Description

CSM V1.4 is designed to provide simple, low-cost management of distributed and clustered pSeries and xSeries servers. For organizations with both Linux and AIX applications, a single AIX 5L V5.2 or V5.3 management console can provide management services to AIX 5L and Linux clients in distributed and clustered configurations. CSM is also a key element of the Cluster 1600 and Cluster 1350, platforms that are ideal for workload consolidation or for achieving high degrees of scalability and performance for applications that take advantage of clustered systems architectures. Primary examples are computational modeling in high-performance computing or multi-terabyte data warehouses in large corporations.

The IBM CSM licensed products include:

  • CSM for Linux on POWER
  • CSM for Linux on e325 and xSeries
  • CSM for AIX 5L

All product offerings have enhancements in addition to JS20 hardware support and PSSP transition utilities, which are available as a new release, CSM V1.4.

New with CSM V1.4 in all three product offerings:

  • Optional CSM High Availability Management Server (HA MS) feature designed to allow automated failover of the CSM management server to a backup management server. This is a separately priced feature. CSM HA MS functionality is similar to that of PSSP HACWS on AIX 5L.
  • Ability to copy files across nodes or node groups in the cluster.
  • Support for representing additional parts of the cluster as non-node devices in the cluster, and allowing the CSM management server to be able to show status of these non-node devices as well as to power on/off the devices if there is remote power capability.
  • Sample scripts for setting up NTP, automounter, and network tuning configurations (CSM V1.4 on AIX, only) to help improve cluster ease of use and site customization.
  • Additional security options for remote commands.
  • Usability enhancements on install commands designed to improve feedback and configurable time out for a node installation, and increase flexibility of install options.

Specific product enhancements:

  • CSM for Linux on POWER:
    • Support for new POWER5 servers.
    • Support on pSeries servers and BladeCenter JS20 running SUSE SLES 8 and Red Hat AS 3.0.
    • A remote console for the JS20 helps provide ease of administration and RAS.
    • Cluster scaling on each POWER4 HMC is up to 32 physical systems and 64 operating system images*, and on each POWER5 HMC is up to 16 physical systems and 64 operating system images.
    • Greater install flexibility with ability to install over any Ethernet interface.
  • CSM for Linux on e325 and xSeries:
    • Support for up to 1024 nodes on xSeries, fulfilling larger enterprise opportunities, situations, and requirements
    • Support for Red Hat EL 3.0
    • A remote console for the BladeCenter JS20/HS20 to provide ease of administration and RAS
    • Greater install flexibility with ability to install over any Ethernet interface
  • CSM for AIX 5L:
    • Support for new POWER5 servers and AIX 5L V5.3.
    • Cluster scaling on each POWER4 HMC is up to 32 physical systems and 64 operating system images*, and on each POWER5 HMC is up to 16 physical systems and 64 operating system images.
    • Utilities and documentation to assist you in moving your IBM PSSP clusters to CSM for AIX 5L. This set of tools and documentation can be used to analyze, plan, and accomplish your transition to CSM. The collection consists of the following:
      • PSSP to CSM Transition Guide — This manual provides complete information on the utilities, their use, supported hardware, the transition planning process, and example transition scenarios.
      • PSSP Analysis utilities — These utilities run on the PSSP Control Work Station (CWS) and produce detailed reports of the PSSP configuration. These reports can be used in the transition planning process.
      • PSSP Configuration recording utility — This utility runs on the PSSP CWS and nodes, and records a subset of the PSSP cluster configuration into CSM-compatible stanza files. These stanza files, which minimize the amount of time needed to set up CSM, can be used in the CSM configuration process.
      • PSSP Removal utilities — These two utilities (one for the PSSP CWS and one for the PSSP nodes) remove PSSP by uninstalling the file sets and removing configuration settings introduced while installing PSSP.

      Note: These utilities do not require CSM licensing.

On all platforms, the new optional CSM HA MS is designed to prevent the management server from being a single point of failure in the CSM cluster. CSM HA MS uses a shared disk to store the CSM management server's data and requires a backup management server with a similar configuration to the primary management server. CSM HA MS is designed to automate failover in response to failure conditions. Failover can also be triggered by the administrator in order to create maintenance windows.

Setting up CSM HA MS can be done at any time during the life of the cluster. While CSM HA MS is expected to only failover CSM management server functionality, you can define pre- and post-scripts to customize the failover. This can allow you to failover other subsystems or data as needed.

Product positioning

CSM for AIX 5L and Linux offers a way to manage a collection of AIX or Linux servers (nodes) from a single-point-of-control.

Why should you use CSM?

  • Manageability: Help reduce management costs
  • Consolidate workloads
  • Help reduce complexity
  • Help improve asset utilization
  • Help lower total cost of ownership
  • For business intelligence (BI) clusters greater than one node

Functions include automated setup, hardware control, monitoring, and configuration file management. Administrators can manage individual nodes, run commands across nodes or groups of nodes, monitor system resources, and run automated responses to events. CSM is designed to exploit the advanced hardware management features of the servers in the Cluster 1600 or Cluster 1350, or a cluster of xSeries servers.

CSM includes technology derived from IBM Parallel System Support Programs (PSSP) for AIX and is positioned as a replacement offering to PSSP. It is aimed at customers who want robust cluster systems management on an AIX 5L or open, Intel™-based server platform. CSM and the IBM Cluster 1600 or Cluster 1350 are ideal for high-performance and commercial computing workloads, including applications in scientific and technical computing, Life Sciences, and e-business infrastructure (for example, Web serving and collaboration/e-mail).

CSM delivers a robust, scalable management platform to help make administration easier. It may help reduce life cycle costs. Customers can manage their AIX 5L or Linux servers from a central location, rather than having to manage each system individually.

Customers can scale their systems incrementally as workload demand increases, without increasing the management complexity.

Customers may be able to benefit from IBM's established leadership in supercomputing systems because the technology and experienced skills from the SP™ and AIX platforms are being leveraged on Linux. Customers may be more willing to adopt Linux in a production environment when it is backed by superior management software.

CSM HA MS is positioned for the customer who needs a highly available management server. CSM HA MS is designed to remove the management server as a single point of failure from the cluster.

System Program Order (SPO) (5692-A5L): A 5692-A5L SPO is mandatory for shipments of program distribution and publications. The individual licensed program orders (for example, 5765-F67) are for registration and billing purposes only. No shipment occurs under these orders.

To receive shipment of machine-readable materials stacked on a single CD-ROM requires an SPO (5692-A5L). Billing for the media type selected is generated under the SPO. To prevent additional billing expenses, place only one SPO order per machine.

Select one of the following (5692-A5L) feature numbers for the licensed program hardcopy entitled publications, along with feature number 9001 for asset registration to be shipped on a given date.

Variable charges: The applicable processor-based OTC will be based on the group of the designated machine on which the program is licensed for use. If the program is designated to a processor in a group for which no charge is listed above, the charge of the next higher group listed applies. For movement to a machine in a higher group, an upgrade charge equal to the difference in the then-current charges between the two groups will apply. For movement to a machine in a lower group, there will be no adjustment or refund of charges paid.
