Overview

The IBM e(logo)server pSeries 620 Model 6F1 (7025-6F1) is a 64-bit deskside follow-on to the popular 7025 Model F80. It can be configured with 1-, 2-, 4-, or 6-way, RS64 III or RS64 IV, 64-bit processors. RS64 IV processors use the same copper-based technology introduced in the high-end pSeries 680. Systems configured with the maximum of six processors run at 668 MHz, while other configurations run at 600 MHz (RS64 IV) or 450 MHz (RS64 III). The L2 cache per processor is 2 MB for an entry 1-way system, 4 MB for a 2- or 4-way system, and 8 MB for a high-end 6-way system. The Model 6F1 supports memory configurations up to 32 GB of SDRAM.

Each pSeries 620 Model 6F1 is built with a minimum of:

  • One — 1-way processor card
  • 256 MB SDRAM
  • Two — Power supplies
  • One — 9.1 GB Ultra3 SCSI or SSA disk drive
  • One — 32x maximum speed CD-ROM drive
  • One — 1.44 MB, 3.5-inch diskette drive

The Model 6F1 simplified feature structure has no base or select feature numbers, thus allowing more flexibility when ordering your configuration.

The Model 6F1 is packaged in a 10 x 17 (10 I/O hot-plug PCI slots, up to 17 disk/media bays) deskside chassis. Like most other current pSeries systems, the Model 6F1 is black.

The pSeries 620 Model 6F1 server includes a modular disk subsystem that simplifies addition and replacement of drives. It has a hot-swap storage maximum capacity of 436.8 GB and a flexible I/O subsystem of ten 64-bit PCI slots, which support hot-plug adapters. The Model 6F1 is shipped with the internal adapters and devices configured and installed; software can also be preinstalled if desired.

The Model 6F1 delivers enhanced reliability when an optional third power supply is ordered to provide redundant power and cooling. Many features, including most disk drives, PCI adapters, power supplies, and fans can be installed or removed while the system continues to operate.

The pSeries 620 Model 6F1 can be used as a stand-alone, multiuser, application or database server, and has the connectivity to participate in most currently installed UNIX® and PC networks. It can also be configured for use as an Ultra3 SCSI or Serial Storage Architecture (SSA) RAID server by taking advantage of the "Under-the-Covers" storage expansion capability, and its design allows for future system growth.

The Model 6F1 operates in a typical office environment with standard ac power at 100-127 volts or 200-240 volts.

The Model 6F1 is also available as part of the pSeries 620 Model 6F1 — HA Solution.

Description

IBM e(logo)server pSeries 620 Model 6F1

The pSeries 620 Model 6F1 is a powerful and expandable server combining the following attributes:

  • Outstanding 64-bit commercial price/performance in the 1- to 6-way pSeries Enterprise Server class utilizing PowerPC® technology.
  • Excellent reliability, availability, and serviceability provided by:
    • Error checking and correcting (ECC) memory and cache
    • Service Processor for integrated system monitoring
    • Hot-swap disk drives
    • Concurrent diagnostics
    • Electronic Service Agent™
  • Chipkill™ Memory
    • The Model 6F1 provides Chipkill Memory with selected memory options. Using advanced technology derived from IBM's ultra-reliable System/390® enterprise servers, Chipkill Memory protects the server from any single memory chip failure and multibit errors from any portion of a single memory chip.
    • Memory chip failures can cause server system crashes that can result in the permanent loss of business data. Many file server applications lack the means to recover data after a catastrophic failure of this kind. Even when recovery is possible, it can take hours — resulting in significant losses in productivity or revenue.
    • Chipkill DIMMs for the Model 6F1 provide the self-contained capability to correct real-time, multibit DRAM errors, including complete DRAM failures. This "RAID for memory" technology provides enhanced multibit error detection and correction that is transparent to the system.
  • Operating system support provided by AIX, the best rated UNIX operating system by noted industry consultant D.H. Brown. Over 10,000 AIX applications are available spanning commercial and technical needs.
  • Able to operate in a typical office environment with standard 115-volt or 220-volt ac power.
  • Preconfigured, tailored solutions available for ease of ordering, installation, and setup.
  • Supports Open Firmware based on the IEEE P1275 standard that further demonstrates IBM's commitment to open industry standards.
  • "Under-the-Covers" system scalability and expandability supporting:
    • Three media bays and two boot disk bays that can be configured for boot disk mirroring
    • Twelve hot-swap hard disk bays
    • One processor card slot holds a 1-, 2-, 4-, or 6-way card
    • Two memory cards with each containing up to eight DIMM pairs
    • Ten I/O slots for optional PCI expansion cards

    The two standard power supplies included will accommodate all "Under-the-Covers" scalability and expansion without requiring any modification. An optional third power supply can be ordered to provide redundancy and enhanced system availability.

