  3. 3. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Notes: iSeries Announcement at A Glance On April 29 2002, IBM eServer iSeries announced the iSeries Model 890, featuring the award-winning1 POWER4 microprocessor. The i890 delivers unprecedented performance at the high end of the iSeries product line, with up to 1.85 times the performance of the existing i840 24-way server. IBM also adds to its significant investments in OS/400 with the new V5R2 that focuses on simplifying enterprise IT management for companies of any size. OS/400 V5R2 builds on the strong foundation of mainframe-class technologies delivered with OS/400 V5R1. Both releases feature mainframe-class technologies that have been integrated and simplified for customers in both small to medium sized businesses and for those larger customers running iSeries in datacenters. This announcement also signals new flexibility to add new workloads to iSeries with expanded options for Capacity Upgrade on Demand (CUoD), extending base processor features across the product line and sub-capacity pricing for WebSphere products running in logical partitions. The i890 availability with OS/400 V5R2 (English only with enablement for DBCS) begins on June 14, 2002. General availability for OS/400 V5R2 and additional language versions is planned for August 30, 2002. New Capacity on Demand options and base processor features for the i830 and i840 are available April 29, 2002. (1) In January 2000, the IBM POWER4 processor was awarded Microprocessor Report's 2000 Microprocessor Technology Award in recognition of its innovations and technology. April 30, 2002: -- IBM received the coveted Microprocessor Report Analysts' Choice Award for Best Workstation/Server Processor of 2001 at a microprocessor industry event. Cahners In-Stat/MDR, a leading microprocessor research firm, chose the POWER4 processor over Intel's Itanium and Compaq's Alpha 21264C 1 processors.

  5. 5. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Notes: Enterprise IT Management Challenge This chart describes information from IBM research with the institute of high performance of business computing. The study shows common approaches to large corporation's enabling of their e-business infrastructure, deploying multiple applications, resources and server workloads. Some companies will chose to deploy multiple server platforms in their datacenter, each optimized for a specific workload. Multiple server platforms, however, also lead to more complex management tasks, driving higher level skills requirements and associated costs. iSeries provides one opportunity to address the challenges associated with managing multiple workload environments by providing flexible consolidation options for multiple workloads, applications and operating system environments, all within a single server infrastructure. So, for example, iSeries can handle multiple partitions running database and transaction workloads, alongside WebSphere partitions for e-business application serving and Linux partitions for e-business infrastructure applications like web serving and firewalls. Combined with support for Windows-based applications, iSeries offers a single management infrastructure that can help customers reduce datacenter operations costs and total cost of ownership.

  8. 8. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Notes: IBM server POWER Processor Roadmap IBM's has a single roadmap for the POWER processor for deployment in both iSeries and pSeries products lines. Using the POWER processor family, iSeries has consistently delivered highly scalable 64-bit processors with exceptional performance to support the growth of our largest customers. In fact, the POWER4 is the 8th generation of 64-bit processors brought to market by IBM on the AS/400 and iSeries since 1995. IStar and SStar processors continue to provide a flexible price/performance options for our entry and midrange offerings, along with the flexibility to support both OS/400 V5R2 and V5R1.

  10. 10. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Notes: i890 with 32-way POWER4 Processor The introduction of POWER4 processor in the new 32-way i890, along with Capacity Upgrade on Demand processor features (one # 1610 per standby processor activation) delivers outstanding mainframe-class performance on iSeries. The i890 incorporates the latest advances in RISC technology with the IBM POWER4 processor. With up to 32 processors running at 1.3 GHz, on-chip L2 cache and new L3 cache, the i890 delivers up to 37,400 CPW or an 85% increase over the 24-way i840. It serves businesses that need a server capable of mainframe-class performance, but retains iSeries focus on simplicity and robust availability. Besides increased performance, the i890 also offers double the I/O capacity of previous iSeries servers, with up to 256 GB of memory, 72 TB of disk and up to 32 Integrated xSeries Adapters for attaching Windows-based xSeries servers. The name POWER4 refers not only to the processor, but also to the structure used to interconnect processor chips to form systems. POWER4 was designed to execute both commercial and technical applications supporting both iSeries and pSeries products, combining highly scalable compute intensive performance with exceptional transaction processing capabilities in a single processor. IBM POWER4 embodies both a hardware technology and an architecture that are employed together to design complete systems. The image shown in the chart contains a logical view of the IBM POWER4 chip, which contains two processors as well as the associated Level 1 and Level 2 data caches, the directory for the Level 3 cache, communication and control circuitry for chip-to-chip, module-to-module, and memory interfaces. Four POWER4 chips can be packaged on a single module to form an 8-way SMP, commonly referred to as a multi-chip module (MCM). Four such modules can be interconnected to form a 32-way SMP. POWER4 systems are designed to deliver balanced performance throughput. For example, as additional chips and MCMs are added to form larger SMP systems, additional resources such as memory capacities can also be increased.

CPW and Domino Mail and Calendaring Number of Users values are shown for relative ratings among iSeries systems. These ratings are at 70% CPU utilization and are not validated benchmark results. With the exception of i890, all of the processor features can run either OS/400 V5R1 or OS/400 V5R2 (some also support OS/400 V4R5* either in primary or secondary logical partitions). Of course, customers will be able to take advantage of OS/400 V5R2 across the entire iSeries product line and on selected AS/400 models including the 170, 7xx, 6xx, Sxx and 150. Note OS/400 V5R2 is not supported on AS/400 Models 4xx and 5xx. Note that i890 requires OS/400 V5R2 in the primary partition and all secondary partitions. SPD I/O is fully supported with V5R2 on iSeries and AS/400 servers that support the new release, with the exception of the i890 that is designed for HSL and does not support SPD I/O either directly or through migration towers. Planning for migrating from existing iSeries systems to i890 is highly recommended. Customers are recommended to review the planning information available through the following Web sites: InfoCenter: http://www.ibm.com/eserver/iseries/infocenter/ Planning: http://www.ibm.com/eserver/iseries/support/planning/ Migration: http://www.ibm.com/eserver/iseries/migration Additional IBM redbooks with 'how to' technical tips are also available to assist with migration planning, including the iSeries System Handbook and iSeries System Builder.

  16. 16. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Notes: Model 890 Additional Information The importance of a balanced system configuration is maybe even more important then ever. Therefore, when creating a configuration for a Model 890 sizing the memory, the required number of disk arms or LUNs with related FC adapters (#2766) and the correct number of other I/O features that are necessary to achieve acceptable performance, must be installed. The number of physical I/Os that may be requested must be comfortably satisfied by the number of disk arms available on the system. A good estimation for the number of disk arms required on a given configuration can be found by using the ODAC (online disk arm calculator) tool available on the Internet at: http://www-912.ibm.com/supporthome.nsf/document/23035736 From that page you can also link to: http://www-1.ibm.com/servers/eserver/iseries/perfmgmt/diskarm.htm where additional information can be found regarding the disk arm considerations on the iSeries server. Main Storage size is an other important issue. Since the Model 890 is using much faster processors with high caching capacities, the main storage rule of thumb for initial sizing should be at a minimum of 4GB per used processor. For more exact sizing, the available sizing tools should be used preferably with the correct performance data available for the expected workload. The rules for main storage on the Model 890 are explained later in this presentation. Note: The minimum main storage values of 16 GB (#0197 and #2487) or 24 GB (#0198 and #2488) are not recommended in performance critical environments, especially those using a significant number of Java-based applications.

  19. 19. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries There are eight new memory cards/features serving four capacity points of 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB. Each capacity point has both "inner" and "outer" card features. The correct plugging is to mirror images to fit physically different memory slots as follows: For the inner slots (slots 0,1,2 and 3) the following feature codes must be used in pairs: 4GB = #3020 8GB = #3015 16GB = #3035 32GB = #3017 For the outside slots (slots 4,5,6 and 7) the following feature codes must be used in pairs: 4GB = #3021 8GB = #3016 16GB = #3036 32GB = #3018 Additional plugging rules: Plug in pairs. Each pair must use identical features. On the Model 890 only two different sizes of memory cards are allowed. On top of this rule, when there are different size memory cards in a given configuration the different sizes must be adjacent in size. This means that you can't have for example 4GB and 16GB cards in a memory configuration. Allowed combinations are: all pairs of the same size, 4GB pairs with pairs of 8GB, 8GB pairs with 16GB pairs and pairs of 16GB with 32GB pairs. All slots should always be filled. Exception allowed for 16GB 24-Way and 24GB for 32-Way * The smallest memory capacities are not recommended for most customer configurations and should only be used when performance degradation is not of concern, perhaps in environments with very low CPU utilization. With these capacities the inner slots must be filled first and then slots 4 and 5.

