Capacity on Demand

The Capacity on Demand (CoD) suite of offerings provides permanent nondisruptive growth as well as temporary additional capacity for short term processing needs.

Available for a fee, CoD allows additional processors and memory to be brought on line as they are needed to meet increasing workload demands. If the system is configured for dynamic LPAR, this can be accomplished without impacting operations and avoiding costly downtime.

These features have significant value for users who want to upgrade without disruption, enhance their system RAS (reliability, availability, serviceability) characteristics, or simply grow with a finer level of granularity. The CoD features allow a system to be manufactured (or upgraded) with inactive processors and memory.

The hardware is delivered with these features built in, ready to be activated when needed. It can turned on by ordering processor or memory activation features. An activation code entered at the HMC enables the resource either permanently or temporarily, depending on which activation feature is ordered.

Types of CoD Activations

Permanent CUoD for Processors and Permanent CUoD for Memory are activations that permanently enable inactive processors or memory for future use.

On/Off CoD enables users to temporarily activate processors and memory. Processors and memory may be activated and turned off an unlimited number of times whenever the client desires additional processing resources. This offering provides a system administrator an interface at the HMC to manage the activation and deactivation of resources. A monitor resides on the server and logs the usage activity. Clients 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.

Reserve CoD represents an "autonomic" way to activate temporary capacity. Reserve CoD enables the user to place a quantity of inactive processors into the server's Shared Processor Pool, which then become available to the pool's resource manager. When the server recognizes the number of base (purchased/active) processors assigned across uncapped partitions have been 100% utilized, and at least 10% of an additional processor is needed, then a processor day (good for a 24-hour period) is charged against the Reserve CoD account balance. Another processor day will be charged for each additional processor put into use based on the 10% utilization rule. After a 24-hour period elapses, and there is no longer a need for the additional performance, no processor days will be charged until the next performance spike.

Trial Capacity on Demand (Trial CoD) is a function delivered with all pSeries servers having inactive CoD processors or memory.

Servers with inactive CoD processors or memory will be capable of using a one-time, no-cost activation for a maximum period of 30 consecutive days. This enhancement allows for benchmarking of CoD resources or can be used to provide immediate access to inactive resources while the purchase of permanent or temporary activations is pending.

Accessibility by people with disabilities

IBM eServer p5 570 is capable as of August 31, 2004, when used in accordance with IBM's associated documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it.

IBM Tivoli® Security

Overview

Tivoli security-ready clients and agents are planned to be pre-installed on eServer POWER5™ servers running AIX® 5L V5.2 beginning in August 2004. Pre-installed Tivoli security-ready clients and agents for POWER4+™ and POWER4™ pSeries® servers running AIX 5L V5.2 also are planned to be available beginning in August 2004. IBM intends to pre-install security-ready clients and agents on eServer® and pSeries POWER™ servers that support AIX 5L V5.3 in the future.

The pre-installed security clients and agents software, when coupled with optional and extra cost server-based IBM Tivoli security management solution offerings, give eServer and pSeries customers security capabilities to help address a fundamental and heightened customer need for more secure on demand systems.

Tivoli security (identity) management solutions offer critical layers of additional defense beyond the traditional perimeter defense provided by firewalls: antivirus software, intrusion detection software, a security control layer, and a security policy compliance layer.

The Tivoli control layer determines which server users can access and what users may view and do. The Tivoli security compliance layer helps to ensure that customers are in, and remain in, compliance with security policies while helping assess security risks and initiating responses to security events.

Highlights IBM Tivoli security-ready clients/agents: Now every eServer pSeries POWER5, POWER4+, and POWER4 server with AIX 5L V5.2 is available with pre-installed Tivoli security-ready client and agent software.

  • Client for IBM Tivoli Access Manager for Operating System AIX
  • Agent for IBM Tivoli Identity Manager
  • Agent for IBM Tivoli Risk Manager
  • Client for IBM Tivoli Security Compliance Manager

To use each Tivoli security-ready client or agent, acquisition of the following corresponding server-based Tivoli security management product offering is required.

  • IBM Tivoli Access Manager for Operating System AIX
  • IBM Tivoli Identity Manager
  • IBM Tivoli Risk Manager
  • IBM Tivoli Security Compliance Manager

When pre-installed, the security-ready clients/agents help to simplify the implementation and enablement of Tivoli security management solutions. The solutions enable a consistent enforcement of security management policies across eServer, pSeries, and AIX 5L as well as across heterogeneous server environments running UNIX®, Linux™, and Microsoft™ Windows™ operating systems.