  • A robust industry-standard, PCI-based I/O subsystem adds up to 1 GBps aggregate peak I/O bandwidth.
  • Offers an integrated SCSI controller with one internal Fast/Wide port and one external Ultra2 port, an Ethernet 10/100 controller, four 9-pin serial ports, and one parallel port. These are standard on the system without utilizing any of the expansion slots provided. Each system is shipped with two 9-pin to 25-pin converter cables.
  • Uses Synchronous DRAM (SDRAM) memory with greater performance addressing up to 32 GB of ECC memory. The 32 GB of maximum memory can be installed via the addition of DIMM quads to the memory cards. The 1-way processor card also has slots for four DIMM pairs.
  • A high-performance ECC L2 cache per processor of:
    • 2 MB on the 1-way processors
    • 4 MB on the 2- and 4-way processors
    • 8 MB on the 6-way processor

    It is 4-way set associative, which provides for a significant improvement in the cache hit rate efficiency.

  • A highly-integrated memory controller and I/O interface designed for balanced system performance with memory bandwidth up to 2.4 GB per second.
  • Supports Ultra3 SCSI hard disks "Under-the-Covers" and external Ultra3 SCSI subsystems.
  • Supports Serial Storage Architecture (SSA) hard disks "Under-the-Covers" and external SSA subsystems.
  • Includes two standard internal power supplies that combine to provide ample power for any configuration. An optional third internal power supply with two fans can be ordered to provide redundant power and cooling, allowing the system to continue running in the event of a failed fan or power supply.
  • "Under-the-Covers" RAID support provided by Ultra SCSI or SSA. Implementing Ultra SCSI or SSA RAID provides for RAID levels 0, 1, and 5. This means the acquisition of an additional external RAID subsystem may not be necessary when taking advantage of the "Under-the-Covers" storage expansion capacity the Model 6F1 provides.
  • Enhanced Ethernet communication via optional Gigabit adapter support.
  • Departmental server packaging in an attractive black deskside chassis.

The result is an enterprise server that delivers outstanding price/performance and supports the broad range of applications currently available to the pSeries line of servers running AIX Version 4.3.3 or 5.1, or later.

The Model 6F1 integrates key reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) attributes:

  • ECC on system memory and L2 cache; single-bit error correction and double-bit error detection
  • Parity detection for the system bus, PCI address, and data busses
  • Hot-swap disk drives
  • Disk drive fault tracking and warning
  • RAID 1 (via AIX disk mirroring function)
  • RAID 0, 1, and 5 under the covers (optional via adapter)
  • Online (concurrent) and remote (LAN or modem) system diagnostics
  • Vital Product Data (VPD) for most base-system, field replaceable units (FRUs)
  • Electronic Service Agent
  • Redundant power and cooling capability

The Electronic Service Agent, included as standard, enables or contributes to the following RAS functions, among others:

  • Integrated system environmental monitoring/alerting included as standard. This includes:
    • AC/DC voltage
    • Fan speed
    • Temperature sensing
  • Early Power Off Warnings (EPOW) and error log analysis and alert.
  • Auto-dial out, call IBM Service Center capability. The system objective is to predict a potential component failure and dispatch automatically an IBM service representative to take preventive maintenance measures to avoid an outage. The system can also call the IBM Service Center in the event of a critical failure.
  • Integrated system monitoring enhances failure error logging, analysis, and alert.
  • Re-booting can be programmed by the system administrator in most instances after experiencing the following conditions:
    • AC power restored (after a power loss)
    • Hardware checkstop failures
    • Machine check interrupt
    • Operating system hang or failure

All of this yields a 1- to 6-way SMP enterprise server platform of exceptional value capable of handling your demanding applications today and into the future.

