Re: No Of cell boards

Brian,

You can check with :

# parstatus -X

also from GSP.

Re: No Of cell boards

Brian,

You can also use ,

# parstatus -V

Verbose mode. To get detailinformation:

Additional information displayed with -V
includes:

For Cabinet:
* Status of each of the cabinet blower(s)
* Status of each of the I/O fan(s)
* Status of each of the bulk power supply(s)
* Status of each of the backplane power board(s)

For Partition:
* Primary, alternate and secondary boot path settings
* PDC, IODC version numbers
* Memory interleaving / local memory settings
* Cells summary information
* I/O chassis summary information
* Hyper-Threading information

For Cell:
* Details of each cpu on the cell
* Details of memory on the cell
* Memory interleaving / local memory settings
* Details of Hyper-Threading
--------------------------------------------



Enjoy and cheers,
Raj.

Re: No Of cell boards

Complex Name : Complex 01
Complex Capacity
Compute Cabinet (2 cell capable) : 1

so how may cell boards ? is it 2?

Thanks

Re: No Of cell boards

Brian ,

Yes , it is 2 .

More accurately you can use :

# parstatus -c , to see the details of the cell.

ex: # parstatus -c 0 or # parstatus -c 1

Cheers,
Raj.

how can i know how many CPU's are on the other cell?

THanks

Re: No Of cell boards

Brian,

You can see the cpu details from logging to the GSP console:

Login to the console/GSP:
Go to GSP Main menu:

GSP MAIN MENU:


CO: Consoles

VFP: Virtual Front Panel

CM: Command Menu

CL: Console Logs

SL: Show chassis Logs

HE: Help

X: Exit Connection
-------------------------------

GSP> CM


1.You can use DF,

DF: To Display FRU information .

2. Also you can use CL
CP: To display partition cell assignments.

3. From the PS command , you can see the cpu details , after selecting the cell number, like the below details:


PDH status LEDs: ***_

CPUs

0 1 2 3

Populated * * * *
-------------------------------------








Cheers,
Raj.

Re: No Of cell boards

Brian,

From the output you have given its clear you have 4 cpu in cellborad1.

# parstatus -c 1
[Cell]
CPU Memory Use
OK/ (GB) Core On
Hardware Actual Deconf/ OK/ Cell Next Par
Location Usage Max Deconf Connected To Capable Boot Num
========== ============ ======= ========= =================== ======= ==== ===
cab0,cell1 active core 4/0/8 12.0/ 0.0 cab0,bay0,chassis1 yes yes 0
----------------------------------------

While pasting the output looks like you have cutted down the top line , that shows the CPU and Memory.

In the above output,
4/0/8 shows --> CPU OK/ Deconf/ Max.



To check each patition you can use this command, and the output will display with the cell and cpu informations:

# parstatus -V -p 0
or
# parstatus -V -p 1
or
# parstatus -V -p 2 etc.

Hope you got a clear picture now.

Cheers,
Raj.

Re: No Of cell boards

Its very simple to check how many cell boards you have , you didnot used the -C option so far.

Here is an example of containing 8 cell boards:

# parstatus -C
[Cell]
CPU Memory Use
OK/ (GB) Core On
Hardware Actual Deconf/ OK/ Cell Next Par
Location Usage Max Deconf Connected To Capable Boot Num
========== ============ ======= ========= =================== ======= ==== ===
cab0,cell0 active core 4/0/4 8.0/ 0.0 cab0,bay1,chassis3 yes yes 0
cab0,cell1 active core 4/0/4 8.0/ 0.0 cab0,bay0,chassis3 yes yes 3
cab0,cell2 active base 4/0/4 2.0/ 0.0 - no yes 4
cab0,cell3 active base 4/0/4 8.0/ 0.0 - no yes 3
cab0,cell4 active core 4/0/4 10.0/ 0.0 cab0,bay0,chassis1 yes yes 1
cab0,cell5 active core 4/0/4 8.0/ 0.0 cab8,bay0,chassis1 yes yes 4
cab0,cell6 active core 4/0/4 8.0/ 0.0 cab0,bay1,chassis1 yes yes 2
cab0,cell7 active base 4/0/4 8.0/ 0.0 - no yes 4

--------------------------------------------


As per your output , it shows you have 1 cell board with 4 CPU.


Enjoy and cheers,
Raj.

Re: No Of cell boards

Brian,

Also it will be a good idea to check from the GSP , using DF and CP .

DF: To display FRU informations.
CP: To display partition cell assignments.


GSP> CM
Then

GSP:CM> DF

and

GSP:CM>CP
-------------

looks like it has two cell boards from this..but no cpu's mentioned on the cellboard 0 and 4 cpu's in cell board 1 is that correct

thx

Re: No Of cell boards

cell baord 0 is powered OFF and it is not in use.

Cell baord 1 is the only cell baord which is in use and there are 4 CPU installed on this cell board. However max 8 CPUs could be used on the server if you have a license.

Re: No Of cell boards

Hi,

the status of cell 0 is off:

cab0,cell0 power off ? ? ? ? yes 0

You cannot ask a device for its status when it is powered off.
Power on the cell and ask it again.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: No Of cell boards

Brian,

"can someone help with how many cell boards and cpu's on each with the above parstatus -C" :

1. You have 2 cell board on your rp7420 system. ( cell0 and cell1 )

2. cell board 0 is powerd off and will not return any status.(If you want to know about the cpu you have to check and look at the hardware manually after visiting the site.)

3. cell board 1 is active , and having 4 cpu , and can support maximum of 8 cpu.

cheers,
Raj.

Re: No Of cell boards

Brian,

You could also use Support Tools Manager.

cstm
map

This will display the components making up your machine. You can see the number of cells and cpu's.