Optional IBM Tivoli Security Management Offerings for pSeries AIX 5L: Tivoli security-ready clients and agents for eServer and pSeries AIX 5L servers provide the means for Tivoli security management software running on an eServer or a pSeries AIX 5L server to provide and manage two different layers of security (a control layer or a security policy compliance layer) for each connected and enabled server client. One Tivoli security management server can manage up to thousands of eServer or pSeries AIX 5L server clients. Security management capabilities include:

  • Secure and manage the pSeries AIX 5L Server: IBM Tivoli Access Manager for Operating System AIX is optional, server-based enablement software that provides multiple eServer or pSeries AIX 5L server clients with IBM mainframe-class security. Access Manager can lock down and harden the AIX 5L operating system at the root level to help secure applications and protect data, meet customer security audit requirements, and reduce security administration costs.
  • Setup and manage the users: IBM Tivoli Identity Manager is optional, server-based enablement software that automates the creation and management of multiple user accounts. Identity Manager helps to significantly shorten the time for provisioning users from weeks to minutes and automatically discovers invalid user accounts.
  • Manage security operations: IBM Tivoli Risk Manager is optional, server-based enablement software that centrally monitors, reports and manages security events. Risk Manager helps to radically improve the administration of the whole security management environment.
  • Audit security policies for compliance: IBM Tivoli Security Compliance Manager is optional, server-based enablement software that checks the server system, middleware, and applications for vulnerability and adherence to customer security policies. Security Compliance Manager determines violations against security policies provided by IBM or modified or written by the customer.

Complementary (Security) Offering IBM Tivoli Directory Server

  • Store Users and Their Identities: IBM Tivoli Directory Server is server-based enablement software. Directory Server is foundation service software for building security-rich and standards-compliant identity infrastructure solutions. It provides a robust and lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP) and offers a choice of simple user ID and password authentication or robust digital certificate-based authentication. Directory Server is provided as a part of the AIX 5L V5.2 Expansion Pack.

Customer value: Tivoli security management solutions for pSeries AIX 5L can significantly help meet the heightened and growing customer need for a more secure on demand IT and server operating environment.

Tivoli security-ready client and agent software provides customer value when pre-installed. Pre-installation with AIX 5L helps save installation planning and implementation time when the clients/agents are security enabled by Tivoli security management (server) offerings.

Significant additional customer value is delivered when the Tivoli security-ready clients/agents are connected to and enabled by Tivoli security management (server) software:

  • Helps protect and optimize IT resources by controlling who has access to what
  • Helps reduce the cost of security administration and support
  • Helps manage complexity with a single user sign-on and unified user experience
  • Helps validate compliance against security policies and audits requirements

Limitations

Processors

  • A p5 570 system can have from 1 to 4 system drawers. Each drawer has two processor slots. A system with one drawer may have one or two processor cards installed. A system with 2, 3, or 4 drawers must have two processor cards in each drawer.
  • When two or more processor cards are installed, all cards must have the same processor frequency.
  • Each processor card has two processors and eight memory DIMM slots. The DIMM slots are different for DDR1 and DDR2 memory. All processor cards must support the same memory technology, either DDR1 or DDR2.
  • Systems configured with 1.5 GHz processors have a maximum of eight processors and two drawers.

Memory

  • The 9117-570 must contain a minimum of 2 GB of system memory. Memory is expandable up to a maximum of 512 GB with DDR1 DIMMs, or a maximum of 256 GB with DDR2 DIMMs.
  • Memory is installed in groups of four DIMMs mounted on the processor cards. Each processor card has 8 DIMM slots.
  • DDR1 memory is supported on 1.5 GHz processor cards (#7834), 1.65 GHz processor cards (#7830), and 1.9 GHz processor cards (#7832). DDR2 memory is supported only on 1.9 GHz processor cards (#7833). All DIMMs in a 570 system must use the same memory technology, either DDR1 or DDR2.
  • Each processor card must have at least 2 GB of memory installed.
  • It is recommended that each processor card have an equal amount of memory installed. Balancing memory across the installed processor cards allows memory accesses in a coordinated parallel manner and can be utilized to provide optimal performance.
  • 8 GB DIMMS cannot be installed on the same processor card with smaller capacity DIMMS. This rule applies to the #4492 and #7935 memory features.
  • Plans for future memory upgrades should be taken into account to obtain optimal performance without limiting future memory expansion.

Power

  • Two power supplies must be ordered to provide redundancy for enhanced system availability.