Product Positioning

The pSeries 620 Model 6F1 consists of a deskside package (or tower) containing the:

  • Processors
  • Memory
  • Media
  • Ten hot-plug I/O slots
  • Two optional boot-disk bays
  • Up to 12 additional 1-inch disk bays

The system has redundant power and cooling as an optional feature. The introduction of hot-plug PCI I/O slots brings new and increased levels of availability for this system. The need to power down and reboot is eliminated when adding or replacing most PCI adapters, thus reducing time delays while keeping network and application processing up and running. The Model 6F1 system can accommodate one processor module in its smallest configuration, and grow to 2, 4, or 6 processors as required, offering outstanding scalability as your business needs dictate.

The Model 6F1 is targeted at the key commercial processing segments of e-business, ERP, SCM, and Business Intelligence, in either small organizations or as distributed systems in larger organizations. In each segment, the Model 6F1 can meet critical requirements. For example:

  • In ERP, the Model 6F1 is an excellent application server with its powerful central processing units (CPU), memory capacity, and optional data storage capability.
  • In e-business, the Model 6F1 can serve as a fast, highly reliable, business-to-business Web server, going to other systems for business data or hosting the data storage itself.

As a deskside configuration, the Model 6F1 offers flexibility regarding the number of CPUs, memory DIMMs, PCI adapters, and disk drives desired for the specific application or usage. Memory can expand from 256 MB up to 32 GB. Up to 10 PCI adapters and 12 disk drives can be installed. An additional boot disk bay holding two SCSI boot drives is available without impacting the 12 data storage disk drives.

The system offering brings new levels of price/performance to your application and e-business operations as improved performance will be offered without commensurate price increases.

Other reliability improvements help to make the Model 6F1 very competitive. Its CPU de-allocation function enables the system to take a failing processor offline without rebooting the system in the remote possibility that a failure should occur. The service processor can record this action and notify the systems administrator or service personnel of the condition. Computing operation continues with the processor deactivated, allowing repair to be scheduled at a time convenient to your processing schedule.

Hot-plug functionality of the PCI I/O subsystem brings new levels of up-time to your system for the replacement or addition of I/O adapters. The design of this function shows a concern for the usability and convenience for the customer who performs this task. Selective disablement of an adapter can be made as necessary while system operations not dependent on this adapter continue to run without being affected. AIX assists the user with guidance through the process, helping to achieve success.

In addition, an HACMP packaged solution with dual Model 6F1 systems will be offered to provide industry-leading high availability. High availability continues to be an ongoing and growing need for customers. IBM continues its tradition of providing high-availability solutions with the pSeries 620. The Model 6F1 can be ordered in a high-availability configuration with a choice of components. The high-availability configuration, combined with ClusterProven™ software, gives you a superior base for your high-availability requirements. A complete and simple process is offered for deciding which components are required and what software is best suited to a high-availability environment.

The pSeries 620 Model 6F1 performs its role as the deskside entry platform of the pSeries family of products, complementing the pSeries 640, 660, and 680 as the entry, mid-sized, and high-end rack-based systems in this powerful SMP server lineup.

As a member of the pSeries family, the Model 6F1 will continue to meet your ever growing needs for more performance, scalability, and availability in a convenient, efficient deskside package.

  • Memory DIMMs on the 1-way processor card must be installed in pairs. Memory DIMMs on the 16-position memory boards must be installed in quads. All DIMMs in each pair or quad must be the same capacity.
  • A minimum of four memory DIMMs must be installed on each 16-position memory board.
  • A maximum of two 16-position memory boards can be installed on systems containing 2-way, 4-way, or 6-way processor cards. The first memory board must be full before a second memory board can be ordered.
  • No memory boards can be installed in a Model 6F1 system when memory DIMMs are mounted on the 1-way processor card. Systems containing the 1-way processor card with no memory DIMMs installed are limited to one 16-position memory board.
  • Plans for future memory upgrades should be taken into account to obtain optimal performance without limiting future memory expansion.
  • IBM recommends systems configured with 4 GB of memory, or greater, to have access to a 4-mm or 8-mm tape drive for submission of system dump information, if required. This function may be accomplished via locally attached or network attached devices as appropriate.

