How to find physical sockets , number of cores on hpux 9000/rp4440 (pa risc 8800) server ?

We need info on hpux system for IBM. Cant figure if hpux9000/rp4440/hpux11.11 has how man y cores and sockets ?

 

Thanks

 NEED THE FOLLOWING INFO.

 

 

IBM calculates licenses via “PVU” which is a derived metric based on chipset.    As such, I need validation on the following criteria….

 

  1. Server model - HPUX 9000/RP4440
  2. Chipset - PARISC 8800
  3. Physical sockets ??? (HOW DO DETERMINE)
  4. Number of cores (either per socket or total, as long as its consistent) ??? (HOW DO DETERMINE)
  5. For anything virtual, we’ll need  both the VM/container specs and the specs of the physical host(s).

The rp4400 has 4 CPU sockets and always dual core CPUs.

 

Get the number of cores by running ioscan, devide the number by 2 and you know about the free and used sockets.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Thanks Torsten.

Using Sam or ioscan, i get this. Show 6 cpus (processeor) or is that cores ?  Does that mean I have 6 cpu x 2 cores=12 coress (if these are dual core cpus). And how do you calculate physical sockets ?

What you see are the cores, so you have 3 dual core CPUs.


Hope this helps!

Ok. Thanks. Last question. The physical sockets are always  4  on rp4440 regardless of how many cpus/cores I have ?.Right  ?

The rp4440 has always 4 CPU sockets and always dual core CPUs (either PA8800 or PA8900).

Hope this helps!

Thanks, Torsten. That was very helpful and now I can get IBM to license the product for me.

Here's a great secret to finding information about HP hardware: quickspecs

 

Just type this into Google:    quickspecs rp4440

 

or any other HP model. Quickspecs (from HP) gives you very detailed information about HP products.