Racks

  • The model 570 consists of 1 to 4 system drawers. Each drawer occupies 4U of vertical rack space. The p5-570 is designed to be installed in a 7014-T00 or 7014-T42 rack. An existing T00 or T42 rack can be used for model 570 if sufficient space and power are available. Model 570 is not supported in the withdrawn 7015-R00 and 7014-S00 racks.
  • For p5-570 configurations with 2, 3, or 4 drawers, all drawers must be installed together in the same rack, in a continuous space of 8U, 12U, or 16U within the rack.
  • When a p5 570 system is installed in an IBM 7014-T00 or 7014-T42 rack that has no front door, a Thin Profile Front Trim Kit must ordered for the rack. The front bezel on a model 570 drawer is too wide to be used with the previously announced rack trim kits (features #6107 and #6081). The required trim kit for the 7014-T00 rack is feature #6246. The required trim kit for the 7014-T42 rack is feature #6247.
  • The IBM 7014-T42 rack is constructed with a small flange at the bottom of EIA™ location 37. This requires special placement rules when a model 570 system is installed near the top of a 7014-T42 rack, to avoid interference with the front bezel or with the front flex cable, depending on the system configuration. No system drawer can be installed in EIA positions 34, 35, or 36. A two-drawer system cannot be installed above position 33. A three-drawer system cannot be installed above position 25. A four-drawer system cannot be installed above position 21. The position number refers to bottom of the lowest drawer.
  • The design of the p5 model 570 is optimized for use in an IBM 7014-T00 or T42 rack. Both the front cover and the processor flex cables occupy space on the front left side of an IBM 7014 rack that may not be available in typical non-IBM racks.

    The SMP cables are designed specifically to support seamless (4-way node) upgradability and future concurrent maintenance features of these POWER5 systems. The use of non-IBM racks may limit your ability to exploit these ease-of-use, upgradability, and serviceability enhancements in the future.

I/O drawers

  • Model 570 systems can be attached to 7311-D10, 7311-D11, or 7311-D20 I/O drawers, using the standard and optional RIO-2 ports.
  • The maximum number of attached RIO-2 I/O drawers depends on the number of system drawers, as follows:
    • One-drawer systems support up to 8 I/O drawers
    • Two-drawer systems support up to 12 I/O drawers
    • Three-drawer systems support up to 16 I/O drawers
    • Four-drawer systems support up to 20 I/O drawers
  • When a 7311-D10 or 7311-D20 I/O drawer is attached to a model 570 system, the I/O drawer must be configured with a RIO-2 Remote I/O adapter. The supported RIO-2 adapter for 7311-D10 is feature #6431. The supported RIO-2 adapter for 7311-D20 is feature #6417. The previous RIO adapters, #6414 and #6413, cannot be used for attachment to a model 570 system.
  • When a 7311-D10 or a 7311-D20 I/O drawer is attached to a model 570 system, some PCI adapters are not supported. The following 7311-D10 and/or 7311-D20 features must not be installed in an I/O drawer if it is attached to a model 570 system. If they are present in a previously configured I/O drawer, they must be removed prior to attachment to a p5 570.
    • IBM Short-wave Serial HIPPI PCI Adapter for RS/6000® (#2732)
    • IBM Long-wave Serial HIPPI PCI Adapter for RS/6000 (#2733)
    • S/390® ESCON® Channel PCI Adapter (#2751)
    • IBM ARTIC960RxD Quad Digital Trunk PCI Adapter (#6310)
    • SP™ Switch2 PCI-X Attachment Adapter (#8398)

I/O drawer attachment

  • It is recommended that any attached I/O drawers be located in the same rack as the p5-570 server for ease of service, but they can be installed in separate racks, if desired.
  • I/O drawers are connected to the p5-570 drawer via the following cables:
    • RIO cables for data transfer
    • Power control cables
  • RIO cable connections are always made in loops to help protect against a single point-of-failure resulting from an open, missing, or disconnected cable. Model 570 systems with non-looped configurations could experience degraded performance and serviceability. If a non-loop connection is detected, a problem is reported.
  • Each p5-570 system drawer has two integrated RIO-2 ports, which support a single RIO loop. If a second RIO loop is required, two additional RIO-2 ports can be configured by ordering the #1800 RIO-2 adapter.
  • When the #1800 RIO-2 adapter is installed in a system drawer, no adapter cards can be installed in PCI-X slot #6. The #1800 RIO-2 adapter is supported only in system drawers that have two processor cards.
  • Up to eight RIO loops are available, each supporting up to four I/O drawers and up to a maximum of twenty I/O drawers per system. A minimum of two RIO cables are required to attach the first I/O drawer on each RIO loop. A third drawer-to-drawer RIO cable is required to complete the loop when an additional I/O drawer is attached to the loop. RIO cables are available in various lengths to attach I/O drawers within a single rack or across multiple racks, if desired.
    • #3146 = 1.2 meters
    • #3147 = 3.5 meters
    • #3148 = 10 meters
    • #3156 = 1.75 meters
    • #3168 = 2.5 meters
  • Power control for the I/O drawers is provided via one loop per drawer. The number of power control (SPCN) cables required is equal to one plus the number of I/O drawers attached to the system drawer. A minimum of two power control cables (#6006 = 3 meters, #6029 = 30 meters) are required for attachment of the first I/O drawer. Each additional I/O drawer requires one additional power control cable to complete the loop attachment.

