Overview

The innovative System p™ 570 with POWER6™ dual-core processors is a 2- to 16-core SMP, rack-mounted server. The new POWER6 processors in this server are 64-bit, dual cores on a single chip module, with 32 MB of L3 cache, 8 MB of L2 cache, and 12 DDR2 memory DIMM slots. The new POWER6 processor is available at frequencies of 3.5 GHz, 4.2 GHz, and 4.7 GHz. The unique POWER6 DDR2 memory uses a new memory architecture to provide greater bandwidth and capacity. This enables operating at a higher data rate for large memory configurations. Each new POWER6 processor card can support up to 12 DDR2 DIMMs running at speeds up to 667 MHz. A full system can contain up to 768 GB of memory in a 16-core system. This new model server is available in 2-, 4-, 8-, 12-, and 16-core configurations.

This modular-built system uses one to four enclosures, each enclosure is four EIA units tall, and is housed in a 19-inch rack. Each of the four system enclosures has two processor sockets and can contain two powerful POWER6 dual-core processor card features. A POWER6 processor card (#5621) is available for customers upgrading from an System p5™ 570 who want to migrate their existing DDR2 memory features.

New in this model is a choice of 1 Gb or 10 Gb integrated host Ethernet adapters (HEA). These native ports can be selected at the time of initial order. The model MMA supports virtualization of these integrated Ethernet adapters.

Also available is the POWER™ GXT145 graphics accelerator (#5748), a low-priced 2D adapter that can be configured to operate in either 8-bit or 24-bit color modes. This adapter supports both analog and digital monitors. The adapter requires a PCI Express slot.

Capacity on Demand (CoD)

Several types of CoD are optionally available on the p570 server to help meet changing resource requirements in an on demand environment by using resources installed on the system but not activated:

  • Capacity Upgrade on Demand (CUoD) allows you to purchase additional permanent processor or memory capacity and dynamically activate them when needed.
  • Trial CoD offers a one-time, no-additional-charge 30-day trial that allows you to explore the uses of all inactive processor and memory capacity on your server and to benchmark the performance benefits of the additional resources. This function is delivered with all System p servers with inactive CoD processors or memory.
  • On/Off CoD enables processors or memory to be temporarily activated in full-day increments as needed. Charges are based on usage reporting collected monthly. Processors and memory may be activated and turned off an unlimited number of times, whenever you want additional processing resources. This offering provides a system administrator an interface at the HMC to manage the activation and deactivation of resources. A monitor that resides on the server logs the usage activity. You 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. Before using temporary capacity on your server, you must enable your server. To do this, order an enablement feature (MES only) and sign the required contracts. For more information regarding registration, enablement, and usage of On/Off CoD, visit

    http://www-912.ibm.com/supporthome.nsf/document/28640809

  • Utility CoD autonomically provides additional processor performance on a temporary basis within the shared processor pool. Utility CoD enables you 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 that the combined processor utilization within the shared pool exceeds 100% of the level of base (purchased/active) processors assigned across uncapped partitions, then a Utility CoD Processor Minute is charged and this level of performance is available for the next minute of use. If additional workload requires a higher level of performance, the system will automatically allow the additional Utility CoD processors to be used and the system automatically and continuously monitors and charges for the performance needed above the base (permanent) level. Registration and usage reporting for Utility CoD is made using a public Web site and payment is based on reported usage. This capability is planned to be available during third quarter 2007. Utility CoD requires Advanced POWER Virtualization (#7942) to be active and Utility CoD is only available on Model MMA of machine type 9117.
  • Permanent CUoD for Processors and Permanent CUoD for Memory are activations that permanently enable inactive processors or memory for future use.

Each system with CoD resources also allows a standard trial period of 30 days, which is limited to two processors and 4 GB of memory. The Standard Trial can be used, for example, to provide a performance increase needed while processing an order for a CoD activation.

Trial periods are made possible with activation codes that can be requested at

Note: An HMC console is required when using all forms of temporary CoD activations, including On/Off CoD, Utility CoD, and Trial CoD.

Model upgrades

System p5 570 systems with IBM POWER5™ or POWER5+™ processors can be upgraded to the System p 570 with POWER6 processors. IBM will install new CEC enclosures to replace the enclosures the customer currently has. The customer's current CEC enclosures will be returned to IBM in exchange for the financial considerations that are identified under the applicable feature conversions for each upgrade. Several of the parts in the customer's current system can be moved to the new system after it is installed.

  • 9117-570 systems with POWER5 processor feature numbers 7830, 7832, 7833, or 7834 can be upgraded to a 9117-MMA with processor feature number 5622.
  • 9117-570 systems with POWER5+ processor feature numbers 7782 or 8338 can be upgraded to a 9117-MMA with processor feature numbers 5621 or 5622.

The following features, if present on the current system, can be moved to the new system:

  • Operator Panel.
  • PCI adapters with cables: A maximum of two adapters internal to the model MMA per CEC enclosure. Remaining PCI adapters must be moved to attached remote I/O drawers or replaced with PCIe adapters available for the 9117-MMA. Recommended I/O drawers are the 7314-G30, 7311-D11, or the 7311-D20.
  • Line cords, keyboards, and displays.
  • Advanced POWER Virtualization (#7942).
  • SCSI DASD cannot be used in the MMA but can be used in a remote I/O drawer attached to the model MMA. Recommended I/O drawers are the 7031-D24, 7031-T24, or 7311-D20.
  • DDR2 memory, if upgrading to the feature number 5621 processor.
  • Power supplies, if upgrading to the feature number 5621 processor.

Upgrade considerations

The following should be considered when planning an upgrade from a 9117-570 to a 9117-MMA:

  • Each model 570 has six PCI-X adapter slots in each CEC enclosure. The model MMA has two PCI-X and four PCIe adapter slots for each CEC enclosure. When upgrading, PCIe adapters can be purchased to provide the function of the excess PCI-X adapters, or the excess PCI-X adapters can be migrated to a remote I/O drawer attached to the model MMA.
  • The model MMA can support the 7413-G30 PCI-X (12X Channel) I/O Drawer with six PCI-X DDR slots, or the 7311-D11 or 7311-D20 (RIO-2) I/O drawers.
  • The model 570 has two native RIO ports on each CEC enclosure that support one RIO-2 loop per enclosure. The model MMA does not have native RIO ports but adds a second GX+ slot to each CEC enclosure and can support two GX+ adapters per enclosure.
  • The model MMA supports only the new SAS DASD hard disks internally. The older SCSI DASD hard disks can be attached to the model MMA but must be located in a remote I/O drawer. Either the 7031-D24 or the 7311-D20 is compatible with the DASD carriers used on the model 570 DASD files. The DASD files from the model 570 can be moved directly into these I/O drawers.
  • If there is a Machine Type 7310 HMC attached to the model 570, it can be moved to the model MMA, but the HMC firmware must be updated to licensed machine code Version 7, or later, to accommodate the model MMA improvements. The firmware upgrade must be completed before attaching the 7310 HMC to the 9117-MMA.
  • For processor feature number 5621, different memory size or frequency features may not be mixed on the same processor card. All of the memory features on a single processor card must be the same size in gigabytes when fully active and have the same frequency. Feature numbers 7894 and 4495 can be mixed on the same processor card because feature 4495 is 8 GB when fully active. Feature numbers 4497 and 4496 can be mixed on the same processor card because feature 4496 is 16 GB when fully active. The two processor cards in a single CEC enclosure may have different memory features installed. Processor cards in different enclosures in the same system may have different memory features installed.
  • For p5-570 systems that have the On/Off CoD function active, customers must reorder the On/Off activation feature (#7951) when placing the Upgrade MES order for the new p570 system to keep the On/Off CoD function active. Any temporary use of processors or memory owed to IBM on the p5-570 system must be paid before installing the new p570 model MMA.
  • Reserve CoD features are applicable only to the processor feature for which they are purchased. Any Reserve CoD credit remaining on the model 570 POWER5 or POWER5+ processor will not migrate to the model MMA.
  • Feature number 8017 is available to support migration of Memory activation code 7663 during the initial order and build of the Upgrade MES MMA order. Customers ordering an upgrade with processor feature 5621 and migrating memory from the p5-570 to the p570 should order feature number 8017 in a quantity equal to the quantity of feature 7663 that is currently active on their p5-570 system.
  • Feature number 8018 is available to support migration of the Advanced Power Virtualization feature (#7942) during the initial order and build of the Upgrade MES MMA order. Customers may add feature 8018 to their upgrade orders in a quantity not to exceed the quantity of feature 7942 purchased for the p5-570 being upgraded.

Reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS)

The reliability of the System p 570 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 high product quality levels.

The p570 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 is substantially reduced. ECC also provides double-bit memory error detection that helps protect data integrity in the event of a double-bit memory failure.

The AIX® operating system provides disk mirroring and disk controller duplexing while Linux™ supports DASD mirroring (RAID 1) through software. Additionally, some hardware RAID adapters are supported on Linux.

The Journaled File System, also known as JFS or JFS2, helps maintain file system consistency and reduces the likelihood of data loss when the system is abnormally halted due to a power failure. JFS, the recommended file system for 32-bit kernels, now supports extents on Linux. This feature is designed to substantially reduce or eliminate fragmentation. Its successor, JFS2, is the recommended file system for 64-bit kernels. With 64-bit addressing, a maximum file system size of 32 TB, and maximum file size of 16 TB, JFS2 is highly recommended for systems running the AIX operating system.

Memory error-correction extensions: POWER6 memory has single-error-correct and double-error-detect ECC circuitry designed to correct single-bit memory failures. 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 is designed to only affect a single bit within an ECC word (bit scattering), thus allowing for error correction and continued operation in the presence of a complete DRAM chip failure (Chipkill™ recovery).

POWER6 memory also utilizes memory scrubbing and dynamic bit steering, which uses correctable error thresholding to determine when available spare memory modules on each DIMM should be used to replace ones that have exceeded their threshold value.

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 set threshold. If exceeded, a deferred repair error log is created. Additional run-time availability actions, such as CPU vary off or L3 cache line delete, are also initiated.

L1 and L2 caches and L2 and L3 directories on the POWER6 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; it is also implemented in systems using the POWER6 processor. The steering logic is activated during processor initialization and is initiated by the built-in system-test (BIST) at power-on time.

When correctable error thresholds in the L3 cache exceed a set threshold, systems using the POWER6 processor invoke a dynamic L3 cache line delete function, which enables them to stop using bad cache and eliminates exposure to greater problems.

