  • Processing Growth

    The standard PowerPC 604* processor rated at 112MHz can be replaced with either one or two dual processor cards for two-way or four-way multiprocessing. Or for even greater performance, one or two 187MHz PowerPC* 604e dual processor cards may be obtained for two-way or four- way multiprocessing.

  • Shared Resources

    The PowerPC microprocessors share a common, hierarchical memory and utilize a single image of the function-rich AIX Version 4 operating system. By efficiently sharing resources, this server has the speed and data traffic flow required for processing commercial applications.

  • Availability and Reliability

    IBM* SystemGuard, an integrated diagnostic service processor, continuously monitors system operations, allows for local and remote diagnostics, and supports processor reconfiguration in case of errors.

  • Ample Expansion Room

    The standard configuration includes 2.2GB SCSI-2 internal disk, 8X CD-ROM, 3.5-inch diskette drive, five available Micro Channel expansion slots, and six available disk/media bays. Add up to four optional Model G02 Expansion Cabinets, for six additional disk/media bays per cabinet (a total of 24 bays)

    For increased flexibility, you can mix and match SCSI-2 and Serial Storage Architecture (SSA) disk drive types.

  • Outstanding Scalability

    Modular design makes it easy to plug in new cards and disk drives. Upgrading the processor, memory, and I/O adapters, or adding storage capacity, is easy and can be accomplished with minimal disruption.

Description

A flexible entry-level SMP, the Model G40 server features one-way, two-way, or four-way processing. It is available with one, two or four 112MHz PowerPC 604 processors with 128MB to 1GB of shared memory, 16KB data and 16KB instruction Level 1 (L1) cache per processor, and 512KB Level 2 (L2) cache per processor or with two or four 187MHz PowerPC 604e processors with 128MB to 1GB of shared memory, 32KB data and 32KB instruction L1 cache per processor, and 2MB L2 cache per processor.

The Model G40 has a 1-2 user, full function AIX Version 4.1.5 or Version 4.2.1 package included at no additional charge.

An innovative nonblocking data crossbar switch helps speed memory to processor interaction. This mainframe-class technology, along with robust memory subsystem bandwidth of up to 1.8GB/second, helps break down typical performance bottlenecks and supplies the efficiency and processor speed required for commercial applications.

The Model G40 includes a standard 2.2GB SCSI-2 Fast/Wide disk drive which can be expanded to up to 13.5GB of internal storage through use of the three available disk/media bays. If your needs continue to grow, you can add external storage for up to 1.3TB (terabytes) of SCSI-2 or 1.7TB of SSA disk storage.

In addition to the popular and widely used SCSI-2 interface, the Model G40 supports the SSA storage interface. SSA disks deliver outstanding performance for transaction-intensive applications (up to four times data transfer rates of SCSI-2) and offer redundancy features to keep your data safe.

To protect your business-critical operations, the Model G40 includes IBM SystemGuard, a built-in diagnostic service processor that sets a standard for reliability in this price class. The service processor continuously monitors the G40 and allows local or remote operation. It performs routine system service operations, such as powering the system on and off, running service diagnostics, and providing console support. If the service processor finds a problem, it attempts to execute the necessary steps to automatically restore the system. If, for some reason, the system is unable to restart itself, SystemGuard can automatically call IBM Service.

For maximum high availability and horizontal growth, you can cluster the G40 with other RS/6000 models. The RS/6000 HACMP (High Availability Cluster Multiprocessing) software has been recognized by D.H. Brown as the leading UNIX cluster solution.

SMP Technology

Design: The RS/6000's SMP design incorporates multiple PowerPC processors sharing a single common memory and single copy of the AIX Version 4.1.4 and 4.2 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 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 helps to increase 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 outstanding 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 Availability and Serviceability (RAS)

IBM continues to apply RAS experience to the IBM RS/6000 Servers from many decades of building mission critical mainframe computers RAS characteristics such as error detection, fault tolerance, reliable hardware components, high availability, fault management, concurrent or on-line diagnostics, which were available only on mainframe computers in the past, are now implemented in SMP RS/6000 Servers.

RAS is an integral part of the SMP RS/6000 and AIX Version 4 design philosophy. RAS affects the way that IBM can offer service on SMP RS/6000 products to keep systems operational. In IBM, RAS is integrated into all aspects of hardware design, programming support, manufacturing quality, application system design, service and service support. Its purpose is to help assure that the IBM product is operational when need it, reliably performs the job, handles the occasional failure in a nondisruptive fashion, is repaired quickly and competently, and allows resumption operations with a minimum of inconvenience.

Reliability, Fault Tolerance, and Data Integrity

  • 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 service processor, which will enable remote operation of the system, remote power-on/power-off, running of diagnostics, 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.

    When talking about Reliability and Serviceability, one must not forget the important part played by AIX Version 4 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.