Power

  • Each Model 6F1 system is built with two standard modular power supplies. The combined output of the two power supplies is sufficient to power any Model 6F1 system configuration. An optional third power supply can be ordered to provide redundant power and enable the system to continue normal operation in the event of a power supply failure. The third power supply comes with two additional fans that provide redundant cooling.

Disks, Media, and Boot Devices

  • System boot support is supported via SCSI adapters, SSA adapters, or from network via Ethernet or token-ring adapters.

PCI Slots and Adapters

  • The Model 6F1 PCI slot population rules are complex. The following PCI slot and adapter limitations are provided for general guidance purposes. Extensive configuration rules and checking procedures are incorporated into the PCRS6000 configurator to ensure valid system configurations. Configurations generated without utilizing the PCRS6000 configurator may create orders that cannot be manufactured, resulting in possible order rejection and delayed delivery.
  • System maximum limits for adapters and devices may not provide optimal system performance. These limits are given for connectivity and functionality assurance.
  • The combined total number of Serial Storage Architecture (SSA) adapters supported is a maximum of six.

SCSI and SSA Configuration Information

  • If a SCSI 6-pack backplane (#6553) is ordered, it must be connected to one of the following:
    • Internal port on a PCI SCSI adapter, using a 1.1-meter SCSI cable (#2432)
    • Integrated external SCSI port, using an External Port-to-Internal 6-pack SCSI cable assembly (#3109)
    • External port on a PCI Ultra2 SCSI adapter, using a SCSI cable assembly (#3109)
  • If a SCSI 2-pack backplane (#6555) is ordered, at least one disk drive in the 2-pack must be driven from the internal integrated SCSI port. If present, a second disk drive in the 2-pack can also be driven from the internal integrated SCSI port, or it can be driven from a PCI SCSI adapter, connected with a SCSI 4-drop cable (#2421) and a SCSI 1.1-meter cable (#2432). For this configuration, a Single-Ended PCI SCSI adapter is required.
  • The 4-drop SCSI cable that comes standard with every Model 6F1 system supports up to 2 SCSI disk drives and 2 media devices. It must be connected to the integrated internal SCSI port, using an intermediate 0.2-meter SCSI cable that also comes standard with every Model 6F1 system.
  • If a SCSI 4-drop cable (#2421) is ordered, it must be connected through a SCSI 1.1-meter cable (#2432) to the internal port on a Single-Ended PCI SCSI adapter. Ordering the SCSI 4-drop cable enables independent SCSI boot disk mirroring in the 2-pack.
  • Daisy-chaining of SCSI 6-packs is not supported. Each SCSI 6-pack must be driven from a separate integrated SCSI port or PCI SCSI adapter port.
  • Daisy-chaining of SSA 6-packs is required if there are two internal SSA 6-packs. Internal and external SSA disks may be operated on the same SSA cabling loop, up to the maximum number supported by the SSA adapter.
  • The Model 6F1 is limited to a combined total of one SCSI or SSA cable assembly that passes through the rear bulkhead of the chassis. A system may have one SSA cable assembly (#2454) or one SCSI cable assembly (#3109), but not both.
  • All Model 6F1 systems must have at least one disk drive. Therefore, all Model 6F1 systems must have at least one SCSI or SSA backplane, which may be either a 2-pack or a 6-pack.
  • Each SSA 6-pack must contain at least two SSA disk drives.
  • A Model 6F1 system may have SCSI and SSA backplanes in any combination, up to a maximum of one 2-pack and two 6-packs.
  • The SCSI and the SSA 6-packs support hot swapping of disk drives. Although the same SCSI disk drives can be installed in either the 6-pack or the 2-pack, the 2-pack does not support hot swapping of disk drives.

pSeries 620 Model 6F1 Processor Feature Conversions: Customers with installed pSeries 620 Model 6F1 systems can increase the number of processors in their system up to a maximum of a 6-way SMP via feature conversions. Such conversions are accomplished by replacing the system's existing processor card with a processor card containing faster processors or a greater number of processors. The existing Model 6F1 processor card being replaced is returned to IBM.

The following RS64 III and RS64 IV processor feature conversions are available to Model 6F1 customers who want to install faster processors or increase the number of processors in their systems:
