System p5 550 and System p5 550Q Express Product Offering

Express Product Offerings are available only as initial order.

If you order a System p5 550 server with a two-way POWER5+ 1.9 GHz processor (#8312) or System p5 550Q server with a 4-way POWER5+ 1.5 GHz processor (#8313) Express Product Offering as defined here, you may qualify for a processor activation at no additional charge. The number of processors, total memory, quantity/size of disk, and presence of a media device are the only features that determine if a customer is entitled to a processor activation at no additional charge.

When you purchase an Express Product Offering, you will be entitled to a lower priced AIX 5L or Linux operating system license, or you may choose to purchase the system with no operating system. The lower priced AIX 5L or Linux operating system is processed via a feature number on AIX 5L and either Red Hat or SUSE LINUX. You may choose either the lower priced AIX 5L or Linux subscription but not both. If you choose AIX 5L for your lower priced operating system, you can also order Linux but will purchase your Linux subscription at full price versus the reduced price. The converse is true if you choose a Linux subscription as your lower priced operating system.

Systems with a lower priced AIX 5L offering will be referred to as the IBM System p5 Express, AIX 5L edition; and systems with a lower priced Linux operating system will be referred to as the IBM System p5 Express, OpenPower™ editions. In the case of Linux, only the fist subscription purchased is lower priced so, for example, additional licenses purchased for Red Hat to run in multiple partitions will be at full price.

You can make changes to the standard features as needed and still qualify for processor entitlements at no additional charge, and a discounted AIX or Linux operating system license. However, selection of total memory or DASD smaller than the totals defined as the minimums disqualifies the order as an Express Product Offering.

If any of the features in an Express Product Offering are changed, the Express Product Offering identification feature (#93XX) will be removed from the order, but you may still qualify for processor activations at no extra charge.

Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability (RAS)

Reliability, fault tolerance, and data integrity: The reliability of the System p5 550 and System p5 550Q systems starts with components, devices, and subsystems that are designed to be fault-tolerant. 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.

The System p5-550 and System-p5 550Q system L3 cache and system memory offers ECC (error checking and correcting) fault-tolerant features. ECC is designed to correct environmentally induced, single-bit, intermittent memory failures and single-bit hard failures. With ECC, the likelihood of memory failures will be substantially reduced. ECC also provides double-bit memory error detection that helps protect data integrity in the event of a double-bit memory failure. System memory also provides 4-bit packet error detection that helps to protect data integrity in the event of a DRAM chip failure. The system bus, I/O bus, and PCI buses are designed with parity error detection.

Disk mirroring and disk controller duplexing are also provided by the AIX operating system. Linux supports DASD mirroring (RAID 1). This is supported in software using the md driver. Some hardware RAID adapters supported under Linux support mirroring.

The Journaled File System maintains file system consistency and reduces the likelihood of data loss when the system is abnormally halted due to a power failure.

PCI extended error handling (EEH)1: In the past, PCI bus parity errors caused a global machine check interrupt, which eventually required a system reboot to continue. In the POWER5+ systems, new I/O drawer hardware, system firmware, and AIX interaction have been designed to allow transparent recovery of intermittent PCI bus parity errors and graceful transition to the I/O device available state in the case of a permanent parity error in the PCI bus. This mechanism is called PCI extended error handling (EEH). 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. Currently, Linux does not support the EEH behavior. In the event of a PCI error under Linux, the system will machine check and a reboot will be required to continue.

Indicates that this RAS function is not supported under Linux.

Memory error correction extensions: The standard memory has single-error-correct and double-error-detect ECC circuitry designed to correct single-bit memory failures. The double-bit detection is designed to help 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 only affects a single bit within an ECC word (bit scattering), thus allowing for error correction and continued operation in the presence of a complete chip failure (Chipkill™ recovery).

The memory also utilizes memory scrubbing and thresholding to determine when spare memory modules, within each bank of memory, if available, should be used to replace ones that have exceeded their threshold value (dynamic bit steering).

Redundancy for array self-healing: Although the most likely failure event in a processor is a soft single-bit error in one of its caches, other events can occur, and they need to be distinguished from one another. For the L1, L2, and L3 caches and their directories, hardware and firmware keep track of whether permanent errors are being corrected beyond a threshold. If exceeded, a deferred repair error log is created. Additional run-time availability actions, such as CPU vary off2 or L3 cache line delete, are also initiated.

