PowerKVM

IBM PowerKVM provides server virtualization based on open source Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) Linux technology. The PowerKVM virtualization technology enables the sharing of real compute, memory, and I/O resources through server virtualization. These virtual resources are used by virtual machines running on the PowerKVM virtualized server.

Server virtualization with PowerKVM enables optimization and overcommitment of resources like CPU and memory. Customers can achieve superior agility, flexibility, and resource utilization, resulting in reduced cost through scale economies. PowerKVM provides the ability to move VMs and workloads by using Live Migration without taking application downtime, increasing overall availability and flexibility. The solution leverages existing Linux administration skills for virtualization administration and open administration tools like OpenStack to potentially reduce the overall cost of operating and owning this virtualization solution. PowerKVM also includes a local graphical virtualization administration tool called Kimchi that greatly simplifies initial setup and basic virtualization operation.

Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability

Top rule

Reliability, fault tolerance, and data correction

The S822LC servers are bringing POWER8 processor and memory RAS functionality into a highly competitive cloud data centre with Open Source Linux technology as 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 operation without requiring a reboot. The L3 cache has the ability to dynamically substitute a spare bit-line for a faulty bit-lane, allowing an entire faulty "column" of cache, impacting multiple cache lines, to be repaired. An uncorrectable error detected in these caches can also trigger a purge and delete of cache lines. This results in no loss of operation if the cache lines contained data unmodified from what was stored in system memory.

The memory subsystem has proactive memory scrubbing to 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 prevents an uncorrectable error in memory or cache from immediately causing a machine check (MC) with uncorrectable error (UE). The system marks the data such that if the data would ever be read again, it would generate an MC with UE. 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.

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 determine 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 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
  • Trouble Shooting 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) 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 OS (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. Multiple firmware images exist in the system, and the backup copy is used if the primary image is corrupted and unusable.

Service interface

The service interface allows the client and the support personnel to communicate with the service support applications in a server using a browser. It delivers a clear, concise view of available service applications. The Service Interface allows the support client to manage system resources and service information in an efficient and effective way.

Different service interfaces are used, depending on the state of the system, hypervisor, and operating environment. The primary service interfaces are:

  • Service Processor: Ethernet Service Network with IPMI version 2.0
  • Service indicator LEDs: System attention and system identification (front and back)
  • Host operating system: Command-line interface

Concurrent maintenance

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

  • Drives in the front bay
  • Power supplies
  • Fans

Error handling and reporting

In the event of system hardware or environmentally induced failure, the system error capture capability systematically analyzes the hardware error signature to determine the cause of failure. The CEC recoverable errors are handled through the CEC diagnostics capability in a Linux application and generates a system event log (SEL). There is also an eSEL that contains extra FFDC from the Hostboot, OCC, and OPAL subsystems that is associated with each SEL.

For system checkstop errors, the On Chip Controller (OCC) collects FIR data to PNOR and hostboot CEC diagnostics creates a SEL based on the FIR data in PNOR. When the system can be successfully restarted either manually or automatically, or if the system continues to operate, the host Linux OS can monitor the SELs on the service processor with the IPMI tool. Hardware and software failures are recorded in the SELs and can be retrieved through the IPMI interface. There is a plan to report SELs in the system log of the operating system.

The system has the ability to report errors associated with PCIe adapters/ devices as well.

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 8335 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.

(#ECW0) - Optical Wrap Plug

A wrap plug is a small connector designed to perform a diagnostic test called a loopback test. This wrap plug is inserted into a SR optical port on a PCIe Fibre Channel adapter or a SR or LR optical port on a PCIe Ethernet adapter

This is a multi-mode LC fibre optic wrap plug with an inside/ outside optics diameter of 50/125. Its IBM part number as of early 2016 is 12R9314. An earlier equivalent function IBM part number which is no longer shipped is 11P3847.

It is strongly recommended that Fibre Channel adapters (HBAs) fill any empty adapter ports with a wrap plug. There is no technical issue leaving a port empty. However, filling all ports with a cable to a device/switch or with a wrap plug can speed the booting/IPLing of a partition and can avoid error messages uselessly pointing to a planned empty port.

There is no technical issue leaving an Ethernet port empty. Whether an Ethernet port is empty or contains a wrap plug should not impact boot/IPL time or impact empty-port messages.

(#EJ1K) - PCIe3 LP CAPI NVMe Flash Accelerator Adapter with 1.92 TB Flash storage

(No longer available as of April 24, 2020)

Accelerator for low latency connection using CAPI (Coherent Accelerator Processor Interface). The feature ships a PCIe Gen3 adapter with an FPGA and 1.92 TB of low write latency, nonvolatile flash memory. The adapter physically is a half length x8 adapter, but requires a x16 PCIe CAPI-capable Gen3 slot in the system unit. The system connects to the FPGA using the CAPI interface. The FPGA connects to the flash memory using NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory express) which is a high performance software interface to read/ write this flash memory.

The 1.92 TB of flash memory consists of two 960 GB M.2 NVMe modules mounted on the card. These modules are not removable. Each of the modules is treated as a separate LUN. The adapter card is designed for read intensive workloads with light write activity. Approximately 1,370 TB of data can be written over the life of each of the 960 GB M.2 NVMe modules. There is a "fuel gauge" function provided as part of Linux utilities enabling users to view remaining write capacity on each of the modules. If the maximum write capability is achieved, the adapter's replacement or any NVMe M.2 module's replacement is not covered under IBM warranty or maintenance.

Limitation: Concurrent add, remove or replacement of this adapter is not supported.

  • Attributes required:

    Must be placed in a POWER8 CAPI-capable x16 PCIe3 slot. Requires a CAPI enablement feature code on the server.

  • Minimum required: 0
  • Maximum allowed: 1 (Initial order maximum: 1)
  • Limitation: Concurrent add, remove or replacement of this adapter is not supported.
  • OS level required:
