for Elastic 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 system node.

Elastic activation requests: Description

When Elastic CoD temporary capacity is needed, simply use the HMC menu for Elastic 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 processor days not returned (per the contract you signed).

Elastic CoD activation requests: Step-by-step

When you need temporary capacity, use the Elastic 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.

Elastic CoD billing: Description

The contract, signed by the client before receiving the enablement feature, requires the Elastic 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 (using the appropriate billing features for each billable processor and memory day reported less any outstanding credit balance of processor and memory days).

Elastic 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 by 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.

Note: Prior to CoD enhancements made in 2013, Elastic CoD was called On/Off CoD. Some documentation still refers to this capability as "On/Off."

Utility CoD

Utility CoD 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 system node's shared processor pool, which then becomes available to the pool's resource manager. When the system node 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 enable the additional Utility CoD processors to be used. The system 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 Enterprise Edition to be active on the 8408-E8E.

Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability

Reliability, fault tolerance, and data correction

The reliability of systems starts with components, devices, and subsystems that are designed to be highly reliable. 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 the highest level of product quality.

Redundant infrastructure

Considerable redundancy in the infrastructure of these systems is included so as to avoid failing components such as power supplies, fans, processor and memory leading to system outages. The front fans are redundant and support concurrent maintenance. The internal fans are redundant and also contain multiple integrated spares. Also, supporting redundant infrastructure is monitoring of components such as processor and memory with voltage regulation outputs. An enhancement over the Power 750/760, is that the E850 has redundant or spare voltage converters for all critical voltages.

Processor and memory availability functions

The Power Systems family continues to offer and introduce significant enhancements designed to increase system availability.

POWER8 processor functions

As previously provided in POWER7 and POWER7+, the POWER8 processor has the ability to do processor instruction retry for some transient errors 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. When such an error is encountered in the core, the POWER8 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.

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. The POWER7/POWER7+ technology 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 in the PowerVM environment. These features are designed to avoid a full system outage.

As in POWER7/POWER7+, the POWER8 processor includes single processor check stopping 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.

Partition availability priority

Also available is the ability to assign availability priorities to partitions. In the PowerVM environment, if an alternate processor recovery event requires spare processor resources in order to protect a workload, when no other means of obtaining the spare resources is available, the system will determine which partition has the lowest priority and attempt to claim the needed resource. On a properly configured POWER8 processor-based server, this allows that capacity to be first obtained from, for example, a test partition instead of a financial accounting system.

Cache availability

The L2 and L3 caches in the POWER8 processor and L4 cache in the memory buffer chip are protected with double-bit detect, single-bit correct error detection code (ECC). In addition, a threshold of correctable errors detected on cache lines can result in the data in the cache lines being purged and the cache lines removed from further operation without requiring a reboot in the PowerVM environment. In addition, the L2 and L3 caches have the ability to dynamically substitute a spare bit-line for a faulty bit-lane, allowing an entire faulty "column" of cache, impacting multiple cache lines, to be repaired. An ECC uncorrectable error detected in these caches can also trigger a purge and delete of cache lines. This results in no loss of operation if the cache lines 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 errors and a cache set delete mechanism for handling solid failures.

Special uncorrectable error handling

Special uncorrectable error (SUE) handling is designed to prevent 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 check stop. If the data is used, termination may be limited to the program/ kernel or hypervisor owning the data; or the I/O adapters controlled by an I/O hub controller would freeze if data were transferred to an I/O device.

Memory error correction and recovery

The memory has error detection and correction circuitry designed such that the failure of any one specific memory module within an ECC word by itself can be corrected absent any other fault.

In addition, a spare DRAM per rank on each memory port provides for dynamic DRAM device replacement during runtime operation. Also, dynamic lane sparing on the DMI link allows for repair of a faulty data lane.

Other memory protection features include retry capabilities for certain faults detected at both the memory controller and the memory buffer. Memory is also periodically scrubbed to allow for soft errors correction and for solid single-cell errors to be reported to the hypervisor, which supports operating system deallocation of a page associated with a hard single-cell fault.

Active memory mirroring for the hypervisor

The POWER8 memory subsystem is capable of mirroring sections of memory by writing to two different memory locations, and when an error is detected when reading from one location, taking data from the alternate location. This is used by the POWER hypervisor in these systems to mirror critical memory within the hypervisor so that a fault, even a solid uncorrectable error in the data, can be tolerated using the mirrored memory.

Dynamic processor and memory deallocation

When correctable solid faults occur in components of the processor and memory subsystem, the system will attempt to correct the problem by using spare capacity in the failing component, using a spare column in an L2 or L3 cache, for example, a spare data line in a memory or processor bus, or a spare DRAM in memory. Use of such spare capacity restores the system to full functionality without the need to take a repair action.

When such spare capacity is not available, the service processor and POWER hypervisor may request deallocation of the component experiencing the fault. When there are sufficient resources to continue running partitions at requested capacity, the system will continue to do so. This includes taking advantage of unlicensed capacity update on demand processor and memory resources as well as licensed but unallocated resources.

When such unlicensed or unused capacity is used in this manner, a request for service will be made.

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.

The service processor monitors the operation of the firmware during the boot process and also monitors the hypervisor for termination. The hypervisor monitors the service processor and reports the service reference code when it detects surveillance loss. In the PowerVM environment, it will perform a reset/reload if it detects the loss of the service processor.

Environmental monitoring functions

The Power Systems family does ambient and over temperature monitoring and reporting.

Uncorrectable error recovery

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

Serviceability

The purpose of serviceability is to efficiently repair the system while attempting to minimize or eliminate the impact to system operation. Serviceability includes system installation, MES (system upgrades/ downgrades), and system maintenance/repair. Depending upon the system and warranty contract, service may be performed by the customer, an IBM representative, or an authorized warranty service provider.

The serviceability features delivered in this system provide a highly efficient service environment by incorporating the following attributes:

  • Design for Customer Set Up (CSU), Customer Installed Features (CIF), and Customer Replaceable Units (CRU).
  • Detection and Fault Isolation (ED/FI).
  • First Failure Data Capture (FFDC).
  • Light path service indicators.
  • Service labels and service diagrams available on the system and delivered through IBM Knowledge Center.
  • Step-by-step service procedures documented in IBM Knowledge Center or available through the HMC.
  • CRU videos that are planned to be available on the web at general availability.
  • Mobile access to important customer service functions available by scanning a QR label.

