RAS Features and Functions

Excellent quality and reliability are inherent in all facets of IBM e(logo)server pSeries products. The measures taken help the products to perform reliably, efficiently handle infrequent failures in a nondisruptive fashion, and provide timely and competent repair allowing resumption of operations with minimal inconvenience. Reliability begins with the development of architectures, where RAS innovations are of paramount importance. It flows through design and product development stages, where RAS designs are reviewed, assessed, developed, evaluated, and optimized. It continues through the manufacturing and release processes, where the manufacturing quality is extensively measured and evaluated. It culminates in service and support, where:

  • Reliability is consistently monitored for deviation from the criteria.
  • Warranty and maintenance have high priority.
  • Significant customer problems are assigned to and addressed by an expert team.

pSeries system processes, from the architectural and concept phases of development through the provision of service and support, are ISO-certified and audited periodically for ISO compliance by representatives of Underwriters Laboratories.

Reliability — Fault Avoidance: Major effort has been spent on the development of the pSeries 660 Model 6H1 system to analyze single points-of-failure within the CEC (comprised of the processors, memory, and the I/O interface) and to either eliminate them or to provide hardening capabilities to significantly reduce the probability of failure. The best way to harden a system is to prevent errors from occurring. Components within the CEC were selected to provide "server" levels of reliability. These components provide the highest levels of reliability available within IBM and undergo additional stress testing and screening. During the design and development process, subsystems go through rigorous verification and integration testing processes. During system manufacturing, systems again go through a thorough testing process in pursuance of the highest product quality level.

Extensive error detecting and checking circuitry is included so that most infrequent component failures are recognized and corrected automatically or properly reported for isolation and repair, thus preserving the integrity of data stored and transported in the system. Hardware and software failures are recorded in the AIX log facility and analyzed by error log analysis (ELA) routines to provide information to the system administrator on the causes of system problems. This also enables IBM service representatives to bring along needed replacement hardware components when a service call is placed, thus minimizing system repair time.

DASD Predictive Failure Analysis® (PFA) provides the ability to detect an imminent disk failure and report the findings through the AIX log. Then the disk can be replaced either immediately or at a later scheduled time, depending on the configuration of the DASD subsystem. With the RAID controller and the DASD hot-plug design, normal operation can usually continue in the presence of a failed disk and a concurrent repair often can be performed while the application continues uninterrupted.

Availability — Backup and Replication: The pSeries 660 Model 6H1 brings new levels of availability features and functions to the Enterprise Server. The optional N+1 power subsystem provides redundancy in case of power supply failure. Hot-plugged power supplies in the CEC and I/O drawers allow concurrent repair when redundant power is installed. Optional uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems are supported for this system.

The Model 6H1's CEC and I/O drawer cooling subsystems have N+1 fans, which can be replaced concurrently if the optional redundant power is installed.

Systems equipped with optional redundant power have independent line cords for each power supply in the CEC and I/O drawers.

Constant power monitoring hardware assists in detection of early loss of source power and notifies the operating system to effect an orderly shutdown. This same power monitoring hardware is designed to detect the loss of redundant bulk power supplies, regulators, fans, and blowers and report them to the operating system for logging in the system error log and for notification for deferred maintenance.

The Model 6H1's enhanced service processor is functional in standby mode and does not require a functional system for operation. This function provides enhanced RAS by not requiring AIX to be operational for interfacing with a remote system administrator or Electronic Service Agent™.

The Model 6H1 uses AIX online (concurrent) diagnostics with error log analysis and service aids, which allow administrators or IBM service representatives to diagnose many potential system malfunctions without interrupting end-user operation.

Auto-restart options, when enabled, are designed to reboot the system automatically following:

  • Unrecoverable software error
  • Software hang
  • Hardware failure
  • Environmentally induced (ac power) failure

These standard, high-availability features coupled with the optional High Availability Cluster Multi-Processing (HACMP) program provide unmatched availability in the UNIX® marketplace.

Chipkill™ Memory: The pSeries 660 Model 6H1 offers 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 multi-bit 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 6H1 provide the self-contained capability to correct real-time, multi-bit DRAM errors, including complete DRAM failures. This "RAID for memory" technology provides enhanced multi-bit error detection and correction that is transparent to the system.