Fault monitoring functions: When a system using the POWER6 processor is powered on, BIST and POST (power-on self-test) check processors, L3 cache, memory, and associated hardware required for proper booting of the operating system. If a noncritical error is detected or if errors occur in resources that can be removed from the system configuration, the booting process is designed to proceed to completion. The errors are subsequently 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.

On POWER6 processor-based servers running the AIX or Linux operating systems, hardware and software failures are recorded in the system log. An Error Log Analysis (ELA) routine analyzes the error, forwards the event to the Service Focal Point (SFP) application running on the HMC, and notifies the system administrator that it has isolated a likely cause of the system problem. The Service Processor event log also records unrecoverable checkstop conditions and forwards them to the SFP application and notifies the system administrator. Once the information is logged in the SFP application, if the system is properly configured, a call home service request will be initiated and the pertinent failure data with service parts information and part locations will be sent to an IBM Service organization. Customer contact information and specific-system related data such as the machine type, model, and serial number along with engineering data related to the failure are sent to IBM service.

The call home feature enables IBM service representatives to preemptively bring the most-probable replacement parts when a service call is placed, reducing repair time.

Mutual surveillance: The Service Processor monitors the operation of 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: POWER6 processor-based servers include a range of environmental monitoring functions.

  • Temperature monitoring increases the fan speed rotation when ambient temperature is above the normal operating range, or when a redundant fan fails.
  • 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 increases fan speeds on the redundant fans to compensate for a detected fan failure. It can also initiate an orderly system shutdown if there is an additional cooling failure when the fans are in high-speed mode.
  • Voltage monitoring provides warning and an orderly system shutdown when the voltages are out of operational specification.

Availability enhancement functions

The POWER6 line of systems continues to offer and introduce significant enhancements designed to increase system availability.

POWER6 processor availability enhancements: One of the significant mainframe-inspired availability enhancements in systems with the POWER6 processor is the ability to do processor instruction retry and alternate processor recovery. This significantly reduces exposure to both hard (logic) and soft (transient) errors in the processor core.

Soft failures in the processor core are transient (intermittent) errors, often due to cosmic rays or other sources of radiation, and generally are not repeatable. When an error is encountered in the core, the POWER6 processor will first automatically retry the instruction. If the source of the error was truly transient, the instruction will succeed and the system will continue as before. On predecessor IBM systems, this error would have caused a checkstop.

Hard failures are more difficult, being true logical errors that will be replicated each time the instruction is repeated. Retrying the instruction will not help in this situation because the instruction will continue to fail. Systems with POWER6 processors introduce the ability to extract the failing instruction from the faulty core and retry it elsewhere in the system, after which the failing core is dynamically deconfigured and called out for replacement. The entire process is transparent to the partition owning the failing instruction. Systems with POWER6 processors are designed to avoid what would have been a full system outage on earlier models.

POWER6 single processor checkstopping: Another major advancement in POWER6 processors is single processor checkstopping. Prior to POWER6 processors, a processor checkstop would result in a system checkstop. A new feature in System p 570 is the ability to contain most processor checkstops to the partition that was using the processor at the time. This significantly reduces the probability of any one processor affecting total system availability.

POWER6 cache availability: The POWER line of servers continues to be at the forefront of cache availability enhancements. While L3 cache line delete (also called "Pellston" healing) was introduced with POWER4™ processors, the POWER6 processor line pioneers L2 cache line delete. In the event that an uncorrectable error occurs in L2 or L3 cache, the system will be able to dynamically remove the offending line of cache without requiring a reboot. In addition POWER6 utilizes an inclusive L1/L2 cache design and a write-through cache policy on all levels, helping to ensure that data is written to main memory as soon as possible. POWER6 processors also continue to offer hardware-assisted memory scrubbing.

Special uncorrectable error handling: Uncorrectable errors are difficult for any system to tolerate, although there are some situations where they can be shown to be irrelevant. For example, if an uncorrectable error occurs in cached data that will never again be read or where a fresh write of the data is imminent, it would be unwise to "protect" the user by forcing an immediate reboot.

Special Uncorrectable Error (SUE) handling was an IBM innovation introduced for POWER5 processors, where an uncorrectable error in memory or cache does not immediately cause the system to terminate. Rather, the system tags the data and determines whether it will ever be used again. If the error is irrelevant, it will not force a checkstop.

PCI extended error handling: Prior to POWER5 processors, PCI bus parity errors caused a global machine check interrupt, which eventually required a system reboot to continue. In systems using POWER6 processors, 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, there is limited support for Linux, depending upon driver availability.

Predictive Failure Analysis® and dynamic component deallocation: Servers with POWER processors have long had the capability to perform predictive failure analysis on certain critical components such as processors and memory. When these components exhibit symptoms that would indicate a failure is imminent, the system can dynamically deallocate and call home about the failing part before the error becomes systematic. In many cases this is transparent, especially if the system contains CUoD components. If no CUoD resources are available, the system will first attempt to reallocate resources in such a way that will avoid unplanned outages. In the event that insufficient resources exist to maintain full system availability, these servers will attempt to maintain partition availability by user-defined priority.

Uncorrectable error recovery: 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 System p 570 server has been designed with both IBM and customer serviceability in mind.

Advancements such as Guiding Light LED architecture are used to control a system of integrated LEDs that lead the individual servicing the machine to the correct part as quickly as possible.

