AIX 5L for POWER V5.1 with the 5100-01 Recommended Maintenance package (APAR IY21957), or later
IBM is delivering the most technologically advanced line of servers in the industry. Each of the servers in the family provide outstanding performance and scalability resulting in industry-leading performance and price/performance across a wide range of e-business and technical computing workloads.
Today's announcements further extend IBM's leadership with enhanced processors, self-managing, LPAR and configuration capabilities for its pSeries of UNIX systems.
The pSeries 690 will be able to attach to SP systems over time. The design of the Central Electronics Complex (CEC) is intended to eliminate the concept of unique nodes. Future SP implementations are intended to be configurations of clustered pSeries 690 servers. For the first time, SP CECs and base server designs will be indistinguishable. The combination of LPAR, common CEC hardware, platform-optimized I/O drawers, a common hardware console, common switch fabric, and attachment adapters will provide customers with new levels of flexibility and scalability not previously available in the market.
For additional information on SP and PSSP cluster configuration support on pSeries 690 servers, refer to Hardware Announcement 101-283 , dated October 4, 2001.
IBM anticipates that one or more Linux distributors will support 64-bit Linux running in an LPAR by first quarter 2002. The support will allow 32-bit applications to run in partitions with a maximum of four processors. For more information about Linux running on pSeries systems, consult:
The pSeries is the most powerful technologically advanced family of UNIX servers. pSeries meets a diverse set of needs scaling from small departmental and distributed systems to massively parallel supercomputers. Each pSeries features IBM's UNIX operating system AIX 5L, the most open UNIX with Linux Affinity.
The ultra-powerful pSeries 690 sets the standard for datacenter-class UNIX servers with mainframe-heritage LPAR and self-managing features.
The pSeries 690 is the first system to offer the POWER4 microprocessor. The POWER4 chip is the first ever dual processor SMP on a single piece of silicon. It owes its industry-leading performance to IBM's advanced SOI and copper fabrication technology. The balanced performance of the POWER4 chip makes it equally at home with mission-critical commercial or compute-intensive applications.
The system features include:
The pSeries 690 can be configured up to eight 7040-61D I/O drawers. The I/O drawers can contain up to 16 hot-swap capable disks structured into four 4-packs of 18.2 or 36.4 GB disks. This delivers up to 582 MB maximum per I/O drawer, with up to eight drawers and 4.65 terabytes of internal disk for the system.
The drawer contains two planars with 10 slots per planar, 20 slots/drawer, with a maximum of 160 slots per system. The slots are hot-pluggable to permit PCI adapters to be added or replaced without extending the I/O drawer, all while the system remains available to the customer.
For unmatched UNIX system performance and scalability, up to 16 POWER4 chips (32-way) can be added to the pSeries 690. To help customers consolidate UNIX and Linux workloads the system can be split into as many as 16 logical partitions.
Complementing the power of the pSeries 690 is extraordinary self-managing
capabilities. The system can detect faulty memory, processors, cache,
and PCI buses and dynamically take them offline. It even makes the
service call. All of this without requiring administrative action or
interrupting operations. Growth is easy with hot-swappable disk drive
and hot-plug PCI. For the ultimate in availability the systems can be
clustered together with High-Availability Cluster Multiprocessing (HACMP)
software, the leader in UNIX availability solutions.
Complexity is a way of life for businesses today. On average, companies must contend with five different architectures in their e-business infrastructure. The challenge customers face is how to manage all of these resources cost effectively while transforming their infrastructure. Compounding the problem is the projected shortfall of skills and the explosive growth of the Internet.
This may sound like a daunting task, but IBM is designing its IBM systems to be self-managing so customers can concentrate on their business needs. Project eLisa is IBM's blueprint for self-managing systems. The goal is to use technology to manage technology, creating an intelligent, self-managing IT infrastructure that minimizes complexity. This will enable you to manage environments hundreds of times more complex and more broadly distributed than exist today.
Project eLisa-based systems will allow you to grow your computing resources without increasing critical staff and costs to manage larger more complex computer networks.
