IBM System p5 560Q Express Product Offerings

If you order a System p5 560 server Express Product Offering as defined here, you may qualify for a processor activation at no extra 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 entitlement 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 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 reduced price 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™ edition. 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 reduced-price AIX or Linux operating system license. However, selection of total memory or DASD smaller than the total defined as the minimums disqualifies the order as an Express Product Offering.

Express Configurations: Express Configurations provide a convenient way to order any of several configurations designed to meet typical customer requirements. Special reduced pricing is available when a system order satisfies specific configuration requirements for memory, disk drives, and processors. When an Express Configuration is ordered, the configurator offers a choice of starting points that can be added onto. Customers can configure systems with one or two processors cards and four or eight processor activations. With the purchase of an Express Configuration, for each paid processor activation, the customer is entitled to one processor activation at no additional charge, if the following requirements are met:

  • The system must have at least two disk drives of at least 73.4 GB each.
  • There must be at least 2 GB of memory installed for each active processor.

If the system was initially ordered as an Express Configuration, the system can be expanded at a later time using Express Configuration pricing, when additional processors and activations along with the required memory are ordered on the same MES order. The upgraded p5-560Q configuration must satisfy the Express Configuration requirements for disk drives, memory, and processors. Activations of previously installed processors do not qualify for Express Configuration pricing.

Configurator starting points: The complete order must include the features identified in the minimum configuration plus the feature enhancements listed here.

    • IDE DVD-ROM (1 x #1994

Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability (RAS)

Reliability, fault tolerance, and data integrity: The reliability of the System p5 560Q 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 product quality level.

The p5-560Q 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.

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: PCI bus parity errors have 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, the system will machine check and a reboot will be required to continue.

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).

Indicated that this RAS function is not supported under Linux.

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 exceeding correctable error thresholds while running causes invocation of a dynamic L3 cache line delete function (stop using bad cache).

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 and warns the system administrator about the causes of system problems. 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 a 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 p5-560Q is designed for IBM ITS installation of the machine. The subsequent addition of most features (adapters/devices) are designed for customer installation. For a fee, IBM Service can perform the installation of these customer-installable features.

  • The p5-560Q allows customers to replace some service parts (customer-replaceable unit). To do this, the p5-560Q has incorporated LEDs that will indicate the parts needing to be replaced.
  • The p5-560Q allows support personnel to remotely log into them to review error logs and perform remote maintenance. The p5-560Q service processor enables the analysis of a system that will not boot.
  • The diagnostics consist of 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 devices and adapters.
  • For results of Service Processor tests, access the error log from the Service Processor menu.

Note: Because the 9116-561 system has an optional DVD-ROM (#1994) and DVD-RAM (#1993), alternate methods for maintaining and servicing the system need to be available if the DVD-ROM or DVD-RAM is not ordered; an external Internet connection must be available to maintain or update system microcode to the latest required level.

Service Agent: The Service Agent is available at no additional charge. When installed on a System p5 server, 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 LPAR function provides enhanced resource management for the System p5 560Q. 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. As many as four LPARs are supported in a 4-way p5-560Q without the Advanced POWER™ Virtualization feature (#7304). If the feature is installed in the system, up to 10 dynamic LPARs per processor (40 per 4-way processor card) are supported in the stand-alone SMP server configuration on the p5-560Q.

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

    Note: Not all system features available on the AIX operating system are available on the Linux operating systems.

Advanced POWER Virtualization

Advanced POWER Virtualization (#7304) 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 as part of the optional Advanced POWER Virtualization (#7304).

Advanced POWER Virtualization combines three components:

  • Firmware feature to turn on Micro-Partitioning™ (#7304) technology
  • Software feature to activate the I/O Virtualization
  • Software feature providing partition load management

At initial order entry, selecting feature number 7304 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 7304 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

Express Configurations

Express Configurations provide a convenient way to order any of several configurations designed to meet typical customer requirements. Special reduced pricing is available when a system order satisfies specific configuration requirements for memory, disk drives, and processors. When an Express Configuration is ordered, the configurator offers a choice of starting points that can be added onto. Customers can configure systems with one, two, or four processors cards and four to 16 processor activations. With the purchase of an Express Configuration, for each paid processor activation the customer is entitled to one processor activation at no additional charge, if the following requirements are met:

  • The system must have at least two disk drives of at least 73.4 GB each.
  • There must be at least 2 GB of memory installed for each active processor.

If the system was initially ordered as an Express Configuration, the system can be expanded at a later time using Express Configuration pricing, when additional processors and activations along with the required memory are ordered on the same MES order. The upgraded p5-560Q configuration must satisfy the Express Configuration requirements for disk drives, memory, and processors. Activations of previously installed processors do not qualify for Express Configuration pricing.