The p570 allows customers to replace service parts (customer-replaceable unit). To do this, the p570 uses Guiding Light LEDs to indicate the parts needing to be replaced.

An HMC attached to the p570 allows support personnel (with client authorization) to remotely log in to review error logs and perform remote maintenance if required.

  • The I/O device and adapter diagnostics consist of Stand-alone Diagnostics, which are loaded from the DVD-ROM drive, and Online Diagnostics.

Online Diagnostics, when installed, are resident with the AIX operating system 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.

Note: Because the 9117-MMA system has an optional DVD-ROM (#5756) and DVD-RAM (#5757), 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.

Concurrent maintenance guided service procedures will continue to be supported by the Repair and Verify (R&V) component of the Service Focal Point application running on the HMC. Repair procedures that are not covered by the guided R&V component will be documented and available for display on any Web browser-enabled system as well as on the HMC. Instead of using the InfoCenter like the p5-570, the p570 service procedures will be released through the System Support Site. You can subscribe to the System Support Site to obtain the latest service procedure updates as they are released from IBM.

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. CEC and power and cooling subsystem events are analyzed concurrently with system operation by the Processor Runtime Diagnostics (PRD) or by Hypervisor code. Results of these analyses are logged on the service processor and forwarded to both the operating system partitions and the SFP application on the HMC.

The SFP application contains logs of all detected and analyzed errors detected either by the device drivers on the operating system for I/O-based events or by PRD or Hypervisor for runtime detected errors in the remainder of the system.

With the call home function on the HMC, the system has the ability to automatically send out an alert via phone line to a pager or initiate a call for service when a service action point has been reached.

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.

Service Processor: The p570 Service Processor provides the capability to diagnose, check the status of, and sense the operational conditions of a system. It runs on its own power boundary and does not require resources from 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 menus (ASMI) can be accessed concurrently with system operation allowing nondisruptive abilities to change system default parameters.

Call home: The call home application is available at no additional charge and is installed on every HMC. When the call home application is properly configured by the client, it can enhance IBM's ability to provide the system with maintenance service.

Concurrent maintenance: The p570 will continue to support concurrent repair of power, cooling, PCI adapters, media devices, and the operator panel. In addition, the p570 will continue to support concurrent firmware update when possible. The determination of whether a firmware release can be updated concurrently is identified in the read me information file released with the firmware.

IBM Electronic Services

Electronic Service Agent™ and the IBM Electronic Services Web portal comprise the IBM Electronic Services solution — dedicated to providing fast, exceptional support to System p customers. IBM Electronic Service Agent is a no-charge tool that proactively monitors and reports hardware events, such as system errors, performance issues, and inventory. Electronic Service Agent can help you stay focused on your company's strategic business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues. Servers enabled with this tool can be monitored remotely around the clock by IBM Support — all at no additional cost to you!

Now integrated in AIX 5.3 TL6 in addition to the HMC, Electronic Service Agent is designed to automatically and electronically report system failures and utilization issues to IBM, which can result in faster problem resolution and increased availability. System configuration and inventory information collected by Electronic Service Agent also can be viewed on the secure Electronic Services Web portal and used to improve problem determination and resolution by you and the IBM support team. As part of an increased focus to provide even better service to IBM customers, Electronic Service Agent tool configuration and activation comes standard with your System p 9117-MMA. Your IBM Systems Support Representative will configure Service Agent at system installation time. In support of this effort, a new HMC External Connectivity security whitepaper has been published, which describes data exchanges between the HMC and the IBM Service Delivery Center (SDC) and the methods and protocols for this exchange. To read the whitepaper and prepare for Electronic Service Agent installation, go to the Reference Guide section of

The Electronic Services Web portal is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. This Web portal enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems. The newly improved My Systems and Premium Search functions make it even easier for Electronic Service Agent-enabled customers to track system inventory and find pertinent fixes.

Benefits

Increased uptime: Electronic Service Agent is designed to enhance the Warranty or Maintenance Agreement by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can translate to less wasted time monitoring the symptoms, diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. Its 24 x 7 monitoring and reporting means no more dependence on human intervention or off-hours customer personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security: Electronic Service Agent is secure in monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM. Electronic Service Agent securely transmits either via the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem, and can be configured to communicate securely through gateways to provide customers a single point of exit from their site. Communication is one-way; activating Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a customer's system. System inventory information is stored in a secure database, which is protected behind IBM firewalls. The customer's business applications or business data is never transmitted to IBM.

More accurate reporting: Since system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support center in conjunction with the service request, customers are not required to find and send system information, decreasing the risk of misreported or misdiagnosed errors. Once inside IBM, problem error data is run through a data knowledge management system and knowledge articles are appended to the problem record.

Customized support: Using the IBM ID entered during activation, customers can view system and support information in the My Systems and Premium Search sections of the Electronic Services Web site at

My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by IBM Electronic Service Agent. Reports are available for any system associated with the customer's IBM ID. Premium Search combines the function of search and the value of Electronic Service Agent information, providing advanced search of the technical support knowledgebase. Using Premium Search and the Service Agent information that has been collected from your system, customers are able to see search results that apply specifically to their systems.

