Model abstract A The IBM System p5 and Q deskside and 4U rack-mount server Model 55A gives you new tools for managing your business, greater application flexibility, and innovative technology — all designed to help you become an On Demand Business.
The System p5 is available in 2-and 4-core configurations using one or two 2-core 1. The System p5 Q is available in 4-and 8-core configurations, using one or two 4-core 1. Each processor card has eight DIMM slots. The base 1 GB of main memory can be expanded to 64 GB for faster performance ihm exploitation of bit addressing as used in large database applications. Four of the bays are front-accessible, hot-swap-capable DASD bays in a minimum configuration with an additional four hot-swap-capable DASD bays optional.
Other integrated features include: Deskside or rack-mount lbm configurations 2-core, 4-core, and 8-core SMP design one or two iibm or 4-core processor cards p — 2-core 1. The defaults, if no choice is made, are: Default Configuration 2-core 1. When you purchase an Express Product Offering, you will be entitled to a lower priced AIX 5L or Linux operating system license, or you may choose to purchase the system with no operating system.
Jbm you choose AIX 5L for your lower priced operating system, you can also order Linux but will purchase your Linux subscription at full price versus the reduced price. The converse is true if you choose a Linux subscription as your lower priced operating system. In the case of Linux, only the fist subscription ibmm is lower priced so, for example, additional licenses purchased for Red Hat to run in multiple partitions will be at full price.
You can make changes to the standard features as needed and still qualify for processor entitlements at no additional charge, and a discounted AIX or Linux operating system license. However, selection of total memory or DASD smaller than the totals defined as the minimums disqualifies ibj order as an Express Product Offering.
If any of the features in an Express Product Offering are changed, the Express Product Offering identification feature 93XX will be removed from the order, but you may still qualify for processor activations at no extra charge.

This scalable solution will grow with their business without compromising system affordability. Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability RAS Reliability, fault tolerance, and data integrity The reliability of the System p5 and System p5 Q systems starts with components, devices, and subsystems that are designed to be q fault- tolerant. During the design and development process, subsystems go through rigorous verification and integration testing processes.
During system manufacturing, systems go through a thorough testing process to help ensure the highest level of product quality. The System p and System-p5 Q system 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 will be substantially reduced. ECC also provides double-bit memory error detection that helps protect data integrity in the event of a double-bit memory failure.
System memory also provides 4-bit packet error detection that helps to protect data integrity in the event of a DRAM chip failure.
Disk mirroring and disk controller duplexing are also provided by the AIX operating system. This is supported in software using the md driver. The Journaled File System maintains file system consistency and reduces the ubm of data bim when the system is abnormally halted due to a power failure. EEH-enabled adapters respond to a special data packet generated from the affected PCI slot hardware by calling system firmware, which will examine the affected bus, allow the device driver to reset it, and continue without a system reboot.
Currently, Linux does not support the EEH behavior. In the event of a PCI error under Linux, the system will machine check and a reboot will be required to continue. Memory error correction extensions The standard memory has single-error-correct and double-error-detect ECC circuitry designed to correct single-bit memory failures. The double-bit detection is designed to help maintain data integrity by p505 and reporting multiple errors beyond what the ECC circuitry can correct.
The memory chips are organized such that the failure of any specific memory module only affects a single bit within an ECC word bit scatteringthus allowing for error correction and continued operation in the presence of a complete chip failure Chipkill recovery. The memory also utilizes memory scrubbing and thresholding to determine when spare memory modules, within each bank of memory, if available, should be used to replace ones that have exceeded their threshold value dynamic bit steering.
Redundancy for array self-healing Although the most likely failure event in a processor is a soft single-bit error in one of its caches, other events can occur, and they need to be distinguished from one another. For the L1, L2, and L3 caches and their directories, hardware and firmware keep track of whether permanent errors are being corrected beyond a threshold. If exceeded, a deferred repair error log is created. Additional run-time availability actions, such as CPU vary off 4 or L3 cache line delete, are also initiated.
The steering logic is activated during processor initialization and is initiated by the built- in system-test BIST at power-on time. L3 cache redundancy is implemented at the cache line granularity level. Exceeding correctable error thresholds while running causes invocation of a dynamic L3 cache line delete function.
Service Processor The Service Processor that is standard on the System p5 systems provides the capability to diagnose, check the status of, and sense the operational conditions of a remote system.
Family +01 IBM Power Express
The Service Processor runs on its own power boundary and does not require a system processor to be operational to perform its tasks. The Service Processor supports surveillance of the connection to the HMC and to the system firmware hypervisor.
It also provides several remote power control options, environmental monitoring but only critical errors are supported under Linuxreset and boot features, and remote maintenance and diagnostic functions, including console mirroring. The Service Processor can place calls to report surveillance failures, critical environmental faults, and critical processing faults when the system is not managed by an HMC running Service Focal Point.
Fault monitoring functions BIST built-in self-test and POST power-on self-test check processor, L3 cache, memory, and associated hardware required for proper booting of the operating system, every time the system is powered on. If a noncritical error is detected or if the errors occur in the resources that can be removed from the system configuration, the booting process is designed to proceed to completion. Disk drive fault tracking can alert the system administrator of an impending disk failure before it impacts customer operation.
The AIX or Linux log where hardware and software failures are recorded and analyzed by the Error Log Analysis ELA routine warns the system administrator about the causes of system problems. The Service Processor event log also logs unrecoverable checkstop conditions and forwards them to the Service Focal Point if the system is HMC attached. This also enables IBM service representatives to bring along probable replacement hardware components when a service call is placed,thus minimizing system repair time.
Mutual surveillance The Service Processor monitors the operation of the firmware during the boot process, and also monitors the Hypervisor for termination. Environmental monitoring functions Temperature monitoring increases the fan speed rotation when ambient temperature is above the normal operating range. Temperature monitoring warns the system administrator of potential environmental-related problems for example, air conditioning and air circulation around the system so that appropriate corrective actions can be taken before a critical failure threshold is reached.
It also performs an orderly system shutdown when the operating temperature exceeds the critical level. Fan speed monitoring provides a warning and an orderly system shutdown when the speed is out of operational specification. Voltage monitoring provides warning and an orderly system shutdown when the voltages are out of operational specification.
Error handling and reporting In the unlikely event of system hardware or environmentally induced failure, the system run-time error capture capability systematically analyzes the hardware error signature to determine the cause of failure. When the system can be successfully rebooted either manually or automatically, the error will be reported to the AIX or Linux operating system. Error Log Analysis ELA can be used to display the failure cause and the physical location of the failing hardware.
With the integrated Service Processor, the system has the ability to automatically send out an alert via phone line to a pager or call for service in the event of a critical system failure.