  • The reliability of SMP RS/6000 systems starts with reliable components, devices and sub-systems. During the design and development process, all sub-systems go through rigorous verification and integration testing process. During system manufacturing, all systems go through testing and "system run-in" process to help ensure that any potential early life hardware failures are detected and removed in the factory.

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

  • Disk mirroring and disk controller duplexing capability are also provided by AIX.

  • Journaled File System maintains file system consistency and prevents data loss when the system is abnormally halted.

Availability and Fault Management

Fault Prevention

  • Power-On Test check processors, memory and associated hardware, that is required for proper booting of the operating system, every time the Server is powered on.

Fault Monitoring

  • IBM's family of SMP RS/6000 system Servers includes a service processor called SystemGuard, as a standard feature. SystemGuard continually monitors the hardware as well as the operating system. If, for instance, a CPU were to fail, the service processor is designed to detect this, reboot itself automatically and run without the failed CPU. Likewise, if there was a memory error that could be corrected, the service processor is designed to detect this, reboot itself automatically and run without the bad memory component.

  • Temperature monitoring to provide orderly system shutdown when operating temperature exceeds the critical level.

  • Fan speed monitoring.

  • DC voltage monitoring to provide orderly system shutdown when DC voltages are out of operational specification.

  • AC power loss sensing to provide orderly system shutdown.

  • Disk fault tracking which can alert the system administrator of an impending disk failure before it impacts customer operation.

  • AIX log facility where hardware and software failures are recorded and analyzed (by Error Log Analysis (ELA) routine) to provide warning to the system administrator on the causes of system problems. This also enables IBM service representatives to bring along needed replacement hardware components when a service call is placed, thus minimizing system repair time.

Availability Enhancement

  • On-line (Concurrent) Diagnostics with Error Log Analysis and Service Aids which allow administrators or IBM Service Representatives to diagnose potential system malfunction without interrupting end-user operation

  • Auto-restart option to automatically reboot system following an unrecoverable software error.

  • Ability to automatically reboot system following a software hang, hardware failure or environmental-induced (thermal or power) failure.

High Availability

HACMP configuration provides a high availability solution which protects end users from most hardware and software system failures.

Serviceability

  • The IBM SMP RS/6000 system Servers have been built to be easily upgraded. The packaging is designed to permit 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.

  • SystemGuard allows diagnostic and maintenance to be performed either locally or remotely. This is especially important to customers that may not have personnel with computer skills at the remote sites. The IBM SystemGuard processor makes it possible for the system to be managed from a central location. The SMP RS/6000 Servers can even be set up to automatically call an IBM Service Support Center if they fail to boot successfully.

    SystemGuard provides the capability for support personnel to remotely login to a system to review error logs, perform remote maintenance, ability to remotely reset, boot and diagnose the system via a phone line.

    In addition, the SystemGuard processor operates on its own power boundary, making it possible to work on the system even if the system is powered off.

    The Main features of the SystemGuard are:

    • Initialization process flow management

    • Local as well as remote control of the system (power-on/off, diagnostics, reconfiguration, maintenance)

    • Console mirroring to make remote actions visible and controllable by the customer.

    • Dial-out to a customer central site or IBM support center in case of system boot failure.

    • Run-Time Surveillance

  • SystemGuard controls the Power On (PON) test and the loading of AIX, runs the programs used from the STANDBY and the MAINTENANCE MENUs.

  • Off-line test under the control of the MAINTENANCE MENU enables the servicer or the remote center to run off-line test in a controlled and interactive mode.

  • The diagnostics consist of Stand-alone Diagnostics and Online Diagnostics.

    • Stand-alone Diagnostics are resident on removable media. They must be booted or mounted before they can be run. If booted, they have no access to the AIX Error Log or the AIX Configuration Data. However, if mounted, they have access to the AIX Error Log or the AIX Configuration Data.

    • Online Diagnostics, when installed, are resident with AIX on the disk or Server. They can be booted in single user mode (referred to as service mode), run in maintenance mode (referred to as maintenance mode), or run concurrently (referred to as concurrent mode) with other applications. They have access to the AIX Error Log and the AIX Configuration Data.

      • Service Mode allows checking of all the system devices and features

      • Concurrent Mode allows the normal system functions to continue while selected resources are being checked.

      • Maintenance Mode allows checking of most system resources

Product positioning

The Model G40 is the entry member of the RS/6000 SMP server family. It replaces the G30 and boosts relative OLTP performance for a four-way system by as much as 85% at a lower price. In addition to offering significantly better price/performance than its predecessor, it has more memory to handle large transaction workloads. The G40 is an excellent choice for a departmental or small enterprise server with performance options of one-way, two-way, or four-way processing with two processor alternatives. However, it should be noted that the Model F50 provides even better prices, performance and expandability.

This section provides details on the contents of the G40 model conversion shipment group and the additional features you will need to order or have available before performing the upgrade. Also, it discusses which existing features are supported and offers several options for using existing memory when upgrading to the G40.

