Model Abstract 7012-G30

The IBM RS/6000* Model G30 PowerPC* Server represents the newest generation of Symmetrical Multiprocessing (SMP) server systems. Based on the PowerPC* architecture, the G30 is the first of a family of mini- tower, symmetrical multiprocessor systems. The G30 accommodates up to two dual-processor cards, one memory card and six Micro Channel* bus expansion slots. The G30 comes standard with a dual PowerPC 601* processor card, with a 32-KB instruction/data (L1) cache and a 0.5-MB Level 2 (L2) cache per processor, 32 MB of shared memory, two disk bays, two media bays, a diskette drive, a SCSI controller, a CD-ROM, and a 1-GB SCSI-2 Fast/Wide disk. No-charge selects, 32-64 MB memory, and 1.1 to 2.2 GB of Disks are available. A single system image is provided via AIX Version 4.1.1 for servers. A second dual-processor card is available, or two additional disk bays may be added in lieu of second processor slot. A Keyboard/Mouse adapter is available as an optional feature. This adapter enables support of a set of keyboards and a 3-button mouse. Two existing display adapters and several displays and cables are available.

The IBM RS/6000* Model G02 Expansion Cabinet provides for additional expansion capability for a Model G30. The G02 provides six disk/media bays. A maximum of four G02s may be attached to each G30 processor.

SMP Technology

Design: The RS/6000's new SMP design incorporates multiple PowerPC processors sharing a single common memory and single copy of the AIX Version 4.1.1 for servers operating system. Jobs are scheduled across the processors allowing separate processes to be run simultaneously. Data and instructions are accessed from the shared memory, through a high-speed cache to the processors. This simple design with a coherent cache allows programs to exploit the parallelism provided by the multiple processors.

Design Requirements: There are several requirements that the design of a multiprocessor system must satisfy when compared to a uniprocessor system including:

  • Provide for scheduling of separate jobs across the various processors
  • Provide for synchronization of those separate jobs
  • Provide efficient paths between each processor and the memory subsystem
  • Manage the processor caches to maintain cache coherency (consistency)
  • Provide an input/output interface to the memory subsystem.

There are several additional requirements placed on the design by the unique characteristics of commercial applications. The key to delivering good commercial performance is not a factor solely of the processor, but rather of the memory hierarchy and the ability to do rapid cache to cache transfers. Typically, commercial applications exhibit data access patterns with a large footprint. This is very different from scientific or technical workloads. Commercial workloads are characterized by high L1/L2 cache miss rates, heavy memory traffic, and high cache migration rates. As data traffic increases due to the large footprint of commercial workloads, it is evident that the memory bus is potentially a bottleneck. It is, therefore, critical to performance that the SMP system be designed to handle these applications.

Design Fulfillment: The RS/6000 SMP models have the following major attributes:

  • The operating system has the ability to schedule and synchronize work across the available processors
  • A high-bandwidth (800 MB/sec) bus is provided for access between cache and memory
  • cache and memory are efficiently managed to maintain cache consistency

The design of the IBM SMP servers is to maximize performance as follows:

  • The program elements most recently used or projected to be used are kept in L1 cache (fastest access)
  • Programs and control objects are kept in L2 cache (next fastest)
  • Directories to data bases are kept in memory (next fastest to L2 cache)
  • Actual data bases are stored on disk drives.

IBM's new generation of servers provides efficient paths between processors and memory and efficiently manages the processor caches to maintain cache coherency. A distributed directory (snoop) mechanism is used to maintain cache coherency. The traditional memory bus is still present, but it only carries address tags. A nonblocking cross-bar switch is added to the design which carries the data between cache and memory or cache and cache. A patented, four-deep pipelined snoop architecture is used to provide the highest degree of concurrency in memory and cache operations and operates in conjunction with the data cross-bar. The design allows operations to take place in single memory- read cycle which in other SMP designs will take 2 or 3 such cycles.