Advanced POWER Virtualization

Advanced POWER Virtualization is an optional System p hardware feature that includes the following elements:

  • Partition Mobility6 will allow you to move a running LPAR from one physical server to another with no downtime if both servers are using POWER6 processors. This is a significant advancement in System p virtualization technology and will assist you with performing the following common business needs while keeping the business up and running. Examples of such uses include evacuating a system before performing scheduled maintenance, moving workloads across a pool of different physical resources as business needs shift, and moving workloads off of under-utilized machines so that they can be powered off to save on energy and cooling costs.
  • Micro-Partitioning support for a single processor being shared by up to 10 logical partitions.
  • VIOS V1.4 is a single-function appliance that resides in a POWER5 processor-based or POWER6 processor-based partition. It facilitates the sharing of physical I/O resources between client partitions (AIX 5L V5.3, or later, or Linux) within the server. VIOS provides virtual SCSI targets and Shared Ethernet Adapter (SEA) virtual I/O to client LPARs.
    • Virtual SCSI (VSCSI) enables the sharing of physical storage adapters (SCSI and Fibre Channel) and storage devices (disk and optical) between LPARs.
    • Virtual networking: A Shared Ethernet Adapter enables connectivity between internal and external virtual LANs (VLANs); Virtual Ethernet provides high-speed connections between partitions.
  • Integrated Virtualization Manager (IVM) is a browser-based system management interface that you can use to manage a single system without an HMC. With IVM, you can more cost-effectively consolidate multiple partitions onto a single server. With its intuitive interface, the IVM is easy to use and is designed to reduce significantly the time and effort required to manage virtual devices and partitions. Specific tasks that you can perform using IVM include:
    • Creating LPARs on a single managed system
    • Managing the virtual storage and Virtual Ethernet on the managed system
    • Viewing service information related to the managed system
  • Automated CPU and memory reconfiguration.
  • Real-time partition configuration and load statistics.
  • Support for dedicated and shared processor LPAR groups.
  • Support for manual provisioning of resources.

VIOS V1.4 content: New in this release:

  • POWER6 processor: VIOS enablement for the POWER6 processor in the System p platform
  • LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol): Centralized user management
  • SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol): Standard interface used for monitoring and management
  • LPAR simplification: Tool that simplifies the process of planning and deploying System p LPARs and virtual I/O.
  • New storage subsystems: nSeries and NetApp subsystems and Fibre Channel attach
  • New interconnects: SAS (for disk attach), SATA (optical controller): Tool that simplifies the process of planning and deploying System p LPARs and virtual I/O.
  • HEA (Host Ethernet Adapters)
    • VIOS's SEA supports bridging Virtual Ethernet to HEA

Statement of general direction

IBM is committed to enhancing its clients' investments in System p servers. Based on this commitment, IBM plans to provide future enhancements as identified here.

It is IBM's intention to support a future version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 for POWER starting in second half 2007 on POWER6 processor-based servers.

IBM plans to provide redundant service processor capability to existing POWER6 processor-based p570 systems with two or more CEC enclosures. This capability is planned to be provided via a firmware upgrade at no additional charge by the end of 2007. Once this upgrade is applied, the appropriate HMC connections made, and the system rebooted, service processor functions can maintain operational status in the unlikely event that one of the service processors fails.

IBM plans to provide the capability for POWER6 processor-based p570 systems to add an additional CEC enclosure (node) to a p570 system, without powering down the system (hot-node add).

The additional p570 enclosure would be ordered as a system upgrade and added to the original system while operations continued. The additional resources of the new additional enclosure could then be assigned to existing applications or new applications as required. This capability is planned to be provided at no additional charge to existing POWER6 processor-based p570 users via a system firmware upgrade by the end of 2007. (Additional CEC enclosures are ordered and charged as per normal business practices.)

In addition, in certain cases, IBM plans to provide the capability for POWER6 processor-based p570 systems that have experienced a failure and rebooted without one of the CEC enclosures active, to be able to have the de-activated enclosure repaired and reintegrated into the active system without powering down the system (cold-node repair). The additional resources of the repaired CEC enclosure, could then be assigned to existing applications or new applications as required. This capability is planned to be provided at no additional charge to existing POWER6 processor-based p570 users via a system firmware upgrade by the end of 2007.

IBM plans to provide a new feature, entitled "Live Partition Mobility" as part of System p Advanced POWER Virtualization for IBM's POWER6 processor-based servers in late 2007. Live Partition Mobility will allow clients to move a running partition from one physical System p POWER6 processor-based server to another System p POWER6 processor-based server without application downtime, helping clients to avoid application interruption for planned system maintenance, provisioning, and workload management.

All statements regarding IBM's plans, directions, and intent are subject to change or withdrawal without notice. Any reliance on these statements of general direction is at the relying party's sole risk and will not create liability or obligation for IBM.

    Note: The Advanced POWER Virtualization feature (#7942) is not supported on AIX 5L for POWER V5.2.

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

Information on features and external devices supported by Linux can be found at

If installing the p570 server within the Cluster 1600:

  • CSM V1.4 (AIX or Linux)

Processors

The external processor fabric bus in this system is modular. Cable features are available for connecting pairs of drawers, three drawer stacks and four drawer stacks. With this modular approach, a separate cable is required to connect each drawer to each other drawer in a multi-enclosure stack.

  • Feature number 3660 is used to connect adjacent drawers in the stack: drawer 1 to drawer 2; a second feature is required to connect drawer 2 to drawer 3, and yet another feature to connect drawer 3 to drawer 4.
  • Feature number 3664 is used to connect three-drawer combinations: drawer 1 to drawer 3; a second feature is required to connect drawer 2 to drawer 4.
  • Feature number 3665 is used to connect four-drawer combinations: drawer 1 to drawer 4.

To create the external processor fabric bus required for a full four-CEC enclosure system, three of feature number 3660, two of feature number 3664, and one of feature number 3665 are required.

Each system must have a minimum of two active processors.

A system can have from one to four CEC enclosures. Each enclosure has two sockets; each socket will accept a processor card feature. A system with one enclosure may have one or two processor cards installed. A system with two, three, or four enclosures must have two processor cards in each enclosure.

When two or more processor cards are installed in a system, all cards must have the same feature number. The one exception to this is that 9117-570 systems that were upgraded to 9117-MMA system using processor card feature number 5621 may increase these systems to a maximum of 16 cores using processor feature card number 5621 or 5622. Once feature number 5622 has been added to the system, all additional processors added must be feature number 5622. Features 5621 and 5622 may not be mixed in the same CEC enclosure.

Processor card feature numbers 7380, 5620, and 5622 have 12 memory DIMM slots and must be populated with POWER6 DDR2 Memory DIMMs.

Processor card feature number 5621 has eight DIMM slots. These slots will not accept POWER6 memory DIMMs.

Processor card feature number 5621 is only available to systems that were upgraded from POWER5™ or POWER5+™ processor systems. Once upgraded, they become POWER6 systems.

All processor cards require two working Processor Power Regulators per CEC enclosure. Enclosures with two Processor Power Regulators do not provide redundancy for any processor configuration. A third Processor Power Regulator is required to provide redundant power support to either one or two processor cards in an enclosure.

All CEC enclosures must ship with three Processor Power Regulators (#5625) except for system configurations that contain one or two of processor feature number 5620 in a single CEC enclosure system.

A system configuration with one or two of processor feature number 5620 in a single enclosure may ship with two Processor Power Regulators (#5625) and one Virtual Power Regulator (#5686). In these configurations, the Processor Power Regulators do not provide redundant support to the processors.

Processor CoD activations will activate processor hardware only in the system serial number they are purchased for. If you move processor hardware to another system, the processor may not be functional in that system until arrangements are made to move the processor activations or purchase additional processor activations. Contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner for more information.

Memory

Each processor card feature must have a minimum of four DIMMs installed. This includes inactive processor card features present in the system.

Most memory features include a total of four DIMMs. A minimum of four DIMMs from any memory feature must be placed on the same processor card. There is a required plug location for every memory feature attached to a process or card.

  • The first four memory DIMMs must be plugged in DIMM sockets J0A, J0B, J0C, and J0D.
  • The second four memory DIMMs must be plugged in DIMM sockets J1A, J1B, J1C, and J1D.
  • The third four memory DIMMs (for processor cards able to accept 12 DIMMs) must be plugged in DIMM sockets J2A, J2B, J2C, and J2D.

When configuring the memory in a p570, placing 2 memory features (8 DIMMs) on a single processor card will provide the maximum available memory bandwidth. Adding the third memory feature will provide additional memory capacity but will not increase memory bandwidth. System performance that is dependent on memory bandwidth can be improved by purchasing two smaller features per processor card as opposed to one large feature per processor card. To achieve this, when placing an order, ensure the order has 2X memory features for every processor card feature on the order.

All POWER6 memory features must be purchased with sufficient permanent memory activation features so that each memory feature is at least 50% active, except memory feature 8129, which must be purchased with Activation feature 5681 for 100% activation.

Memory features 5692, 5693, 5694, and 5695 can be mixed on the same POWER6 processor card.

Memory features 5696 and 8129 may not be mixed with any other memory feature on a single processor card. A processor card with memory feature 5696 or 8129 can be mixed in the same CEC enclosure with a processor card containing other POWER6 memory features.

Memory features 5696 and 8129 cannot be used on processor card feature 5620.

For processor feature number 5621, different memory size or frequency features may not be mixed on the same processor card. All of the memory features on a single processor card must be the same size in gigabytes when fully active and have the same frequency. Feature numbers 7894 and 4495 can be mixed on the same processor card because 4495 is 8 GB when fully active. Feature numbers 4497 and 4496 can be mixed on the same processor card because 4496 is 16 GB when fully active. The two processor cards in a single CEC enclosure may have different memory features installed. Processor cards in different enclosures in the same system may have different memory features installed.

For all processors and all system configurations, if memory features in a single system have different frequencies, all memory in the system will function according to the lowest frequency present.

Each system must contain a minimum of 2 GB of active system memory.

Processor card feature numbers 7380, 5620, and 5622 have 12 memory DIMM slots and must be populated with POWER6 DDR2 Memory DIMMs.

Processor card feature number 5621 has eight DIMM slots. These slots will not accept POWER6 DDR2 Memory DIMMs.

Memory CoD activations will activate memory hardware only in the system serial number they are purchased for. If you move memory hardware to another system, the memory may not be functional in that system until arrangements are made to move the memory activations or purchase additional memory activations. Contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner for more information.

It is recommended that memory be installed evenly across all processor cards in the system. Balancing memory across the installed processor cards allows memory access in a consistent manner and typically results in the best possible performance for your configuration.

Plans for future memory upgrades should be taken into account when deciding which memory feature size to use at the time of initial system order.

Power

Each p570 system with two or more CEC enclosures (eight or more processor cores) that includes the attachment of remote I/O drawers must have one Power Control Cable (#6006 or similar) to connect the Service Interface Card in the first enclosure to the Service Interface Card in the second enclosure. In these configurations both Service Interface Cards must be included in the Power Control Cable loop.

There are two ac power supplies in each CEC enclosure; the second is required to provide redundant power for enhanced system availability. A CEC enclosure will continue to function with one working power supply. A failed power supply can be hot-swapped but must remain in the system until the replacement power supply is available for exchange.

There are three Processor Power Regulators in each CEC enclosure; the third is required to provide redundant power to the processors for enhanced system availability. The processors will continue to function if there are at least two working Power Regulators in the enclosure. A failed (third) Power Regulator can be hot-swapped but must remain in the system until the replacement power regulator is available for exchange.

Two Processor Power Regulators in a single enclosure do not provide redundancy for any processor configuration. A third Processor Power Regulator is required to provide redundant power support to either one or two processor cards in the enclosure.

All CEC enclosures must ship with three Processor Power Regulators (#5625) except for the system configurations with one or two feature 5620 processors in a single CEC enclosure.

A system with one or two of processor feature number 5620 in a single enclosure may ship with two Processor Power Regulators (#5625) and one Virtual Power Regulator (#5686). In these configurations, the Processor Power Regulators do not provide redundant support to the processors.

Power distribution units

For systems installed in IBM 7014 racks, the following Power Distribution Unit (PDU) rules apply (not all PDUs are available in all models of the 7014):

  • For PDU features 9176, 9177, 7176, and 7177: Each pair of PDUs can power up to three p570 CEC enclosures (three drawers per two PDUs). (These features are no longer available for purchase.)
  • For PDU features 9178 and 7178: Each pair of PDUs can power up to six p570 CEC enclosures (six drawers per two PDUs). (These features are no longer available for purchase.)
  • For PDU features 9188 and 7188, when using power cord 6654, 6655, 6656, 6657, or 6658: Each pair of PDUs can power up to three p570 CEC enclosures (three drawers per two PDUs).
  • For PDU features 9188 and 7188, when using power cord feature numbers 6489, 6491, 6492, or 6653: Each pair of PDUs can power up to six p570 CEC enclosures (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 p570 consists of one to four CEC enclosures. Each enclosure occupies 4U of vertical rack space. The p570 is designed to be installed in a 7014-T00 or -T42 rack. An existing -T00 or -T42 rack can be used for the p570 if sufficient space and power are available. The p570 is not supported in the 7014-S25 or the -S11.

For p570 configurations with two, three, or four drawers, all drawers must be installed together in the same rack, in a contiguous space of 8U, 12U, or 16U within the rack. The uppermost enclosure in the system is the base enclosure. This enclosure will contain the active Service Processor and the Operator Panel, if an Operator Panel is present in the system.

When a p570 system is installed in an 7014-T00 or -T42 rack that has no front door, a Thin Profile Front Trim Kit must be ordered for the rack. 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 p570 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 29. 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 the bottom of the lowest drawer.)

The design of the p570 is optimized for use in a 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.

Acoustic Door features are available with the 7014-T00 and 7014-T42 racks to meet the lower acoustic levels identified in the specification section of this document. The Acoustic Door feature can be ordered on new T00 and T42 racks or ordered for the T00 and T42 racks that clients already own.

I/O drawers

Remote I/O drawers 7314-G30, 7311-D11, and 7311-D20 I/O can be attached to the 9117-MMA. The 7314-G30 attaches to a 12X Channel Adapter installed in one of the two GX slots available in each enclosure. The 7311 drawers attach to a RIO-2 Adapter installed in one of the two GX slots available in each enclosure.

7311-D20 I/O drawers with RIO Ports to I/O Planer Riser Card (#6413) must be upgraded to RIO-2 Ports to I/O Planer Riser Card (#6417) before it can be attached to a System p server with POWER6 processors.

Some I/O adapters supported in the 7311-D11 and the 7311-D20 I/O drawers when attached to an eServer® or System p5™ server will not be supported when attached to a System p server with POWER6 processors. See the Sales Manual for the I/O drawer on IBM.com for a complete listing.

The maximum number of attached remote I/O drawers depends on the number of CEC enclosures in the system and the I/O attachment type, as follows:

  • For RIO-2 attached I/O drawers:
    • Systems with one CEC enclosure:
      • With two processors the enclosure supports up to four I/O drawers.
      • With four processors the enclosure supports up to eight I/O drawers.
    • Systems with two CEC enclosures support up to 12 I/O drawers.
    • Systems with three CEC enclosures support up to 16 I/O drawers.
    • Systems with four CEC enclosures support up to 20 I/O drawers.
  • For 12X Host Channel attached I/O drawers:
    • Systems with one CEC enclosure
      • With two processors the enclosure supports up to four I/O drawers.
      • With four processors the enclosure supports up to eight I/O drawers.
      • Systems with two CEC enclosures support up to 16 I/O drawers.
      • Systems with three CEC enclosures support up to 24 I/O drawers.
      • Systems with four CEC enclosures support up to 32 I/O drawers.

It is recommended that any attached remote I/O drawers be located in the same rack as the p570 server for ease of service, but they can be installed in separate racks if the application or other rack content requires it.

I/O drawers are connected to the adapters in the CEC enclosure with the following cables:

  • Data transfer cables
    • RIO-2 attach cables for RIO-2 I/O Drawers
    • 12X cables for 12X Channel I/O Drawers
  • Power Control Cables

RIO-2 I/O Drawers and 12X Channel I/O Drawers may not be mixed in the same remote I/O loop.

Remote I/O drawer cable connections are always made in loops to help protect against a single point-of-failure resulting from an open, missing, or disconnected cable. A p570 system with nonlooped configurations could experience degraded performance and serviceability. If a nonloop connection is detected, a problem is reported.

The first I/O drawer attached in any remote I/O drawer loop requires two data transfer cables. Each additional drawer in the loop (up to the maximum of four) requires one additional data transfer cable.

The first I/O drawer attached to a host system requires two Power Control Cables. Each additional I/O drawer added to a host system requires one additional Power Control Cable. Each host system has one Power Control loop. All I/O drawers attached to a system are included in the same Power Control loop. Power Control Cable loops are different in this regard from data transfer cable loops.

Integrated I/O

Although each CEC enclosure is equipped with integrated system port (serial) external connectors, only the two system ports in the base enclosure are active. If an HMC is attached to the p570, the two integrated system ports will no longer function.

Each CEC enclosure must contain one Virtual Ethernet (HEA) Integrated I/O port card (#5636, #5637, or #5639). This selection is available only when a CEC enclosure is first ordered from the factory.

Each system has two HMC ports on each CEC enclosure. The HMC, however, must be attached to the base CEC enclosure.

The integrated system ports are supported for modem and async terminal connections. Other applications requiring a serial port attachment will need a separate serial port adapter feature to be purchased and installed in a PCI slot. The integrated system ports (serial) do not support HACMP™ configurations.

Disks, media, and boot devices

A device capable of reading a CD-ROM must be attached to the system and available to perform operating system installation, maintenance, problem determination, and service actions such as maintaining system firmware and I/O microcode at their latest levels. Alternatively, the system must be attached to a network with an AIX NIM server configured to perform these functions.

System boot is supported via DASD in a remote DASD drawer attached to a PCI adapter or an I/O drawer attached to GX adapter, or from a network via LAN adapters.

The minimum system configuration requires at least one SAS disk drive in one of the CEC enclosures.

Each CEC enclosure can support one media device when the optional Media Enclosure and Backplane feature (#5629) is ordered. Any supported DVD-ROM or DVD-RAM drive can be installed. Each system can support up to four media devices.

The model MMA supports only the new SAS DASD hard disks internally. The older SCSI DASD hard files can be attached to the model MMA but must be located in a remote I/O drawer. Either the 7031-D24 or the 7311-D20 are compatible with the DASD carriers used on the model 570 DASD files. The DASD files from the model 570 can be moved directly into these I/O drawers.

I/O slots and adapters

Each p570 CEC enclosure has two PCI-X slots, four PCIe slots, and two GX+ slots. One of the PCIe slots shares physical space with one of the GX+ slots such that a maximum of seven adapters can be used in a single CEC enclosure. The two PCI-X 2.0 DDR slots are full-length, 64-bit, 266 MHz slots. There are three full-length PCIe 8X slots and one short form factor PCIe 8X slot. The 2 GX+ slots support short form factor GX adapters.

The slots are identified on the back side of the CEC enclosure as follows:

Slot ID          Adapter type            Slot size
 
P1-C1             PCIe   8X             Full length
P1-C2             PCIe   8X             Full length
P1-C3             PCIe   8X             Full length
P1-C4             PCI-X  2.0 DDR        Full length
P1-C5             PCI-X  2.0 DDR        Full length
P1-C6/P1-C8       PCIe 8X / GX+         Short form factor
P1-C9             GX+                   Short form factor

Adapter slots P1-C6 and P1-C8 share the same physical space in a CEC enclosure. When a GX+ adapter is installed in GX slot P1-C8, PCIe slot P1-C6 cannot be used.

The p570 I/O slot population rules are complex. Extensive configuration rules and checking procedures are incorporated into the marketing configurator ECFGPWR to help ensure a valid system configuration. Configurations generated without using the ECFGPWR configurator may create orders that cannot be built, resulting in possible order rejection or delayed delivery.

Feature maximum limits in the feature descriptions of this document for adapters and devices may not provide optimal system performance. These limits are given to assist with connectivity and functional assurance. The maximum values shown here apply to the features installed in the system CEC enclosures. Adding remote I/O drawers will increase these limits.

Hot-plug options

The following options are hot-plug capable:

  • System ac power supplies: One functional power supply must remain installed at all times while the system is operating.
  • Disk drives.
  • Most PCI adapters.
  • Processor power regulators: Two functional power regulators must remain installed at all times while the system is operating.

Hot-plug procedures are contained in the Customer Information Center on IBM.com.

If the system boot device or system console is attached using an I/O adapter feature, that adapter may not be 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

Dynamic LPAR allows one partition per processor.

Up to 10 partitions per processor are supported when Advanced POWER Virtualization (#7942) is ordered. This function is not supported on AIX 5L V5.2.

An HMC is recommended for all LPAR configurations.

For Linux partitions, a DVD-ROM or DVD-RAM and a Media Enclosure and Backplane (#5629) are required.
