Parallel ESSL for AIX® 5L V3.2 adds support for clusters of IBM POWER5™ servers connected with an IBM eServer pSeries® High Performance Switch (HPS), and BladeCenter™ JS20 processors and POWER5 servers connected with a Myrinet-2000 Switch with Myrinet/PCI-X adapters running the AIX 5L V5.2 64-bit kernel.

The AIX 5L V5.3 (32-bit and 64-bit kernels) and V5.2 (32-bit kernel) are only supported on stand-alone clusters or clusters connected via a LAN supporting Internet Protocol (IP).

For communication, Parallel ESSL includes Basic Linear Algebra Communications Subprograms (BLACS), which use the Message Passing Interface (MPI). For computations, Parallel ESSL uses ESSL for AIX 5L subroutines.

The Parallel ESSL SMP Libraries are provided for use with the Parallel Environment MPI threads library. You can run single or multithreaded user space (US) or IP applications on all types of nodes. However, you cannot simultaneously call Parallel ESSL from multiple threads.

The Parallel ESSL GM libraries are provided for use with the MPICH-GM library and the Myrinet-2000 Switch with Myrinet/PCI-X adapters. IP is not supported.

The Parallel ESSL for AIX 5L libraries support both 32-bit and 64-bit environment applications. The subroutines can be called from applications written in Fortran, C, and C++.

Parallel ESSL for AIX 5L:

  • Runs under the AIX 5L V5.2 and V5.3 operating systems
  • Provides support for the new Fortran and C compilers
  • Supports the C interface for the BLACS

This is the last release of Parallel ESSL for AIX 5L that will support Parallel Systems Support Programs (PSSP) and the SP™ Switch2.

Compatibility: Parallel ESSL for AIX V3.2 is a functional enhancement and complete replacement of Parallel ESSL for AIX V3.1. End of service for Parallel ESSL for AIX V3.1 is not affected by this announcement.

Parallel ESSL V3.2 contains calling sequences that are identical to Parallel ESSL V3.1. Existing application programs will work without source code changes if you are migrating from Parallel ESSL V3.1 to Parallel ESSL V3.2.

Limitations

  • Parallel ESSL is not thread-safe. However, the Parallel ESSL SMP libraries are thread-tolerant and can therefore be called from a single thread of a multithreaded application. The Parallel ESSL GM libraries are not thread-tolerant and do not support multiple computational threads. Multiple simultaneous calls to Parallel ESSL from different threads of a single process causes unpredictable results.
  • AIX 5L V5.2 (32-bit kernel) and V5.3 are only supported on stand-alone clusters or clusters connected with a LAN supporting IP.
  • The Parallel ESSL GM Libraries do not support IP.
  • Parallel ESSL V3.2 does not support the SP Switch.

Sub-capacity pricing terms and conditions

To be eligible for sub-capacity pricing, the machine on which the eligible products are installed and running must be eligible for sub-capacity pricing terms and conditions. Software pricing at less than full machine capacity for eligible products apply when running:

  • AIX 5L V5.1, or later, on an IBM eServer pSeries 690 or equivalent partition-capable operating system and machine
  • OS/400® V5.1, or later, running on an IBM eServer iSeries Server
  • Linux running in an LPAR under AIX 5L V5.1, OS/400 V5.1, or in a partition on an equivalent partition-capable operating system and server

Sub-capacity pricing for eligible products is based on the current program pricing methodology, but the number of processors will be determined based on the sum of processors for all partitions where the program is defined (used). To obtain pricing at less than full machine capacity for eligible products, you are required to:

  • Install and use, when available, IBM's license use management program, which installs with eligible IBM programs.
  • Install available updates to the operating system and eligible products such that license use can be accurately managed.
  • If the use of sub-capacity pricing terms results in a reduced requirement for entitlements, you can reallocate the entitlement difference by distributing entitlements across a larger or different set of systems, or reserve then for future growth. There will be no refunds for these "freed up" entitlements. Subscription, Software Maintenance, and Support volumes and entitlements for existing contracts will continue at the same levels as the acquired licenses.

On/Off Capacity on Demand

To be eligible for On/Off Capacity on Demand pricing, customers must be enabled for temporary capacity on the corresponding hardware and the required contract — Z125-6907, Amendment for iSeries and pSeries Temporary Capacity On Demand — Software — must be signed prior to use.

Variable charges: The applicable processor-based one-time charge 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, 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.