Serviceability — Correcting Faults: The pSeries 660 Model 6H1 product is designed to be installed and maintained by a trained service representative.

Functions can be performed remotely such as:

  • Power-on and power-off
  • Reading the service processor error logs and POST error logs
  • Reading vital product data (VPD)
  • Accessing NVRAM

You can also enable console mirroring to monitor remote activity.

Microcode Discovery Service: Microcode Discovery Service is a service that allows you to determine if your pSeries 660 Model 6H1 is at the latest microcode level. Using a secure Internet connection and a Web browser, Microcode Discovery Service can capture the machine data and generate a real-time comparison report showing subsystems that may need to be updated.

To accomplish this, you must install the service tool onto your system. This tool, Inventory Scout, will run as a daemon on the server. The tool will create a file containing the current level of all microcode (adapters, devices, system, and support processor) levels in the system. This file will be used to compare the system level codes against the latest available levels on the IBM Web site. You will then receive a report notifying you of any new updates available along with a link from which the microcode can be downloaded.

This service allows you to maintain the Model 6H1 microcode at the latest levels to obtain peak performance. This service is available to customers through the Worldwide Support Centers.

Electronic Service Agent

Electronic Service Agent capability is shipped with every pSeries 660 Model 6H1 system. Electronic Service Agent requires a modem to dial for service.

The Electronic Service Agent:

  • Monitors and analyzes system errors, and if needed, can place a service call to IBM automatically
  • Reduces the effect of business disruptions due to unplanned system outages and failures
  • Performs problem analysis on a subset of hardware-related problems and, with customer authorization, reports automatically the results to IBM Service

Service Support: Hardware service requests go to IBM's remote support center for initial problem diagnosis. This approach gives you direct access to skilled specialists. These specialists can either solve the problem over the phone or help get it resolved as quickly as possible. They are backed up by a highly-trained product engineering team to assist in problem identification and resolution.

Product Positioning

The pSeries 660 Model 6H1 consists of a rack-mounted CEC drawer containing the processors and memory connected to another rack-mounted drawer containing the media, hot-plug I/O slots, and optional boot bays. Both drawers have redundant power options and redundant cooling. The incorporation of hot-plug PCI I/O slots brings new and increased levels of availability for this system. The need to power down and reboot when adding or replacing most PCI adapters is eliminated, thus reducing time delays while keeping network and application processing up and running. The Model 6H1 system can accommodate 1 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 6H1 is targeted at the key commercial processing segments of e-business, ERP, SCM, and Business Intelligence. In each segment, the Model 6H1 can meet critical requirements. For example:

  • In ERP, the Model 6H1 is an excellent application server with its powerful processors, memory capacity, and optional data storage capability.
  • In e-business, the Model 6H1 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.

The Model 6H1's rack-mounted drawer configuration offers flexibility regarding the number of CEC and I/O drawers that can be mounted in the rack, providing more compute and I/O power per square foot of valuable floor space. The Model 6H1 CEC and I/O drawers each require 5U (EIA Units) of rack space. Thus, a Model 6H1 configuration requires only 10U of rack space. This configuration, which consists of one CEC drawer and one I/O drawer, provides 14 available hot-plug PCI slots with up to six processors and 32 GB of memory.

External disk storage is required for the Model 6H1 as data storage internal to the drawers is not provided; however, optional boot bays are available in the primary I/O drawer. (The internal boot disk option requires the space of 2 PCI slots, leaving 12 available.) Memory in the CEC drawer can expand up to 32 GB, providing ample operating performance for demanding applications.

Other reliability functions help to make the Model 6H1 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, convenience, and safety 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 by guiding him through the process, helping to ensure success. In addition, an HACMP packaged solution with dual Model 6H1 systems will be offered to provide industry-leading high availability.

The Model 6H1 performs its role as the entry, rack-based platform of the pSeries family of SMP servers by complementing the deskside pSeries 620 Model 6F1, the mid-sized rack-based 7017-M80, and the pSeries 680 Model S85 in this broad server lineup.

As a member of the pSeries family, the pSeries 660 Model 6H1 will continue to meet your ever growing needs for more performance, scalability, and availability.