This all-encompassing strategy addresses the self-management needs in four areas:
The 7040-61D I/O drawer provides PCI adapter slots and internal disk capabilities for use with pSeries servers such as the pSeries 690 (7040-681). The Model 61D is a 4U drawer that mounts in the 24-inch 7040-61R System Rack and connects to the system Central Electronics Complex via remote I/O cables.
Each Model 61D I/O drawer provides twenty blind-swap PCI slots and
sixteen hot-swap disk bays. Redundant power converters and power cabling
ensure high reliability and availability. It utilizes 350 V bulk power
supplied from the 7040-61R system rack.
The 7040-61R System Rack provides space for mounting system drawer components for pSeries servers such as the pSeries 690 Central Electronics Complex (7040-681) and the 7040-61D I/O drawers. The Model 61R is a 24-inch rack with 42U of rack space.
The 7040-61R utilizes a 350 V dc bulk power subsystem to provide power for the components within the rack. The bulk power subsystem incorporates redundant bulk power assemblies mounted in the front and rear sections of the top 8U of the rack.
If additional 24-inch rack space is required an optional expansion rack
feature is available for the Model 61R rack. The expansion rack
feature connects to the side of the primary rack to provide an additional
42U of rack space. The components in the expansion rack are powered from
the bulk power subsystem in the primary Model 61R rack.
RAS Features and Functions
Excellent quality and reliability features are the keys to all facets of pSeries products. The measures taken help ensure the products operate when required, perform reliably, efficiently handle infrequent failures in a nondisruptive fashion, and provide timely and competent repair to allow resumption of operations with minimal inconvenience.
Reliability begins with the development of architectures, where RAS innovations are of paramount importance. The reliability concept 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 is under continual evaluation. It culminates in service and support, where:
pSeries 690 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 690 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 undergo the highest level of reliability testing within IBM. 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 to ensure highest product quality level.
Extensive error detecting and checking circuitry is included to help ensure that infrequent component failures are recognized and corrected automatically, and properly reported for isolation and repair. This helps preserve the integrity of data stored and transported in the system. To support a diagnostic technique called "run time first failure data capture," errors detected by the CEC error checking circuitry are automatically captured and analyzed by the service processor at the time of error. The system is designed to identify and log the appropriate replacement part or parts without reproducing the error condition. This can significantly reduce the repeat failure and repair scenarios associated with error recreate strategies by providing the correct isolation at the time of the failure. Reduced outages and quicker repair time can result in higher system reliability and better overall availability.
Hardware and software failures are recorded in the AIX log facility and
analyzed by error log analysis (ELA) routines to provide warning to the
system administrator on the causes of system problems. On pSeries 690
systems, all service action requests are forwarded from the operating
system partitions to a Service Focal Point (SFP) application running on
the Hardware Management Console (HMC). The service focal point
application analyzes the potentially duplicate reported failures from the
various logical partitions, attempts to determine the root cause of the
fault, and upon identifying the cause, initiates call-home requests to
IBM support via the HMC modem and the Service Agent application program.
This enables IBM service representatives to have replacement hardware
components available when a service call is placed, minimizing system
Availability Backup and Replication
Power and Cooling Subsystem: The pSeries 690 brings new a level of availability features and functions to the Enterprise Server. Within the CEC Rack, the N+1 power and cooling subsystem can provide complete redundancy in case of failures in the bulk or regulated power supplies, the power controllers and the cooling units. Concurrent repair is supported on all of the power and cooling components.
The pSeries 690 also features redundant Internal Battery Features (IBF) to hold the system up during brown-out conditions. For full power loss protection, the pSeries 690 supports optional uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems in addition to, or in place of, the IBF features.
In the I/O drawers, N+1 power and cooling is provided with the capability for concurrent repair of the power components and deferred repair of the cooling units.
Constant power monitoring hardware assists in detection of early loss of source power, and is designed to notify the operating system to effect an orderly shutdown. This same power monitoring hardware can detect the loss of redundant bulk power supplies, regulators, fans, and blowers and report them to the operating system for entry in the system error log and for maintenance notification.