Service environment

The HMC is a dedicated server that provides functions for configuring and managing servers for either partitioned or 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.

The POWER8 processor-based platforms support two main service environments:

  • Attachment to one or more HMCs is a supported option by the system with PowerVM. This is the default configuration for servers supporting logical partitions with dedicated or virtual I/O. In this case, all servers have at least one logical partition.
  • No HMC. There are two service strategies for non-HMC systems.
    • Full-system partition with PowerVM: A single partition owns all the server resources and only one operating system may be installed.
    • Partitioned system with PowerVM: In this configuration, the system can have more than one partition and can be running more than one operating system. In this environment, partitions are managed by the Integrated Virtualization Manager (IVM), which provides some of the functions provided by the HMC.

The I/O device and adapter diagnostics consists 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.

Service interface

The service interface allows support personnel to communicate with the service support applications in a server using a console, an interface, or a 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 through 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, hypervisor, and operating environment. The primary service interfaces are:

  • Service Indicators
  • Operator Panel
  • Service Processor menu
  • Operating system service menu
  • Service Focal Point on the HMC with PowerVM
  • Service Focal Point Lite on IVM with PowerVM

In the light path LED implementation, the system can clearly identify components for replacement by using specific component-level LEDs, and can also guide the servicer directly to the component by signaling (turning on solid) the amber system fault LED, enclosure fault LED, and component FRU fault LED. The servicer can also use the identify function to blink the FRU-level LED. When this function is activated, a roll-up to the blue enclosure locate and system locate LEDs will occur. These LEDs will turn on solid and can be used to follow the light path from the system to the enclosure and down to the specific FRU in the PowerVM environment.

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 extending 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.

In the rare absence of FFDC and Error Data Analysis, diagnostics are required to re-create the failure and determine the failing items.

Diagnostics

General diagnostic objectives are to detect and identify problems so they can be resolved quickly. Elements of IBM's diagnostics strategy include:

  • Provide a common error code format equivalent to a system reference code with PowerVM, system reference number, checkpoint, or firmware error code.
  • Provide fault detection and problem isolation procedures. Support remote connection ability to be used by the IBM Remote Support Center or IBM Designated Service.
  • Provide interactive intelligence within the diagnostics with detailed online failure information while connected to IBM's back-end system.

Automatic diagnostics

Because of the FFDC technology designed into IBM servers, it is not necessary to perform re-create diagnostics for failures or require user intervention. Solid and intermittent errors are designed to be correctly detected and isolated at the time the failure occurs. Runtime and boot-time diagnostics fall into this category.

Stand-alone diagnostics with PowerVM

As the name implies, stand-alone or user-initiated diagnostics requires user intervention. The user must perform manual steps, including:

  • Booting from the diagnostics CD, DVD, USB, or network
  • Interactively selecting steps from a list of choices

Concurrent maintenance

Some hardware components that fail will be able to be replaced using concurrent maintenance. These include power supplies, power cable, 80 MM fans, op panel, real-time clock battery, and PCIe adapters.

The system also supports updating firmware with service packages, typically concurrently. The determination of whether a firmware release can be updated concurrently is identified in the readme information file that is released with the firmware.

Service labels

Service providers use these labels to assist them in performing maintenance actions. Service labels are found in various formats and positions and are intended to transmit readily available information to the servicer during the repair process. Following are some of these service labels and their purpose:

  • Location diagrams: Location diagrams are located on the system hardware, relating information regarding the placement of hardware components.

    Location diagrams may include location codes, drawings of physical locations, concurrent maintenance status, or other data pertinent to a repair. Location diagrams are especially useful when multiple components such as DIMMs, CPUs, processor books, fans, adapter cards, LEDs, and power supplies are installed.

  • Remove/replace procedures: Service labels that contain remove/replace procedures are often found on a cover of the system or in other spots accessible to the servicer. These labels provide systematic procedures, including diagrams, detailing how to remove or replace certain serviceable hardware components.
  • Arrows: Numbered arrows are used to indicate the order of operation and the serviceability direction of components. Some serviceable parts such as latches, levers, and touch points need to be pulled or pushed in a certain direction and in a certain order for the mechanical mechanisms to engage or disengage. Arrows generally improve the ease of serviceability.

Packing for service

The following service enhancements are included in the physical packaging of the systems to facilitate service:

  • Color coding (touch points): Terracotta-colored touch points indicate that the system may not be required to be powered off to perform service to the FRU. This is dependent on system configuration and preparatory steps may be required before the service action is taken. Blue-colored touch points indicate that the procedure may require that the unit or system be shut down before servicing. This is dependent on system configuration, and preparatory steps may be required before the service action is taken.
  • Tool-less design: Most FRUs support tool-less or simple tool designs. These designs require no tools or simple tools such as flathead screw drivers to service the hardware components.
  • Positive retention: Positive retention mechanisms help to assure proper connections between hardware components such as cables to connectors, and between two cards that attach to each other. Without positive retention, hardware components run the risk of becoming loose during shipping or installation, preventing a good electrical connection. Positive retention mechanisms like latches, levers, thumb-screws, pop Nylatches (U-clips), and cables are included to help prevent loose connections and aid in installing (seating) parts correctly. These positive retention items do not require tools.

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, or if the system continues to operate, the error will be reported to the operating system. Hardware and software failures are recorded in the system log. When an HMC is attached, 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.

The system has the ability to call home through the OS to report platform-recoverable errors and errors associated with PCI adapters/devices.

In the IVM environment, call home is supported through an IVM partition.

In the HMC managed environment, if the system is properly configured for call home, 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. Customer contact information and specific system-related data such as the machine type, model, and serial number, along with the error log data related to the failure, are sent to IBM Service.

Live Partition Mobility

With Live Partition Mobility, users can migrate an AIX or Linux partition running on one POWER partition system to another POWER 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.

When initially purchasing a system, the client needs to consider the effect on the workloads that servicing the system will make. Some system FRUs that fail will be replaced while the system is still powered on, using Concurrent Maintenance. For the remainder of the FRUs, the entire system must be powered off to service the FRU. For customers with critical workloads, which cannot afford to be stopped, the use of Live Partition Mobility needs to be planned for when the initial purchase of the system is made.

