Commands to list hardware components - rx7620

There are two rx7620s running HP-UX, in different locations that we can not physically get to. The Sys. Admin. inherited these systems and he is not sure what he has. We need to get a component list to plan some upgrades.

He knows one system has 4 CPUs and the other has 6. They both have 1.1GHz mx2 processors but, he is not sure if he has 2 of these dual core which would give him 4 CPUs or, if it is 4 dual core which would give him 8 total.

We also need to know what size memory DIMMs are in these systems so we know if we have any available slots.

We need to get all this information to know if we have available procesor and memory slots or if we will need to add a cell board.

How can we do this from the command line?
We tried print_manifest and it was mostly disk information. We tried machinfo and it just did not give enough detail.

Thanks.

Re: Commands to list hardware components - rx7620



cstm will probably give the info you want

(stm is the graphical version)

run the cstm program
#cstm

display a list of devices
cstm>map

select the device you want more info in
cstm> sel dev 1

collect the information on the device(s)
cstm>info

display the results
cstm>infolog

Re: Commands to list hardware components - rx7620

Hi,

you should use stm to get a very detailed information about the memory configuration.
This tool will show you the DIMM population and size and the free slots.

For the Itanium family, stm can't get so much information.

You should run

/usr/contrib/bin/machinfo

and read the results. The new dual-core CPUs are listed as

processor family: 32 Intel(R) Itanium 2 9000 series

(Intels 9000 series is the Montecito chip - Itanium 2 dual-core)

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Commands to list hardware components - rx7620

Thanks everyone.
We could not get XWindows to work so xstm was a no go.
Access to the system console is tightly restricted so we were not able to try the Management Processor (mp).

We are trying to get information on the processor sockets used and available on the cell board and "machinfo" does not give us that detail.

The Admin. is going to try the steps DCE posted. We were able to run "cstm" but, did not run "info" on any of the specific devices.

"machinfo" does tell us there are 4 CPUs, with a clock speed of 1100 MHz. These are the mx2 processors, not Montecito.

Knowing these are mx2 dual core processors my concern is how "machinfo" is reporting this. Is that 2 dual core processors, using two sockets on the cell board, for a total of 4 CPUs. If so, that leaves us two sockets available for additional processors.

Or, is "machinfo" not aware of dual cores and is reporting that 4 CPUs is really all 4 sockets used?

Does any one know how "machinfo" reports this?

Thank you.

Re: Commands to list hardware components - rx7620

Actually, mx2 is dual-processor module consisting of 2x Itanium 2 ( Medison) processors. A single mx2 module occupies a single slot on the board.

You can check using command
# echo "sc product cpu;info;wait;il" | cstm | grep -i "Serial Number"

There would be a same serial number ( module serial number ) for each pair of CPU ( separate serial numbers for each CPU on the module).

I think machinfo command shows the actual number of CPUs seens from within OS environment irrespective of dual-processor modules or dual-core CPUs installed. Saying that, you might have 2x mx2 modules installed who occupy two slots on the board and reported as 4 CPUs by machinfo.

Refer the mx2 white paper at

http://search.hp.com/redirect.html?type=REG&qt=mx2&url=http%3A//h71028.www7.hp.com/ERC/downloads/mx2_white_paper.pdf%3Fjumpid%3Dreg_R1002_USEN&pos=8

Re: Commands to list hardware components - rx7620

Just to add this for future reference - with 11.31 it looks like this:

$ /usr/contrib/bin/machinfo
CPU info:
1 Intel(R) Itanium 2 9000 series processor (1.59 GHz, 18 MB)
532 MT/s bus, CPU version C2
2 logical processors (2 per socket)

Memory: 4065 MB (3.97 GB)
...


The information
2 logical processors (2 per socket)
will clearly indicate dual core CPUs

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Commands to list hardware components - rx7620

Torsten,
Thanks for adding the update. Another indicator is the
"(1.59 GHz, 18 MB)".
This is obviously a dual core Montecito processor as they come in 12, 18 or 24MB L3 cache configurations.

Thanks.
