Re: superdome addition cpu

You would ned to add cells to this SuperDome, as the cells are currently full, or you would need to upgrade to the newer CPU/CEll board types that hav etwo cpu's per socket.

Re: superdome addition cpu

Hi Zungwon,

You need the add additional cellboards. Each cellboard can have 4 cpu.
In the configuration you have now.

Re: superdome addition cpu

Dear Zungwon,

As you superdome has 4 cell boards and each cell board is capable of having 4 CPUs, as of now you cant add any CPUs.

You may consider adding a Cellboard along with CPU and Menory to the server.

With Regards,

Siva.

Re: superdome addition cpu

so you guys mean this system is full of cpu, no more additional cpu in this system.
righit? so to add more cpu, it needs to be install cell board. right?
I thought 4 cell is blank and so just add cpu.
So, it has to be added cell and cpu.how many cpu and cell are possible to add?

Re: superdome addition cpu

Hi Zungwon,

Your soperdome can take 8 cellboards.
Already there are 4 cellboards installed. So you can add 4 additional cellboards each carrying 4 cpu. This mean you can dubble your server.

p.s try to make it 350 of 350

Re: superdome addition cpu

Hi,

You don't mention whether this is a PA-RISC or Itanium 'Dome...BUT...I suspect it's Itanium simply due to the CPU clock speeds.
Now, the dual core Itanium cell boards aren't out yet, I believe. But if they were you'd have free CPU sockets on those cell boards.
So as it stands now to add more CPU you *will* have to add cell board(s) - up to 4 more - to get to the max CPU count of 32.
When the dual-core boards are available you'll be able to get up to 64 CPUs in a single cabinet.
It should be noted that dual-core PA-RISC cell boards are available now that would allow 32 CPUs on just 4 cells.

Rgds,
Jeff

Re: superdome addition cpu

You mean ,due to the system 16-way had ocuppied aleady,no more add cpu. right?
so what can I do for adding cpu?
change backplane is possible to add cpu.
cell board, and dual core cpu.
and anything else?

Re: superdome addition cpu

Zungwon,

Please read carefully.
You still can add atleast 16 cpu.
Only to add this cpu's you have to add new cellboards in the system without changing any kind of cellboards.
If you want more then 32 cpu in your superdome you have to change the cellboards which can take dualcore pa-risk cpu. then your superdome can take to 64 cpu.

Re: superdome addition cpu

I've heard this system didn't add cpu due to 16way system.
To add cpu and cell, it has to be changed into another backplane.

Re: superdome addition cpu

Hi Zungwon,
I'm not sure, That was for PA-risk not for Itianium. But the most easy way is to let HP sort this out. Just say what you want an the wil get back to you what has to be done.
For itianium i thought you only need a firmware upgrade. and additional cellboards.