Serviceprocessor

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.

Under PowerVM, 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 processors menus (ASMI) can be accessed concurrently with system operation, allowing nondisruptive abilities to change system default parameters.

Call home

Call home refers to an automatic or manual call from a customer location to the IBM support structure with error log data, server status, or other service-related information. Call home invokes the service organization in order for the appropriate service action to begin. Call home can be done through the HMC or most non-HMC managed systems through Electronic Service Agent running on top of the operating system. While configuring call home is optional, clients are encouraged to implement this feature in order to obtain service enhancements such as reduced problem determination and faster and potentially more accurate transmittal of error information. In general, using the call home feature can result in increased system availability. The Electronic Service Agent application can be configured for automated call home. Refer to the next section for specific details on this application.

IBM Electronic Services

Electronic Service Agent and the IBM Electronic Services web portal comprise the IBM Electronic Services solution, which is dedicated to providing fast, exceptional support to IBM customers. IBM Electronic Service Agent is a no-charge tool that proactively monitors and reports hardware events such as system errors, performance issues, and inventory. Electronic Service Agent can help focus on the customer's company business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues.

System configuration and inventory information collected by Electronic Service Agent also can be viewed on the secure Electronic Services web portal and used to improve problem determination and resolution between the customer and the IBM support team. As part of an increased focus to provide even better service to IBM customers, Electronic Service Agent tool configuration and activation comes standard with the system. In support of this effort, a new HMC External Connectivity security whitepaper has been published, which describes data exchanges between the HMC and the IBM Service Delivery Center (SDC) and the methods and protocols for this exchange. To read the whitepaper and prepare for Electronic Service Agent installation, go to the "Security" section at

Benefits: increased uptime

Electronic Service Agent is designed to enhance the warranty and maintenance service by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can optimize the time monitoring the symptoms, diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. And 24x7 monitoring and reporting means no more dependency on human intervention or off-hours customer personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to be secure in monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM. The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to securely transmit either through the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem to provide customers a single point of exit from their site. Communication is one way. Activating Electronic Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a customer's system.

For additional information, refer to IBM Electronic Service Agent

More accurate reporting

Because system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support Center in conjunction with the service request, customers are not required to find and send system information, decreasing the risk of misreported or misdiagnosed errors. Once inside IBM, problem error data is run through a data knowledge management system and knowledge articles are appended to the problem record.

Customized support

Using the IBM ID entered during activation, customers can view system and support information in the My Systems and Premium Search sections of the Electronic Services website.

The Electronic Services web portal is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. This web portal enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems. The newly improved My Systems and Premium Search functions make it even easier for Electronic Service Agent-enabled customers to track system inventory and find pertinent fixes.

My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by IBM Electronic Service Agent. Reports are available for any system associated with the customer's IBM ID. Premium Search combines the function of search and the value of Electronic Service Agent information, providing advanced search of the technical support knowledgebase. Using Premium Search and the Service Agent information that has been collected from the system, customers are able to see search results that apply specifically to their systems.

Rack-integrated system with Expansion Drawer

Regardless the rack-integrated system to which the PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer is attached to, if the Expansion Drawer is ordered as factory integrated, the PDUs in the rack will be defaulted to be placed horizontally to enhance cable management.

Expansion Drawers complicate the access to vertical PDUs if located at the same height. IBM recommends accommodating PDUs horizontally on racks containing one or more PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawers.

Once the rack with Expansion Drawers is delivered to the customer, the customer is allowed to rearrange the PDUs from horizontal to vertical. However, the configurator will remain considering the PDUs are placed horizontally for the matter of calculating the free space still available in the rack.

Vertical PDUs can be used only if CSRP (#0469) is on the order. When specifying CSRP, the customer will provide the locations where the PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawers must be placed, avoiding locating those adjacent to Vertical PDU locations, EIA 6 through 16 and 21 through 31.

Note: Government regulations (such as those prescribed by OSHA or European Community Directives) may govern noise level exposure in the workplace and may apply to you and your server installation. This IBM system is available with an optional acoustical door feature that can help reduce the noise emitted from this system. The actual sound pressure levels in your installation depend upon a variety of factors, including the number of racks in the installation; the size, materials, and configuration of the room where you designate the racks to be installed; the noise levels from other equipment; the room ambient temperature, and employees' location in relation to the equipment. Further, compliance with such government regulations also depends upon a variety of additional factors, including the duration of employees' exposure and whether employees wear hearing protection. IBM recommends that you consult with qualified experts in this field to determine whether you are in compliance with the applicable regulations.

Minimum configuration

The minimum Power E850 initial order must include a processor module, 128 GB of memory, a storage backplane, one HDD or SSD DASD device, a PCIe2 4-port 1GbE controller, four power supplies and line cords, an operating system indicator, and a Language Group Specify.

The minimum defined initial order configuration, if no choice is made, is as follows:

Feature    Description
number
---------- -------------------------------------------------------------
#EPV2 x 2  8-core 3.72 GHz POWER8 Processor module
and
#EPV9      Processor core entitlement activations for #EPV2 to equal
           total processor cores ordered
#EM86 x 8  16 GB CDIMM, 1600 MHz DDR3 Memory and memory activation
           features. All memory ordered in pairs.
#EPVN x 1  Dual Controller Disk Backplane with write cache
#ESDB x 1  300 GB 15K RPM SAS SFF-3 Disk Drive
or
#0837 x 1  SAN Load Source Specify
#5899 x 1  PCIe2 4-port 1GbE Adapter
#EB2M x 4  AC Power Supply - 1400W for Server (200-240 V ac)
and
#6458 x 4  Power Cord 4.3 m (14 ft), Drawer to Wall/IBM PDU (250V/10A)
#9300/97xx Language Group Specify
#2146      Primary Operating System Indicator - AIX
or
#2147 x 1  Primary Operating System Indicator - Linux

Notes:

  • Feature-coded racks are allowed for I/O expansion only.
  • A machine type/model rack, if desired, should be ordered as the primary rack.
  • The 7014-T00 (36U) rack is defaulted for manufacturing rack integration.
  • A minimum number of 16 processor activations must be ordered per system.
  • A minimum of four memory features per system node is required.
  • At least 50% of available memory must be activated through a combination of features EMAA, EMAB, and EMAC.
  • If SAN Load Source Specify (#0837) is ordered, features 0040, 0041, 0043, 0047, and 0308 are not supported.
  • The language group is auto-selected based on geographic rules.
  • One HMC is required for every 8408-E8E ; however, a communal HMC is acceptable. HMCs supported on POWER8 hardware are 7042-CR5 through 7042-CR8.

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

http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/POWER8

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

Multiple POWER8 processor-based system nodes can be supported by a single HMC.

If an HMC is used to manage any POWER8 processor-based system node, the HMC must be 7042 -- CR5 through CR9 rack models -- or 7042-C08 deskside model, or later.

When PowerVC is enabled, 4 GB of RAM is recommended. To use the Enhanced login mode, 8 GB is recommended. The IBM 7042 Model CR9 has an Intel Xeon Processor E5-2620 v3, 2.4 GHz speed, 16 GB memory, 500 GB hard drive, and DVD-RAM optical device.

Software requirements

  • AIX Version 7.1 with the 7100-03 Technology Level Service Pack 5, and APAR IV68444, or later
  • AIX Version 7.1 with the 7100-02 Technology Level Service Pack 7, or later (planned availability September 30, 2015)
  • AIX Version 6.1 with the 6100-09 Technology Level Service Pack 5, and APAR IV68443, or later
  • AIX Version 6.1 with the 6100-08 Technology Level Service Pack 7, or later (planned availability September 30, 2015)

If installing the AIX operating system Virtual I/O only LPAR (one of these):

  • AIX Version 7.1 with the 7100-02 Technology Level Service Pack 1, or later
  • AIX Version 7.1 with the 7100-03 Technology Level Service Pack 1, or later
  • AIX Version 6.1 with the 6100-08 Technology Level Service Pack 1, or later
  • AIX Version 6.1 with the 6100-09 Technology Level Service Pack 1, or later

If installing VIOS:

  • VIOS 2.2.3.51, or later

If installing the Linux operating system (one of these):

  • Big endian
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1, or later
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6, or later
    • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 3 (IBM Power Systems Solution Editions for SAP HANA clients only)
  • Little endian
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1, or later
    • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 and later Service Packs
    • Ubuntu 14.0.3, or later

Java is supported on POWER8 servers. For best exploitation of the outstanding performance capabilities and most recent improvements of POWER8 technology, IBM recommends upgrading Java-based applications to Java 7 or Java 6, whenever possible. For those clients who want to run Java in AIX environments, refer to

http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/java/jdk/aix/service.html

For Linux (including POWER Linux), visit

http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/java/jdk/linux/down load.html

Feature availability matrix

The following feature availability matrix for MT 8408 uses the letter "A" to indicate features that are available and orderable on the specified models. "S" indicates a feature that is supported on the new model during a model conversion; these features will work on the new model, but additional quantities of these features cannot be ordered on the new model; they can only be removed. "N" indicates that the feature is not supported on the new model and must be removed during the model conversion. As additional features are announced, supported, or withdrawn, this list will be updated. Please check with your Marketing Representative for additional information.

         E  A = AVAILABLE  S = SUPPORTED
         8  N = NOT SUPPORTED, MUST BE REMOVED

Feature descriptions

The following is a list of all feature codes in numeric order for the IBM Power Systems 8408 machine type.

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.

PCIe Gen2 8 Gigabit quad port Fibre Channel Adapter is a high- performance 8x short form adapter based on the Emulex LPe12004 PCIe Host Bus Adapter (HBA). Each port provides single initiator capability over a fibre link or with NPIV, multiple initiator capability is provided. The ports have LC type connectors and utilize shortwave laser optics. The adapter operates at link speeds of 2, 4, and 8 Gbps and will automatically negotiate to the highest speed possible. LEDs on each port provide information on the status and link speed of the port.

The adapter connects to a Fibre Channel switch. Direct device attachment has not been tested and is not supported.

N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) capability is supported through VIOS.

Cables are the responsibility of the customer. Use multimode fibre optic cables with short-wave lasers that adhere to the following specifications:

     OM3 - multimode 50/125 micron fibre, 2000 MHz*km bandwidth
     OM2 - multimode 50/125 micron fibre, 500 MHz*km bandwidth
     OM1 - multimode 62.5/125 micron fibre, 200 MHz*km bandwidth

Because core sizes are different, OM1 cables can only be connected to other OM1 cables. For best results, OM2 cables should not be connected to OM3 cables. However, if an OM2 cable is connected to an OM3 cable, the characteristics of the OM2 cable apply to the entire length of the cables.

The following table shows the supported distances for the three different cable types at the three different link speeds.

(#EC3M) - PCIe3 2-port 100GbE (NIC&RoCE) QSFP28 Adapter x16

This PCIe Gen3 Ethernet x16 adapter provides two 100 Gb QSFP28 ports. The adapter supports both NIC and IBTA RoCE standards. RoCE is Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) over Converged Ethernet. Using RoCE, the adapter can support significantly greater bandwidth with low latency and minimize CPU overhead by more efficiently using memory access. This offloads the CPU from I/O networking tasks, improving performance and scalability.

IBM offers either passive copper twinax cables up to 2 meter in length or active optical cables up to 100 meters in length. See features #EB5J - #EB5M for a 0.5M, 1.0M, 1.5M and 2.0M copper cable. See features #EB5R - #EB5Y for a 3M, 5M, 10M, 15M, 20M, 30M, 50M or 100M active optical cable. Transceivers are included on each end of these QSFP28 cables. Alternatively to the above supported cables, you may chose to order an IBM qualified and supported QSFP28 optical transceiver (feature #EB59) to put into the adapter and provide your own 100GE optical cabling with your own QSP28 optical transceiver for the other end.

Either one or both of the adapter's two QSP28 ports can be populated. When two ports are filled, both can have copper cables, both can have optical cables, or one can be copper and one can be optical.

