70 HP innovations - glossary Term HP Smart Socket guide Definition The HP Smart Socket guide enables the addition or upgrade of processors without fear of bending pins that lead to motherboard failure and replacement. Damaged pins are the most common cause for system board replacement. HP SmartMemory HP SmartMemory is a unique technology for ProLiant Gen8 servers that unlocks certain performance and power efficiency features.. It enables ProLiant Gen8 systems to reliably identify and verify whether installed memory has passed HP s qualification and test processes. Because the memory is authenticated, extended memory features can be enabled through the system ROM. HP SmartMemory will provide a platform to allow future memory-related support enhancements through HP Active Health System, System Insight Management and Insight Control management software. HP SmartDrive Warns if attempt is made to remove the wrong drive in a RAID array set when drives are in rebuild mode. Avoids the #1 cause of data loss due to manual error. do not remove LED which only lights up when the RAID array is compromised. FlexibleLOM Card with embedded network adapters ports allowing choice of Ethernet technology, speed, OEM vendor, and number of ports (2 or 4). FlexFabric 512MB FBWC Virtual Connect FlexFabric is an extension to Virtual Connect Flex-10 which leverages the new Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) protocols. Used as an option for their implementation of BladeSystem and Virtual Connect. Flash-backed write cache improves disk write performance as data is temporarily stored in the write cache, which uses DRAM and is substantially quicker when compared to the disk drive. Intelligent Provisioning Active Health System HP Agentless Management HP Smart Update Simple tool that automates server setup and configuration tasks, eliminating physical media such as CDs and DVDs. Includes pre-boot display for early status and setup information that appears three seconds after power-up: guided, profile-driven or scripted approaches, automatic updates for firmware and drivers. Configuration changes logged in real time, accessible by a HP services professional for problem resolution. Stores the data required for problem resolution, reducing time needed with support to reproduce or describe errors. Agentless monitoring provides ease-of-use, fast implementation and lowered maintenance costs and effort. An automated system maintenance tool that systematically updates servers and blade infrastructures. It manages deployment of firmware, drivers and tools to execute system updates in parallel across the infrastructure. Reduces complexity by providing comprehensive discovery, analysis and compliance-oriented reporting. Updates can be scheduled, staged and deployed across hundreds of servers in many different configurations. 70 Sensors that enable: automatic tracking of IT assets; reduced energy use and increase power capacity by improving airflow efficiency; automatic tracking of Copyright 2012 Hewlett-Packard Development power usage Company, per L.P. rack The and information server. contained herein is subject to change without notice. 3D Sea of Sensors

71 BL660c Gen8 availability feature details Memory RAS Data Bus ECC protection Advanced ECC / SDDC Rank Sparring (OnLine Spare) Demand Scrubbing Patrol Scrubbing Failed DIMM Isolation Memory Thermal Control DIMM Address/Control Bus Parity Protection Lockstep Memory Mode Description/comments Automatic correction from a single data bit error and detection of double data error bits. Often called single error correction/double error detection (SEC/DED). Continued memory operation in the event of a single memory device failure. Allows removal of a single DRAM from the memory map if it exhibits a failure and recovers its data into a new device. Support for both x4 and x8 SDDC. Dynamic fail-over to a spare DIMM rank or spare rank pair behind the same memory controller. No OS involvement. Cannot be enabled concurrently with memory mirroring. HP offers the rank sparing rather than DIMM sparing as rank sparing uses less spare memory resulting in less overhead. Writes corrected data back to the memory once a correctable error is detected on a read transaction. Proactively searches the system memory repairing correctable errors. Patrol and Demand scrubbing work together to prevent accumulation of correctable errors and reducing the likelihood of unplanned downtime. Identifies a specific failing DIMM lockstep pair thereby enabling the user to replace only the failed DIMM pair. Identifies a single DIMM for correctable errors and DIMM pair for uncorrectable errors. Used to prevent DIMMs from overheating. Achieved by slowing down the memory access rate. Temperature monitored by DIMM sensor. Methods to detect and protect command and address errors. Corrects a single x8 DRAM device failure on a DIMM. The DIMMs in each paired memory channel must have identical HP part numbers. 71

Automatic correction from a single data bit error and detection of double data error bits on the memory data bus. Corrupt data is contained before it is consumed to ensure data corruption does not occur. Allows for baseboard management controller (BMC) to read and log processor information out of band (OOB). Description/comments Automatically detects data errors using a checksum of either 8 bits or 16 bits. Retransmits when a transient error is detected on the QPI link. Enhanced PCIe reporting features such as finer granularity in defining the error type, ability to specify the severity of each uncorrectable error, error logging support, ability to identify the source of an error, and more. 73
