Overview
Bottom rule

The Power System E850 server offers new levels of performance, price/performance, and function with POWER8 technology for clients using a 4-socket server. The Power E850 server impressively provides up to 48 POWER8 cores, up to 2 TB of DDR3 memory, up to 51 Gen3 PCIe slots, integrated SAS controllers for integrated disk/SSD/DVD bays, and up to over 1,500 SAS bays for disk/SSD with EXP24S I/O drawers.

In addition to extensive hardware configuration flexibility, the Power E850 server offers elastic capacity on demand for both cores and memory, Active Memory Expansion, and Active Memory Mirroring for Hypervisor. The E850 supports AIX and Linux operating systems and PowerVM Standard and Enterprise. The Power System E850 server is a logical follow on to the Power System 750 and 760 servers.

The Power E850 server uses high-performance, enterprise-class 1600 MHz DDR3 memory packaged as CDIMMs with L4 cache. CDIMM features are 16 GB, 32 GB, or 64 GB. A two-processor module configuration provides 16 CDIMM slots. A three-processor module configuration provides 24 CDIMM slots. A four-processor module configuration provides 32 CDIMM slots and a maximum of 2 terabytes.

Capacity on demand (CoD) processor and memory allows additional resource to be physically installed at low cost. The additional resource can be very quickly activated, either temporarily or permanently, to meet changing business needs while avoiding downtime. Any temporary activations are paid for after it is used. A minimum of two processor modules of processor cores must be permanently activated, and a minimum of 50% of the physical memory must be permanently activated.

Up to 11 PCIe Gen3 slots are provided in the system unit. The number of PCIe slots depends on the number of processor modules. Two processor modules provide seven PCIe slots. Three processor modules provide nine PCIe slots. Four processor modules provide 11 PCIe slots. One of the slots contains an Ethernet LAN adapter. Up to 40 additional PCIe Gen3 slots can be added using PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawers. A two-processor module system can attach up to two PCIe Gen3 I/O drawers and provide up to 27 PCIe slots. A three-processor module system can attach up to three PCIe Gen3 I/O drawers and provide up to 39 PCIe slots. A four-processor module system can attach up to four PCIe Gen3 I/O drawers and provide up to 51 PCIe slots.

The E850 has been designed and built to provide strong reliability, availability, and serviceability characteristics. These include POWER8 chip capabilities, memory protection, multiple SAS storage protection options, hot plug SAS bays, hot plug PCIe slots, redundant and hot plug power supplies and cooling fans, redundant and spare internal cooling fans, hotplug Time of Day battery, and even highly resilient architecture for power regulators.

The Power E850 server supports the IBM Solution Editions for SAP HANA offering.

Processor modules
  • The Power E850 server supports 16 to 48 processor cores:
    • 8-core 3.72 GHz (#EPV2)
    • 10-core 3.35 GHz (#EPV6)
    • 12-core 3.02 GHz (#EPV4)
  • A minimum of two and a maximum of four processor modules are required for each system. The third and fourth module can be added to a system at a later time through an MES order, but will require scheduled downtime to install. All processor modules in one server must be the same gigahertz (same processor module feature number). They cannot be mixed.
  • Permanent CoD processor core activations are required for the first two processor modules in the configuration and are optional for the third and fourth modules. Specifically:
    • Two, three, or four 8-core, 3.72 GHz processor modules (#EPV2) require 16 processor core activations (#EPV9) at a minimum.
    • Two, three, or four 10-core, 3.35 GHz processor modules (#EPV6) require 20 processor core activations (#EPVH) at a minimum.
    • Two, three, or four 12-core, 3.02 GHz processor modules (#EPV4) require 24 processor core activations (#EPVD) at a minimum.
  • Temporary CoD capabilities are optionally used for processor cores that are not permanently activated:
    • 90 Days Elastic CoD Processor Core Enablement (#EP9T).
    • 1 and 100 Processor Day Elastic CoD billing for #EPV2 (#EPJW, #EPJX).
    • 1 and 100 Processor Day Elastic CoD billing for #EPV4 (#EPK0, #EPK1).
    • 1 and 100 Processor Day Elastic CoD billing for #EPV6 (#EPK3, #EPK4).
    • 100 Processor-minutes Utility CoD billing: for #EPV2 (#EPJY), for #EPV4 (#EPK2), or for #EPV4 (#EPK5).
    • An HMC is required for temporary CoD.

System memory
  • 128 GB to 2 TB high-performance 1600 MHz DDR3 ECC memory with L4 cache:
    • 16 GB CDIMM Memory (#EM86)
    • 32 GB CDIMM Memory (#EM87)
    • 64 GB CDIMM Memory (#EM88)
  • As the customer memory requirements increase, the system capabilities are increased as follows:
    • With two processor modules installed, 16 CDIMM slots are available, minimum memory is 128 GB.
    • With three modules, 24 CDIMM slots are available, minimum memory is 192 GB.
    • With four modules, 32 CDIMM slots are available, minimum memory is 256 GB. Four CDIMMs are available per socket. The more CDIMM slots that are filled, the larger the available bandwidth available to the server.

      Permanent CoD memory activations are required for at least 50% of the physically installed memory and not less than 128 GB activated. For example, for a system with two processor modules installed, no less than 128 GB must be activated. A system with three processor modules installed, 50% of physically installed memory, but not less than 128 GB must be activated, whichever is larger. Use 1 GB activation (#EMAA) and 100 GB activation (#EMAB) features to order permanent memory activations.

  • Memory is ordered in pairs of the same memory feature. Both CDIMMs of a CDIMM pair must be installed in the slots supporting one processor. Different size pairs can be mixed on the same processor module's slots. For optimal performance, all pairs would be the same size. Also for optimal performance, generally the amount of memory per processor module would be the same or about the same.
  • Temporary CoD for memory is available for memory capacity that is not permanently activated:
    • 90 Days Elastic CoD Memory Enablement (#EM9T).
    • 1, 100, and 999 GB-Day billing for Elastic CoD memory (#EMJA, #EMJB, #EMJC).
    • An HMC is required.

I/O support

PCIe slots

The Power E850 server has up to 11 PCIe hot-plug Gen3 slots, providing excellent configuration flexibility and expandability. Eight adapter slots are x16 Gen3, and three adapter slots are x8 Gen3. All adapter slots are full height, half length.

The number of slots supported vary by the number of processor modules.

Processor modules 2 socket 3 socket 4 socket
x16 Gen3 slots (CAPI capable) 4 6 8
x8 Gen3 slots 3 3 3

Notes:

  • At least one PCIe Ethernet adapter is required on the server by IBM to ensure proper manufacture and test of the server. One of the x8 PCIe slots is used for this required adapter, identified as the C11 slot.
  • Blind swap cassettes (BSC) are not used for adapters in the system unit.
  • All PCIe slots in the system unit are SR-IOV capable.

The x16 slots can provide up to twice the bandwidth of x8 slots because they offer twice as many PCIe lanes. PCIe Gen3 slots can support up to twice the bandwidth of a PCIe Gen2 slot and up to four times the bandwidth of a PCIe Gen1 slot, assuming an equivalent number of PCIe lanes. PCIe Gen1 and PCIe Gen2 adapters can be plugged into a PCIe Gen3 slot, if that adapter is supported. x16 slots can be used to attach PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion drawers.

The new servers are smarter than earlier servers about energy efficiency for cooling the PCIe adapter environment. They can sense which IBM PCIe adapters are installed in their PCIe slots. If an adapter is known to require higher levels of cooling, they automatically speed up fans to increase airflow across the PCIe adapters. In contrast, POWER7® servers required the user to enter a "nonacoustic mode" command to speed up the fans. Note that faster fans increase the sound level of the server.

SAS bays and storage backplane options

Clients have a choice of three storage features with eight SFF disk bays, four x 1.8-inch disk bays and one DVD bay:

  • Dual Controller Disk Backplane, RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 5T2, 6T2, and 10T2 with write cache (#EPVN) . The pair of controllers handle all twelve integrated SAS bays and DVD bay.
  • Dual Controller Disk Backplane, RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 5T2, 6T2, and 10T2 without write cache (#EPVP) . The pair of controllers handle all twelve integrated SAS bays and DVD bay.
  • Split Disk Backplane (two single controllers), RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and 10T2 without write cache (#EPVQ) (This is the e-config default.) Each one of the two controllers handles four SFF-3 and two 1.8-inch SAS bays. One of the controllers handles the DVD bay.

Each of the three backplane options provides SFF-3 SAS bays in the system unit. These 2.5-inch or small form factor (SFF) SAS bays can contain SAS drives (HDD or SSD) mounted on a Gen3 tray or carrier. Thus the drives are designated for SFF-1, or SFF-2 bays do not fit in an SFF-3 bay. All SFF-3 bays support concurrent maintenance or hot-plug capability. All three of these backplane options support HDDs or SSDs or a mixture of HDDs and SSDs in the SFF-3 bays. If mixing HDDs and SSDs, they must be in separate arrays (unless using the Easy Tier function).

The dual SAS controllers provide both performance and protection advantages. Patented Active-Active capabilities enhance performance when there is more than one array configured. Each of the dual controllers has access to all the backplane SAS bays and can back up the other controller if there were to be a problem with the other controller. For the other controller pair with cache, each controller mirrors the other's write cache, providing redundancy protection. Integrated flash memory for the write cache content provides protection against electrical power loss to the server and avoids the need for write cache battery protection and battery maintenance.

All three of these backplane options can offer different drive protection options: RAID 0, RAID 5, RAID 6, or RAID 10. RAID 5 requires a minimum of three drives of the same capacity. RAID 6 requires a minimum of four drives of the same capacity. RAID 10 requires a minimum of two drives. Hot spare capability is supported with RAID 5 or RAID 6.

All three backplanes offer Easy Tier functionality, which is also called RAID 5T2 (2-tiered RAID 5), RAID 6T2 (2-tiered RAID 6), and RAID 10T2 (2-tiered RAID 10). The split backplane option supports RAID 10T2 but does not support RAID 5T2 or 6T2.

Notes:

  • Clients with I/O performance-sensitive workloads with an appreciable percentage of writes should strongly consider using the feature EPVN backplane with SAS controllers with write cache or use PCIe SAS controllers with write cache, especially for HDDs. Note also that RAID 5 and RAID 6 result in more drive write activity than mirroring or than unprotected drives.
  • All three of these backplane options are supported by AIX, Linux, and VIOS. It is highly recommended that the drives be protected, but not required. If the client needs a change after the server is already installed, the backplane option can be changed. Scheduled downtime is required to remove the existing storage backplane and install a different backplane.
  • Unlike the hot-plug PCIe slots and SAS bays, concurrent maintenance is not available for the integrated SAS controllers or storage backplane. Scheduled downtime is required if a service action is required for these integrated resources.

Storage Backplane Integrated Easy Tier function

The Easy Tier function is provided with all three storage backplanes (#EPVN, #EPVP, #EPVQ). Conceptually, this function is like the Easy Tier function found in the IBM Storage products such as the DS8000®, Storwize® V7000, or SVC, but implemented just within the integrated Power Systems™ SAS controllers and the integrated SAS bays. Hot data is automatically moved to SSDs, and cold data is automatically moved to disk (HDD) in an AIX, Linux, or VIOS environment. No user application coding is required.

Clients commonly have this hot/cold characteristic for their data. It is typical for 10% - 20% of the data to be accessed 80% - 90% of the time. This is called the hot data. If you can get the hot data onto SSDs, it can dramatically improve the performance of I/O-bound applications. And by keeping the cold data on HDDs, the total cost per gigabyte of the solution can be minimized. You can end up with high I/O performance at a very reasonable price. By avoiding the need for lots of HDD arms for performance, you can reduce the number of I/O drawers, maintenance, rack/floor space, and energy.

On the Power E850 server, the integrated SAS RAID controllers handle eight SFF-3 bays (either HDD or SDD), and four 1.8-inch SSD bays can leverage Easy Tier functionality. In addition, or alternatively, the previously announced PCIe Gen3 large cache SAS adapter (#EJOL) can provide additional capacity or configuration options for the Easy Tier function, with HDDs and SSDs located in EXP24s drawers.

Easy Tier function is configured using RAID 5T2 (2-tiered RAID 5), RAID 6T2 (2-tiered RAID 6), or RAID 10T2 (2-tiered RAID 10). HDDs and SSDs are combined in the same array, and the controller or adapter swaps 1M or 2M bands of data between HDDs and SSDs, automatically moving the hot data to SSDs and the cold data to SSDs. The HDD and SSD can be different capacities in this array. If an array has multiple capacity points, for example, 300 GB HDD and 600 GB HDD, only 300 GB of the larger 600 GB HDD will be used. Similarly, if the array has both 387 GB SSD and 775 GB SSD, only 387 GB of the 775 GB SSD will be used. Note that the block size of the drives in the array must match, all 4k or all 5xx block drive.

DVD and boot devices

A slimline media bay that can hold a SATA DVD-RAM is included in the feature EPVN, EPVP, and EPVQ backplanes. The DVD drive is run by one of the integrated SAS controllers in the storage backplane, and a separate PCIe controller is not required.

A device capable of reading a DVD can be attached to the system and be available to perform operating system installation, maintenance, problem determination, and service actions such as maintaining system firmware and I/O microcode at their latest levels. Alternatively, the system must be attached to a network with software such as AIX NIM server or Linux Install Manager configured to perform these functions.

System boot is supported through three options:

  1. Disk or SSD located in an EXP24S drawer attached to a PCIe adapter
  2. A network through LAN adapters
  3. A SAN attached to Fibre Channel or FCoE adapters and indicated to the server by the 0837 specify code

Assuming option 1 above, the minimum system configuration requires at least one SAS disk drive in the system for AIX and Linux. If you are using option 2 or 3 above, a disk or SSD drive is not required.

I/O drawer attachment

Clients migrating from earlier generation servers may have been using I/O drawers such as the GX++ attached feature 5802 or 5877 PCIe 12X I/O Drawers with PCIe Gen1 slots. Though most PCIe adapters in the feature 5802 or 5877 drawers can be moved to this server and its disk drives converted and moved to the feature 5887 EXP24S drawer, the feature 5802 and 5877 drawers are not supported on this newer Power Systems technology-based server. Similarly, the GX++ attached EXP30 Ultra SSD Drawer (#EDR1 or #5888) is not supported.

Up to 64 EXP24S storage drawers can be attached to a Power E850 server. With 24 drives per drawer, this means up to 1536 SFF-2 drives are supported. A maximum of 16 EXP24S per PCIe Gen3 I/O drawer is supported due to cable management considerations.

The older 3.5-inch-based EXP12S SAS Disk Drawer (#5886) and EXP24 SCSI Disk Drawer (#5786) are not supported.

IBM offers a 1U multimedia drawer that can hold one or more DVDs, tape drive, or RDX docking stations. The 7226-1U3 is the most current offering. The earlier 7216-1U2 and 7214-1U2 are also supported. Up to six of these multimedia drawers can be attached.

PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer

PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawers (#EMX0) can be attached to the system unit to expand the number of full-high, hot-swap Gen3 slots available to the server. The maximum number of PCIe Gen3 I/O drawers depends on the number of processor modules physically installed. The maximum is independent of the number of processor core activations.

  • Up to two PCIe3 drawers with two processor modules
  • Up to three PCIe3 drawers with three processor modules
  • Up to four PCIe3 drawers with four processor modules
  • The 19-inch 4 EIA (4U) PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer (#EMX0) and two PCIe FanOut Modules (#EMXF) provide 12 PCIe I/O full-length, full-height slots. One FanOut Module provides six PCIe slots labeled C1 through C6. C1 and C4 are x16 slots and C2, C3, C5, and C6 are x8 slots. Slots C1 and C4 of the 6-slot Fan-out Module in a PCIe Gen3 I/O drawer are SR-IOV enabled.
  • An EMX0 drawer can be configured with one or two EMXF FanOut Modules. Adding a second FanOut Module is not a hot-plug operation and requires scheduled downtime.
  • PCIe Gen1, Gen2, and Gen3 full-high adapter cards are supported. The set of full-high PCIe adapters that are supported is found in the Sales Manual, identified by feature number. See the PCI Adapter Placement manual for the 8408-E8E for details and rules associated with specific adapters supported and their supported placement in x8 or x16 slots.
  • Each FanOut Module requires one PCIe Optical Cable Adapter (#EJ08), which is placed in a x16 PCIe slot of the system unit.
  • An optical cable pair attaches the PCIe Optical Cable Adapter (#EJ08) to the FanOut Module. Feature ECC7 provides a pair of 3-meter cables with transceivers. Feature ECC8 provides a pair of 10-meter cables with transceivers. Two cables of identical length, or one feature, is required for each FanOut Module.
  • The Optical Cable Adapter (#EJ08) can be placed in any of the system units' available x16 slots and attached to any FanOut Module in any of the server's PCIe Gen3 I/O drawers (#EMX0). The PCIe I/O drawer cannot be shared by two different servers.
  • It is recommended that any attached PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer be located in the same rack as the POWER8 server for ease of service, but the drawers can be installed in separate racks if the application or other rack content requires it. It is recommended to use 3-meter cables for PCIe drawers in the same rack as the system unit and 10-meter cables for drawers located in a different rack.
  • Concurrent repair and add/removal of PCIe adapter cards is done by HMC-guided menus or by operating system support utilities.
  • A blind swap cassette (BSC) is used to house the full-high adapters that go into these slots. The BSC is the same BSC as used with the previous generation server's 12X attached I/O drawers (#5802, #5803, #5877, #5873). The drawer is shipped with a full set of BSCs, even if the BSCs are empty. A feature to order additional full-high BSCs is not required or announced.
  • When the operating system is Linux, PowerVM is required for support of the I/O Expansion Drawer.

Cable management arm (CMA)

A folding arm is attached to the server's rails at the rear of the server. The server's power cords and the cables from the PCIe adapters or integrated ports run through the arm and into the rack. The arm enables the server to be pulled forward on its rails for service access to PCIe slots, memory, processors, and so on without disconnecting the cables from the server. Approximately 1 meter of cord/cable length is needed for the arm. One CMA is included with the server. It does not have a separate ordering feature.

Integrated I/O ports

In addition to the integrated SAS controllers associated with the storage backplane, there are two HMC ports, one system port, and six USB ports (four general purpose and two limited use).

The two HMC ports are located on the service processor in the rear of the server and are RJ45. These ports support 1Gb Ethernet connections leveraging the second-generation service processor technology called an FSP2 in some IBM publications.

The one integrated system or serial port has an RJ45 style connector and is supported by AIX and Linux for attaching serial devices such as an asynchronous device like a console. If the device does not have a RJ45 connection, a converter cable such as feature 3930 can provide a 9-pin, D-shell connection. Note that serial devices can have very individual characteristics (different pin outs), and the feature 3930 may not be appropriate for all possible devices. In this case, the user should acquire an OEM converter cable appropriate for their device.

Integrated system port is not supported under AIX or Linux when the HMC ports are connected to an HMC. Either the HMC ports or the integrated system ports can be used, but not both. The integrated system port is supported for modem and TTY terminal connections by AIX or Linux. Any other application using serial ports requires a serial port adapter to be installed in a PCI slot. The integrated system port does not support HACMP™ configurations.

Four USB-3 ports are available for general client use, and two USB-2 ports are available for limited client use. Two USB-3 ports are located on the front of the server, and the other four USB ports (two USB-3 and two USB-2) are on the rear. The USB-2 ports are on the service processor card and can be used for communications to a UPS. A converter cable, feature ECCF, provides a USB-to-9 pin D-Shell connection to some UPS. The IBM 9910 Uninterruptible Power Systems, models E66 and E67, are supported as purchase options with the 8408-E8E.


Racks

The Power E850 server is designed to fit a standard 19-inch rack. IBM Development has tested and certified the system for the following rack support:

  • 7014-T00 (36U) (Manufacturing rack integration supported or #0551 MES support - defaulted on initial order)
  • 7014-T42 (42U) (Manufacturing rack integration supported or #0553 MES support)

The client can choose to place the server in other racks if they are confident those racks have the strength, rigidity, depth, and hole pattern characteristics that are needed. The client should work with IBM Service to determine other racks' appropriateness. The Power E850 rails can adjust their depth to fit a rack that is 22.75 inches - 30.5 inches in depth based on the adjustable outer brackets going from the front rail to the rear rail. Racks from IBM include:

  • 7014-B42 (42U) (Support only, cannot be ordered from IBM)
  • 7965-94Y (42U) (Field merge support only)

The Power E850 IBM manufacturing rack integration can be ordered with a 36U (7014-T00) or a 42U (7014-T42) rack. A same serial-number model upgrade MES is placed in either feature 0551 or 0553 rack. This is done to ease and speed client installation, provide a more complete and higher quality environment for IBM Manufacturing system assembly and testing, and provide a more complete shipping package. IBM Manufacturing does not support the use of other racks with the Power E850 initial system order or model upgrade. The 7014-T00 or feature 0550 is a 1.8-meter enterprise rack providing 36U or 36 EIA of space. The 7014-T42 or feature 0553 is a 2-meter enterprise rack providing 42U or 42 EIA of space.

Additional E850 PCIe Gen3 I/O drawers (#EMX0) for an already installed server can be MES ordered with or without a rack. When clients want IBM Manufacturing to place these MES I/O drawers into a rack and ship them together (factory integration), then the racks should be ordered as features on the same order as the I/O drawers.

Typical good cable management practices apply. For example, it is usually a good practice to leave 1U or 2U open at the top or bottom of the rack for cables exiting the rack or to hold extra cable lengths. Or if you have more than four PCIe Gen3 I/O drawers in the same rack, carefully consider how many 4-port PCIe adapters have cables attached to all their ports. If you are not using something like the 8-inch extension for a 7014-T42 rack for extra space to lay the cables, service access can be a challenge, especially with thicker I/O cables. Or another example, if there are a lot of I/O cables in the rack, horizontally mounting the PDUs versus mounting them vertically in the side pockets eases service access.

Rack front door options supported are the acoustic door (#6248 or #6249), the attractive geometrically accented door (#ERG7), and the cost-effective plain front door (#6068 or #6069). The front trim kit is also supported (#6263 or #6272).

Supported PDUs are either feature 7109 or 7188.

  • Feature 7109 -- Intelligent PDU with Universal UTG0247 Connector is for an intelligent ac power distribution unit (PDU+) that will allow the user to monitor the amount of power being used by the devices that are plugged in to this PDU+. This ac power distribution unit provides 12 C13 power outlets. It receives power through a UTG0247 connector. It can be used for many different countries and applications by varying the PDU to Wall Power Cord, which must be ordered separately. Each PDU requires one PDU to Wall Power Cord. Supported power cords include the following features: 6489, 6491, 6492, 6653, 6654, 6655, 6656, 6657, and 6658.
  • Feature 7188 -- Power Distribution Unit mounts in a 19-inch rack and provides 12 C13 power outlets. Feature 7188 has six 16A circuit breakers, with two power outlets per circuit breaker. System units and expansion units must use a power cord with a C14 plug to connect to the feature 7188. One of the following line cords must be used to distribute power from a wall outlet to the feature 7188: feature 6489, 6491, 6492, 6653, 6654, 6655, 6656, 6657, or 6658.

Three to four service personnel are required to manually remove or insert a system node drawer into a rack, given its dimensions and weight and content. To avoid the need for this many people to assemble at a client site for a service action a lift tool can be very useful. Similarly, if the client has chosen to install this CSU (Customer Set Up) system, similar lifting considerations apply. The Power E850 has a maximum weight of 69 kg (152 lbs). However, by temporarily removing the power supplies, fans and RAID assembly; the weight is easily reduced to a maximum of 55 kg (121 lbs).

When lowering the Power E850 onto its rails in the rack, the server must be tilted on one end about 15 degrees so that the pins on the server enclosure fit onto the rails. This equates to lifting one end of the server about 4 cm (1.6 in). This can be done using a tip plate on a lift tool or manually adjusting the load on a lift tool or tilting during the manual lift.

PowerVM

PowerVM is available on the E850:

  • PowerVM Editions are available as a hardware feature (#EPVU for Standard Edition, #EPVV for Enterprise Edition). Select the edition that provides the level of virtualization appropriate for your workloads.
  • PowerVM Standard Edition (#EPVU) supports up to 20 partitions per core, VIOS, and multiple shared processor pools.
  • PowerVM Enterprise Edition (#EPVV) adds support for Live Partition Mobility, Active Memory Sharing, and PowerVP™ performance monitoring.

Other PowerVM technologies include:

  • System Planning Tool simplifies the process of planning and deploying Power Systems LPARs and virtual I/O.
  • Virtual I/O Server (VIOS) is a single-function appliance that resides in an IBM Power partition. It facilitates the sharing of physical I/O resources between AIX, Linux, and client partitions within the server. VIOS provides shared Ethernet adapter (SEA) virtual I/O to client LPARs.
  • Virtual SCSI (VSCSI) enables the sharing of physical storage adapters (Fibre Channel) and storage devices (disk and optical) between logical partitions.
  • With virtual networking, a shared Ethernet adapter enables connectivity between internal and external virtual LANs (VLANs); virtual Ethernet provides high-speed connections between partitions.
  • With Live Partition Mobility, available only with PowerVM Enterprise Edition, you can move a running AIX or Linux VMs from one physical server to another with no downtime. Use this capability to:
    • Evacuate workloads from a system before performing scheduled maintenance.
    • Move workloads across a pool of different physical resources as business needs shift.
    • Move workloads away from underutilized machines so that they can be powered off to save on energy and cooling costs.
    • Move your workloads to new POWER8 systems for upgrades without having to schedule an outage. With Active Memory Sharing, memory is dynamically moved between running partitions for optimal resource usage.

Active Memory Expansion

Active Memory Expansion is an innovative technology supporting the AIX operating system that allows the effective maximum memory capacity to be much larger than the true physical memory maximum. Sophisticated compression/decompression of memory content can allow memory expansion up to 100% or more. This can allow a partition to do significantly more work or support more users with the same physical amount of memory. Similarly, it can allow a server to run more partitions and do more work for the same physical amount of memory.

Active Memory Expansion uses CPU resource to compress/decompress the memory contents. The trade-off of memory capacity for processor cycles can be an excellent choice, but the degree of expansion varies on how compressible the memory content is. It also depends on having adequate spare CPU capacity available for this compression/decompression. Tests in IBM laboratories using sample workloads showed excellent results for many workloads in terms of memory expansion per additional CPU utilized. Other test workloads had more modest results.

POWER7+™ and POWER8 chips include a hardware accelerator designed to boost Active Memory Expansion efficiency and use less POWER® core resource. The POWER8 accelerator includes some minor enhancements and also leverages POWER8 higher bandwidth and lower latency characteristics.

You have a great deal of control over Active Memory Expansion usage. Each individual AIX partition can turn on or turn off Active Memory Expansion. Control parameters set the amount of expansion desired in each partition to help control the amount of CPU used by the Active Memory Expansion function. An IPL is required for the specific partition that is turning on memory expansion. Once turned on, monitoring capabilities are available in standard AIX performance tools such as lparstat, vmstat, topas, and svmon.

A planning tool is included with AIX, allowing you to sample actual workloads and estimate both how expandable the partition's memory is and how much CPU resource is needed. Any Power Systems model can run the planning tool. In addition, a one-time, 60-day trial of Active Memory Expansion is available to enable more exact memory expansion and CPU measurements. You can request the trial using the Capacity on Demand web page

http://www.ibm.com/systems/power/hardware/cod/

Active Memory Expansion is enabled by chargeable hardware feature 4798, which can be ordered with the initial order of the system node or as an MES order. A software key is provided when the enablement feature is ordered, which is applied to the system node. An IPL is not required to enable the system node. The key is specific to an individual system node and is permanent. It cannot be moved to a different server.

The additional CPU resource used to expand memory is part of the CPU resource assigned to the AIX partition running Active Memory Expansion. Normal licensing requirements apply.


Capacity on demand

Several types of capacity on demand (CoD) processors are optionally available for the Power E850 server. They help meet changing resource requirements in an on demand environment by using resources installed on the system but not activated.

Capacity upgrade on demand (CUOD) enables you to purchase additional permanent processor or memory capacity and dynamically activate it when needed.

Elastic capacity on demand (Elastic CoD) enables processors or memory to be temporarily activated in full-day increments as needed. Charges are based on usage reporting collected monthly. Processors and memory can be activated and turned off an unlimited number of times, whenever you want additional processing resources.

With this offering, system administrators have an interface at the HMC to manage the activation and deactivation of resources. A monitor that resides on the server logs the usage activity. You must send this usage data to IBM monthly. A bill is then generated based on the total amount of processor and memory resources utilized, in increments of processor and memory (1 GB) days. Before using temporary capacity on your server, you must enable your server. To do this, order an enablement feature (MES only) and sign the required contracts.

