Overview
Bottom rule

The IBM Power System E880 with POWER8 system node uses 8-core symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) processor chips with 512 KB of L2 and 8 MB of L3 cache per core, DDR3 CDIMM memory, dual memory controllers, and an industry-standard Gen3 PCIe I/O bus designed to use 32 lanes organized in two sets of x16. The peak memory and I/O bandwidths per system node have increased over 300% compared to POWER7+™ servers. The two primary system building blocks are one system control unit and one or more system nodes. Additional I/O support is provided with a 19-inch PCIe Gen3 I/O expansion drawer and an EXP24S SFF Gen2 expansion drawer. The processors, memory, and base I/O are packaged within the system nodes. The system nodes are rack based.

New POWER8 processor single chip modules (SCM) are provided in each system node. Processors are interconnected by two sets of system buses. Each SCM contains two memory controllers per processor module. Four 4.35 GHz 8-core SCMs are used in each system node, providing 32 cores (#EPBB). As few as eight cores in the system can be activated or up to 100% of the cores in the system can be activated. Incrementing one core at a time is available through built-in capacity on demand (CoD) functions to the full capacity of the system.

The Power E880 can have up to four system nodes per system. With 32-core nodes, the maximum is a 128-core system. In 2014, up to two system nodes per server are supported or a maximum of 64 cores.

The system control unit provides redundant system master clocks and redundant system master service processors (FSPs). Additionally, it contains the Operator Panel, the System VPD, and the Base DVD.

The 1600 MHz memory CDIMMs are available as 64 GB (#EM8J), 128 GB (#EM8K), 256 GB (#EM8L), and 512 GB (#EM8M) memory features. Each memory feature provides four CDIMMs. CDIMMs are custom DIMMs that enhance memory performance and memory reliability. Each system node has 32 CDIMM slots that support a maximum of eight memory features. Using 512 GB CDIMM features yields a maximum of 4 TB per node. A two-node system has a maximum of 16 memory features and 8 TB. A four-node system has a maximum of 16 TB Capacity. Memory activations of 50% of the installed capacity are required.

The 19-inch PCIe Gen3 4U I/O Expansion Drawer (#EMX0) provides slots to hold PCIe adapters that cannot be placed into a system node. In 2014, either zero or two PCIe I/O expansion drawers can be attached per system node. Two PCIe I/O drawers provide 24 PCIe Gen3 adapter slots. Thus a two-node system has a maximum of 48 PCIe Gen3 slots in I/O drawers plus PCIe slots in the system node.

Direct attached storage is supported with the EXP24S SFF Gen2-bay Drawer (#5887), an expansion drawer with twenty-four 2.5-inch form-factor SAS bays.

As part of the IBM commitment to delivering the most flexible and resilient Power high-end systems, all initial shipments of Power E880 systems come with a specific number of no-charge elastic processor and memory days. The number of days depends on the configuration of the system. For every new Power E880, 15 elastic CoD processor days for every processor core (inactive or active) installed on the system and 240 GB of elastic CoD memory days for every processor core (inactive or active) are included. These elastic CoD processor and memory days must be used in accordance with the temporary capacity on demand terms and conditions. Also available are 90-day temporary elastic CoD processor and memory enablement features. These features enable a system to temporarily activate all inactive processor and memory CoD resources for a maximum of 90 days before you must order another temporary elastic enablement feature number.

With Power Enterprise Pools, IBM continues to enhance the ability to freely move processor and memory activations from one system to another system in the same pool, without the need for IBM involvement. This capability now allows the movement of resources not only between like systems, but also between generations of Power Systems™, and thus delivers unsurpassed flexibility for workload balancing and system maintenance. Power Enterprise Pools deliver the support to meet clients' business goals when it comes to the following:

Power Enterprise Pools mobile activations are available for use on the Power 770, 780, and 795 systems and now on the Power E870 and E880 systems. Two types of Power Enterprise Pools can be created: a mid-range pool that can consist of Power 770s (9117-MMD) and Power E870s (9119-MME) and High End Pools that consist of Power 780s (9179-MHD), Power 795s (9119-FHB), and Power E880s (9119-MHE).