Feature code #EC3L and #EC3M have identical electronics and function and CCIN (2CEC), but have different tail stock brackets. #EC3L is low profile and #EC3M is full high. The adapter is based on a Mellanox ConnectX-4 adapter which uses a ConnectX-4 EN Network Controller. Attributes:

(#ECW0) - Optical Wrap Plug

A wrap plug is a small connector designed to perform a diagnostic test called a loopback test. This wrap plug is inserted into a SR optical port on a PCIe Fibre Channel adapter or a SR or LR optical port on a PCIe Ethernet adapter

This is a multi-mode LC fiber optic wrap plug with an inside/ outside optics diameter of 50/125. Its IBM part number as of early 2016 is 12R9314. An earlier equivalent function IBM part number which is no longer shipped is 11P3847.

It is strongly recommended that Fibre Channel adapters (HBAs) fill any empty adapter ports with a wrap plug. There is no technical issue leaving a port empty. However, filling all ports with a cable to a device/switch or with a wrap plug can speed the booting/IPLing of a partition and can avoid error messages uselessly pointing to a planned empty port.

There is no technical issue leaving an Ethernet port empty. Whether an Ethernet port is empty or contains a wrap plug should not impact boot/IPL time or impact empty-port messages.

Secure-key adapter provides both cryptographic coprocessor and cryptographic accelerator functions in a single PCIe card. The adapter is well suited to applications requiring high-speed, security- sensitive, RSA acceleration, cryptographic operations for data encryption and digital signing, secure management, and use of cryptographic keys, or custom cryptographic applications. It provides secure storage of cryptographic keys in a tamper-resistant hardware security module designed to meet FIPS 140-2 level 4 security requirements. The adapter is a PCIe Gen 1 x4 full height - short card. The adapter runs in dedicated mode only (no PowerVM virtualization).

#EJ32 and #EJ33 are both feature codes representing the same physical card with the same CCIN of 4767. Different feature codes are used to indicate if a blind swap cassette is used and its type. #EJ32 indicates no blind swap cassette. #EJ33 indicates a Gen 3 blind swap cassette.

IBM PCIe Cryptographic Coprocessor adapter highlights

(#EM9T) - 90 Days Elastic CoD Memory Enablement

The 90 Days Elastic CoD Memory Enablement (#EM9T) feature can be ordered to enable your server for Elastic Capacity on Demand. You must sign an Elastic Capacity on Demand contract and the Sales Channel has to register the server before an MES order can be fulfilled for #EM9T. Feature code #EM9T provides access to Elastic CoD memory resources for 90 days. Access to these resources is measured in GB-days. For example, if there are 100 GBs of inactive, CoD memory installed, this feature will enable usage of 9000 GB-days (9 TB-days) before disabling Elastic CoD access to the inactive memory.

After usage of this feature has been exhausted, additional temporary usage of Elastic CoD memory resources may be activated by ordering another Elastic CoD enablement code, #EM9T. Before ordering a fourth enablement code, after the system maximum of 3 has been reached, the current code must be RPO deleted from the configuration file with a MES delete order.

Usage of Elastic temporary CoD memory is billed by ordering #EMJ4 - 1GB-Day Memory Activation, #EMJ5 - Qualtity of 100 #EMJ4 Memory Activations, and #EMJ6 - Qualtity of 999 #EMJ4 Memory Activations. The 9119 - MHE maximum Elastic GB-days billable on any one order using #EMJ4, #EMJ5 and #EMJ6 is 6,144,000 GBs.

(#EMX0) - PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer

This 19-inch, 4U (4 EIA) enclosure provides PCIe Gen3 slots outside of the system unit. It has two module bays. One 6-Slot Fanout Module (#EMXF or EMXG) placed in each module bay. Two 6-slot modules provide a total of 12 PCIe Gen3 slots. Each fanout module is connected to a PCIe3 Optical Cable Adapter located in the system unit over an active optical cable (AOC) pair.

The PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer has two redundant, hotplug power supplies. Each power supply has its own separately ordered power cord. The two power cords plug into a Power supply conduit which connects to the power supply. The single-phase AC power supply is rated at 1030 Watt and can use 100-120V or 200-240V. If using 100- 120V, then the maximum is 950 Watt. It's recommended the power supply connect to a PDU in the rack. Power Systems PDUs are designed for 200-240V electrical source.

The drawer has fixed rails which can accommodate racks with depths from 27.5 inches to 30.5 inches.

Limitations:

  • #EMX0 has a cable management bracket located at the rear of the drawer which swings up to provide service access to the PCIe adapters. 2U (2 EIA) of space is required to swing up the bracket. Thus the drawer can not be placed in the very top 2U of a rack.
  • There is a power cord access consideration with vertically mounted PDUs on the right hand side of the rack when viewed from the rear of the rack. The #EMX0 cable management bracket makes accessing some of the PDU outlets located at the same rack height as the #EMX0 drawer more challenging. Using a horizontally mounted PDU or locating the PDU or #EMX0 at a different vertical location is recommended.
  • Attributes provided: 19-inch 4U (4 EIA) PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer

(#EN0A) - PCIe3 16Gb 2-port Fibre Channel Adapter

PCIe Gen3 16 Gigabit dual-port Fibre Channel (FC) Adapter is a high-performance 8x short form adapter based on the Emulex LPe16002B PCIe Host Bus Adapter (HBA). The adapter provides two ports of 16 Gb Fibre Channel capability using SR optics. Each port can provide up to 16 Gb Fibre Channel functions simultaneously. The adapter was initially announced as PCIe Gen2, but upgrades to the adapter firmware and introduction of POWER8 servers have enabled PCIe Gen3.

Each port provides single initiator capability over a fibre link or with NPIV, multiple initiator capability is provided. The ports are SFP+ and include an optical SR transceiver. The ports have LC type connectors and utilize shortwave laser optics. The adapter operates at link speeds of 4, 8 and 16 Gbps and will automatically negotiate to the highest speed possible. LEDs on each port provide information on the status and link speed of the port.

The adapter connects to a Fibre Channel switch at 4Gb, 8Gb or 16Gb. It can directly attach to a device without a switch at 16Gb. Attachment without a switch is not supported at 4Gb or 8Gb.

N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) capability is supported through VIOS.

Feature #EN0A and #EN0B are electronically identical. They differ physically only that EN0A has a tail stock for full high PCIe slots and #EN0B has a tail stock for low profile PCIe slots. CCIN is 577F for both features.