Use the following features to order activation features and support billing charges on the Power E850 (8408-E8E) server:

Processor module feature Elastic CoD processor enablement feature Elastic CoD AIX/Linux processor billing feature (1 and 100 proc-day)
EPV2 (8-core module) EP9T EPJW, EPJX
EPV4 (12-core module) EP9T EPK0, EPK1
EPV6 (10-core mdule) EP9T EPK3, EPK4
Memory feature Elastic CoD memory enablement feature Elastic CoD memory billing feature (1, 100, and 999 GB-day)
EM86 (16 GB) EM9T EMJA, EMJB, EMJC
EM87 (32 GB) EM9T EMJA, EMJB, EMJC
EM88 (64 GB) EM9T EMJA, EMJB, EMJC

Notes:

  • After CoD contracts are in place, inactive processor cores and inactive memory can be enabled for Elastic CoD usage.

The Elastic CoD processor consists of three steps: enablement, activation, and billing

  • Elastic CoD enablement: Description

    Before requesting temporary capacity on a server, you must enable it for Elastic CoD. To do this, order a no-charge enablement feature (MES only) and sign the required contracts. IBM will generate an enablement code, mail it to you, and post it on the web for you to retrieve and enter on your server. A processor enablement code lets you request up to 90 processor days of temporary unused CoD processor capacity for all your processor cores that have not been permanently activated. For example, if you have 16 processor cores that are not permanently activated, the processor enablement code allows up to 1,440 processor days (16 x 90). If you have reached or are about to reach the limit of 90 processor days per nonactivated processor core, place an order for another processor enablement code to reset the number of days you can request. Similarly, a memory enablement code lets you request up to 90 days of temporary unused CoD memory capacity for all your gigabytes of memory that have not been permanently activated. For example, if you had 100 GB of memory that was not permanently activated, the memory enablement code allows up to 9000 GB memory days (100 x 90). If you have reached the limit of 90 memory days per nonactivated memory, place an order for another memory enablement code to reset the number of days you can request. Before ordering a new enablement code for either memory or processor temporary CoD, you must first process an MES delete order, deleting the current enablement code installed in the server configuration file.

    Elastic CoD enablement: Step-by-step

    Prerequisite 1: The sales channel (IBM Business Partner) must sign one of the following contracts, if applicable:

    • IBM Business Partner Agreement, Distributor Attachment for Elastic Capacity on Demand
    • IBM Business Partner Agreement for Solution Providers -- Attachment for Elastic Capacity on Demand
    • IBM Business Partner Agreement -- Attachment for Elastic Capacity on Demand

    Prerequisite 2: The sales channel (IBM Business Partner or IBM Direct) must register at

    http://www.ibm.com/servers/servers/iseries/ondemand/cod
    • Step 1: The client initiates the request for Elastic CoD use by asking the sales channel to enable the machine for temporary capacity.
    • Step 2: The client must complete and sign the following contracts. It is the sales channel's responsibility to return the signed contract to the responsible CSO organization and fax a copy to IBM at 507-253-4553 or email a copy to cod@us.ibm.com
      • Required: IBM Customer Agreement, Attachment for Elastic Capacity on Demand; IBM Supplement for On/Off Capacity on Demand
      • Optional: IBM Addendum for Elastic Capacity on Demand Alternative Reporting
    • Step 3: The sales channel places an order for processor or memory enablement features.
    • Step 4: The sales channel updates the website registration data (see prerequisite 2 above) with information about the client machine being enabled for temporary capacity.

      Note: The order for an enablement feature will not be fulfilled until this step is completed.

    • Step 5: IBM generates an enablement code, mails it, and posts it.
    • Step 6: The client retrieves the enablement code and applies it to the system node.
  • Elastic activation requests: Description

    When Elastic CoD temporary capacity is needed, simply use the HMC menu for Elastic CoD and specify how many of the inactive processors or how many gigabytes of memory you would like temporarily activated for some number of days. You will be billed for the days requested, whether the capacity is assigned to partitions or left in the shared processor pool. At the end of the temporary period (days you requested), you must ensure the temporarily activated capacity is available to be reclaimed by the server (not assigned to partitions) or you will be billed for any processor days not returned (per the contract you signed).

    Elastic CoD activation requests: Step-by-step

    When you need temporary capacity, use the Elastic CoD temporary capacity HMC menu for the server and specify how many of the inactive processors or how many gigabytes of memory you would like temporarily activated for some number of days. The user must assign the temporary capacity to a partition (whether or not the machine is configured for LPAR) to begin using temporary capacity.

  • Elastic CoD billing: Description

    The contract, signed by the client before receiving the enablement feature, requires the Elastic CoD user to report billing data at least once a month (whether there is activity or not). This data is used to determine the proper amount to bill at the end of each billing period (calendar quarter). Failure to report billing data for use of temporary processor or memory capacity during a billing quarter will result in default billing equivalent to 90 processor days of temporary capacity. The sales channel will be notified of client requests for temporary capacity. As a result, the sales channel must order a quantity of billing features (using the appropriate billing features for each billable processor and memory day reported less any outstanding credit balance of processor and memory days).

    Elastic CoD billing: Step-by-step

    The client must report billing data (requested and unreturned processor and memory days) at a minimum of once per month either electronically or by fax (stated requirement in the signed contract). At the end of each billing period (calendar quarter), IBM will process the accumulated data reported and notify the sales channel for proper billing. The sales channel places an order for the appropriate quantity of billing features (one processor billing feature ordered for each processor day used, or one memory day for each memory day utilized). IBM will ship a billing notice (notifies client of billing actions) to the ship-to address on the order as part of the fulfillment process. The client pays the sales channel and the sales channel pays IBM for the fulfillment of the billing features.

    http://www.ibm.com/systems/power/hardware/cod

Note: Prior to CoD enhancements made in 2013, Elastic CoD was called On/Off CoD. Some documentation still refers to this capability as "On/Off."

Utility CoD

Utility CoD provides additional processor performance on a temporary basis within the shared processor pool. Utility CoD enables you to place a quantity of inactive processors into the system node's shared processor pool, which then becomes available to the pool's resource manager. When the system node recognizes that the combined processor utilization within the shared pool exceeds 100% of the level of base (purchased/active) processors assigned across uncapped partitions, then a Utility CoD Processor Minute is charged and this level of performance is available for the next minute of use. If additional workload requires a higher level of performance, the system will automatically enable the additional Utility CoD processors to be used. The system continuously monitors and charges for the performance needed above the base (permanent) level. Registration and usage reporting for Utility CoD is made using a public website, and payment is based on reported usage. Utility CoD requires PowerVM Enterprise Edition to be active on the 8408-E8E.

Processor module feature Utility CoD billing feature 100 processor minutes
EPV2 (8-core module) EPJY
EPV4 (12-core module) EPK1
EPV6 (10-core module) EPK5

Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability

Reliability, fault tolerance, and data correction

The reliability of systems starts with components, devices, and subsystems that are designed to be highly reliable. 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.

Redundant infrastructure

Considerable redundancy in the infrastructure of these systems is included so as to avoid failing components such as power supplies, fans, processor and memory leading to system outages. The front fans are redundant and support concurrent maintenance. The internal fans are redundant and also contain multiple integrated spares. Also, supporting redundant infrastructure is monitoring of components such as processor and memory with voltage regulation outputs. An enhancement over the Power 750/760, is that the E850 has redundant or spare voltage converters for all critical voltages.

Processor and memory availability functions

The Power Systems family continues to offer and introduce significant enhancements designed to increase system availability.