Summary of features

The following features are available on the Power E880:

Processor cores and memory

System node PCIe slots

PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer

EXP24S Disk/SSD Drawer

DVD and boot devices

Racks

The Power E880 is designed to fit a standard 19-inch rack. IBM Development has tested and certified the system in the IBM Enterprise rack (7014-T42, 7014-T00, #0551, or #0553). 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.

It is highly recommended that the Power E880 be ordered with an IBM 42U enterprise rack (7014-T42 or #0553). An initial system order is placed in a 7014-T42 rack. A same serial-number model upgrade MES is placed in a feature 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. The 7014-T42 or feature 0553 is a 2-meter enterprise rack, providing 42U or 42 EIA of space. Clients who don't want this rack can remove it from the order, and IBM Manufacturing will then remove the server from the rack after testing and ship the server in separate packages without a rack. Use the factory-deracking code ER21 on the order to do this.

Additional E880 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 feature codes on the same order as the I/O drawers. Use feature 0553 (42U enterprise rack) for this order.

Three rack front door options are supported with Power E880 system nodes for the 42U enterprise rack (7014-T42 or #0553), the acoustic door (#6249), the attractive geometrically accented door (#ERG7) and the cost-effective plain front door (#6069). The front trim kit is also supported (#6272). The Power 880 logo rack door (#6250) is not supported.

It is strongly recommended that the bottom 2U of the rack be left open for cable management when below-floor cabling is used. Likewise, if overhead cabling is used, it is strongly recommended the top 2U be left open for cable management. If clients are using both overhead and below-floor cabling, leaving 2U open on both the top and bottom of the rack is a good practice. Rack configurations placing equipment in these 2U locations can be more difficult to service if there are a lot of cables running by them in the rack.

The system node and system control unit must be immediately physically adjacent to each other in a contiguous space. The cables connecting the system control unit and the system node are built to very specific lengths. In a two-node configuration, system node 1 is on top, and then the system control unit in the middle and system node 2 is on the bottom. Use specify feature ER16 to reserve 5U space in the rack for a future system node and avoid the work of shifting equipment in the rack in the future. On a four-node configuration system node 4 is on the top, then node 1 is below it, then the system control unit, then node 2 and finally node 3 is on the bottom.

With the 2 meter 7014-T42 or feature 0553, a rear rack extension of 8 inches or 20.3 cm (#ERG0) provides space to hold cables on the side of the rack and keep the center area clear for cooling and service access. Including this extension is very, very strongly recommended where large numbers of thicker I/O cables are present or may be added in the future. The definition of a "large number" depends on the type of I/O cables used. Probably around 64 short-length SAS cables per side of a rack or around 50 longer-length (thicker) SAS cables per side of a rack is a good rule of thumb. Generally, other I/O cables are thinner and easier to fit in the sides of the rack and the number of cables can be higher. SAS cables are most commonly found with multiple EXP24S SAS drawers (#5887) driven by multiple PCIe SAS adapters. For this reason, it can be a very good practice to keep multiple EXP24S drawers in the same rack as the PCIe Gen3 I/O drawer or in a separate rack close to the PCIe Gen3 I/O drawer, using shorter, thinner SAS cables. The feature ERG0 extension can be good to use even with a smaller numbers of cables as it enhances the ease of cable management with the extra space it provides.

Multiple 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 any delay in service it is very strongly recommended that the client obtain an optional lift tool (#EB2Z). One EB2Z lift tool can be shared among many servers and I/O drawers. The EB2Z lift tool provides a hand crank to lift and position up to 159 kg (350 lb). The EB2Z lift tool is 1.12 meters x 0.62 meters (44 in. x 24.5 in.). Note that a single system node can weigh up to 75.7 kg (167 lb).

Hot-plug options

The following options are hot-plug capable:

If the system boot device or system console is attached using an I/O adapter feature, that adapter may not be hot-plugged if a nonredundant topology has been implemented.