Cables are the responsibility of the customer. Use multimode fibre optic cables with short-wave lasers that adhere to the following specifications:

     OM4 - multimode 50/125 micron fibre, 4700 MHz*km bandwidth
     OM3 - multimode 50/125 micron fibre, 2000 MHz*km bandwidth
     OM2 - multimode 50/125 micron fibre, 500 MHz*km bandwidth
     OM1 - multimode 62.5/125 micron fibre, 200 MHz*km bandwidth

The maximum cable lengths at the three different link speeds are:

     Cable   4 Gbps   8 Gbps   16 Gbps
     ---------------------------------
     OM4     400m     190m     125m

(#EN0G) - PCIe2 8Gb 2-Port Fibre Channel Adapter

This feature ships a two-port, 8 Gb PCIe Gen2 Fibre Channel Adapter based on the QLogic QLE2562 Host Bus Adapter (HBA). Each port provides single initiator capability over a fibre link. The ports have LC type connectors and utilize shortwave laser optics. The adapter operates at link speeds of 2, 4, and 8 Gbps and will automatically negotiates to the highest speed possible. LEDs on each port provide information on the status and link speed of the port. The adapter connects to a Fibre Channel switch or can directly attach to a Fibre Channel port on a supported storage unit. N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) capability is supported through VIOS. Cables are the responsibility of the customer. Use multimode fibre optic cables with short-wave lasers that adhere to the following specifications:

  • OM3 - multimode 50/125 micron fibre, 2000 MHz*km bandwidth
  • OM2 - multimode 50/125 micron fibre, 500 MHz*km bandwidth
  • OM1 - multimode 62.5/125 micron fibre, 200 MHz*km bandwidth

Because core sizes are different, OM1 cables can only be connected to other OM1 cables. For best results, OM2 cables should not be connected to OM3 cables. However, if an OM2 cable is connected to an OM3 cable, the characteristics of the OM2 cable apply to the entire length of the cables. The following table shows the supported distances for the three different cable types at the three different link speeds.

(#EN12) - PCIe2 8Gb 4-port Fibre Channel Adapter

PCIe Gen2 8 Gigabit quad port Fibre Channel Adapter is a high- performance 8x short form Host Bus Adapter (HBA). Each port provides single initiator capability over a fiber link or with NPIV, multiple initiator capability is provided. The ports have LC type connectors and use shortwave laser optics. The adapter operates at link speeds of 2, 4, and 8 Gbps and will automatically negotiate to the highest speed possible. LEDs on each port provide information on the status and link speed of the port. This adapter is based on the QLogic QLE2564 PCIe Host Bus Adapter (HBA).

The adapter connects to a Fibre Channel switch. Direct device attachment has not been tested and is not supported.

N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) capability is supported through VIOS.

Cables are the responsibility of the customer. Use multimode fibre optic cables with short-wave lasers that adhere to the following specifications: OM3 - multimode 50/125 micron fibre, 2000 MHz*km bandwidth

     OM2 - multimode 50/125 micron fibre, 500 MHz*km bandwidth
     OM1 - multimode 62.5/125 micron fibre, 200 MHz*km bandwidth

Because core sizes are different, OM1 cables can only be connected to other OM1 cables. For best results, OM2 cables should not be connected to OM3 cables. However, if an OM2 cable is connected to an OM3 cable, the characteristics of the OM2 cable apply to the entire length of the cables.

The following table shows the supported distances for the three different cable types at the three different link speeds. Cable

     2.125 Gbps   4.25 Gbps   8.5 Gbps

(#EPTH) - Horizontal PDU Mounting Hardware

This feature ships the hardware required to properly horizontally mount one #EPTG/EPTJ, #EPTK/EPTL, #EPTM/EPTN or #EPTP/EPTQ PDU in a 1U 19-inch rack. A 1U blank panel for the front of the rack for air-flow control is included.

Without this hardware, the PDU can be mounted vertically in the rack's side pockets, but can only be poorly mounted horizontally. The front end of the PDU will be firmly attached to the rear of the rack. But the front of the PDU will be unsupported toward the middle of the rack. Without this hardware, the unsupported end of the PDU will rest on the hardware mounted immediately below it. If that underlying hardware is removed from the rack there is no support for the PDU.

Important Note: This feature code is typically used for an MES order and not for an original order of a new rack with #EPTn PDUs. As part of factory integration, IBM Manufacturing automatically adds this hardware without a feature code and at no additional charge when its #EPTn PDU placement logic calls for horizontally mounted PDUs. Use this feature code when (1) converting an existing vertically mounted #EPTn PDU to horizontal mounting or (2) separately ordering a #EPTn PDU for horizontal field installation.

  • Attributes provided: mounting hardware
  • Attributes required: High Function PDU (#EPT*) and space in 19-inch rack
  • Minimum required: 0
  • Maximum allowed: 9999 (Initial order maximum: 250)

(#EPTJ) - High Function 9xC19 PDU

Switched, Monitoring

This is an intelligent, switched 200-240 volt AC Power Distribution Unit (PDU) with nine C19 receptacles on the front of the PDU. The PDU is mounted on the rear of the rack making the nine C19 receptacles easily accessible. Each receptacle has a 20 amp circuit breaker. Depending on country wiring standards the PDU is single-phase or three-phase wye. See three-phase #EPTK/EPTL for countries which do not use wye wiring.

The PDU can be mounted vertically in rack side pockets or it can be mounted horizontally. If mounted horizontally, it uses 1 EIA (1U) of rack space. See feature #EPTH for horizontal mounting hardware.

Device power cords with a C20 plug connect to C19 PDU receptacles and are ordered separately. One country-specific wall line cord is also ordered separately and attaches to a UTG524-7 connector on the front of the PDU. Supported line cords include features #6489, #6491, #6492, #6653, #6654, #6655, #6656, #6657, #6658, and #6667.

Two RJ45 ports on the front of the PDU enable the client to monitor each receptacle's electrical power usage and to remotely switch any receptacle on or off. The PDU is shipped with a generic PDU password and IBM strongly urges clients to change it upon installation.

There are also three C13 receptacles on the rear of the PDU positioned toward the middle of the rack. These are generally not easily accessed and therefore IBM does not generally recommend their use.