Reliability and Availability: Reliability and availability are key concerns for any commercial system. In a widely distributed environment this becomes more critical. To address this the IBM design provides remote as well as local control. The IBM SMP servers include features such as IBM SystemGuard*, an imbedded support processor, which will enable remote operation of the system, remote power-on/power-off, running of diagnostics, service, repair and console support as well as processor reconfiguration in case of errors. The support processor is continuously powered even when system power is off. The mirrored console support means that remote service actions are visible and controlled by the customer. This includes control over whether the system can be remotely rebooted. An additional feature is that the system can be set to dial a remote service or support point should the system fail, and a surveillance function allows the system to detect "hang" conditions in the system and if necessary invoke a rapid reboot.

In addition to the support processor, the error checking and correction circuitry protecting memory is able to detect and correct all single bit failures. Double bit errors and package failures (such as could be caused by a chip failure) will also be detected and auto reboot invoked.

When talking about Reliability and Serviceability one must not forget the important part played by AIX Version 4.1.1 for servers operating system. Features such as the Logical Volume Manager, Journalled File System, and dynamic kernel all contribute to a reliable and robust Operating System implementation.

Scalability: Scalability is also a key design consideration. The IBM G30 SMP servers have been built to be easily upgraded. The packaging is such that it permits convenient replacement or upgrading of processor, memory, or I/O adapters.

For example, the processors are contained on dual-processor cards. To upgrade from a 2-way to a 4-way system is merely a matter of plugging in an additional dual-processor card.

Product Positioning

The new RS/6000 PowerPC* servers are the first of a new generation of systems for business featuring an innovative symmetric multiprocessor (SMP) design that combines the PowerPC - IBM's leading RISC microprocessor, AIX - IBM's industrial-strength UNIX, and IBM's large systems-development experience to bring unprecedented reliability, scalability, and capacity to low-cost enterprise servers. With the addition of these new IBM SMP PowerPC servers along with the RS/6000 uniprocessors and highly scalable SP2, IBM offers the broadest range of binary compatible UNIX-based servers in the industry.

These new SMP systems exploit the performance of the PowerPC 601 in a 2-way or 4-way processor configuration. Over time, these systems will incorporate higher performance PowerPC microprocessors, and, for the Models J30 and R30, up to 8-way processor configurations. This built-in upgrade path allows easy capacity upgrades as performance requirements grow.

Designed to avoid typical performance bottlenecks, IBM's new RS/6000 PowerPC servers leverage IBM's extensive large systems experience, applying mainframe-class technology to the SMP design. An innovative nonblocking data crossbar speeds memory/processor interaction, with a sustained memory subsystem bandwidth of 800 MB/second. This high-memory capacity allows future performance upgrades to most effectively exploit these systems. Reliability has been enhanced with the inclusion of an integrated service processor that continually monitors the system and automatically acts to recover the system from selected error conditions.

Supporting the SMP-enabled AIX Version 4.1.1 for servers operating system, these systems are binary compatible with the majority of over 10,000 of the applications available for the RS/6000 uniprocessors. Combining resources and experience, IBM and its leading software partners are focused to quickly offer application enablers, such as the leading database offerings, for the new SMP servers to provide timely availability of solutions.

The RS/6000 uniprocessors remain best suited for many server applications as they offer strong granularity in performance and expansion as well as a large range of model upgrades. As performance needs grow beyond the uniprocessors, aggressively priced upgrades are available from many of the deskside and rack-mounted uniprocessors to SMP systems.

Most technical server applications requiring the maximum performance on floating-point or numerically intensive workloads will be best served by the POWER2-based uniprocessors. They continue to offer the best performance and price-performance on these technical applications.

Printer notes:

  1. Feature number #3155 for the IBM 3812 printer is required for attachment to the RS/6000 system.

  2. Feature number #7652 for the IBM 3816 printer is required for attachment to the RS/6000 system.

  3. When using the serial ports, the IBM 4019 requires feature number #9143 (System serial interface adapter) for attachment to the RS/6000 system.

  4. The IBM RS/6000 system supports Code Page 850. The Code Page 850 cartridge must be installed on the IBM 5202 printer to fully utilize the full character sets of the system. For details on available cartridges, refer to the IBM 5202 Sales Manual. Other IBM printers have Code Page 850 resident.

  5. For optimum system performance, high-speed serial printers should be attached to the native ports or the 128-Port Async Controller.

  6. The parallel printer port is provided for the convenience character printer. High-speed printers or applications requiring a large amount of data transfer per page (e.g., high-density graphics) should use the serial interface for optimum system performance.