Integrated I/O ports

  • Each system has only two HMC ports, regardless of the number of system drawers. For systems configured with more than one system drawer, the HMC ports are in the same drawer as the Service Processor (#7881).
  • Although each system drawer is equipped with two integrated serial port external connectors, only two serial ports are activated in a multidrawer configuration. Integrated serial ports are activated in the drawer that has the Service Processor (#7881) installed. Integrated serial ports in other system drawers are not functional.
  • Integrated serial ports are not supported when the HMC ports are connected to a Hardware Management Console. Either the HMC ports or the integrated serial ports can be used, but not both.
  • The integrated serial ports are supported only for modem and async terminal connections. Any other applications using serial ports require a separate serial port adapter to be installed in a PCI slot. The integrated serial ports do not support HACMP™ configurations.

Disks, media, and boot devices

  • Boot is supported via SCSI adapters, or from a network via LAN adapters.
  • The minimum configuration requires at least one disk drive having a capacity of 36.4 GB or greater.
  • Each system drawer can support up to two media devices when the optional #7869 media backplane is ordered. Any combination of DVD-ROM and DVD-RAM drives can be installed, up to eight media devices in a four-drawer system.

PCI slots and adapters

  • Each p5-570 system drawer has six PCI-X slots. All slots operate at 3.3 volts. There are five full-length 64-bit slots and one short 64-bit slot.
  • The p5-570 PCI slot population rules are complex. The following PCI slot and adapter limitations are provided for general guidance. Extensive configuration rules and checking procedures are incorporated into the ECFGRS6000 configurator to help ensure valid system configurations. Configurations generated without utilizing the ECFGPWR 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 to assist with connectivity and functional assurance.
  • When the model 570 is attached to one or more I/O drawers, additional rules apply for some PCI adapters regarding the maximum supported adapter quantities for the combined system. For adapters not shown in the list below, the combined maximum quantity is determined by the maximum quantities for each attached I/O drawer. The adapters in the following list are limited to the combined maximum quantity shown.

8-Port Asynchronous Adapter EIA-232/RS-422, PCI bus (2943) 42
128-Port Asynchronous Controller, PCI bus (2944)           42
PCI Universal Differential Ultra SCSI Adapter (6204)       42
POWER GXT135P Graphics Accelerator w/Digital Support (2849) 8
IBM Token-Ring PCI Adapter (4959)                          20
IBM e-business Cryptographic Accelerator (4960)            32

Hot-plug options

  • The following options are hot-plug capable:
    • System power supplies
    • Disk drives
    • Most PCI adapters
    • Service processors
    • Processor power regulators
  • Hot-plug procedures are contained in the eServer p5 model 570 Installation Guide .
  • Any PCI adapter supporting the system boot device or system console is not hot-plugged.
  • The following adapters are not hot-plug capable:
    • POWER GXT135P Graphics Accelerator with Digital Support (#2849)
    • 2-Port Multiprotocol PCI Adapter (#2962)

Logical Partitioning (LPAR)

  • Dynamic LPAR allows up to one partition per processor.
  • Up to ten partitions per processor are supported when Advanced POWER Virtualization (#7942) is ordered. This function requires AIX 5L V5.3 or SUSE SLES 9 for POWER.
  • A Hardware Management Console is required for all LPAR configurations.
  • For Linux partitions, a DVD-ROM or DVD-RAM and a Media Enclosure and Backplane (#7869) are required.

Model conversion

  • Customers who own an IBM pSeries 650 (7038-6M2) may convert their system to an IBM eServer p5 570 system. System hardware for the new model will consist of one or more drawers to replace the old system chassis. Supported features from the old model will be transferred to the new system. The same configuration rules apply to model conversions and to new system orders.
  • Model conversions allow any valid number of processors in the new model, regardless of the number of processors in the old model. The valid processor quantities are 2, 4, 8, 12, and 16.
  • Any supported memory and disk drive features that are transferred from the old system can be counted toward the requirements for processor activations at no additional charge, using the same Value Pak rules that apply to new system orders.
