12 H C R U6 pseries IBM eserver pseries Rear View of p615 Rack Model server server Two hot-plug AC power supplies with dual isolated line cords Parallel Three serial ports (S1, S2, S3) Mfg. Diagnostic port (not for client use) S2 S3 Rack indicator light port S1 HMC 1 HMC 2 10/100 Ethernet 10/100/1000 Ethernet Six hot-plug PCI-X slots: Three long 64-bit 133 MHz 3.3v One short 64-bit 133 MHz 3.3v Two short 32-bit 66 MHz 3.3v

13 p615 Memory Quad Positioning Main memory ranges from 1GB to 16GB ECC DDR SDRAM. Memory is configured in two quads on the planar board, and is pre-balanced by design for optimal performance with each quad split between two synchronous memory interface (SMI) controllers. Plan ahead to reach desired maximum memory to avoid discarding memory. 1GB quad = 4 X 256MB DIMMs 2GB quad = 4 X 512MB DIMMs 4GB quad = 4 X 1GB DIMMs 8GB quad = 4 X 2GB DIMMs SMI L3 Shared L2 Quad 1 Quad 2 SMI Distributed switch

17 IBM pseries H C R U6 pseries server server H C R U6 pseries 24x7 IBM eserver pseries POWER4+ Reliability Across the Product Line pseries server Mainframe-inspired RAS Reliability, Availability and Serviceability Self- Protecting Self- Configuring Self- Optimizing Self- Healing server First Failure Data Capture DDR ECC Chipkill memory Bit-steering/redundant memory Memory soft scrubbing Redundant power, fans Dynamic Processor Deallocation Deallocate PCI-X bus, L2/L3 cache Persistent memory deallocation Hot-plug PCI-X slots, fans, power Internal LED diagnostics Hot-swappable disk drives

18 First Failure Data Capture Technology CPU L1 Cache L2/L3 Cache Error Checkers Fault Isolation Register (FIR) (unique fingerprint of each error captured) Service Processor Old Failure Recreate Strategy Run diagnostic test cases during service call Repair based on test case symptom Questionable correlation to original problem Development focus on improved test cases Open service action plan if failure not recreated Test cases used to try to isolate failures and verify correct operation Disk Memory Log Error Nonvolatile RAM Reliably identify each failing component, reducing costly downtime First Failure Data Capture: an IBM Exclusive Specialized hardware designed to capture failure data at time of failure Repair based on root-cause analysis Direct correlation to original client problem Engineering focus on built-in error detection and capture Service action plan driven by captured failure information Test cases used to only to verify correct operation

19 Start Off With Quality-based Design Fault Avoidance Designing extra quality into system to keep errors from ever happening Mainframe-class components and technologies - Reduced power consumption, cooler operating temperatures for increased reliability

20 ECC Memory Integrity and Availability Memory scrubbing for soft single-bit errors that are corrected in the background while memory is idle, to help prevent multiple-bit errors. Failing memory bit steered to spare memory chip Chipkill X X... Dynamically reassign memory I/O via bit-steering if error threshold is reached on same bit Spare memory chip Scatter memory chip bits across four separate ECC words for Chipkill recovery Bit-scattering allows normal single bit ECC error processing, thereby keeping system running with a Chipkill failure. Bit-steering allows memory lines from a spare memory chip to be dynamically reassigned to a memory module with a faulty line to keep system running. If all bits are used up on the spare memory chips, and threshold is reached, the Service Processor will be invoked to request deferred maintenance at a time acceptable to client.

21 Built-in Redundancies for Non-stop Operation N+1 Redundancy Use of redundancy to remain operational with full resources Redundant spare memory chips Redundant fans - Fans will speed up to try to compensate for failed fan Redundant power supplies (optional)

22 p615 PCI Bus and Card Error Recoveries PCI-X Controller X Problem with damaged connection results in PCI-X bus error - That particular slot is varied offline by system - All other slots remain active - System stays operational without the slot active - If PCI card is damaged, replace with new one - If slot is damaged, plan for maintenance at client s convenience

23 Replacement of Parts While System Runs Concurrent Maintenance Online hot-plug of defective electromechanical components keeps system operational Disk drives Cooling fans Power subsystems PCI, PCI-X adapter cards

24 Quicker Service for Client Convenience Service Productivity Increasing service productivity means more client uptime Internal LED diagnostics identify components that require service LEDs on I/O provide status of PCI-X slots and disk drives for power, hot-swap and need for service