PowerVM

PowerVM Enterprise virtualization is built into the Power E880 system and provides the complete set of PowerVM virtualization functionality needed for Power enterprise servers with POWER8 technology. This enables efficient resource sharing through virtualization, which allows workload consolidation and secure workload isolation as well as the flexibility to redeploy resources dynamically.

Other PowerVM technologies include the following:


Note: Alternative configuration options are available on a special bid basis from your IBM representative or Business Partner.

Active Memory Expansion

Active Memory Expansion is an innovative POWER7, POWER7+, and POWER8 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. Feedback from many POWER7 and POWER7+ clients using the function has been very positive.

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 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 EM82, 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.

IBM i operating system

For clients loading the IBM i operating system, the four-digit numeric QPRCFEAT value used on the 9119-MME or 9119-MHE is the same as the four-digit numeric feature number for the processors used in the system. For example, if the processor feature number in a system is EPBA, the QPRCFEAT value for the system would be EPBA.

Capacity backup offering (applies to IBM i only)

The Power System 880 Capacity Backup (CBU) designation can help meet your requirements for a second system to use for backup, high availability, and disaster recovery. It enables you to temporarily transfer IBM i processor license entitlements and 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlements purchased for a primary machine to a secondary CBU-designated system. Temporarily transferring these resources instead of purchasing them for your secondary system may result in significant savings. Processor activations cannot be transferred as part of this CBU offering, but programs such as Power Enterprise Pools are available for the function.

The CBU specify feature number 4891 is available only as part of a new server purchase or during an MES upgrade from an existing system to a 9119-MHE. Certain system prerequisites must be met, and system registration and approval are required before the CBU specify feature can be applied on a new server. A used system that has an existing CBU feature cannot be registered. The only way to attain a CBU feature that can be registered is with a plant order.

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

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

The primary system for a E880 server can be any of the following:

These systems have IBM i software licenses with an IBM i P30 software tier, or higher. The primary machine must be in the same enterprise as the CBU system.

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

Before you can temporarily transfer 5250 entitlements, you must have more than one 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlement on the primary server and at least one 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlement on the CBU system. You may then transfer the entitlements that are not required on the primary server during the time of transfer and that are above the minimum of one entitlement. Note that if you are using software replication (versus PowerHA), you may well need more than a minimum of one entitlement on the CBU to support the replication workload.

For example, if you have a 64-core Power 780 as your primary system with twenty IBM i processor license entitlements (nineteen above the minimum) and two 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlements (one above the minimum), you can temporarily transfer up to nineteen IBM i entitlements and one 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlement. During the temporary transfer, the CBU system's internal records of its total number of IBM i processor entitlements is not updated, and you may see IBM i license noncompliance warning messages from the CBU system.

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

Power Enterprise Pools

Power Enterprise Pools provide a level of flexibility and value for systems that operate together as a pool of resources. Power Enterprise Pools mobile activations are available for use on the Power 770, 780, and 795 systems and now on the new Power E870 and E880 systems. They can be assigned to any system in a predefined pool by the user with simple HMC commands. IBM does not need to be notified when these resources are reassigned within a pool. The simplicity of operations offers new flexibility when managing large workloads in a pool of systems. This capability is especially appealing to aid in providing continuous application availability during maintenance windows. Not only can workloads easily move to alternate systems, but now the activations can move as well.

Now with the availability of the new Power E870 and E880 systems, IBM continues to enhance the ability to freely move processor and memory activations from one system to another system in the same pool, without the need for IBM involvement. This capability now allows the movement of resources not only between like systems but also between generations of Power Systems, and thus delivering unsurpassed flexibility for workload balancing and system maintenance.

Now, more than ever, Power Enterprise Pools delivers the support to meet client's business goals when it comes to the following:

Prerequisites for Power Enterprise Pools:

Two types of pools are available. One that enables Power 770 (9117-MMD) or Power E870 (9119-MME) class systems to run in the same pool and the other that enables Power 780 (9179-MHD), Power 795 (9119-FHB), and Power E890 (9119-MHE) class systems to run in the same pool. Both pools allow both processor and memory activations to move between servers within the pool. Systems with different clock speeds are supported, co-existing within the same pool. All systems in the pool must be attached to the same HMC.