  7. Impactwriter A models emulate the IBM 4202-3 printer for traditional line printing of simple text and numbers. Graphics, all points addressable, and large characters cannot be printed.

  8. For assistance with these printers, call Lexmark Customer support.
    • Lexmark Customer support line: 606-232-3000
    • Lexmark Internet file server: ftp.lexmark.com

  9. Use the virtual printer files available from Lexmark for the PCL emulation mode of the 4076 printer. For PPDS (IBM ASCII), select emulation of the 2390 Personal Printer.

This section provides details on the contents of the G30 model conversion ship group and the additional features you will need to order or have available prior to performing the upgrade. In addition, it discusses which existing features are supported and offers several options for using existing memory when upgrading to the G30.

What is contained in the model conversion shipment group?

The upgrades to the Model G30 contain the following items:

  • One dual (2-way) 601 75-MHz processor card (feature 9301)
  • Chassis with customer's existing Serial Number
  • One internal 4-drop SCSI cable (feature 9440) or customer selectable 6-drop SCSI cable and DASD tray (feature 6510)
  • New Labels
  • Installation instructions
  • New Diagnostics
  • New publications

Your existing supported disk, media devices and adapters may be transferred to the new Model G30 system. The replaced chassis and main circuit boards become the property of IBM and must be returned to IBM. Optional features of the replaced system will either be installed in the new system or returned to you.

What additional features will I need to order?

Upgraded machines must contain the same or equivalent base features as the Model G30 at the conclusion of the upgrade.

These items must be installed or available with the upgrade:

  • One additional dual (2-Way) 601 75-MHz processor card (feature 5302) for 380 and 390 to G30 upgrades.

    Note: Additional dual-processor cards are available with all upgrades.

  • G series memory card with a minimum of 32 MB of memory

  • SCSI-2 Fast/Wide Adapter

  • CD-ROM drive

  • 1 GB of 3.5-inch 8-bit or 16-bit SCSI-2 disk drives

If additional hardware is required for the upgrade it must be purchased with the upgrade or be available at the time of the upgrade. It will also be necessary to perform a prerequisite analysis of all customer machine orders prior to the upgrade being scheduled for shipment.

Which of my existing features are supported?

Several features on the existing 300 series models are not supported on the Model G30. Refer to the Feature Availability Matrix for a listing of supported and non-supported features.

Before accepting your order, IBM will advise you of all features that will not be supported as a result of upgrading your machine. Non-supported features remain your property and are not returned to IBM.

Memory Feature Exchange:

IBM offers an SMP memory exchange program at a reduced fee, for customers who are converting from a Uni processor to an SMP processor. Customers with installed IBM Uni processor memory may use the exchange program to acquire SMP memory.

Limitations

Limitations for the Model G30

Limitations for Disk Storage Adapters and Subsystems on Model G30: Storage configurations can be maximized for individual types of storage or combination of types (e.g., all SCSI, all serial-link, SCSI and serial-link in combination). The following chart shows maximum disk capacity for each maximized configuration. The "Assumptions" section defines each adapter/subsystem combination. The "Configuration" sections show the type or combination of types of storage in each header followed by the quantity of each adapter in the left-hand column with the quantity of each type of storage in the center and right-hand columns.

  • Assumptions
    • Base SCSI-2 adapter supports internal disk and media devices plus an external bus
      • Internal: 2 - 2.2-GB disks plus 2 - 4.5 GB = 13.4 GB
      • External: SE or Differential Bus
    • Maximum SCSI + Serial adapters is 5
    • SCSI-2 Adapter may connect to either of the following:
      • G02: 2 - 2.2-GB disks plus 4 - 4.5 GB = 22.4 GB
      • IBM 7134: 15 - 4.5-GB disks = 67.5 GB
    • Serial-link Adapter connects to four IBM 9333
      • IBM 9333: 4 - 2-GB disks = 8 GB
    • One media bay is reserved for tape.

  • CALCULATED STORAGE LIMITS:
      MAX                350 GB

  • Feature 2972 -- Auto Token-Ring LANstreamer 32MC Adapter:
    • Full duplex function only supported with AIX Version 4.1.5, 4.2.1, 4.3.1 or later.
    • Limited to select RS/6000 machine type/models. Check the Sales Manual for feature #2972 on other RS/6000 machine type/models to determine whether the full duplex function is supported.

Hardware Requirements

IBM supported ASCII terminal and cable or supported display, display adapter, and keyboard.

Software Requirements

AIX Version 4.1.1 for servers plus updates available at the availability of IBM RS/6000 Model G30 PowerPC Server.

The majority of the more than 10,000 existing AIX 3.2.5-based applications are expected to be binary compatible with AIX 4.1.1. This expectation is based on IBM's knowledge of the aspects of AIX that have been changed, and their potential impact to an application running on the system, as well as IBM's own in-house experiences. However, application providers will need to certify that their individual applications will run unchanged. This is typically done through the vendor's own testing process. Customers, then, should consult the application vendor for verification of compatibility. There are situations where some AIX 3.2.5-based applications will NOT run unchanged on AIX 4.1.1. Examples include applications which use certain kernel extensions or device drivers. For the vendors of these applications, IBM is providing documentation, education, and support to help the vendor identify the changes necessary to make their application AIX 4.1.1-compatible.

(#2402) IBM Network Terminal Accelerator - 256 Session

(For IBM US, No Longer Available as of January 8, 1998)

The Network Terminal Accelerator - 256 Session Feature is an Ethernet adapter which accelerates network performance by offloading the telnet and rlogin daemons, TCP/IP protocol stack and virtual terminal I/O management from the RS/6000 system. The Network adapter buffers the system from frequent CPU intensive packet interrupts and reduces context switches, dramatically reducing CPU load. Network adapter increases terminal I/O throughput and the number of concurrent on-line user sessions.

The Network adapter software also provides a "pass-through" capability for other Ethernet protocols, which can eliminate the need for a separate Ethernet adapter. For network management the adapter supports onboard SNMP.

The Network adapter is a 32 bit bus master Micro Channel card with a 25Mhz i960 high performance RISC processor and 2MB of two-way bank interleaved DRAM memory with parity. It provides one AUI DB-15 Ethernet port for attachment to a user supplied Ethernet transceiver of any Ethernet media type, 10Base-T, 10Base2, or 10Base5. And it supports both 802.3 and DIX V2.

(#2720) Fiber Distributed Data Interface Single-Ring Adapter

FC 2720 is no longer available.

The Fiber Distributed Data Interface adapter uses FDDI (Fiber Distributed Data Interface), a LAN communications technology that uses optical cabling designed for a line speed of up to 100 Megabits/sec.

FDDI is designed to support the TCP/IP protocol, and supports NFS(10) over TCP/IP. The FDDI implementation supports ANSI standard X3T9.5, with the exception that Station Management (SMT) function is limited to Agent support only. A programming interface (API) is provided for the device driver.

Fiber optic cable is designed to be immune to electromagnetic interference (EMI). Therefore, using fiber technology may prevent jamming by high power emissions. Additionally, fiber optics do not emit electromagnetic radiation (EMR). This feature enhances security, since it helps prevent eavesdropping.

The RS/6000 Fiber Distributed Data Interface Single Ring Adapter provides a single-attach station (SAS) option and attaches to the FDDI Network's primary ring directly or via an external FDDI Concentrator. Connection via an external FDDI Concentrator isolates the workstations from the primary ring and protects the network from routine station on/off cycles and individual station failures. Each FDDI adapter requires one Micro Channel card slot. The FDDI card requires Multi-Mode (62.5/125 Micron) FDDI optical fiber jumper cables. The FDDI jumper cables are available in five standard lengths of 4 meter (12 feet), 7 meter (20 feet), 15 meter (50 feet), 31 meter ( 100 feet) and 61 meter (200 feet) or custom lengths in one foot increments. They are available with MIC, FC, ST, or SC connectors.

For more information about the jumper cables, planning, design, and installation of optical fiber cabling systems, refer to IBM Publication GA27-3943, "IBM Cabling System Optical Fiber Installation and Planning Guide."

Jumper cables are the responsibility of the customer and may be ordered from your local authorized IBM cabling distributor or by calling 1-800-IBM-2468 in the United States.