L1 and L2 caches and L2 and L3 directories on the POWER5+ chip are manufactured with spare bits in their arrays that can be accessed via programmable steering logic to replace faulty bits in the respective arrays. This is analogous to the redundant bit steering employed in main storage as a mechanism that is designed to help avoid physical repair, and is also implemented in POWER5+ systems. The steering logic is activated during processor initialization and is initiated by the built-in system-test (BIST) at power-on time.

L3 cache redundancy is implemented at the cache line granularity level. Exceeding correctable error thresholds while running causes invocation of a dynamic L3 cache line delete function.

2
Indicates that this RAS function is only available for a Linux operating system running the 2.6 kernel.

Service Processor: The Service Processor that is standard on the System p5 systems provides the capability to diagnose, check the status of, and sense the operational conditions of a remote system.

The Service Processor runs on its own power boundary and does not require a system processor to be operational to perform its tasks.

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 (but only critical errors are supported under Linux), reset and boot features, and remote maintenance and diagnostic functions, including console mirroring.

The Service Processor can place calls to report surveillance failures, critical environmental faults, and critical processing faults when the system is not managed by an HMC running Service Focal Point.

Fault monitoring functions

  • BIST and POST (power-on self-test) check processor, L3 cache, memory, and associated hardware required for proper booting of the operating system, every time the system is powered on. If a noncritical error is detected or if the errors occur in the resources that can be removed from the system configuration, the booting process is designed to proceed to completion. The errors are logged in the system nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM).
  • Disk drive fault tracking can alert the system administrator of an impending disk failure before it impacts customer operation.
  • The AIX or Linux log (where hardware and software failures are recorded and analyzed by the Error Log Analysis [ELA] routine) warns the system administrator about the causes of system problems. The Service Processor event log also logs unrecoverable checkstop conditions and forwards them to the Service Focal Point if the system is HMC-attached. This also enables IBM service representatives to bring along probable replacement hardware components when a service call is placed, thus minimizing system repair time.

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 will perform a reset/reload if it detects the loss of the Service Processor. If the reset/reload doesn't correct the problem with the Service Processor, the Hypervisor will notify the operating system and the operating system can take appropriate action, including calling for service.

Environmental monitoring functions

  • Temperature monitoring increases the fan speed rotation when ambient temperature is above the normal operating range.
  • Temperature monitoring warns the system administrator of potential environmental-related problems (for example, air conditioning and air circulation around the system) so that appropriate corrective actions can be taken before a critical failure threshold is reached. It also performs an orderly system shutdown when the operating temperature exceeds the critical level.
  • Fan speed monitoring provides a warning and an orderly system shutdown when the speed is out of operational specification.
  • Voltage monitoring provides warning and an orderly system shutdown when the voltages are out of operational specification.

Error handling and reporting: In the unlikely event of system hardware or environmentally induced failure, the system run-time 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 rebooted either manually or automatically, the error will be reported to the AIX or Linux operating system. ELA can be used to display the failure cause and the physical location of the failing hardware.

With the integrated Service Processor, the system has the ability to automatically send out an alert via phone line to a pager or call for service in the event of a critical system failure. A hardware fault will also turn on the two Attention Indicators (one located on the front of the system unit and the other on the rear) to alert the user of an internal hardware problem. The indicator may also be turned on by the operator as a tool to allow system identification. For identification, the indicators will flash, whereas the indicator will be on solid when an error condition occurs.

Availability enhancement functions: The auto-restart (reboot) option, when enabled, can reboot the system automatically following an unrecoverable software error, software hang, hardware failure, or environmentally induced (ac power) failure.

Serviceability: The p5-550 and p5-550Q are designed for customer setup of the machines and for subsequent addition of most features (adapters/devices)1 For a fee, IBM Service can perform the installation.

  • The p5-550 and p5-550Q allow customers to replace service parts (customer replaceable unit). To do this, the p5-550 and p5-550Q have incorporated LEDs that will indicate the parts needing to be replaced.
  • These systems allow support personnel to remotely log into them to review error logs and perform remote maintenance. The p5-550 and p5-550Q Service Processor enables the analysis of a system that will not boot.
  • The diagnostics consist of both Stand-alone Diagnostics, which are loaded from the DVD-ROM drive, and Online Diagnostics.
  • Online Diagnostics1 when installed, are resident with AIX 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.
    • Service mode allows checking of system devices and features.
    • Concurrent mode allows the normal system functions to continue while selected resources are being checked.
    • Maintenance mode allows checking of most system resources.
  • For results of Service Processor tests, access the error log from the Service Processor menu.

Service Agent: The Service Agent is available at no additional charge. When installed on a System p5, the Service Agent can enhance IBM's ability to provide the system with maintenance service.

The Service Agent:

  • Monitors and analyzes system errors, and, if needed, can automatically place a service call to IBM without customer intervention
  • Can help reduce 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, can report automatically the results to IBM Service

Dynamic logical partitioning

The dynamic logical partitioning (LPAR) function provides enhanced resource management for the System p5 550 and System p5 550Q server. Dynamic LPAR allows available system resources to be quickly and easily configured across multiple logical partitions to meet the rapidly changing needs of your business.

Dynamic LPAR also allows you to add new system resources such as new hot-plug PCI adapters into your system's configuration without requiring a reboot. Without the Advanced POWER Virtualization feature (#7941), as many as four LPARs are supported in a 4-way p5-550 and as many as eight LPARs are supported in an 8-way p5-550Q. If the Advanced POWER Virtualization feature is installed in the system, up to 10 dynamic LPARs per processor (20 per 2-way processor card/40 per 4-way processor card) are supported in the stand-alone SMP server configuration on the p5-550 and p5-550Q. LPAR requires the use of a Hardware Management Console (HMC). The p5-550Q can have a maximum of 40 LPARs due to system limitations.

Dynamic LPAR is supported by the following levels of the AIX® and Linux operating systems:

  • AIX 5L™ for POWER V5.2, or later
  • SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 for POWER Systems, or later
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 4 for POWER, or later

An IBM 7310-CR2 Rack-Mounted HMC or 7310-C03 Desktop HMC is required to manage POWER5+™ processor-based servers implementing partitioning. Multiple partitions and multiple POWER5+ processor-based servers can be supported by an HMC, located locally or remotely attached to IBM System p5.

The HMC is not required for a partition to run, but is required for a p5-550 or p5-550Q system to create, define, and change the partition.

Advanced POWER Virtualization

Advanced POWER Virtualization (#7941) allows customers to create partitions in units of less than 1 CPU (sub-CPU LPARs) and allows the same system I/O to be virtually added to these partitions. The optional feature, available for a fee, also includes a software component that provides cross-partition workload management.

New in this release of Advanced POWER Virtualization is the Integrated Virtualization Manager (IVM). IVM is a browser-based system management interface that you can use to manage a single system without an HMC. Supported HMC-less systems that have the IBM Virtual I/O Server in a managed system can use IVM to create logical partitions on a single managed system, manage the virtual storage and virtual Ethernet on the managed system, and view service information related to the managed system. IVM is included at no additional charge as part of the optional Advanced POWER Virtualization (#7941).

Advanced POWER Virtualization combines three components:

  • Firmware feature to turn on Micro-Partitioning (#7941)
  • Software feature to activate the I/O Virtualization
  • Software feature providing partition load management

At initial order entry, selecting feature number 7941 will result in Micro-Partitioning to be enabled during manufacture and the enabling software media and publications to be shipped to the customer. When ordering feature number 7941 as an MES, an activation key will be posted on an IBM Web site, and the customer must retrieve it and install it on the system.

Other features of Advanced POWER Virtualization

  • If any processors in a system have the Virtualization feature, all active processors must have it.
  • Once the Virtualization feature is installed in a system, it cannot be removed.
  • Virtual Ethernet and Virtual Storage are part of Advanced POWER Virtualization.
  • Partition Load Manager provides automated CPU and memory resource management across AIX 5.2/5.3 logical partitions.

Advanced POWER Virtualization is supported by the following levels of the AIX and Linux operating systems:

  • AIX 5L for POWER V5.3, or later
  • SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 for POWER Systems, or later
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 4 for POWER, or later

IBM Electronic Services

IBM Global Services has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to put you on the road to higher systems availability. IBM Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that provides you with an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support on the IBM eServer. You should benefit from greater system availability due to faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. IBM Electronic Services is comprised of two separate, but complementary, elements: IBM Electronic Services news page and IBM Electronic Service Agent™.

IBM Electronic Services news page provides you with a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used by customers to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The IBM Electronic Service Agent is no-additional-charge software that resides on your IBM eServer system. It is designed to proactively monitor events and transmit system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, customer-defined timetable. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tracks system inventory, hardware error logs, and performance information. If the server is under a current IBM maintenance service agreement or within the IBM warranty period, the Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to provide proactive service that maintains higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent will be made available to IBM service support representatives when they are helping answer your questions or diagnosing problems.