Power Systems users now have the satisfaction of knowing that as their requirements change, so can their systems. A simple movement of activations from one system to another helps users rebalance resources and respond to business needs. Maintenance windows now open up more easily as both workloads and activations move transparently across systems. Even disaster recovery planning becomes more manageable with the ability to move activations where and when they are needed. Power Enterprise Pools are just one more reason why enterprise class servers from Power Systems deliver value for your ever-changing business.

Mobile and static activations

A new, more flexible activation type is employed for Power Enterprise Pools. Historically, only "static" activations that could not move from server to server were available. These static activations remain available on the Power 770, 780, and 795, and are announced on the E870 and E880 and a certain number are required per server. But mobile activation features can be moved in the Power Enterprise Pool. Mobile activations apply to both processor core activations and memory activations.

The new Power E870 and E880 must have at least eight cores activated in static capability. All remaining processor core activations on these systems can optionally be mobile activations, be static activations, or be a mixture. Static and mobile core activations can co-reside in the same system and in the same partition.

A minimum of 50% of the memory on the system must be active. A maximum of 75% of all physically installed memory can have mobile activations. A minimum of 25% of all memory activations on a server must have static activations. Static and mobile memory activations can coreside in the same system and in the same partition. Mobile activation feature codes are in 100 GB increments.

Existing static activation features can be converted to mobile activations for memory and cores. To provide administrative and pricing advantages, there are "regular" static core activations and "mobile-enabled" static core activations. The price of a mobile-enabled core activation is priced the same as a mobile core activation. However, there is no-charge for converting a mobile-enabled activation to a mobile activation. This allows the client to avoid the additional conversion premium charge when converting an existing static core activation to a mobile core activation.

The new mobile activation features are as follows:

For the Power E870 and E880   100 GB Mobile Memory Activation (#EMA7)
For the Power E870 and E880   100 GB Mobile Enabled Memory Activation
                              (#EMA9)
For the Power E870            1-core Mobile Activation for EPBA (#EPBJ)
For the Power E870            1-core Mobile Activation for EPBC (#EPBL)
For the Power E870            1-core Mobile-Enabled Activation for EPBA
                              (#EPBN)
For the Power E870            1-core Mobile-Enabled Activation for EPBC
                              (#EPBQ)
For the Power E880            1-core Mobile Activation for EPBC (#EPBK)
For the Power E880            1-core Mobile-Enabled Activation for EPBB
                              (#EPBP)
 

The Power Enterprise Pools mobile activation feature codes continue to exist for the Power 770, 780, and 795 servers and can co-exist in the same pool as the new Power E870 and E880 feature codes. The Power 770, 780, and 795 mobile activations feature codes are as follows:

For Power 770, 780, 795      100 GB Mobile Memory Activation (#EMA4)
For Power 770                1-Core Mobile Activation (#EP22)
For Power 770                1-core Mobile-enabled activation  (#EPMC, #EPMD)
For Power 780, 795           1-Core Mobile Activation (#EP23)
For Power 780                1-core Mobile-enabled activation (#EPHL, #EPHM)
For Power 795                1-core Mobile-enabled activation ( #4715, #4725)
 

Power Enterprise Pools and the HMC

Each Power Enterprise Pool is managed by a single master HMC. The HMC that was used to create a Power Enterprise Pool is set as the master HMC of that pool. After a Power Enterprise Pool is created, a redundant HMC can be configured as a backup. All Power Enterprise Pool resource assignments must be performed by the master HMC. When powering on or restarting a server, ensure that the server is connected to the master HMC. This ensures that the required Mobile CoD resources are assigned to the server.

The maximum number of systems in a Power Enterprise Pool is 32 high-end or 48 mid-range systems. An HMC can manage multiple Power Enterprise Pools but is limited to 1000 total partitions. The HMC can also manage systems that are not part of the Power Enterprise Pool. Powering down an HMC does not limit the assigned resources of participating systems in a pool but does limit the ability to perform pool change operations.

After a Power Enterprise Pool is created, the HMC can be used to perform the following functions:

Power Enterprise Pools qualifying machines

To qualify for use of the Power Enterprise Pool offering, a participating system must be one of the following:

Each system must have installed Machine Code release level 7.8.0, or later, and be configured with at least the minimum amount of permanently active processor cores (listed below). Processor and memory activations that are enabled for movement within the pool will be in addition to these base minimum configurations.

Ordering Power Enterprise Pools

Ordering and enabling mobile activations for enterprise class systems is accomplished by following these steps:

  1. Complete and submit the Power Enterprise Pools contract and addendum (Z126-6228 and Z126-6229), specifying all system serial numbers to be included in the pool. To generate a pool ID number, send a copy to the Power Systems CoD Project Office at pcod@us.ibm.com. This IBM License Supplement for Power Enterprise Pools (Z126-6228) is required prior to ordering mobile resources but is only required once per client. The IBM License Supplement for Power Enterprise Pools Addendum (Z126-6229) is used to assign or remove systems to or from a pool.
  2. Order mobile enablement, processor, and memory activation features for participating systems. Every system in the pool must have feature EB35 as an identifier.
  3. Ensure all participating systems and controlling HMCs have the proper level of supporting software (eFW 7.8, or later, for systems; V7.8, or later, for HMCs)
  4. When the order is fulfilled, a configuration file will be generated that contains a Power Enterprise Pool membership activation code for each of the systems in the pool along with the mobile processor and memory activations. This file will be made available on the IBM COD website at
    http://www-912.ibm.com/pod/pod

    Download the client-specific configuration file with mobile activations to the controlling HMC for the pool. The file will work only for the specified system serial numbers. A new file will be generated when systems or mobile resources are added or removed from the pool.

Adding or removing systems from Power Enterprise Pools

Adding or removing a system from an established Power Enterprise Pool requires notification to IBM. An updated addendum must be submitted to the Power Systems CoD Project Office (pcod@us.ibm.com) to make this change. When the update is processed, a new pool configuration file will be posted on the CoD website and must be downloaded to the controlling HMC.

Before removal from a pool, all assets (including mobile resources) that were originally purchased with the system must be returned to that same system serial number. Mobile assets belonging to a system may qualify for transfer to another system serial number, depending on specific qualifying guidelines, and will require additional administrative action.

Systems removed from a pool can join another pool and contribute mobile activation resources to the new pool or use another system's mobile activation resources. Mobile activations require a pool ID to be recognized.

Capacity on demand

Several types of capacity on demand (CoD) processors are optionally available for the Power E880 system node. 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.

If a Power E880 system node uses the IBM i operating system and the temporarily activated cores were used for IBM i partitions, you must inform the sales team placing the billing feature order which operating system caused the temporary elastic CoD processor use so that the correct feature can be used for billing.

Use the following features to order enablement features and support billing charges on the Power E880:

All initial shipments of Power E880 system nodes come with a specific number of no-charge elastic processor and memory days. The number of days depends on the configuration of the system. For every new Power E880, 15 elastic CoD processor days for every processor core (inactive or active) installed on the system and 240 GB of elastic CoD memory days for every processor core (inactive or active) are included. MES orders do not include the no-charge elastic processor and memory days.

The following features provide no-charge elastic processor and memory days:

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

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 9119-MHE.

If a Power E880 system node uses the IBM i operating system and the temporarily activated cores were used for IBM i partitions, the client must inform the sales team placing the billing feature order which operating system caused the temporary Utility CoD processor use so that the correct feature can be used for billing.

Top rule
Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability
Bottom rule

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 leading to system outages.

Such components include power supplies, fans, processor and memory voltage regulation outputs, global service processors, and processor clocks.

All of these redundant elements are present, even in single-system node systems.

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. As 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 to be corrected and for solid single-cell errors 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.

Mutual surveillance

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 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:

Service environment

The POWER8 processor-based system requires attachment to one or more HMCs.

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 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.


Note: Because the 9119-MME and 9119-MHE systems have an optional DVD-RAM, alternative methods for maintaining and servicing the system need to be available if the DVD-RAM is not ordered. An external Internet connection must be available to maintain or update system firmware to the latest required level.

