International. Abstract. IBM HACMP 5.x for AIX 5L (V, V, and the new HACMP ) has introduced major changes to the well-proven IBM high availability solution for IBM eServer pSeries clusters.

The changes include product usability enhancements, performance, and integration with the IBM strategic On Demand initiative. This IBM Redbooks publication provides. eServer™ pSeries High Performance Switch (HPS).

The HPS is a network data transfer system using technology based on the architecture of SP Switch and SP Switch2. This technology is available for the IBM eServer™ p5 / and clustered servers. It can be used to help increase the communication.

2 IBM Eserver xSeries Technical Introduction Overview of the x The key features of the x include: Four-way capable server in a rack-dense 3U form factor. IBM Eserver X3 Architecture, the XAe third-generation chipset.

Models with one Intel® Xeon MP processor, up to GHz and 1 MB L2 cache, which can be upgraded to four-way. IBM eServer pSeries +: High-End Unix Server 06 August Ian Brown Document Type: Product Report Note Number: DPRO The p+ is IBM's most powerful Unix server. It offers excellent performance and reliability, but POWER4 has limited longevity.

Unlike other servers supporting solely high performance Linux needs, IBM eServer pSeries provides leadership price/performance with high reliability and a roadmap to provide the customer with investment protection.

This IBM Redbook provides information and guidelines for how to deploy Linux on IBM eServer pSeries clusters. IBM RS/ Performance and Sizing,” that was published in Obsolete information was taken out, still relevant information was updated, and new information was added to this new Edition.

While the book was produced, IBM RS/ was re-branded to IBM ^ pSeries. As a conclusion to that. The IBM Hardware Management Console for pSeries (HMC) is a tool used for administration and management of IBM eServer pSeries servers. It was first announced in late with the IBM eServer pSeries Modelthe first partitioning-capable pSeries server model, and has been supporting the other partitioning-capable pSeries server models.

IBM RS/ to IBM eServer pSeries, p for POWER; IBM Netfinity to IBM eServer xSeries, x for eXtended architecture (with respect to "commodity" Intel-based servers) IBM S/ to IBM eServer zSeries, z for Zero downtime; In announced a new brand, IBM System as an umbrella for all IBM server and storage brands.

The name change was finished Developer: IBM (–). IBM eServer Certification Study Guide - pSeries AIX System Administration by Ibm Download Book (Respecting the intellectual property of others is utmost important to us, we make every effort to make sure we only link to legitimate sites, such.

History. RS/ was originally a line of workstations and servers. The server line was then renamed to the eServer pSeries in as part of its e-Server branding initiative. Inwith the advent of the POWER5 processor, the family was rebranded the eServerfollowing IBM's move to streamline its server and storage brands, worldwide, and.

This release of IBM Parallel Environment for AIX 5L contains the following enhancements: IBM eServer ® pSeries High Performance Switch running on AIX 5L V Parallel Environment now operates with the HPS using low-level application programming interface (LAPI) to optimize Message Passing Interface (MPI) performance over the switch in.

IBM Press Room - IBM today re-energized the $ billion[1] entry UNIX(R) server space with the introduction of a POWER4-based eServer that offers 84 percent[2] greater performance than Sun's just announced V An entry-level version of IBM's groundbreaking IBM eServer p, the IBM eServer p targets the heart of Sun Microsytems' product lineup -- the up-to-four.

High Performance Switch (HiPS) SP Switch SP Switch2 Colony Federation HPS Currently, IBM is referring to its latest switch network as the "High Performance Switch" or just "HPS", which interestingly enough, is similar to what the very first switch network was called in. IBM Cluster is a highly scalable cluster solution that will support up to 64 p nodes with up to processors.

IBM plans to extend the capabilities of the IBM eServer pSeries High Performance Switch (HPS) to the IBM eServer p5 system by the second quarter of Performance Management for IBM e-server iSeries and pSeries: A Systems Management Guide [IBM Redbooks] [Susan Powers] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

rPerf (Relative Performance) is an estimate of commercial processing performance relative to other pSeries systems.

It is derived from an IBM analytical model which uses characteristics from IBM internal workloads, TPC and SPEC benchmarks. The IBM p is the newest, and smallest, server in IBM’s recently enhanced pSeries line of UNIX systems. Available in both 4U rack-mount and deskside models, the p can be configured with one or two POWER4+ processors and offers the best price/performance of any entry-level IBM UNIX server.