(#7006) IBM Realtime Interface Co-Processor: Portmaster Adapter/A (1 MB)

(For IBM US, No Longer Available as of December 1, 2000)

The IBM Realtime Interface Co-Processor Portmaster Adapter/A is a full-function Micro Channel bus master that complements and extends the capabilities of the IBM Realtime Interface Co-Processor family of adapters. Bus master extensions for the adapter include capabilities and services that address both adapter-to-system and adapter-to-adapter data transfers under Direct Memory Access (DMA) control. The adapter utilizes the multimaster capability of the Micro Channel bus architecture by taking control of the system unit bus and communicating directly with system memory or with other I/O adapters without interrupting the system unit processor.

With the selection of the appropriate Interface Board, full-duplex rates of up to 64 Kbps running simultaneously on each of eight ports or up to 2.048 Mbps for a single port can be achieved with the IBM Realtime Interface Co-Processor Portmaster Adapter/A. High-speed data rates for multiple ports rely on the use of DMA; two channels are provided for each port. All ports can be programmed for asynchronous, bit synchronous, or character synchronous protocols, using either DMA or interrupt mode.

Timer support is also provided. There may be up to 255 software timers set with increments ranging from 5 milliseconds to 327 seconds. A watchdog timer is also provided.

Additional software is required to program the adapter and must be ordered separately. Software support can be provided by IBM Realtime Interface Co-Processor AIX Support for RS/6000 (5696-038).

Cables for connection of I/O devices are also required, and are the responsibility of the customer.

Characteristics:

  • 12.5-MHz Intel 80186 microprocessor
  • Adapter-to-adapter and adapter-to-system Micro Channel bus master support
  • Up to eight serial I/O ports (asynchronous or synchronous) available through a family of Interface Boards and cables
  • Performance up to 64 Kbps full duplex for each of eight ports running concurrently
  • Performance of up to 2.048 Mbps full duplex for single port
  • Dynamically managed adapter storage

  • Identical function and support as existing 16-port Remote Async Node (RAN), feature #8130 or #8134.
  • Operation of 16 to 128 ports by supporting up to 8 RANs (4 per synchronous line) with either a Micro Channel or ISA host adapter.
  • Ability to monitor individual port operation, synchronous line station, and other diagnostics from front panel.
  • Built-in diagnostics can test ports independent of RS/6000 host.
  • Full modem control supports the following interface signals: TxD, RxD, RTS, CTS, DSR, DCD, DTR, RI.
  • The same RJ-45 to DB-25 Converter Cable (feature #8133 -- quantity four per order) currently used on the existing RANs can be used to attach devices having a DB-25 connector to the Remote Async Nodes.
  • Individual ports support a maximum EIA-232 distance of 62 meters (200 feet).
  • Use of the same cabling from host to RAN and RAN to RAN: feature #8131 (4.5 meter), feature #8132 (23 cm) or customer supplied cables.
  • Location of RAN up to 330 meters from the host using standard shielded 8-wire twisted pair cabling.

(#9216) IBM SCSI-2 Fast/Wide Adapter/A Specify

(For IBM US, No Longer Available as of November 16, 1999)

The IBM SCSI-2 Fast/Wide Adapter/A is a dual-ported fast (10 Mhz) and wide (2 bytes wide) SCSI-2 Micro Channel Adapter that can provide synchronous SCSI bus data rates of up to 20 megabytes per second. It provides high-performance attachment to single-ended (SE) SCSI disks, CD-ROMs, tape devices, read/write (R/W) optical devices, and storage subsystems. The maximum data rate is dependent on the maximum data rate of the devices.

The IBM SCSI-2 Fast/Wide Adapter/A has one internal SE port and one external SE port. Each SE port is capable of addressing up to seven SE SCSI devices. The number of physical devices attached to each port is limited by SCSI bus cabling restrictions. The internal port of this adapter supports either 8-bit or 16-bit devices via a 8-bit or 16-bit connector. Only one of these two connectors may be used at one time. (Devices of different bus attachment widths cannot be connected/used at the same time.) External cabling may be up to 6 meters (19.6 ft) when attached to the 9334-010 or 9334-500, 3 meters when attached to anything else and is supplied by the attaching device.

Characteristics:

  • Controller conforms to ANSI Doc X3T9.2/86-109 rev 10h