POWER8 processor functions

As previously provided in POWER7 and POWER7+, the POWER8 processor has the ability to do processor instruction retry for some transient errors and alternate processor recovery for a number of core-related faults. This significantly reduces exposure to both hard (logic) and soft (transient) errors in the processor core. Soft failures in the processor core are transient (intermittent) errors, often due to cosmic rays or other sources of radiation, and generally are not repeatable. When such an error is encountered in the core, the POWER8 processor will first automatically retry the instruction. If the source of the error was truly transient, the instruction will succeed and the system will continue as before.

Hard failures are more difficult, being true logical errors that will be replicated each time the instruction is repeated. Retrying the instruction will not help in this situation. The POWER7/POWER7+ technology processors have the ability to extract the failing instruction from the faulty core and retry it elsewhere in the system for a number of faults, after which the failing core is dynamically deconfigured and called out for replacement in the PowerVM environment. These features are designed to avoid a full system outage.

As in POWER7/POWER7+, the POWER8 processor includes single processor check stopping for certain faults that cannot be handled by the availability enhancements described in the preceding section. This significantly reduces the probability of any one processor affecting total system availability.

Partition availability priority

Also available is the ability to assign availability priorities to partitions. In the PowerVM environment, if an alternate processor recovery event requires spare processor resources in order to protect a workload, when no other means of obtaining the spare resources is available, the system will determine which partition has the lowest priority and attempt to claim the needed resource. On a properly configured POWER8 processor-based server, this allows that capacity to be first obtained from, for example, a test partition instead of a financial accounting system.

Cache availability

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 correct error detection code (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 in the PowerVM environment. In addition, the L2 and L3 caches have 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 ECC 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.

Modified data would be handled through Special Uncorrectable Error handling. L1 data and instruction caches also have a retry capability for intermittent errors and a cache set delete mechanism for handling solid failures.

Special uncorrectable error handling

Special uncorrectable error (SUE) handling is designed to prevent an uncorrectable error in memory or cache from immediately causing the system to terminate. Rather, the system tags the data and determines whether it will ever be used again. If the error is irrelevant, it will not force a check stop. If the data is used, termination may be limited to the program/kernel or hypervisor owning the data; or the I/O adapters controlled by an I/O hub controller would freeze if data were transferred to an I/O device.

Memory error correction and recovery

The memory has error detection and correction circuitry designed such that the failure of any one specific memory module within an ECC word by itself can be corrected absent any other fault.

In addition, a spare DRAM per rank on each memory port provides for dynamic DRAM device replacement during runtime operation. Also, dynamic lane sparing on the DMI link allows for repair of a faulty data lane.

Other memory protection features include retry capabilities for certain faults detected at both the memory controller and the memory buffer. Memory is also periodically scrubbed to allow for soft errors correction and for solid single-cell errors to be reported to the hypervisor, which supports operating system deallocation of a page associated with a hard single-cell fault.

Active memory mirroring for the hypervisor

The POWER8 memory subsystem is capable of mirroring sections of memory by writing to two different memory locations, and when an error is detected when reading from one location, taking data from the alternate location. This is used by the POWER hypervisor in these systems to mirror critical memory within the hypervisor so that a fault, even a solid uncorrectable error in the data, can be tolerated using the mirrored memory.

Dynamic processor and memory deallocation

When correctable solid faults occur in components of the processor and memory subsystem, the system will attempt to correct the problem by using spare capacity in the failing component, using a spare column in an L2 or L3 cache, for example, a spare data line in a memory or processor bus, or a spare DRAM in memory. Use of such spare capacity restores the system to full functionality without the need to take a repair action.

When such spare capacity is not available, the service processor and POWER hypervisor may request deallocation of the component experiencing the fault. When there are sufficient resources to continue running partitions at requested capacity, the system will continue to do so. This includes taking advantage of unlicensed capacity update on demand processor and memory resources as well as licensed but unallocated resources.

When such unlicensed or unused capacity is used in this manner, a request for service will be made.

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, allow 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.

The service processor monitors the operation of the firmware during the boot process and also monitors the hypervisor for termination. The hypervisor monitors the service processor and reports the service reference code when it detects surveillance loss. In the PowerVM environment, it will perform a reset/reload if it detects the loss of the service processor.

Environmental monitoring functions

The Power Systems family does ambient and over temperature monitoring and reporting.

Uncorrectable error recovery

When the auto-restart option is enabled, the system can automatically restart following an unrecoverable software error, hardware failure, or environmentally induced (ac power) failure.

Serviceability

The purpose of serviceability is to efficiently repair the system while attempting to minimize or eliminate the impact to system operation. Serviceability includes system installation, MES (system upgrades/downgrades), and system maintenance/repair. Depending upon the system and warranty contract, service may be performed by the customer, an IBM representative, or an authorized warranty service provider.

The serviceability features delivered in this system provide a highly efficient service environment by incorporating the following attributes:

  • Design for Customer Set Up (CSU), Customer Installed Features (CIF), and Customer Replaceable Units (CRU).
  • Detection and Fault Isolation (ED/FI).
  • First Failure Data Capture (FFDC).
  • Light path service indicators.
  • Service labels and service diagrams available on the system and delivered through IBM Knowledge Center.
  • Step-by-step service procedures documented in IBM Knowledge Center or available through the HMC.
  • CRU videos that are planned to be available on the web at general availability.
  • Mobile access to important customer service functions available by scanning a QR label.

Service environment

The HMC is a dedicated server that provides functions for configuring and managing servers for either partitioned or full-system partition using a GUI or command-line interface (CLI). An HMC attached to the system allows support personnel (with client authorization) to remotely log in to review error logs and perform remote maintenance if required.

The POWER8 processor-based platforms support two main service environments:

  • Attachment to one or more HMCs is a supported option by the system with PowerVM. This is the default configuration for servers supporting logical partitions with dedicated or virtual I/O. In this case, all servers have at least one logical partition.
  • No HMC. There are two service strategies for non-HMC systems.
    • Full-system partition with PowerVM: A single partition owns all the server resources and only one operating system may be installed.
    • Partitioned system with PowerVM: In this configuration, the system can have more than one partition and can be running more than one operating system. In this environment, partitions are managed by the Integrated Virtualization Manager (IVM), which provides some of the functions provided by the HMC.

The I/O device and adapter diagnostics consists of stand-alone diagnostics, which are loaded from the DVD-RAM drive and online diagnostics. Online diagnostics, when installed, are resident with the AIX operating system on the disk or system. They can be booted in single-user mode (service mode), run in maintenance mode, or run concurrently (concurrent mode) with other applications. They have access to the AIX error log and the AIX configuration data.

  • Service mode enables checking of system devices and features.
  • Concurrent mode allows the normal system functions to continue while selected resources are being checked.
  • Maintenance mode enables checking of devices and adapters.

Service interface

The service interface allows support personnel to communicate with the service support applications in a server using a console, an interface, or a terminal. Delivering a clear, concise view of available service applications, the service interface allows the support team to manage system resources and service information in an efficient and effective way. Applications available through the service interface are carefully configured and placed to give service providers access to important service functions.

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

  • Service Indicators
  • Operator Panel
  • Service Processor menu
  • Operating system service menu
  • Service Focal Point™ on the HMC with PowerVM
  • Service Focal Point Lite on IVM with PowerVM

In the light path LED implementation, the system can clearly identify components for replacement by using specific component-level LEDs, and can also guide the servicer directly to the component by signaling (turning on solid) the amber system fault LED, enclosure fault LED, and component FRU fault LED. The servicer can also use the identify function to blink the FRU-level LED. When this function is activated, a roll-up to the blue enclosure locate and system locate LEDs will occur. These LEDs will turn on solid and can be used to follow the light path from the system to the enclosure and down to the specific FRU in the PowerVM environment.

