Overview
Bottom rule

Multiple new I/O enhancements are available for Power Systems servers.

The PCIe2 1.8 GB Cache RAID SAS Adapter Tri-Port 6 Gb (#5913) is a large-cache PCIe SAS adapter that provides high-performance capabilities for large quantities of SSDs or HDDs. It is the most advanced SAS controller ever offered, allowing clients to reduce the number of PCI slots required and thus help minimize the overall I/O configuration. To support its higher-speed interface and high-density ports, new 6 Gb SAS AA, AT, YO, and X cables are also introduced. The adapter is supported by IBM i 6.1 with machine code 6.1.1, or later, as well as multiple AIX® and Linux levels.

New PCIe I/O adapters are announced for the Power® 710, 720, 730, 740, 770, 780, and 795, including:

  • The 2 Port Async EIA-232 PCIe Adapter (#5289) for full-height slots and (#5290) for low-profile PCIe slots. The 2-port adapter is a lower-cost option for AIX and Linux clients compared to the functionally equivalent 4-port Async EIA-232 PCIe Adapter (#5785 and #5277).
  • Two new Ethernet 4-port adapters for Linux provide additional capabilities and speed options. They are supported in low-profile Gen2 slots on the Power 710, 720, 730, and 740.
    • The PCIe2 LP 4-Port 10 GbE & 1 GbE SFP+ Copper & RJ45 Adapter (#5279) has two 10 Gb copper ports and two 1 Gb UTP ports.
    • PCIe2 LP 4-Port 10 GbE & 1 GbE SR & RJ45 Adapter (#5280) has two 10 Gb Optical ports and two 1 Gb UTP ports.
  • Two new Ethernet features for full high equivalents of the existing low-profile Gen2 2-port 10 Gb Adapters
    • PCIe2 2-Port 10 GbE SR Adapter (#5287) has two optical ports -- same as the feature 5284 low-profile adapter.
    • PCIe2 2-Port 10 GbE SFP+Copper Adapter (#5288) has two twinax ports -- same as the feature 5286 low-profile adapter.

    The PCIe2 8x 4-port Fibre Channel Adapter (#5729) is a new PCIe Gen2 adapter. It provides four 8 Gb Fibre Channel ports and doubles both the number of ports and the total bandwidth available on a Fibre Channel adapter. With the additional ports and bandwidth, clients can increase virtualization and consolidation of Fibre Channel configurations. The adapter is supported in the refreshed Power 720, 740, 770, and 780 system units (8202-E4C, 8205-E6C, 9117-MMC, and 9179-MHC) and is supported in their full high Gen2 PCIe slots.

  • 283 GB and 300 GB capacity points are added to the 15, 000 rpm SFF disk drive options, doubling the 15,000 rpm capacity previously available for POWER7® clients with SFF bays. Four feature numbers are used to indicate whether the drive is 283 GB or 300 GB and whether it has a SFF-1 (Gen1) or SFF-2 (Gen2 for the EXP24S) carrier:
    • 283 GB for IBM i in SFF-1 bays (#1948)
    • 300 GB for AIX/Linux in SFF-1 bays (#1953)
    • 283 GB for IBM i in SFF-2 bays (#1879)
    • 300 GB for AIX/Linux in SFF-2 bays (#1880)
  • The 1 TB Removable Disk Drive Cartridge (#EU01) provides a RDX disk drive in a rugged cartridge to be used in the USB Internal and External Docking Station for Removable RDX Disk Drive (#1103, #1104, or #1123). One terabyte is uncompressed. With typical 2X compression, capacity would be 2 TB compression/decompression is provided by the AIX or Linux operating system, and not the drive itself.
  • IBM is now offering field upgrade of the 7042-CR6 HMC to the 7042-CR6 SDMC. This will allow customers to transition to SDMC at significantly lower cost by reusing existing HMC hardware. To facilitate this upgrade, feature 0963 is now available via MES order. Ordering feature number 0963 will initiate shipment of SDMC code on DVD media and automatically add 4 GB memory (#1946) and a 500 GB HDD (#1998) to the order to meet minimum SDMC hardware requirements. Clients may install these features or they can be installed by an IBM service representative at additional charge. The HMC-to-SDMC upgrade is supported when attaching to Power System servers that are available before October 2011.

Description
Bottom rule

The PCIe2 1.8 GB Cache RAID SAS Adapter Tri-port 6 Gb (#5913) is an excellent solution for higher-performance I/O configurations of SAS HDDs or SSDs (3.5-inch or SFF). Feature 5913 is a single-wide, full-height short Gen2 PCIe adapter with three 6 Gb Mini-SAS HD (high-density) connectors that provide up to a 4 GBps throughput.

Unlike previous large-cache SCSI or SAS adapters, batteries are not used in the feature 5913 adapter to protect cache contents in case of a power failure. Built-in flash memory protection with capacitors is used instead. This avoids the need to change batteries as they age as in previous adapters.

The adapter can be placed in POWER7 system units in full-height PCIe slots or can be placed in a 12X PCIe I/O drawer (#5802, #5803, #5873, and #5877) on POWER7 or POWER6 servers. It can control SAS drives located in a 12X PCIe I/O drawer (#5802, #5803) or in a EXP24S I/O drawer (#5887) or in an EXP12S I/O drawer (#5886). When controlling SAS drives in a feature 5802 or 5803 12X PCIe I/O drawer, the feature 5913 adapters must be located in that I/O drawer.

A pair of the adapters works together to provide additional performance, redundancy, and write-cache protection. A single adapter configuration on a server is not supported. A nonpaired PCIe SAS RAID indicator (#5924) is required by IBM Manufacturing to identify an AIX high-availability configuration when the pairing happens across two servers.

When creating a pair of the adapters, the adapters can be in different enclosures if controlling drives in an EXP12S or EXP24S I/O drawer. For example, for redundancy, one adapter could be in a system unit and the other adapter could be in a 12X PCIe I/O drawer or they could be in different PCIe I/O drawers. When controlling SAS drives in a feature 5802 or 5803 12X PCIe I/O drawer, both adapters must be located in that I/O drawer.

To provide the highest bandwidth between two paired feature 5913 adapters, a SAS Adapter-to-Adapter (AA) cable is used. Through this cable, the two adapters maintain cross awareness of each other and protect the write-cache contents. Four cable lengths are available:

  • 3 m (#5915)
  • 6 m (#5916)
  • 1.5 m (#5917)
  • 0.6 m (#5918)

The top Mini-SAS HD connector on each card is used for this AA cable. Only when all three HD connectors are needed for controlling SAS drives is the AA cable not required. With all three connectors attaching SAS drives, the communication between the adapter pair is performed through the SAS fabric via the I/O drawer and cabling.

Note that when the feature 5913 adapters are running drives located in a 12X PCIe I/O drawer (#5802 and #5803), the third HD SAS port must connect to an AA cable (#5915, #5916, #5917, and #5918) and cannot be used to attach another I/O drawer.

Up to 72 HDDs can be attached to a pair of 5913 features. This configuration of 72 can be accomplished with three feature 5887 EXP24S I/O Drawers or also with six feature 5886 EXP12S I/O drawers. Up to 50 HDDs can be attached with one feature 5887 EXP24S I/O drawer and one feature 5803 12X PCIe I/O drawer. Up to 42 HDDs can be attached with one feature 5887 EXP24S I/O drawer and one feature 5802 12X PCIe I/O drawer.

SSD maximums per feature I/O drawer with the support of a pair of feature 5913 adapters are as follows:

                       Gen2
         5802   5803   5887
Config   Mode2  Mode2  Mode1  5886

SSD      18     26     24     8
  • Up to two feature 5887 drawers can be attached, with a combined SSD total of 26.
  • If attaching two feature 5886 drawers with SSDs to one pair of feature 5913 adapters, the maximum combined SSD total is 16 (feature 5886 drawers must be on separate feature 5913 ports and not cascaded).
  • If running SSDs in both sides of a feature 5802 drawer in mode 2, the maximum SSDs per feature 5913 adapter pair is 18.
  • If running SSDs in both sides of a feature 5803 drawer in mode 2, the maximum SSDs per feature 5913 adapter pair is 26.
  • If running SSDs in one side of a feature 5802 or 5803 drawer in mode 2, and running SSD in a feature 5887 drawer, the maximum SSDs per feature 5913 adapter pair is 26.

A single pair of 5913 adapter features can attach both SSDs and HDDs; however, each connector has all HDDs or all SSDs. In a mixed HDD/SSD environment, the maximum number of SSDs is 26 with a feature 5803 12X PCIe I/O drawer or with two or three EXP24S I/O drawers. On a three EXP24S drawer configuration on a pair of feature 5913 adapters, the maximum combined number of drives with 24 SSDs is 72 (48 HDDs) or the maximum combined number of drives with 26 SSDs is 50 (24 HDDs). A maximum of two pairs of HD SAS ports of the feature 5913 pair can attach SSDs while the third HD SAS connector is used for an I/O drawer with HDDs or for an Adapter-to-Adapter (AA) SAS cable.

A maximum of eight feature 5913 adapters can be placed in the feature 5802 or 5877 12X PCIe I/O drawer, but note that the aggregate bandwidth of the feature 5802 or 5877 would not be adequate for maximum feature 5913 quantity performance. This "over configuring" may be desirable for configurations with large amounts of redundancy required.

A maximum of 16 feature 5913 adapters can be placed in the feature 5803 or 5873 12X PCIe I/O drawer, but there is a maximum of eight per each half of the feature 5803 or 5873. The same maximum performance consideration applies to feature 5803 and 5873 as applies to feature 5802 and 5877. The aggregate bandwidth of the feature 5803 or 5873 would not be adequate for maximum feature 5913 quantity.