CEC Subsystem: RAS features such as ECC on the L1 data cache and L2 data and directory caches can provide dynamic detection and correction of hard or soft array cell failures. Dynamic deallocation functions include:
Building on the robust features of the processor complex, the pSeries 690 system has enhanced error detection and prevention capabilities. These processor RAS features are called Dynamic Processor Deallocation and Persistent Processor Deallocation. Predictive Failure Analysis® is performed on recoverable processor errors during run-time. If a processor exceeds a threshold of recoverable errors such as on L2 cache accesses, the system is designed to log the event marked and deconfigure the processor from the system while the operating system continues to run. This feature allows the processor to be repaired on a deferred basis while helping to prevent an unscheduled system outage.
Persistent Processor Deallocation is designed to ensure that on subsequent reboots, the processor remains out of the system configuration until replaced. The standard memory card has single error-correct and double-error detect ECC circuitry to correct single-bit memory failures. The double-bit detection helps maintain data integrity by detecting and reporting multiple errors beyond what the ECC circuitry can correct. The memory chips are organized such that the failure of any specific memory module should only affect a single bit within an ECC word (bit scattering), allowing for error correction and continued operation in the presence of a complete chip failure (Chipkill recovery).
This memory card also utilizes memory scrubbing and thresholding to determine when spare memory modules within each bank of memory should be used to replace ones that have exceeded their threshold value (dynamic bit steering). Memory scrubbing is the process of reading the contents of memory during idle time and checking and correcting any single-bit errors that have accumulated. These single-bit failures could be either solid (technology failures) or soft failures (intermittent errors caused by noise or other cosmic effects). If an error is detected, the system is designed to correct it by passing the data through the ECC logic that corrects the fault and then writing the corrected contents back to its memory address location.
To prevent an uncorrectable memory error from causing a system outage, the service processor is designed to initiate a deferred maintenance request on memory cards that have used their spare bits and are experiencing additional correctable errors (memory predictive failure analysis).
DASD predictive failure analysis is designed to detect an imminent disk
failure and report the findings through the AIX log. Then the disk can
be replaced either immediately or scheduled at a later time, depending on
the configuration of the DASD subsystem. With the hot-plug disk design,
normal operation can continue in the presence of a failed disk and a
concurrent repair can be performed while the application continues
Availability UE Error Handling
Rare events in the processor, cache, and memory subsystems sometimes cause errors that exceed the error correction capability, and become Uncorrectable Errors (Ues). In other systems, these result in immediate checkstop with the offending component fully identified by the run-time diagnostics. The pSeries 690 system is designed not to cause a checkstop of the system. Instead, the corrupted data is specially marked until used by a processor, at which time a new synchronous machine check interrupt allows AIX to localize the effect to a single LPAR partition or a software process. This localizes a global system resource to affect only the partition utilizing the resource instead of checkstopping all system partitions. The affected partition can then be rebooted with significantly reduced boot time as compared to a full system reboot.
The interface from the processor to the I/O is through the Remote
I/O (RIO) link. This link uses a loop interconnect technology to provide
redundant paths to I/O drawers. There is a maximum of one I/O drawer on
each loop path, with a total of eight I/O drawers per system. RIO
availability features include CRC checking on the RIO bus with packet
retry on bus timeouts. In addition, if a RIO link fails, the hardware is
designed to automatically initiate a RIO bus reassignment to route the
data through the alternate path to its intended destination.
Availability PCI Bus Error Recovery
In the pSeries 690 system, the PCI slots in the I/O expansion drawers have specialized hardware and system firmware to support PCI Bus Parity Error Recovery. The specialized hardware function is designed to interact with the software device driver to help prevent PCI slot bus errors from causing a system machine check interrupt and subsequent reboot. Instead, errors are reported locally to the specific device driver controlling activity to the PCI device. Special firmware commands allow the device driver to reset the slot and retry the command, and perform other recovery operations without affecting the total system operation.
The purpose of this design point is also to provide better fault isolation for PCI adapters because each PCI adapter is in essence on its own PCI bus. If it has an interface error, it only affects this single adapter instead of all other adapters residing on the common PCI bus. Repair time is significantly reduced because isolation is to the specific adapter and PCI hot plug allows concurrent repair of that card without affecting other adapters.
The pSeries 690 uses AIX online (concurrent) diagnostics with error log analysis and service aids. Administrators or IBM service representatives can diagnose potential system malfunction without interrupting end-user operation.