First-failure data capture and error data analysis

First-failure data capture (FFDC) is a technique that helps ensure that when a fault is detected in a system, the root cause of the fault will be captured without the need to re-create the problem or run any sort of extending tracing or diagnostics program. For the vast majority of faults, a good FFDC design means that the root cause can also be detected automatically without servicer intervention.

FFDC information, error data analysis, and fault isolation are necessary to implement the advanced serviceability techniques that enable efficient service of the systems and to help determine the failing items.

In the rare absence of FFDC and Error Data Analysis, diagnostics are required to re-create the failure and determine the failing items.

Diagnostics

General diagnostic objectives are to detect and identify problems so they can be resolved quickly. Elements of IBM's diagnostics strategy include:

  • Provide a common error code format equivalent to a system reference code with PowerVM, system reference number, checkpoint, or firmware error code.
  • Provide fault detection and problem isolation procedures. Support remote connection ability to be used by the IBM Remote Support Center or IBM Designated Service.
  • Provide interactive intelligence within the diagnostics with detailed online failure information while connected to IBM's back-end system.

Automatic diagnostics

Because of the FFDC technology designed into IBM servers, it is not necessary to perform re-create diagnostics for failures or require user intervention. Solid and intermittent errors are designed to be correctly detected and isolated at the time the failure occurs. Runtime and boot-time diagnostics fall into this category.

Stand-alone diagnostics with PowerVM

As the name implies, stand-alone or user-initiated diagnostics requires user intervention. The user must perform manual steps, including:

  • Booting from the diagnostics CD, DVD, USB, or network
  • Interactively selecting steps from a list of choices

Concurrent maintenance

Some hardware components that fail will be able to be replaced using concurrent maintenance. These include power supplies, power cable, 80 MM fans, op panel, real-time clock battery, and PCIe adapters.

The system also supports updating firmware with service packages, typically concurrently. The determination of whether a firmware release can be updated concurrently is identified in the readme information file that is released with the firmware.

Service labels

Service providers use these labels to assist them in performing maintenance actions. Service labels are found in various formats and positions and are intended to transmit readily available information to the servicer during the repair process. Following are some of these service labels and their purpose:

  • Location diagrams: Location diagrams are located on the system hardware, relating information regarding the placement of hardware components.

    Location diagrams may include location codes, drawings of physical locations, concurrent maintenance status, or other data pertinent to a repair. Location diagrams are especially useful when multiple components such as DIMMs, CPUs, processor books, fans, adapter cards, LEDs, and power supplies are installed.

  • Remove/replace procedures: Service labels that contain remove/replace procedures are often found on a cover of the system or in other spots accessible to the servicer. These labels provide systematic procedures, including diagrams, detailing how to remove or replace certain serviceable hardware components.
  • Arrows: Numbered arrows are used to indicate the order of operation and the serviceability direction of components. Some serviceable parts such as latches, levers, and touch points need to be pulled or pushed in a certain direction and in a certain order for the mechanical mechanisms to engage or disengage. Arrows generally improve the ease of serviceability.

Packing for service

The following service enhancements are included in the physical packaging of the systems to facilitate service:

  • Color coding (touch points): Terracotta-colored touch points indicate that the system may not be required to be powered off to perform service to the FRU. This is dependent on system configuration and preparatory steps may be required before the service action is taken. Blue-colored touch points indicate that the procedure may require that the unit or system be shut down before servicing. This is dependent on system configuration, and preparatory steps may be required before the service action is taken.
  • Tool-less design: Most FRUs support tool-less or simple tool designs. These designs require no tools or simple tools such as flathead screw drivers to service the hardware components.
  • Positive retention: Positive retention mechanisms help to assure proper connections between hardware components such as cables to connectors, and between two cards that attach to each other. Without positive retention, hardware components run the risk of becoming loose during shipping or installation, preventing a good electrical connection. Positive retention mechanisms like latches, levers, thumb-screws, pop Nylatches (U-clips), and cables are included to help prevent loose connections and aid in installing (seating) parts correctly. These positive retention items do not require tools.

    Error handling and reporting

    In the unlikely event of system hardware or environmentally induced failure, the system runtime error capture capability systematically analyzes the hardware error signature to determine the cause of failure. The analysis result will be stored in system NVRAM. When the system can be successfully restarted either manually or automatically, or if the system continues to operate, the error will be reported to the operating system. Hardware and software failures are recorded in the system log. When an HMC is attached, an Error Log Analysis (ELA) routine analyzes the error, forwards the event to the Service Focal Point (SFP) application running on the HMC, and notifies the system administrator that it has isolated a likely cause of the system problem. The Service Processor event log also records unrecoverable checkstop conditions, forwards them to the SFP application, and notifies the system administrator.

    The system has the ability to call home through the OS to report platform-recoverable errors and errors associated with PCI adapters/devices.

    In the IVM environment, call home is supported through an IVM partition.

    In the HMC managed environment, if the system is properly configured for call home, a call home service request will be initiated and the pertinent failure data with service parts information and part locations will be sent to an IBM service organization. Customer contact information and specific system-related data such as the machine type, model, and serial number, along with the error log data related to the failure, are sent to IBM Service.

    Live Partition Mobility

    With Live Partition Mobility, users can migrate an AIX or Linux partition running on one POWER partition system to another POWER system without disrupting services. The migration transfers the entire system environment, including processor state, memory, attached virtual devices, and connected users. It provides continuous operating system and application availability during planned partition outages for repair of hardware and firmware faults.

    When initially purchasing a system, the client needs to consider the effect on the workloads that servicing the system will make. Some system FRUs that fail will be replaced while the system is still powered on, using Concurrent Maintenance. For the remainder of the FRUs, the entire system must be powered off to service the FRU. For customers with critical workloads, which cannot afford to be stopped, the use of Live Partition Mobility needs to be planned for when the initial purchase of the system is made.

    Service processor

    The service processor provides the capability to diagnose, check the status of, and sense the operational conditions of a system. It runs on its own power boundary and does not require resources from a system processor to be operational to perform its tasks.

    Under PowerVM, 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, reset, restart, remote maintenance, and diagnostic functions, including console mirroring. The service processors menus (ASMI) can be accessed concurrently with system operation, allowing nondisruptive abilities to change system default parameters.

    Call home

    Call home refers to an automatic or manual call from a customer location to the IBM support structure with error log data, server status, or other service-related information. Call home invokes the service organization in order for the appropriate service action to begin. Call home can be done through the HMC or most non-HMC managed systems through Electronic Service Agent™ running on top of the operating system. While configuring call home is optional, clients are encouraged to implement this feature in order to obtain service enhancements such as reduced problem determination and faster and potentially more accurate transmittal of error information. In general, using the call home feature can result in increased system availability. The Electronic Service Agent application can be configured for automated call home. Refer to the next section for specific details on this application.

    IBM Electronic Services

    Electronic Service Agent and the IBM Electronic Services web portal comprise the IBM Electronic Services solution, which is dedicated to providing fast, exceptional support to IBM customers. IBM Electronic Service Agent is a no-charge tool that proactively monitors and reports hardware events such as system errors, performance issues, and inventory. Electronic Service Agent can help focus on the customer's company business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues.