What is contained in the model conversion shipment group? The upgrades to the Model G40 contain the following items:

  • Chassis with customer's existing serial number
  • One internal 4-drop SCSI cable (#9440)
  • New labels
  • Installation instructions
  • New diagnostics
  • New publications

Your existing supported disk, media devices, and adapters can be transferred to the new Model G40 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 G40 at the conclusion of the upgrade.

These items must be installed or available with the upgrade:

(1) One PowerPC dual processor card -- either 604e 187MHz (#5306) or 604 112MHz (#5303).

(2) One additional PowerPC dual processor card -- either 604e 187MHz (#5304) or 604 112MHz (#5301), for 380/390 and 39H to G40 upgrades.

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

  • G series memory card with a minimum of 64 MB of memory
  • SCSI-2 Fast/Wide Adapter
  • CD-ROM drive
  • 2 GB of 3.5-inch 8-bit or 16-bit SCSI-2 disk drives (one-inch form factor)

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 G40. 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. IBM will exchange, at a reduced fee, Uni memory for equal and or greater capacity SMP memory. (Uni memory 4MB, 8MB, 16MB does not apply).

G40 Memory Feature Exchange

Hardware requirements

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

Software requirements

Customers ordering the new IBM 604-based SMP systems can order either AIX V4.1 or AIX V4.2. Customers ordering AIX V4.2 may want to refer to the AIX V4.2. Announcement Letter (296-124). For more information on LPPs, customers can refer to the "AIX LPP Roadmap", available from their local IBM representative, or from the World Wide Web page:

http://www.austin.ibm.com/software/Apps/LPPmap.html
 

The majority of the more than 10,000 existing AIX 3.2.5-based applications are expected to be binary compatible with AIX Version 4. 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 Version 4. 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 Version 4-compatible.

Feature descriptions

The following is a list of all feature codes in numeric order.

Attributes, as defined in the following feature descriptions, state the interaction of requirements among features.

Minimums and maximums are the absolute limits for a single feature without regard to interaction with other features. The maximum valid quantity for MES orders may be different than for initial orders. The maximums listed below refer to the largest quantity of these two possibilities.

The order type defines if a feature is orderable only on initial orders, only on MES orders, on both initial and MES orders, or if a feature is supported on a model due to a model conversion. Supported features cannot be ordered on the converted model.

(#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.

(#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 (see "Limitations" section of the sales manual for maximum limits per adapter). 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. For EMEA customers, cables are available from Montpellier through CE offerings.

(#7002) IBM Realtime Interface Co-Processor: Multiport/2 Adapter (.5MB)

The IBM Realtime Interface Co-Processor Multiport/2 adapter has been designed to function as a subsystem to offload tasks such as communications control, data/protocol conversions, and non-standard device interfaces from the host. The adapter features 512 Kb of user storage, seven selectable interrupt levels, nine programmable hardware timers, watchdog timer, and watchdog timer status-indicator.

With attachment of the appropriate Interface Board, ports 0 and 1 can operate at speeds up to 38,400 bps using Direct Memory Access (DMA). One port can operate at 38,400 bps full duplex while a second is operating at a maximum of 19,200 bps full duplex. All eight ports may be operated concurrently at 9.6 Kbps. The first two ports can be programmed for asynchronous, bit synchronous, and character synchronous protocols, using either DMA or interrupt mode, whereas the remaining ports are asynchronous using interrupt mode.

The Co-Processor's memory is dual-ported. Communications between the Co-Processor and the RS/6000 are done via I/O ports and shared memory. Communications are synchronized by interrupts between the Co-Processor and the system unit (interrupt levels are selectable).

Timer support is also provided. There may be up to 255 software timers set within increments ranging from 5 milliseconds to 327 seconds. The watchdog timer is used to signal an error condition should the Co-Processor fail.

(#8128) 128-Port Asynchronous Controller

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

The 128-Port Async Controller subsystem provides attachment for a high concentration of asynchronous lines (up to 128) from a single Micro Channel slot. Two synchronous channels link the adapter to a maximum of eight 16-Port Remote Async Nodes (FC 8130-US and Canada only; FC 8134-World Trade only); up to four 16-Port Remote Async Nodes can be linked to each synchronous channel. This configuration provides the ability to attach up to 128 EIA-232 devices per adapter.

One 4.5-meter (15-foot) cable (FC 8131 or customer-supplied cables) is available to connect the adapter to the first Remote Async Node on each synchronous channel. Additional Remote Async Nodes may be connected to each synchronous channel in a "daisy chain" configuration, using either the 4.5-meter (15-foot) cable (FC 8131) or the 23-cm. (9-inch) cable (FC 8132), the shorter cable being recommended when stacking Remote Async Nodes. Customer-supplied cables may also be substituted.

The RJ-45 to DB-25 Converter Cable (FC 8133--quantity four per order) can be used to attach devices having a DB-25 connector to the Remote Async Nodes. One RJ-45 wrap plug and two Controller Line Terminator plugs are included with each adapter order.