A maximum of two 5913 adapters can be placed in a Power 720, 740, 770, or 780 system unit or processor enclosure. For example, a Power 740 has a maximum of two 5913 adapters and a three-processor enclosure Power 770 has a maximum of six 5913 adapters. Though the 5913 adapter is a Gen2 adapter, it can be placed in any of these identified PCIe slots.

If a 5913 adapter is placed in the Power 720 or Power 740 system unit, the fan speed needs to be increased somewhat to provide better cooling. This is done by switching the unit from acoustic mode to nonacoustic mode. Feature 5913 is only supported in the rack configuration Power 720 or 740 and is not supported in the tower configuration due to this acoustic consideration.

The 5913 adapter is not supported in the Power 750 or 755 system unit, but can be placed in a feature 5802 or 5877 I/O drawer attached to the Power 750.

There are only full-height PCIe Gen1 slots on POWER6 and POWER7 servers to support the full-height PCIe2 1.8 GB Cache RAID SAS Adapter (#5913), but performance is expected to be very good. With full-height PCIe Gen2 slots, the additional architectural bandwidth of a PCIe Gen2 slot allows the feature 5913 adapter to provide a modest increase in overall bandwidth and would not be expected to increase the speed of individual I/O operations.

The feature 5913 adapter is supported on the POWER6 servers when located in 12X PCIe I/O Drawers (#5802, #5803, #5873, and #5877). Feature 5913 adapters placed in POWER6 system units have not been tested and are therefore not supported. Feature 5913 is supported for the full set of SAS adapter functions on POWER6 servers with the exception of controlling boot drives or load source drives. On POWER6 servers, previously offered PCIe and PCI-X SAS adapters continue to offer boot drive and load source drive support.

Specific SAS cables are required to attach to the 5913 adapters Mini-SAS HD connectors. To attach to the SAS drives in a feature 5802 or 5803 12X PCIe I/O drawer, 0.6 meter HD SAS AT cables are used (#3689). To attach to a feature 5886 EXP12S I/O Drawer, HD SAS X cables are used (#3454, #3455, or #3456) with lengths of 3, 6, or 10 meters. To attach to a feature 5887 EXP24S I/O Drawer, HD SAS YO cables are used (#3450, #3451, #3452, or #3453) with lengths of 1.5, 3, 6, or 10 meters.

The 5913 adapter supports a full set of protection options for its SAS drives. For AIX, Linux, and VIOS, this includes RAID 0, 5, 6, and 10, as well as operating system mirroring. For IBM i, this includes RAID 5 or operating system mirroring. Hot spare is also supported for AIX, IBM i, Linux, and VIOS. RAID sets with up to a maximum of 32 devices can be configured, depending on the environment.

For additional performance, the feature 5913 pairs support Active/Active protocols. This means that as long as there are at least two arrays configured per pair of feature 5913 adapters, additional I/O performance is gained by using the bandwidth of both adapters in the pair.

Refer to the feature number description for the operating system level support required.

The SAS drives attached to a pair of 5913 features must use 528-byte sector formatting. The 512-byte sector (JBOD) formatted drives are not supported except when initially formatting to 528 byte. Thus any AIX, Linux, and VIOS drives that are not already formatted to 528-byte sectors will need to be reformatted to 528 byte before being added to a feature 5913 RAID array. Note that IBM i supports 528-byte sector drives only.

Additional protection capabilities called T10 Data Integrity Function (DIF) are architected into the 5913 adapter. As a result, the formatting of HDD/SSD arrays on a 5913 adapter differ slightly compared to how they would be formatted on older SAS adapters such as the 5904, 5906, or 5908 adapter or 5805, 5903, or 527x adapter.

The 528-byte formatted SAS drives or arrays can usually be easily moved off older adapters to the 5913 adapter and will automatically be converted by the 5913 adapter. The word "usually" is used because AIX, Linux, and VIOS drives that were placed in an array that did not use the default 256k stripe size or that were individually included into an existing array will require reformatting before being moved to the 5913 adapter. Also note that moving drives off the 5913 adapter and onto older adapters requires the HDD/SSD drives to be reformatted before being placed on the older adapters.

With the new SAS adapter, two additional no-charge specify codes are available on EXP24S (#5887) to indicate to IBM Manufacturing the mode to which the drawer should be set and the adapter, controller, and cable configuration which will be used. The physical adapters, controllers, and cables must be ordered with their own chargeable feature numbers.

Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability (RAS)

The reliability of the IBM Power Systems starts with components, devices, and subsystems that are designed to be fault-tolerant. POWER7 uses lower-voltage technology in the processor SCMs that improves reliability stacked latches to reduce soft error (SER) susceptibility. 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 processor and memory subsystem contains a number of features designed to avoid or correct environmentally induced, single-bit, intermittent failures as well as handle solid faults in components, including selective redundancy to tolerate certain faults without requiring an outage or parts replacement.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