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

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:

In the Guiding Light service indicator implementation, when a fault condition is detected on the POWER8 processor-based server, a blue Enclosure Fault LED will illuminate on the enclosure containing the failing part. The Guiding Light system pinpoints the exact part by blinking the amber FRU identify LED associated with the part to be replaced when selected by the servicer as part of the repair procedure. This action will roll up to the blue enclosure locate LED and down to the individual component to be serviced.

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:

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:

Concurrent maintenance

It is expected that the majority of the components that will fail will be able to be replaced using concurrent maintenance. These include power supplies, power cable, 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 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.

Packing for service

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

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. 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 OS to report platform recoverable errors and errors associated with PCI adapters/devices. When the information is logged in the SFP application, if the system is properly configured, a call home service request will be initiated and the pertinent failure data with service parts information and part locations will be sent to an IBM service organization. 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, Linux, or IBM i 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. It is expected that most of the 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.

Service processor

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

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. 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.

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

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/esa/

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.

IBM Power System E880 model MHE

System node

System control unit

PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer

To help assure installability and serviceability in non-IBM, industry-standard racks, review the vendor's installation planning information for any product-specific installation requirements.

Operating environment

The Power E880 must be installed in a rack with a rear door and side panels for EMC compliance. The native HMC Ethernet ports must use shielded Ethernet cables.


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.

EMC conformance classification

This equipment is subject to FCC rules and shall comply with the appropriate FCC rules before final delivery to the buyer or centers of distribution.

IBM factory rack integration:

The 9119-MHE requires integration in a 2.0 m rack, 42 EIA enterprise rack (7014-T42 or #0553), which provides:

A single 7014-T42 rack can be ordered containing one or two Power E880 systems. Note that two four-node Power E880 will not fit in a single 42U rack and that care must be taken anytime ordering a pair of Power 880 servers in a rack to ensure there is space for horizontal PDUs, future system node additions and anything else the rack needs to contain. A customer can order one factory-integrated system node and later order an additional system node to be installed in the same rack at the client establishment. IBM factory-integrated orders of the 7014-T42 can be with standard rack doors (#ERG7 or #6069) or OEM doors. On initial order, if the rack contains a system node, the 7014-T42 machine/type 1 must be ordered. If a MES same-serial-number upgrade the 0553 feature 1 must be ordered.

See also deracking feature ER21.

Only horizontal PDUs are used by IBM Manufacturing in racks hosting the 9119-MHE systems. Each PDU will occupy one EIA to aid cable routing.

Minimum requirements for the 7014-T42 rack integration:

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://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/flrt/home

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

An HMC is required to manage POWER8 processor-based system nodes implementing partitioning. 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 CR8 rack models or 7042 -- CR8 deskside model, or later.

When PowerVC is enabled, 4 GB of RAM is recommended. HMC 7042-CR5 ships with a default of 2 GB RAM.

Software requirements

Increased uptime: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to enhance the Warranty or Maintenance Agreement by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can translate to less wasted time monitoring the "symptoms," diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. Its 24 x 7 monitoring and reporting mean no more dependence 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 securely transmits either via the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem, and can be configured to communicate securely through gateways 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. System inventory information is stored in a secure database, which is protected behind IBM firewalls. It is viewable only by the customer and IBM. The customer's business applications or business data is never transmitted to IBM.

More accurate reporting: Since 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 Support Web site at

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic

My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by 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 Electronic Service Agent information that has been collected from your system, customers are able to see search results that apply specifically to their systems.

Products -- terms and conditions

Warranty period

One year.

An IBM part or feature installed during the initial installation of an IBM machine is subject to a full warranty effective on the date of installation of the machine. An IBM part or feature that replaces a previously installed part or feature assumes the remainder of the warranty period for the replaced part or feature. An IBM part or feature added to a machine without replacing a previously installed part or feature is subject to a full warranty effective on its date of installation. Unless specified otherwise, the warranty period, type of warranty service, and service level of a part or feature are the same as those for the machine in which it is installed.

Warranty services

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

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