    System configuration and inventory information collected by Electronic Service Agent also can be viewed on the secure Electronic Services web portal and used to improve problem determination and resolution between the customer and the IBM support team. As part of an increased focus to provide even better service to IBM customers, Electronic Service Agent tool configuration and activation comes standard with the system. In support of this effort, a new HMC External Connectivity security whitepaper has been published, which describes data exchanges between the HMC and the IBM Service Delivery Center (SDC) and the methods and protocols for this exchange. To read the whitepaper and prepare for Electronic Service Agent installation, go to the "Security" section at

    Benefits: increased uptime

    Electronic Service Agent is designed to enhance the warranty and maintenance service by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can optimize the time monitoring the symptoms, diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. And 24x7 monitoring and reporting means no more dependency on human intervention or off-hours customer personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

    Security: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to be secure in monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM. The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to securely transmit either through the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem to provide customers a single point of exit from their site. Communication is one way. Activating Electronic Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a customer's system.

    For additional information, refer to IBM Electronic Service Agent

    http://www-01.ibm.com/support/esa/

    More accurate reporting

    Because system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support Center in conjunction with the service request, customers are not required to find and send system information, decreasing the risk of misreported or misdiagnosed errors. Once inside IBM, problem error data is run through a data knowledge management system and knowledge articles are appended to the problem record.

    Customized support

    Using the IBM ID entered during activation, customers can view system and support information in the My Systems and Premium Search sections of the Electronic Services website.

    The Electronic Services web portal is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. This web portal enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems. The newly improved My Systems and Premium Search functions make it even easier for Electronic Service Agent-enabled customers to track system inventory and find pertinent fixes.

    My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by IBM Electronic Service Agent. Reports are available for any system associated with the customer's IBM ID. Premium Search combines the function of search and the value of Electronic Service Agent information, providing advanced search of the technical support knowledgebase. Using Premium Search and the Service Agent information that has been collected from the system, customers are able to see search results that apply specifically to their systems.

The Power E850 server must be installed in a rack with a rear door and side panels for EMC compliance. The native HMC Ethernet ports must use shielded Ethernet cables.

Note: Government regulations (such as those prescribed by OSHA or European Community Directives) may govern noise level exposure in the workplace and may apply to you and your server installation. This IBM system is available with an optional acoustical door feature that can help reduce the noise emitted from this system. The actual sound pressure levels in your installation depend upon a variety of factors, including the number of racks in the installation; the size, materials, and configuration of the room where you designate the racks to be installed; the noise levels from other equipment; the room ambient temperature, and employees' location in relation to the equipment. Further, compliance with such government regulations also depends upon a variety of additional factors, including the duration of employees' exposure and whether employees wear hearing protection. IBM recommends that you consult with qualified experts in this field to determine whether you are in compliance with the applicable regulations.

Hardware Management Console (HMC) machine code

If attaching an HMC to a new server or adding function to an existing server that requires a firmware update, the HMC machine code may need to be updated. To determine the HMC machine code level required for the firmware level on any server, go to the following website to access the Fix Level Recommendation Tool (FLRT) on or after the planned availability date for this product. FLRT will identify the correct HMC machine code for the selected system firmware level

http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/POWER8

If a single HMC is attached to multiple servers, the HMC machine code level must be updated at a minimum to the server with the most recent firmware level. All prior levels of server firmware are supported with the latest HMC machine code level.

Multiple POWER8 processor-based system nodes can be supported by a single HMC.

If an HMC is used to manage any POWER8 processor-based system node, the HMC must be 7042 -- CR5 through CR8 rack models -- or 7042-C08 deskside model, or later.

When PowerVC is enabled, 4 GB of RAM is recommended. To use the Enhanced login mode, 8 GB is recommended. HMC 7042-CR5 ships with a default of 2 GB RAM.

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.

Products -- terms and conditions

Warranty period

This product is provided with a one-year standard warranty. For your convenience, IBM has provided two additional years of extended warranty services plus an upgrade to 24x7 coverage to make this offering. Consult with your advisors about the appropriate financial treatment for this offering. See your sales representative for other available service options.

An IBM part or feature installed during the initial installation of an IBM machine is subject to a full warranty effective on the date of installation of the machine. An IBM part or feature that replaces a previously installed part or feature assumes the remainder of the warranty period for the replaced part or feature. An IBM part or feature added to a machine without replacing a previously installed part or feature is subject to a full warranty effective on its date of installation. Unless specified otherwise, the warranty period, type of warranty service, and service level of a part or feature are the same as those for the machine in which it is installed.

Warranty services

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the types of warranty service specified for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone, or electronically via an IBM website. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. If applicable to your product, parts considered Customer Replaceable Units (CRUs) will be provided as part of the machine's standard warranty service.

Service levels are response-tieme objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country-specific and location-specific information.

CRU Service

IBM provides replacement CRUs to you for you to install. CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with your machine and are available from IBM upon your request. CRUs are designated as being either a Tier 1 (mandatory) or a Tier 2 (optional) CRU.

Tier 1 (mandatory) CRU

Installation of Tier 1 CRUs, as specified in this announcement, is your responsibility. If IBM installs a Tier 1 CRU at your request, you will be charged for the installation.

Tier 1 CRUs are those parts which require minimal effort, skill, or experience in order to service. Tier 1 items are mandatory CRUs when base 9 x 5 next-business-day warranty or maintenance is specified in the terms and conditions contract and is in force. However, if the customer elects not to perform Tier 1 service, an IBM SSR may be contracted at an additional service charge to perform the service. If the customer has 7x24 warranty or maintenance in force, then all parts, Tier 1 and Tier2, may be replaced or serviced by a SSR without an additional charge.

The following parts have been designated as Tier 1 CRUs:

  • Keyboard
  • Mouse
  • Display
  • Mounting hardware
  • Fans
  • Line power cord
  • Power supply
  • DASD - HDD/SDD (disk drives and solid-state drives)
  • Ethernet adapters
  • Control panel
  • FSP card and cable
  • PCIe Adapters
  • PCIe Optional Adapter Card
  • Accelerator Cards
  • Rear USB Cable
  • DVD
  • TOD battery Card
  • DDR3 memory DIMMs
  • I/O Voltage regulator module
  • Processor Voltage regulator module
Tier 2 (optional) CRU

You may install a Tier 2 CRU yourself or request IBM to install it, at no additional charge.

Based upon availability, CRUs will be shipped for next-business-day (NBD) delivery. IBM specifies, in the materials shipped with a replacement CRU, whether a defective CRU must be returned to IBM. When return is required, return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU. You may be charged for the replacement CRU if IBM does not receive the defective CRU within 15 days of your receipt of the replacement.

The following parts have been designated as Tier 2 CRUs:

  • SAS DASD / Media Backplane
  • Processor and Memory Backplane
  • Processor modules
CRU and On-site Service

At IBM's discretion, you will receive specified CRU service, or IBM will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the IBM machine. The area must be clean, well-lit, and suitable for the purpose.

Service level is:

  • 9 hours per day, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, next-business-day response. Calls must be received by 5:00 p.m. local time in order to qualify for next-business-day response.

Non-IBM parts service

IBM is now shipping machines with selected non-IBM parts that contain an IBM field replaceable unit (FRU) part number label. These parts are to be serviced during the IBM machine warranty period. IBM is covering the service on these selected non-IBM parts as an accommodation to their customers, and normal warranty service procedures for the IBM machine apply.

Warranty service upgrades

During the warranty period, warranty service upgrades provide an enhanced level of On-site Service for an additional charge. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. See the Warranty services section for additional details.

IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically by access to an IBM website. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts.
