Re: Memory Capacity of a HP-UX rx6600 Server

hi,

check it with cstm/mstm how many modules are in the banks, and which size.


Memory Configuration
The HP Integrity rx6600 supports double data rate (DDR2) synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM) DIMMs with ECC and double chip spare protection. The HP Integrity rx6600 can be ordered with one of the following two memory carrier boards:

AD126A-Supports from 2 GB minimum to 96 GB maximum memory; 8.5 GB/s memory bandwidth. The AD126A can be replaced with the AD127A to increase maximum memory beyond 96-GB and to a maximum of 192-GB, or to increase memory bandwidth to 17.0 GB/s. Please note, there is no return credit for the AD126A.
AD127A-Supports from 2 GB minimum to 384 GB maximum memory; 17.0 GB/s memory bandwidth.
Memory Loading Rules
Memory must be installed in groups of four DIMMs, also known as quads
Each quad must consist of equal density DIMMs
Memory can be ordered in quads of 2 GB (4Ã 512MB), 4 GB (4Ã 1GB), 8 GB (4Ã 2GB), 16 GB (4Ã 4GB), or 32 GB (4x8GB)
Minimum memory is 2 GB (4Ã 512MB)
Maximum memory is 384 GB, using twelve 16 GB memory quads in memory carrier option AD127A
Memory must be loaded in the order depicted on the memory carrier board.
Arrange DIMMs so that the quads with the largest capacity are in the lowest numbered slots.
For best performance, all DIMM slots on both memory carrier boards should be populated with the same size DIMM.

Guys, Does anyone know if there is a command I can run on the server which would tell me what slots I've used and how many are still available ?

Thanks.

hi,

for example :

echo "selclass qualifier memory;info;wait;infolog" | cstm

You can run stm tool and then check memory information, then you can see all slots usage of your memory carrier.

So to understand and clarify, Would I be correct in saying there are another 8 slots available which we could put 2gb dimms into which would = 16gb ?

Re: Memory Capacity of a HP-UX rx6600 Server

hi,

from my first post :

Memory must be installed in groups of four DIMMs, also known as quads
Each quad must consist of equal density DIMMs
Memory can be ordered in quads of 2 GB (4Ã Â 512MB), 4 GB (4Ã Â 1GB), 8 GB (4Ã Â 2GB), 16 GB (4Ã Â 4GB), or 32 GB (4x8GB)

so if you buy 8x2 GB it should work, but maybe it will be better to use 4x4 GB to have some free slots for the future, but before you order some memmory to the server, you should contact HP ( technical support/ presales ) if its possible to make it.

Re: Memory Capacity of a HP-UX rx6600 Server

Thanks Michal for your help, just one last quick question, for the rx6600, what memory DIMM type would it use ?

hi,

on the attached picture, check the "Memory Options" there are Product Numbers of the memmory kit, and also type.

Re: Memory Capacity of a HP-UX rx6600 Server

You should buy memory from HP.

If you do not want to buy memory from HP, you should buy it from an outfit which explicitly states they will support the memory and that it will indeed "work" in the rx6600. If they have no idea what an rx6600 (or at least a "zx2-based HP Integrity system) happens to be, do not buy memory from them.
