Note: If a rack is wanted, it must be ordered as an MTM rack on initial system orders. If the rack is included on the same system order, it will be shipped at the same time in the same shipment, but in separate packing material. IBM does not offer IBM Manufacturing rack integration of the server into the rack before shipping at this time.

Processor modules

A minimum of one processor module is required with up to eight feature EKP4 processor cores or ten feature EKP5 processor cores allowed. All processor cores are activate. The system assembly that is selected, either 1S or 2S, determines which processor is required.

No processor activation features are used or orderable on the 8001-22C. All processor cores/"n-ways" are always fully activated.
Note: The mixing of different processor features on the same system is not allowed.

System memory

With the 1-Socket assembly, the server has eight memory slots. With the 2-Socket assembly, the server has 16 memory slots. Each memory slot can hold one memory feature. A minimum of eight memory features is required. With 4 GB DIMMs, 32 GB of memory is required. With 8 GB DIMMs, 64 GB of memory is required. With 16 GB DIMMs, 128 GB is required. With 32 GB DIMMs, 256 GB is required.

Memory must be plugged in quads; populating in quads maximizes memory bandwidth.
Note: The mixing of memory features is not allowed.

Plans for future memory upgrades should be taken into account when deciding which memory feature size to use at the time of the initial system order.

DIMM memory features

Feature name   Feature Maximum
               number  quantity
-------------- ------- --------
4 GB 1600 MHz  EKM0    16
8 GB 1600 MHz  EKM1    16
16 GB 1600 MHz EKM2    16
32 GB 1600 MHz EKM3    16

I/O adapters

The system contains the following adapter slots:

  • Two PCIe x16 G3 FH slots, CAPI enabled
  • Two PCIe x8 G3 FH slots, CAPI enabled
  • One PCIe x8 G3 LP slot

Only LP adapters can be placed in LP slots. An x8 adapter can be placed in an x16 slot but an x16 adapter cannot be placed in an x8 slot.

SAS / SATA bays and storage backplane options

S822LC for Big Data for Linux supports two backplanes; the "Direct Attach" (features EKB1 - 1-Socket Fab Assembly or EKB5 - 2-Socket Fab Assembly) and the "NVMe Enabled" (features EKB8 - 1-Socket Fab Assembly or EKB9 - 2-Socket Fab Assembly). Both "Direct Attach" and "NVMe Enabled" backplanes have 12 slots for LFF drive trays, SFF drives can be plugged into converter trays to fit in the LFF slots.

The "Direct Attach" backplane supports SAS or SATA drives only; the mainboard can natively support eight SATA drives (none SAS drives). In order to get 12 SATA drives, a storage adapter (features EKEA , EKEB, or EKEH) need to be plugged; maximum quantity of storage adapters is one, so cables be run from both the storage adapter (for 4 -8 drives) and from the main planar for the balance (for more than 8 SATAs). In order to support any SAS drives with the "Direct Attach" backplane, a storage adapter need to be plugged (features EKEA, EKEB, or EKEH). For storage adapters (features EKAA and EKAH), if second storage adapter is to be used, either unlock kit key (features EKWB or EKWC) must be used. However, the two unlock kit key features are mutually exclusive.

The "NVMe Enabled" backplane allows for more storage device options - it has an onboard LSI expander and can accept up to four NVMe drives (with proper storage controllers). The LSI expander does not communicate to the controller card on the mainboard; therefore, if the S822LC "NVMe Enabled" backplane is selected a storage adapter (features EKEA, EKEH, or EKEB) need to be plugged; because of the LSI expander on the NVMe backplane, one storage adapter communicates to the LSI expander which drives the full suite of twelve SAS or SATA drives. If "NVMe Enabled" backplane is selected, then a PCIe3 NVMe HBA needs to be plugged (features EKEE or EKEG); one PCIe3 2-port NVMe HBA (feature EKEE) supports two NVMe drives and one PCIe3 4-port NVMe HBA (feature EKEG) supports four NVMe drives.

S822LC for Big Data for Linux supports GPU Accelerators: NVIDIA Tesla K80 24 GB (feature EKAJ) or NVIDIA Tesla P100 16 GB (feature EKAZ). The presence of a GPU Accelerator in the "NVMe Enabled" backplane restricts the system to eight drives total, all SAS/SATA drives must be populated in the bottom 2 rows. In this case, only 2 NVMe adapters are allowed and must be plugged into slots 9 &10, sequentially. If any quantity of GPU Accelerators (features EKAJ or EKAZ) are selected in conjunction with "Direct Attach" Fab Assemblies (features EKB1 or EKB5) and no storage adapters are selected (features EKEA, EKEH, or EKEB), the total number of drives should be limited to six. If any quantity of GPU Accelerators (features EKAJ or EKAZ) are selected in conjunction with "Direct Attach" Fab Assemblies (features EKB1 or EKB5) and two SATA Disks (features EKSK or EKSL), the total number of drives should be limited to five (slots 1,2,4,5 & 7).

Power supply

  • Two supplies: 1600 Watt 100-127 or 200-240 V AC (Included in Base)
    Note: If GPUs are used, only 200-240V power source can be used.

Power cords

  • Two identical power cords are required (two 6', 125V, 13 Amp, NEMA5-15P, C13 are included).

Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability

Reliability, fault tolerance, and data correction

The S822LC server brings POWER8 processor and memory RAS functionality into a highly competitive cloud data centre with Open Source Linux technology as the operating system and virtualization. The Open Power Abstraction Layer (OPAL) firmware provides a hypervisor and operating system-independent layer, exploiting the robust error detection and self-healing functions built into the POWER8 processor and memory buffer modules.

The processor address-paths and data-paths are protected with parity or Error Correcting Codes (ECC). The control logic, state machines, and computational units have sophisticated error detection. The processor core soft errors or intermittent errors are recovered with processor instruction retry. Unrecoverable errors are reported as machine check. Errors that affect the integrity of data lead to system check-stop.

The Level 1 (L1) data and instruction caches in each processor core are parity protected and data are stored through to L2 immediately. L1 caches have a retry capability for intermittent errors and a cache set delete mechanism for handling solid failures. The L2 and L3 caches in the POWER8 processor and L4 cache in the memory buffer chip are protected with double-bit detect, single-bit ECC. In addition, a threshold of correctable errors detected on cache lines can result in the data in the cache lines being purged and the cache lines removed from further access without requiring a reboot. An uncorrectable error detected in these caches can also trigger a purge and delete of cache lines. This does not impact the current operation if the cache lines contained data unmodified from what was stored in system memory.

The memory subsystem has proactive memory scrubbing to help prevent accumulation of multiple single-bit errors. The ECC scheme can correct the complete failure of any one memory module within an ECC word. After marking the module as unusable, the ECC logic can still correct single symbol (two adjacent bit) errors. An uncorrectable error of data of any layer of cache up to the main memory is marked to prevent usage of fault data. The processor's memory controller and the memory buffer have retry capabilities for certain fetch and store faults.

Special Uncorrectable Error handling

Special Uncorrectable Error (SUE) handling is designed to prevent an uncorrectable error in memory or cache from immediately causing a machine check with uncorrectable error. The system marks the data such that if the data would ever be read again, it would generate a machine check with uncorrectable error. Termination may be limited to the program or partition or hypervisor owning the data. If the data is referenced by an I/O adapter, it would freeze if data were transferred to an I/O device.

Thermal management, current/voltage monitoring

The On Chip Controller (OCC) monitors various temperature sensors in the processor module, memory modules, and environmental temperature sensors and steers the throttling of processor cores and memory channels should the temperature rise over thresholds defined by the design. The power supplies have their own independent thermal sensors and monitoring.

Power supplies and voltage regulator modules monitor over-voltage, under-voltage, and over-current conditions. They report into a power good tree that is monitored by the Service Processor.

PCI extended error handling

PCI extended error handling (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, enable the device driver to reset it, and continue without a system reboot. For Linux, EEH support extends to the majority of frequently used devices, although some third-party PCI devices may not provide native EEH support.

Chassis policy after input power loss and auto restart after system-check-stop

The boot parameter "chassis policy" controls whether the server returns to the previous state or powers up axiomatically after an input power loss. The system automatically reboots after a system-check-stop, and it is up to the system management software to decide on whether to use the server with potentially fewer resources.

Serviceability

The server is designed for system install and setup, feature install and remove, proactive maintenance, and corrective repair performed by the client:

  • Customer Install and Setup (CSU)
  • Customer Feature Install (CFI)
  • Customer Repairable Units (CRU)

Warranty Service Upgrades are offered for an On Site Repair (OSR) by an IBM System Services Representative (SSR) or by an authorized warranty service provider.

IBM Knowledge Center provides up-to-date documentation to effectively service the system with:

  • Quick Install Guide
  • User's Guide
  • Troubleshooting Guide
  • Boot Configuration Guide

The documentation can be downloaded in PDF format or used on-line with an internet connection.

Service processor

The service processor supports the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI 2.0) and Data Center Management Interface (DCMI 1.5) and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP V2 and V3) for system monitoring and management. The service processor provides platform system functions such as power on/off, power sequencing, power fault monitoring, power reporting, fan/thermal control, fault monitoring, VPD inventory collection, Serial over LAN (SOL), Service Indicator LED management, code update, and event reporting through system event logs (SEL). All SELs can be retrieved either directly from the service processor or from the host operating system (Linux). The service processor monitors the operation of the firmware during the boot process and also monitors the hypervisor for termination. The firmware code update is supported through the service processor and IPMI interface. The firmware image can be updated or flashed, regardless of its current state.

Service interface

The service interface enables the client and the support personnel to communicate with the service support applications in a server by connecting directly or remotely through a web browser or command-line interface. It provides access to various service applications and available actions. The service interface enables client and support personnel to manage system resources, inventory, and service information in an efficient and effective way.

Different service interfaces are used, depending on the state of the system and the task that is being accomplished. The primary service interfaces are:

  • Service processor: Ethernet Service Network with IPMI version 2.0, systems management GUI via web browser
  • Service indicator LEDs: System attention and system identification (front and back)
  • Host operating system: Command-line interface

The primary service applications are:

  • System event logs (SEL)
  • Operating system event logs
  • Sensor status GUI
  • LEDs for problem determination (PD) when next to the system, locally

Concurrent maintenance

The following components can be replaced without powering off the server:

  • Drives in the front bay
  • Power supplies

Error handling and reporting

In the event of a system hardware failure or environmentally induced failure, the system error capture capability systematically analyzes the hardware error signature to help determine the cause of the failure. The processor and memory recoverable errors are handled through Processor Runtime Diagnostics (PRD) in the OPAL layer and generate a SEL. An extended SEL (eSEL) is associated with each SEL. It contains additional First Failure Data Capture (FFDC).

For system check-stop errors, the OCC collects Failure Information Register (FIR) data and saves it in nonvolatile memory. PRD analyses the data upon reboot and creates a SEL and eSEL. The host Linux operating system can monitor the SELs on the service processor with the IPMI tool. Hardware and firmware failures are recorded in the SELs and can be retrieved through IPMI interface. The system has the ability to report errors associated with PCIe adapters/devices through the host operating system.

Warranty and spare parts

The system comes with a three-year warranty on parts. The replacement parts can be ordered through the Advanced Part Exchange Warranty Service.

Feature availability matrix

The following feature availability matrix for MT 8001 uses the letter "A" to indicate features that are available and orderable on the specified models. "S" indicates a feature that is supported on the new model during a model conversion; these features will work on the new model, but additional quantities of these features cannot be ordered on the new model; they can only be removed. "N" indicates that the feature is not supported on the new model and must be removed during the model conversion. As additional features are announced, supported, or withdrawn, this list will be updated. Please check with your Marketing Representative for additional information.

        |2| A = AVAILABLE  S = SUPPORTED
        |2| N = NOT SUPPORTED, MUST BE REMOVED

Feature descriptions


Note: Not all of the following features are available in all countries. Check with your country representative for specific feature availability.

The following is a list of all feature codes in numeric order for the IBM Power Systems 8001 machine type.

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, only left on or removed from the converted model.

(#EKN2) - PCIe3 1.6TB NVMe Flash Adapter 3-DWPD

The PCIe3 1.6 TB NVMe Flash Adapter is a PCI Express (PCIe) generation 3 (Gen3) x4 adapter. The adapter can be used in either a x8 or x16 PCIe (Gen3) slot in the system and uses Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe). NVMe is a high performance software interface that can read/write flash memory. Compared to a SAS or SATA SSD, the NVMe Flash adapter provides more read/write input/output operations per second (IOPS) and larger throughput (Gb/sec). The NVMe Flash Adapter is read intensive and is not designed for high write intensive workloads. At about 8,760 to 17,000 TB of writes to the adapter, it will be at its maximum projected write capability. The nature of the workload has a great impact on the maximum write capacity. If a high percentage of more sequentially oriented writes is used instead of random writes, the maximum write capacity will be closer to the larger value in the range. In the case of a high percentage of random writes, the maximum will be closer to the smaller value in the range. Writes past the adapter's maximum write capacity will continue to work for some period of time, but much more slowly. A Predictive Failure Analysis message will indicate that it is time to replace the adapter if enabled by the system administrator. After the warranty period, if the maximum write capability is achieved, the adapter's replacement is not covered under IBM(R) maintenance. This adapter has protection against single Flash channel failures. To prevent the entire adapter from failing, software RAID should be used. For high value applications where the content in the adapter must be protected, additional NVMe Flash adapters with OS mirroring or software Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) are recommended. This adapter is not supported in the PCIe Gen3 I/O drawer.
