Re: understanding HP 9000 system models

Hi:

The "9000" notation signifies HP UNIX servers. The "800" series are servers and the "7xx" ones are workstations. The third field is the actual model. In the case where the "-75" is shown, this denotes a 750MHz processor for that model.

Regards!

Re: understanding HP 9000 system models

model prints the machine hardware model. Two or more fields may be
displayed: computer, model number, and sometimes the clock or an
additional model number.

Its output is similar to that of uname -m.

Here are examples of what the model command displays.

The model output below indicates an HP 9000 Model 715 with a 50 MHz
clock.

9000/715/50

The model output below indicates an HP 9000 879 K-Class model K260.

9000/879/K260

The model output below indicates an HP 9000 871 D-Class model D370.

9000/871/D370


refer to man page of model

# man model

Hi James R.

In your reply you said that 9000/785/J6000
is used as workstation. but in our project They have installed HP-UX 11.00 server.

can we install HP-UX 11.00 server in workstation.

Re: understanding HP 9000 system models

Hi Senthil,

You can install all versions in both servers and workstations.

Workstations are almost like servers except which will have graphical card and monitor.
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

That is correct. The J6000 is considered a WORKSTATION class machine.

>>but in our project They have installed
>>HP-UX 11.00 server.
>>can we install HP-UX 11.00 server in
>>workstation.

I'm not sure what you mean by this. Starting with HP-UX 11.0, HP did away with different versions of the OS for servers (800-series) and workstation (700-series) machines.

So HP-UX 11.0 is just HP-UX 11.0. Server or workstation is irrelevant.

Re: understanding HP 9000 system models

Hi,

see also this collection:
http://www.openpa.net/systems/

The J-class was a 'server-like' configuration - more space for RAM, disks and peripheral.
So a kind of server with 'cheaper' workstation equipment.

Re: understanding HP 9000 system models

In the past there were 2 major families of HP computers:

9000 series for hp-ux
e3000 series for MPe

The 9000 family has the 800 line for servers, the 700 line for workstations.


On older (very old now) servers you see only something like

9000/806
this was an E25 server

or

9000/981
this was the famous T600 server


These names were used up to hp-ux 9.x

Later servers get there "name" at the end of that string, e.g.

9000/811/D310

and again later they all are called "800" followed by their name, e.g.

9000/800/L1000

the appendix like 9000/800/L1000-44 the 44 means 440MHZ, sometimes this refers also to the number of CPUs or max. cores.




Some workstations were very close to the servers, so some were also called "800" in this string, but most have "785", like

9000/785/C8000 - the last RISC workstation.





BTW, newer Integrities are always

ia64 hp server ... or something, e.g.

ia64 hp server BL860c

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