Auto-restart options, when enabled, are designed to reboot the system automatically following:
Serviceability Correcting Faults
The pSeries 690 product is designed to be installed and maintained by a trained service representative.
Much of the repair of the pSeries 690 system can be done in either a
concurrent repair or a deferred repair scenario. Areas of the system
that support the concurrent repair scenario are PCI adapters, the entire
CEC power and cooling subsystem, the power subsystem on the I/O drawers,
and the integrated disk units. Deferred repair scenarios are supported
for the I/O drawer cooling units, RIO connections, power connections, and
predictive failure analyzed portions of the CEC including the processors
and memory subsystems when components have been varied off either
dynamically or at boot time.
Microcode Discovery Service
Microcode Discovery Service is a new service that allows you to determine if your pSeries 690 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 new service tool. This tool, Inventory Scout, runs as a daemon on the server. The tool creates a file containing the current level of all microcode (adapters, devices, system, and support processor) levels in the system. Use the file 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 will allow you to maintain the pSeries 690 microcode at the latest levels to obtain peak performance. This service will be available through the Worldwide Support Centers.
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.
These products are not impacted by euro currency.
The pSeries 690 will benefit customers in all segments. Traditional enterprise customers need more powerful systems as they integrate and extend their mission-critical operations, such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and Supply Chain Management (SCM) to include e-business and e-commerce, the subset of e-business concerned with buying and selling using the Internet. It provides the availability, reliability, scalability, and performance that address key unmet customer needs:
This UNIX high-end mainframe-like superserver is ideal for large enterprises with heavy duty commercial workloads that require highly reliable continuous operation for scientific and technical workloads that require significant number crunching and near linear scalability. It has the flexibility to perform as a high-end SMP with LPAR and HACMP high-availability software.
The benefits of the pSeries 690 vary by usage. For server consolidation, reducing the complexity of managing systems, reducing the physical footprint, increasing flexibility, improving availability, increasing security, and decreasing overhead costs can be realized by using system capabilities.
For the e-Infrastructure environments, quality of service to customers is enhanced, level of system security is increased, the time to deploy is decreased, the infrastructure is more easily managed, performance is maximized, and new technologies are integrated and utilized.
The pSeries 690 also provides an excellent approach to a wide range of high-performance computing applications because of its high-performance characteristics, quality operating environment, wide range of configurations, and ability to be clustered as workload demands increase. pSeries 690 systems configured with 4-way, HPC option processor Multi-Chip Modules (MCM features #5240 and #5250) may be especially attractive to customers in the high performance computing environment. This configuration provides twice the amount of Level 2 and Level 3 cache, as well as additional memory bandwidth per processor when compared to pSeries 690 systems configured with 8-way processor MCMs. The additional cache and memory bandwidth provided by this configuration may provide significantly higher performance per processor for certain engineering and technical environment applications.
The fast engine and increased performance, the ability to tackle larger problems, leadership technology and skill management provide the benefits in a high-performance computing environment.
In addition, for core applications, the pSeries 690 enables additional growth for database engines, high application availability, two-tier approaches using LPAR, and increased BI enablement due to performance and capacity improvements.
Statement of General Direction
IBM is planning an exciting new IBM Capacity Advantage offering for the pSeries 690 that allows for rapid dynamic activation of installed inactive processors and memory to existing partitions without disrupting applications. This feature allows for increased flexibility to respond to changing workload requirements. In the unlikely event of a failure, inactive resources can also be used to replace a failing component, again without disruption.
This offering is an extension of the current Capacity Advantage program available on IBM . It is planned for introduction on the pSeries 690 in second half 2002. pSeries 690 systems purchased before then can participate fully along with new systems.
IBM is also planning to enable you to dynamically redefine the resources that makeup a logical partition. This means that partitions can be changed while applications continue to run. No reboot of affected partitions will be required after this feature is installed. Processors, memory, and I/O can all be added or removed from active partitions without disruption to applications. This facility is planned for introduction on the pSeries 690 in second half 2002, and will be supported by an update to AIX and the system software.
All statements regarding IBM's future direction and intent are subject to change or withdrawal without notice, and represent goals and objectives only.