#EPTG and #EPTJ are identical PDUs. Up to one lower price #EPTG can be ordered with a new 7014-T42/T00 rack in place of a no-charge #9188 PDU.

(No longer available as of January 23, 2018.)

1.9 TB SAS 2.5-inch (SFF) read intensive solid state drive (SSD) formatted in 4224 byte sectors (4k). The drive is mounted on a 2.5-inch SFF-2 carrier/tray to fit an expansion drawer such as the EXP24S. Drive is rated at 6Gb/s though actual performance is dependent upon multiple factors. CCIN is 5B21. Actual capacity is 1.86 TB but is rounded up for convenience.

Drive is designed for read intensive workloads with light write activity. Approximately 3,394 TB of data can be written over the life of the drive, but depending on the nature of the workload may be somewhat larger. After the warranty period, if the maximum write capability is achieved, the drive's replacement is not covered under IBM maintenance.

#ES80 and #ES81 are physically identical drives which have different feature codes to help the IBM configuration tools understand how the SSD is used. #ES80 indicates usage by AIX, Linux or VIOS. #ES81 indicates usage by IBM i.

931 GB SAS 2.5-inch (SFF) Mainstream solid state drive (SSD) formatted in 4224 byte sectors (4k). The drive is mounted on a 2.5-inch SFF-3 carrier/tray. Drive is rated at 6Gb/s though actual performance is dependent upon multiple factors.

DWPD (Drive Write Per Day) rating is 1 calculated over a 5 year period. Approximately 3,394 TB of data can be written over the life of the drive, but depending on the nature of the workload may be somewhat larger. After the warranty period, if the maximum write capability is achieved, the drive's replacement is not covered under IBM maintenance.

Features #ES83 and #ES84 are physically identical drives with the same 5B28 CCIN. Different feature codes help the IBM configuration tools understand how the SSD is used. #ES83 indicates usage by AIX, Linux or VIOS. #ES84 indicates usage by IBM i.

Note: As part of a larger industry transition, IBM Power Systems is in the process of gradually shifting away from offering 5xx (512/ 528) byte sector SAS drives (HDD or SSD) to 4K byte sector drives. Most AIX/Linux applications access SAS drives through a file system and experience no effect of this sector size transition. In much less common cases, an AIX/Linux application may access the disk drive directly through the raw device interface and may still require only 5xx byte sectors drives. If there are 4k usage concerns, check with the application provider to ensure compatibility with 4K byte sector drives.

Limitations:

  • The drive is mounted on a SFF-3 carrier/tray to fit into a POWER8 system unit's SFF-3 bays. JBOD formatting of 4096 byte sectors is not tested or supported.

(#ES8V) - 1.55TB SFF-3 SSD 4k eMLC4 for AIX/Linux

This SFF (2.5") SAS Solid State Drive (SSD) is shipped from IBM with 1.55 TB capacity formatted with 4k (4224) byte sectors. The drive is supported in SFF-3 SAS bays.

CCIN is 5B15.

ES8V and ES8W are physically identical drives which have different feature codes to help the IBM configuration tools understand how the SSD is used. ES8V indicates usage by AIX, Linux or VIOS. ES8W indicates usage by IBM i.

Limitations:

  • Due to physical differences in the carrier/tray on which the drive is mounted, the SSD only fits in POWER8 system unit SAS bays (SFF-3)
  • It does not fit in EXP24S drawers (SFF-2) or in #5802/#5803 I/O drawers (SFF-1) or in POWER7 system units (SFF-1) SAS bays. Also the drive was not tested with 4096 byte sectors and thus JBOD mode for AIX/Linux is not supported. Note 4k and 5xx byte sector drives cannot be mixed in the same array.
  • 4k drives cannot be reformatted to 5xx drives (or vice versa).

Note: As part of a larger industry transition, IBM Power Systems is in the process of gradually shifting away from offering 5xx (512/528) byte sector SAS drives (HDD or SSD) to 4K byte sector drives. Most AIX/Linux applications access SAS drives through a file system and experience no effect of this sector size transition. In much less common cases, an AIX/Linux application may access the disk drive directly through the raw device interface and may still require only 5xx byte sectors drives. If there are 4k usage concerns, check with the application provider to ensure compatibility with 4K byte sector drives.

(#ES8Y) - 931GB Mainstream SAS 4k SFF-2 SSD for AIX/Linux

931 GB SAS 2.5-inch (SFF) Mainstream solid state drive (SSD) formatted in 4224 byte sectors (4k). The drive is mounted on a 2.5-inch SFF-2 carrier/tray to fit an expansion drawer such as the EXP24SX. Drive is rated at 6Gb/s though actual performance is dependent upon multiple factors.

DWPD (Drive Write Per Day) rating is 1 calculated over a 5 year period. Approximately 3,394 TB of data can be written over the life of the drive, but depending on the nature of the workload may be somewhat larger. After the warranty period, if the maximum write capability is achieved, the drive's replacement is not covered under IBM maintenance.

3.72 TB SAS 2.5-inch (SFF) Mainstream solid state drive (SSD) formatted in 4224 byte sectors (4k). The drive is mounted on a 2.5-inch SFF-3 carrier/tray. Drive is rated at 6Gb/s though actual performance is dependent upon multiple factors.

DWPD (Drive Write Per Day) rating is 1 calculated over a 5 year period. Approximately 3,394 TB of data can be written over the life of the drive, but depending on the nature of the workload may be somewhat larger. After the warranty period, if the maximum write capability is achieved, the drive's replacement is not covered under IBM maintenance.

Features #ESE1 and #ESE2 are physically identical drives with the same 5B2C CCIN. Different feature codes help the IBM configuration tools understand how the SSD is used. #ESE1 indicates usage by AIX, Linux or VIOS. #ESE2 indicates usage by IBM i.

Note: As part of a larger industry transition, IBM Power Systems is in the process of gradually shifting away from offering 5xx (512/ 528) byte sector SAS drives (HDD or SSD) to 4K byte sector drives. Most AIX/Linux applications access SAS drives through a file system and experience no effect of this sector size transition. In much less common cases, an AIX/Linux application may access the disk drive directly through the raw device interface and may still require only 5xx byte sectors drives. If there are 4k usage concerns, check with the application provider to ensure compatibility with 4K byte sector drives.

Limitations:

  • The drive is mounted on a SFF-3 carrier/tray to fit into a POWER8 system unit's SFF-3 bays. JBOD formatting of 4096 byte sectors is not tested or supported. Drive cannot be reformatted to 5xx byte sectors. 5xx and 4k drives cannot be mixed in the same array. Older SAS adapters such as PCIe2 or earlier do not support 4k drives.
  • Attributes provided: 3.72 TB Mainstream SSD

#ESE7 and #ESE8 are physically identical drives with the same 5B2D CCIN. Different feature codes help the IBM configuration tools understand how the SSD is used. #ESE7 indicates usage by AIX, Linux or VIOS. #ESE8 indicates usage by IBM i.

Note: As part of a larger industry transition, IBM Power Systems is in the process of gradually shifting away from offering 5xx (512/ 528) byte sector SAS drives (HDD or SSD) to 4K byte sector drives. Most AIX/Linux applications access SAS drives through a file system and experience no effect of this sector size transition. In much less common cases, an AIX/Linux application may access the disk drive directly through the raw device interface and may still require only 5xx byte sectors drives. If there are 4k usage concerns, check with the application provider to ensure compatibility with 4K byte sector drives.

Limitations:

  • The drive is mounted on a SFF-2 carrier/tray and does not physically fit into a POWER8 system unit's SFF-3 bays. JBOD formatting of 4096 byte sectors is not tested or supported. Drive can not be reformatted to 5xx byte sectors. 5xx and 4k drives cannot be mixed in the same array. Older SAS adapters such as PCIe2 or earlier do not support 4k drives.
  • Attributes provided: 3.72 TB Mainstream SSD
  • Attributes required: Open SFF-2 SAS bay controlled by PCIe Gen3 PCIe SAS adapter or later.

This SFF (2.5") Enterprise SAS Solid State Drive (SSD) is shipped from IBM with 387 GB capacity formatted with 5xx (528) byte sectors. The drive is supported in SFF-2 SAS bays in the EXP24S (#5887) or EXP24SX (#ESLS) I/O drawer. This drive is rated at 10 DWPD (Drive Writes Per Day) calculated over a 5-year period.

Features #ESG5 and #ESG6 are physically identical drives with the same CCIN of 5B16. Different feature codes to help the IBM configuration tools understand how the SSD is used. ESG5 indicates usage by AIX, Linux or VIOS. ESG6 indicates usage by IBM i.

Limitations:

  • Due to physical differences in the carrier/tray on which the drive is mounted, the SSD only fits in SFF-2 bays such as found in EXP24SX storage enclosure and cannot be used in POWER8 system units (SFF-3) or in older SFF-1 SAS bays. Also the drive was not tested with 512 byte sectors and thus JBOD mode for AIX/Linux is not supported. 4k drives can not be reformatted to 5xx drives (or vice versa).

Note: As part of a larger industry transition, IBM Power Systems is in the process of gradually shifting away from offering 5xx (512/ 528) byte sector SAS drives (HDD or SSD) to 4K byte sector drives. Most AIX/Linux applications access SAS drives through a file system and experience no effect of this sector size transition.

Features #ESGB and #ESGC are physically identical drives with the same CCIN of 5B10. Different feature codes to help the IBM configuration tools understand how the SSD is used. ESGB indicates usage by AIX, Linux or VIOS. ESGC indicates usage by IBM i.

Limitations:

  • Due to physical differences in the carrier/tray on which the drive is mounted, the SSD only fits in SFF-2 bays such as found in EXP24SX storage enclosure and cannot be used in POWER8 system units (SFF-3) or in older SFF-1 SAS bays. Also the drive was not tested with 4096 byte sectors and thus JBOD mode for AIX/Linux is not supported. 4k drives can not be reformatted to 5xx drives (or vice versa).

Note: As part of a larger industry transition, IBM Power Systems is in the process of gradually shifting away from offering 5xx (512/ 528) byte sector SAS drives (HDD or SSD) to 4K byte sector drives. Most AIX/Linux applications access SAS drives through a file system and experience no effect of this sector size transition. In much less common cases, an AIX/Linux application may access the disk drive directly through the raw device interface and may still require only 5xx byte sectors drives. If there are 4k usage concerns, check with the application provider to ensure compatibility with 4K byte sector drives.

(#ESLL) - EXP12SX SAS Storage Enclosure

The EXP12SX is a storage expansion enclosure with twelve 3.5-inch large form factor (LFF) SAS bays. It supports up to 12 hot-swap Hard Disk Drives (HDD) in only 2 EIA of space in a 19-inch rack. The EXP12SX SFF bays use LFF gen1 (LFF-1) carriers/trays. 4k byte sector drives (4096 or 4224) are supported.

With AIX/Linux/VIOS, the EXP12SX can be ordered with four sets of 3 bays (mode 4), two sets of 6 bays (mode 2) or one set of 12 bays (mode 1). The mode setting can be changed in the field using software commands along with a specifically documented procedure. IMPORTANT NOTE: when changing mode, it is very important that you follow the documented procedures and that there is no data on the drives before the change. Improperly changing modes can potentially destroy existing RAID sets, prevent access to existing data, or allow other partitions to access another partition's existing data. Hire an expert to assist if you are not familiar with this type of re- configuration work.

The EXP12SX has redundant SAS paths to all drives via two redundant Enclosure Services Modules (ESMs). Four mini-SAS HD narrow ports are attached to PCIe Gen3 SAS adapters such as the #EJ0J/EJ0M or #EJ0L or #EJ14, or attached to an imbedded SAS controller in a POWER8 Scale-out server such as the Power S814, S822 or S824. Attachment between the SAS controller and the storage enclosure SAS ports is via the appropriate SAS YO12 or X12 cables. The PCIe Gen3 SAS adapters support 6Gb throughput. The EXP12SX has been designed to support up to 12Gb throughput if future SAS adapters support that capability.

The EXP12SX uses redundant power supplies and two power cords. Order two feature #ESLA for AC power supplies. The enclosure is shipped with adjustable depth rails and can accommodate rack depths from 59.5 - 75 cm (23.4 - 29.5 inches). Slot filler panels are provided for empty bays when initially shipped from IBM.