Limitations

System

  • Integrated system ports are not supported when the HMC ports are connected to an HMC. Either the HMC ports or the integrated system ports can be used, but not both.
  • The integrated system ports are supported for modem and asynch terminal connections. Any other application using serial ports requires a serial port adapter to be installed in a PCI slot. The integrated system ports do not support HACMP™ configurations.

Processors

  • A p5-560Q system can have one or two system drawers. Each drawer has two processor slots. A system with one drawer may have one or two processor cards installed. A system with two drawers must have two processor cards in the second drawer.
  • When two or more processor cards are installed, all cards must have the same processor frequency.
  • Each processor card has four processor cores and eight memory DIMM slots. All processor cards support memory technology DDR2.

Memory

  • The 9116-561 must contain a minimum of 2 GB of system memory. Memory is expandable up to a maximum of 128 GB with DDR2 DIMMs.
  • Memory is purchased and installed in groups of four DIMMs mounted on the processor cards. Each processor card has eight DIMM slots.
  • Each processor card must have at least 2 GB of memory installed.
  • Each processor card must have at least four DIMMs 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
  • Plans for future memory upgrades should be taken into account when selecting the memory feature size on an initial order.

Power

  • Two power supplies must be installed in each system drawer to provide redundancy for enhanced system availability.
  • Systems with two drawers require three Processor Power Regulators per drawer.

Power Distribution Units: For systems installed in IBM 7014 racks, the following Power Distribution Unit (PDU) rules apply:

  • For withdrawn PDU feature numbers 9176, 9177, 7176, and 7177: Each pair of PDUs can power up to three p5-560Q server drawers (three drawers per two PDUs).
  • For withdrawn PDU features numbers 9178 and 7178: Each pair of PDUs can power up to six p5-560Q server drawers (two drawers per two PDUs).
  • For PDU feature numbers 9188 and 7188, when using power cord feature numbers 6654, 6655, 6656, 6657, or 6658: Each pair of PDUs can power up to three p5-560Q server drawers (three drawers per 2 PDUs).
  • For PDU features numbers 9188 and 7188, when using power cord 6489, 6491, 6492, or 6653: Each pair of PDUs can power up to six p5-560Q server drawers (six drawers per two PDUs).
  • Each server drawer has two power supplies, which must be connected to separate PDUs to provide full redundancy.
  • Server power cords should be evenly spread across the available PDU power outlets to distribute the current across multiple circuit breakers.

Racks

  • The model 560Q consists of one or two system drawers. Each drawer occupies 4U of vertical rack space. The p5-560Q is designed to be installed in a 7014-S25, T00, or T42 rack. An existing S25, T00, or T42 rack can be used for model 560Q if sufficient space and power are available. Model 560Q is not supported in the withdrawn 7015-R00 and 7014-S00 racks.
  • For p5-560Q configurations with two drawers, both drawers must be installed together in the same rack, in a continuous space of 8U, within the rack.
  • When a p5-560Q system is installed in an IBM 7014-T00 or 7014-T42 rack that has no front door, a Thin Profile Front Trim Kit must be ordered for the rack. The front bezel on a model 560Q drawer is too wide to be used with the previously announced rack trim kits (#6107 and #6081). The required trim kit for the 7014-T00 rack is feature number 6246. The required trim kit for the 7014-T42 rack is feature number 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 560Q system is installed near the top of a 7014-T42 rack to avoid interference with the front bezel. No system drawer can be installed in EIA positions 34, 35, or 36. A two-drawer system cannot be installed above position 29. (The position number refers to the bottom of the lowest drawer.)
  • The design of the System p5-560Q is optimized for use in an IBM 7014-S25, T00, or T42 rack. The front cover occupies space on the front left side of an IBM 7014 rack that may not be available in typical non-IBM racks.

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 higher.
  • Each system drawer can support up to two media devices when the optional Media Backplane (#7869) is ordered. Any combination of DVD-ROM and DVD-RAM drives can be installed, up to four media devices in a two-drawer system.

PCI slots and adapters

  • Each p5-560Q 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 p5-560Q PCI slot population rules are complex. 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.

Hot-plug options

  • The following options are hot-plug capable:
    • System power supplies
    • Disk drives
    • Most PCI adapters
    • Processor power regulators
  • 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 (#1980 and #2849)
    • 2-Port Multiprotocol PCI Adapter (#2962)

Logical partitioning (LPAR)

  • Dynamic LPAR allows up to one partition per processor.
  • Up to 10 partitions per processor are supported when Advanced POWER Virtualization (#7304) is ordered. This function requires AIX 5L V5.3, SUSE SLES 9 for POWER, or Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 4 for POWER.
  • For Linux partitions, a DVD-ROM or DVD-RAM and a Media Enclosure and Backplane (#7869) are required.