  21. 21. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Notes: Flexible Storage Options with SAN Switch Fabric With OS/400 V5R1, IBM introduced Storage Area Network (SAN) capability on the iSeries, offering connectivity to a SAN fabric using the point-to-point and arbitrated loop topologies. This support enabled customers to connect multiple hosts to a single target device, such as a tape drive. With OS/400 V5R2. IBM has extended iSeries topology options to include switched fabric support, allowing customers to have connect multiple iSeries hosts to multiple target devices such as tape drives. Switch fabric support with OS/400 V5R2 also removes the requirement for the IBM 2109 switch to be configured as a hub. One of the key advantages with the switch fabric topology is the ability to connect multiple target devices through a single host fibre adapter. For example, with OS/400 V5R1, if a customer wanted to attach two tape devices to the iSeries across a SAN, they would need to have had 2 host fibre adapters (#2765) on the iSeries. Now with support for switch fabric, customers can attach both the devices through a single host fibre adapter via the IBM 2109 switch. As usual, planning for performance is essential when you are implementing a SAN fabric. The overall bandwidth available on the host adapter, combined with the speed of the adapter and SAN infrastructure play an important role during the configuration of the switch fabric. Zoning, or dividing, the switches for tape and disk I/O is highly recommended to avoid potential I/O conflicts. OS/400 V5R2 also supports 2 Gbps network speeds for the SAN fabric with existing fibre channel adapters for tape (#2765) and disk (#2766).

Using the cryptographic accelerator feature #4805 will have a reduction of up to 30 times less CPU cycles compared to #4801 / #4802 and will allow for up to 5 times more SSL processing throughput. Applications using SSL/TLS include those transferring payment information (e.g., credit card numbers) over the Internet, e.g., between a Web browser and a server in the case of B2C or between servers in the case of B2B. Establishing SSL/TLS secure Web connections requires very compute intensive cryptographic processing. Feature #4805 offloads cryptographic processing associated with the establishment of a SSL/TLS session, thus freeing the server for other processing. SSL handshake protocols employ a number of public- key cryptographic operations which are now offloaded from the main server processor. The Cryptographic Accelerator is targeted to high-transaction-rate secure Web applications using SSL/TLS. However, if your application requires a FIPS 140-1 certified, tamper-resistant module for storing cryptographic keys and/or requires financial PIN processing, then the IBM 4801/4802 Cryptographic Coprocessor PCI card should be your choice. Sometimes the PCI Cryptographic Accelerator feature #4805 is referred to as a 2058 because it reports that (VPD) number in the hardware resource list. Just as a reference: the #4801 was reporting in as a 4758 in the hardware resource list. You can have up to 4 accelerator features (2058) and up to 8 coprocessor features (4758) on your iSeries (see maximum capabilities depending on the iSeries model). A single card high performance cryptographic adapter (standard PCI card): Is designed and optimized for RSA encryption Has Onboard hardware-based RNG (random number generator) Includes five mounted IBM UltraCypher Cryptographic Engines There is very useful information regarding this new feature in InfoCenter under the following topics : Cryptographic hardware scenario: Enhance iSeries SSL performance Cryptographic hardware scenario: Protect private keys with cryptographic hardware Cryptographic hardware scenario: Write an OS/400 application to use the 4758 Cryptographic Coprocessor
  30. 30. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Notes: New Adapters -2 The #2849 100/10 Mb Ethernet adapter replaces the #2838 100/10 Mb Ethernet adapter. This PCI card offers a higher performance register interface together with the same functions as they exist on the #2838 today. For the existing two line PCI WAN adapter, there is a new replacement card available with feature code #2742. The #2742 offers a high availability chip design but no remote power on function. The same cables used for the existing #2745 can also be used for the new #2742. Find the cable feature code details that are available for both the two line PCI WAN adapters in the System Builder (SG24-2155-07). The two Line WAN Adapters with one integrated Modem - #2793 and #2794 both provide essentially the same functions as the base #9771 card. Both new two line WAN adapters with Integrated Modem have one RVX port that has same the capabilities as one of the ports on the #2742. The cable feature ordered for that port can also be found in the System Builder (SG24-2155-07). The first port on the two Line WAN Adapters #2793 and #2794 provides connectivity via an internal modem and supports V.92 56K Asynchronous PPP, V.92 data modem, V.44 data compression, V.34 FAX modem and FAX functions such as ECM and 2D / 1D conversions. This port does not support SDLC and Synchronous PPP. The available cable features for the internal modem port can be found in the System Builder (SG24-2155-07). The #2793 PCI internal modem port is the non-Complex Impedance Matching version and available in all countries except in Australia and New Zealand. The #2794 PCI internal modem port is the Complex Impedance Matching version and available only in Australia and New Zealand.

  42. 42. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Notes: V5R2 HSL Connectivity On the Model 890 only HSL towers are supported, NO other towers are allowed. There are special cables available for running the HSL connections from the Model 890 to the HSL expansion towers. The base I/O tower #9094 is connected to the model 890 with HSL-2 cables. Cables can be easily identified when looking at the connectors. HSL-2 connectors on any HSL cable are colored black. HSL connectors on any HSL cable are colored yellow. All other 8XX Models and the Model 270 use HSL cables with yellow connectors only. Optical HSL cables are common for all optical HSL connections between optical HSL adapters. The following is a summary of the available HSL cables: #1460 3m HSL Cable #1461 6m HSL Cable #1462 15m HSL Cable #1483 10m HSL-2 Cable (Model 890 only) #1485 15m HSL-2 Cable (Model 890 only) #1470 6m HSL Optical Cable #1471 30m HSL Optical Cable #1472 100m HSL Optical Cable #1473 250m HSL Optical Cable #1474 6m HSL to HSL-2 Cable (Model 890 only) #1475 10m HSL to HSL-2 Cable (Model 890 only) <<<< Additional HSL considerations: Reliability : The HSL loop architecture provides redundant paths between any two nodes on the loop. An optimum path is set up when configured at IPL time and the alternative direction around the loop is used if a failure prevents communication in the preferred direction. When there are IXS towers in a loop be aware of the fact that the xSeries server must be varied off from the iSeries before powering down that server. Powering down a HSL attached xSeries server without a vary off first will break the HSL loop. Number / type of cables and performance : To minimize the number of cables, the system can be configured by attaching the maximum number of I/O towers to an HSL Loop before using another HSL loop, but, to maximize performance, the system can be configured by spreading out the I/O towers across the greatest number of HSL loops possible. When configuring optical HSL cables, remember that the total loop speed is only 500MB per second instead of 1GB per second. HLS attachment has a planned attachment capacity of higher speeds, but at this time there is no announced availability date.
  43. 43. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries HSL Cluster Connectivity Up to three CEC nodes in a HSL loop No external Towers allowed in this loop Single loop servers (270, 820) limited to two CEC nodes Model 890 Up to 14 loops Copper and optical Maximum six I/O towers per loop Up to four switchable towers per loop Maximum three per segment Total maximum of nine towers per loop Including IXS with IXA
  44. 44. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Notes: HSL Cluster Connectivity Connecting up to three iSeries servers together using a single HSL loops when they have cluster enabled HSL adapters can be accomplished in V5R2 when there are no other HSL nodes on that same loop (this includes internal nodes). Any I/O node in the HSL loop will restrict the number of CEC nodes in that same loop to two. Since the model 270 and the model 820 both have a CEC HSL node and a internal I/O node on their single HSL loop, they can only participate in a HLS cluster loop with maximum two server CEC nodes. The models 830 /840 and 890 however all have the capability to use one or more ports of their cluster enabled adapters exclusively for attaching CEC HSL nodes only. Switchable towers can be connected between cluster nodes in an other HSL loop. But that HLS loop can by definition only contain two CEC nodes. There are many HSL configurations possible, especially with models that have multiple HSL loops. However, there are a number of rules that have to be respected and even then, many functionally supported configurations may not provide optimal or even acceptable performance for a given application. One of the first rules to consider is the maximum allowable external towers (base) for an HSL loop in a single system configuration. The other rules are a little more complicated. When switchable towers are involved, other rules apply , such as the maximum of four switchable towers per loop with two HSL CEC nodes and at the same time there can be maximum three switchable towers per HSL segment. The setup guide for HSL attached towers, SA41-5149-xx contains the necessary information regarding HSL cabling rules. Note: Refer to the Appendix to this presentation for HSL adapter specifications.

  54. 54. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Notes: Switched Fabric and 2 Gbps Fibre Channel support Version 5 Release 2 code now includes support for multiple targets from a single Fibre Channel (FC) tape or Fibre Channel (FC) disk adapter. Previously at Version 5 Release 1 only a single target was supported from an single initiator (FC adapter). The existing adapters, feature #2765 for tape and feature #2766 for DASD are fully enabled for 2Gbps. No additional hardware is required, simply loading the V5R2 code is sufficient to enable 2Gbps support. The adapters are auto-sensing and will run at either 1Gbps or 2Gbps. To gain full benefit of this change all elements in the SAN infrastructure need to be enabled for 2Gbps. The 3583 tape library and the recently announced IBM TotalStorage Enterprise Storage Server (ESS, code named "Shark") Model 800 and 800 Turbo options support 2-Gigabit-per-second Fibre/FICON data transfer rates. Announcements are expected later in the year for the 3584 and 3590 tape configurations. Achieving any of the possible maximum throughput rates, of course, is dependent on the number of active devices (exchanging data) using the same iSeries #2765/#2766 HSL adapter, the actual switched fabric network configuration, and the iSeries CPU processor capacity (CPW) available to the active application. When able to drive attached devices at their maximum rated speeds, it is recommended to limit the number of devices attached to the same #2765/#2766 HSL adapter to 3. The 10KM distance supported distance between the switches remains unchanged with V5R2 support for 2Gbps. In addition more than two cascaded switches between the initiator and the target are supported. This allows the iSeries to fully participate in more complex SAN fabrics and enables the user to extend the distance between the initiator and target. Performance issues must be considered when extending the distance between initiator and target. And then there will be always limitations for the simple reason that light in optical fiber can only travel 200 Km per millisecond and in a switch there is an average port to port latency of two milliseconds. With the multi target support in the code of Version 5 Release 2, a single adapter can address multiple targets. This means a substantial reduction of the required FC adapters needed for connecting multiple tape or DASD storage servers to the iSeries Server. The number of LUNs that can be addressed from a unique adapter must be respected. Fact is that there are other considerations such as the bandwidth limitations that may have an impact on performance when they are not taken into account. A simple example: depending on the data structure, 3 or 4 high speed optical attached tape unit datastreams can easily saturated the full FC adapter capability. A #2765 can address up to 16 targets; however, note that a single tape library with a single drive in it consists of two targets and each additional drive in the library is also an additional target. The capability of the #2766 on the other hand allows you to address up to 32 ESS servers. Note, however, since there is a limit of 32 LUNs also, it would mean that if the maximum number of ESS servers is configured, each server can only contain one single LUN which is not a very workable configuration. Users should use common sense when configuring multiple targets on any FC adapter. IBM switches that support 2Gbps are the 2109 Model F16 and the 3534 Model F08. The 3534 F08 is not listed on this chart because testing with iSeries was scheduled to be done after this presentation was created.
  55. 55. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Notes: Switched Fabric and 2 Gbps Fibre Channel support -2 The switches and hubs 2109-S08/S16, 2109-F16, 3534 1RU can be configured according to the required V5R1 iSeries arbitrated loop/QuickLoop protocols. In V5R2 you can still run the point to point, QuickLoop configuration, but the V5R2 switched fabric support is recommended. For use on the iSeries, the QuickLoop feature provides the firmware that enables devices connected to ports of the switch to be handled as private loop devices. QuickLoop creates a unique fibre channel topology that allows host bus adapters (such as the #2765 and #2766) that use fibre channel arbitrated loop (FC-AL) without knowledge of SAN fabric, commonly to communicate with fibre channel arbitrated loop storage devices through IBM 2109 Fibre Channel Switches. QuickLoop allows individual switch ports to be designated as arbitrated loop ports, allowing a private host initiator to communicate with arbitrated loop storage devices as though they were all contained in one logical loop. These QuickLoop switch ports can be located on one switch, or on two switches either directly connected to each other or connected within a SAN fabric. A SAN fabric can contain many independent Quickloops but only one or two switches can be designated to build a single logical arbitrated loop in which private loop initiators can communicate. In V5R2 use the arbitrated loop/QuickLoop configuration only where the customer environment requires its. For new V5R2 configurations using the SAN switched fabric configuration, supported by the 2109 F16 switch is recommended. The 2109 Model F16 provides full duplex operation at 2 gigabits per second port-to-port throughput with auto-sensing capability for connecting to existing 1 gigabit per second host server, storage or switch ports. The F16 is a non-blocking architecture providing multiple simultaneous connections, each capable of up to 2 gigabits per second, with a maximum latency of 2 microseconds. The Model F16 supports cascading and the capability to connect to existing 2109 switches. This switch has support for the new Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) media with options for either short-wave optical connections for distances up to 300 meters, or long-wave optical connections for distances up to 10 kilometers.
  56. 56. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Notes: Switched Fabric and 2 Gbps Fibre Channel support -3 Update on ESS Copy Services AS/400 models via the #6501 controller or the iSeries #2766 PCI Fibre Channel DASD Controller support attachment of Enterprise Storage Server models as discussed. There are two well-known ESS disk "copy/backup" procedures that are formally supported for iSeries attached ESS disks. These are listed below. This support is under Storage Division announcements and support documentation. FlashCopy: FlashCopy provides an option for minimizing the downtime needed for data backup in an ESS environment. Providing an instantaneous or "point-in-time" copy capability, FlashCopy enables disk mirroring within a single ESS unit. iSeries support became available 4Q 2001. Peer to Peer Remote Copy: PPRC provides an ESS-based methodology to do disk mirroring to a second, remote site. This strategy can be used for iSeries disk level disaster tolerance in an ESS environment. There are considerations when using these two "copy methods" in any environment. The most complete description of this support for iSeries is included in an ITSO "redpaper" - An Update of ESS (Shark) Features Supported by the IBM eServer iSeries Server, REDP0199, dated April 2002 and redbook IBM eServer iSeries in a Storage Architecture Network: A Guide to Implementing FC Disk and Tape with iSeries Server, SG24-6220.

  63. 63. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Flexible capacity management without interrupting business 33% of i840 customers exploited Capacity Upgrade on Demand in 2001 Capacity Upgrade on Demand solutions for i830*, i840* and i890 Dynamic processor activation of standby capacity No system or application restart required IBM server iSeries Capacity Advantage *Available with V5R1 and V5R2
  64. 64. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Capacity Upgrade on Demand (CUoD) is a key data center technology that allows customers to immediately add extra processing power for new workloads or spikes in business processing demands. CUoD options were first introduced with OS/400 V5R1 on the i840, and already over 33% of i840 customers are exploiting the capability. CUoD provides customers the ability to gain immediate access to extra processing power, right when they need it to handle unexpected performance demands or the additional granularity to increase their overall CPU processing power in stages. For example, a 4-way customer can add one processor at a time, as needed, to grow to a 5-way or a 6-way and so on. Customers are able to dynamically activate additional processor capacity - either by activating one processor at a time, or all of the standby processors available to them. A 14-day trial period is allowed to activate any standby processors, thus providing sufficient time to obtain activation keys for the additional processors. This trial period is restored after each permanent activation of standby processors. With this announcement CUoD options will now be standard on selected i830 4-way models, i840 and i890 models. The i830, i840 and i890 CUoD options will each have 4, 6 and 8 standby processors respectively, shipped with the system awaiting activation. OS/400 V5R1 is a minimum requirement for i830 and i840 CUoD options. All of the i890 processor features require OS/400 V5R2. You can have some of the stand-buy processors already enabled when shipped from the factory.

  66. 66. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries iSeries Navigator, the new V5R2 name for iSeries Operations Navigator of previous releases, provides extensive graphical user interfaces for managing and administering an iSeries server from a Windows desktop. iSeries Navigator's simple approach to managing complex operations tasks across multiple servers and operating systems helps customers reduce their cost of operations. It utilizes extensive self-guided graphical wizards to simplify management and configuration of a variety of tasks including security, logical partitioning, TCP/IP services, performance monitoring, applications, and more. For example, you can collect and manage inventory of hardware configuration information, software and fixes, system values and user and group profiles. New with V5R2, inventory support also collects service attributes, contact information, and network attributes. This V5R2 information in included in the inventory information transmitted to IBM when you use the IBM Electronic Service Agent for iSeries function, already available with V5R1. Service Agent electronically sends this system information to IBM to be used as input to problem analysis and problem prevention functions. For more Service Agent information see website http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/as400_sd/sdsadoc.html V5R2 takes another significant step towards reducing the requirement to access a 5250 terminal for day-to-day operational tasks, including the need to access Dedicated Service Tools (DST) and System Server Tools (SST) interfaces to assist with managing of disk storage and logical partitioning. Some of the highlights for V5R2 include the new B2B transaction for monitor B2B transactions generated by applications such as Connect for iSeries or an e-marketplace. File monitors are designed to monitor updates to the file size, or a specific character string for byte stream files. As with the already available System, Job, and Message monitors, these new monitors provide the capability to run commands automatically when certain thresholds are triggered. Actually, B2B monitors are supported in V5R1 Operations Navigator with the February 2000 service pack SI02795. For Run SQL Scripts you get the new SQL Assist support that provides advanced prompting for building you SQL statement, including table and columns within a table selection. This is similar to but more advanced than the 5250 STRSQL prompt support. V5R1 introduced the Database Navigator support to graphically represent the relationships between database objects (table and views, tables and indexes, and more). In V5R2 there is new support to include Triggers and easier navigation in showing only the objects you want to see on the window. Selecting a new index to create under the Visual Explain functions is easier to do than in V5R1. Notes: OS/400 V5R2 iSeries Navigator
  67. 67. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries The Network component TCP/IP Configuration folder enables you configure and manage IP networks using IP version 4 (IPv4) capabilities as in previous releases as well as supporting, with V5R2, the newer IPv6 capabilities. Since most networks remain based on IPv4, this support enables the same iSeries server to connect to these networks as well as any network using IPv6. Current technology generally requires that IPv4 network routes be separate from IPv6 routes. iSeries Navigator supports defining an Independent Auxiliary Storage Pool (IASP) to contain "library type" objects (database tables, programs and so forth with V5R2. You can continue to use a switchable IASP for system availability as delivered with V5R1 but with the enhanced support for many key QSYS.LIB objects. V5R2 switched disk cluster management adds the capability to switch among 4 nodes. Starting with V5R2 you can also use a "non-switchable IASP" to contain "name space." a QSYS.LIB "database", or in SQL terminology, a database schema. With this support you can load each IASP with its own database schema to achieve multiple databases on a single system. Multiple databases on a single system offers another tool to assist you with a "server consolidation" environment where a single instance of an application can access different databases with minimal or no applications changes by keeping the same object names in each database - IASP (not the system ASP). Note that in the example figure shown. Rchase5c is the normal (local) database, which includes all system APS libraries. Each of the other two databases are defined in an Independent Auxiliary Storage Pool. To see these databases, they must have been explicitly been "made available" (varied on). More details on database-oriented enhancements for V5R2 are discussed later in this presentation. Tasks that would normally take several commands, and an understanding of each and every parameter have been simplified further with more self-configuring graphical wizards. Examples include creating and managing Linux logical partitioning and enabling Enterprise Identify Mapping. Notes: OS/400 V5R2 iSeries Navigator -2
  68. 68. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Applications such as Backup Recovery and Media Services for iSeries (BRMS/400) contain extensive self-guided wizards to assist with the set up and management of backup and media management policies. Many BRMS functions could be included as a plug in with V5R1. Many more BRMS functions are included as an iSeries Navigator plug-in with V5R2. iSeries Navigator with BRMS as a plug-in integration enhancements in V5R2, include: Save System New delay function for restricted save in System Policy Function of iSeries Navigator only Native save/restore Movement Move Policy Wizard Perform Movement Verify Movement Lotus Server Point in Time Recovery Available through iSeries Navigator only Backup Policy Tape Library Support Subsystem and Job Queues added Parallel, TSM servers, Save files, Save-While-Active (SWA), and Independent ASPs added List Management Create and update of backup lists Notes: OS/400 V5R2 iSeries Navigator -3
  69. 69. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Notes: OS/400 V5R2 iSeries Navigator -4 Some additional V5R2 iSeries Navigator enhancements, not shown on the foils include: Work Management: Core work management function support is now provided in iSeries Navigator. While not all work management functions are supported V5R2 provides the support needed for a typical system operator to control and manage the work on the system. In V5R2 you now have sub folders for Active Jobs, Subsystems, Server Jobs, Job Queues, Memory Pools, and Output Queues. For output queues you can see the files, manage the files on the queue including hold and release, and see writer information for any write- output queue assignment. You can drag files from one output queue to another. The context menu for the Work Management folder now has a System Status function, similar to the 5250 Work with System Status (WRKSYSSTS) command capabilities already available. You can also see threads for a specific job. Quality of Service (QoS) adds LDAP server support: QoS allows you to request network priority and bandwidth for TCP/IP applications. Packet priority is important to you if you send applications that need predictable and reliable results, such as multimedia. You can use the New Quality of Service Configuration wizard to begin policy configuration. This wizard asks you to define some startup instructions for the different QoS parameters. The new QoS and LDAP integration may require use of a wizard to migrate QoS defined prior to V5R2. Packet Rules and VPN can be viewed, edited and disable with a text editor: A virtual private network (VPN) allows your company to securely extend its private intranet over the existing framework of a public network, such as the Internet. The New Connection wizard helps you to easily create a virtual private network (VPN) for your organization. Answer the questions on each of the dialogs, and the wizard will create a VPN based on your specifications. You can edit packet rules file with a text editor and have the ability to disable filter rules and to view rules from different servers at the same time.
  70. 70. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Notes: OS/400 V5R2 iSeries Navigator -5 Software Management:: The support for fixes inventory has been enhanced. You can select and deselect individual missing fixes and can choose to do a compare and update or only an update with the Compare and Update wizard. This enhancement allows you to update the target system directly from the model system without viewing the compare results. You can specify whether to collect fixes only when changes have occurred to the fixes data or to collect fixes even when no changes have occurred since the last collection. Windows Administration: There is additional install and uninstall assistance for Windows OS fixes. A Windows Cluster Server can be managed as other Windows servers. Windows Cluster configured and fully managed from the Windows OS. Network Server Storage objects and Network Storage Server Description objects support parameters necessary for Windows Clustering. Full configuration and management is performed by the Windows Cluster management support. Starting with V5R2 you can also run a windows command on one of the managed Windows servers.
  71. 71. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Schedule V5R2 provides additional LPAR management with iSeries Navigator Sophisticated, Windows-based graphical management tool Multi-partition (up to 32) management Up to 10 Linux partitions per processor: Maximum of four OS/400 partitions per processor. The remainder can be Linux partitions. Reduce costs via mixed workload consolidation and IT resource optimization 44% of i840 customers exploiting LPAR Sub-capacity pricing on n-way servers WebSphereTM Commerce Suite WebSphereTM Application Server Mainframe Class Logical Partitioning
  72. 72. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Notes: Mainframe Class Logical Partitioning OS/400 V5R1 was a breakthrough release for iSeries logical partitioning (LPAR) with the introduction of dynamic movement of processor and other I/O resources, plus the ability to create partitions of less than one processor unit. Since the introduction of LPAR, over 44% of i840 customers have exploited this mainframe-class technology and since V5R1 partitioning usage has soared on i820 uni-processor servers. The exceptional granularity of being able to move 100th of a processing unit between partitions is another example of how the iSeries continues to exploit the concept of resource virtualization - for memory, disk storage, or processors. OS/400 V5R2 extends dynamic partitioning to Linux with the ability to move processing units between OS/400 and Linux partitions or between multiple Linux partitions. It also includes support to create and manage Linux partitions through iSeries Navigator. V5R2 now supports up to 4 OS/400 partitions per processor with a total of up to 10 partitions per processor. That is, a single processors can support up to 10 Linux partitions. You can use combinations of OS/400 and Linux partitions per processors. 10 times the number of processors, minus the number of OS/400 partitions, equal the number of Linux partitions allowed. Maximum of 32 partitions on a system, with up to 31 Linux partitions. OS/400 V5R2 also allows customers better manage their partition configuration data with new support to save partition configuration data into an HTML file for storage with other business continuity information. A key enhancement to the flexibility of LPAR is the new sub-capacity pricing for WebSphere Commerce Suite, and WebSphere Application Server. Previously, WebSphere Application Server was priced per processor, so that on a 32-way machine, you would pay 32 times the charge for a uni-processor. Now, with sub-capacity pricing, you just pay for the number of processors that you are using in partitions running WebSphere (rounded up to the next full processor where you are using partial processor partitioning). For example, if a 4-way i820 has WebSphere Advanced Application Server running in two partitions sized at 0.9 processor units and 0.8 processing units respectively, the total number of processing units allocated will be 1.7. Customers would require a license for 2 processors and will have the flexibility of moving resources between two WebSphere partitions as long as it does not exceed a total of 2 full processors. This more flexible approach to pricing clearly benefits customers who want to deploy WebSphere workloads on a large consolidated iSeries system where only fewer number of processors are required to meet their web transaction serving requirements. A future release of WebSphere Application Server (after version 4) will monitor number of processors usage compared to license agreement and issue message.

  74. 74. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Notes: Server Consolidation with Linux Earlier in this presentation we listed the expanded list of I/O devices added to direct I/O support for a Linux partition.. This foils lists other V5R2 enhancements for Linux. Our award-winning Linux implementation is enhanced to support dynamic allocation of virtual processor units between OS/400 and Linux partitions. This allows customers to get started with a small Linux partition, then dynamically add the capacity when needed, without restarting the Linux server or applications. With OS/400 V5R1, iSeries Linux partitions already have exceptional support for accessing virtual disks in OS/400 partitions, or accessing their own directly attached I/O devices. OS/400 V5R2 also provides support for shared read-only virtual disks, so that multiple Linux partitions can share access to the same application or data, without having multiple copies on separate disks. In addition, Linux distributions for iSeries have been enhanced with additional direct I/O support for fibre channel and multiport serial device drivers. A range of new options are provided for Linux application developers, including Linux library support for 64-bit Linux applications. Building on the JDBC connectivity that already provides Linux applications access to iSeries data and applications, ODBC connectivity is now supported to IBM DB2 UDB for iSeries. Linux SAMBA file system access is now available to Integrated File System and output queues via iSeries Windows Network Neighborhood (iSeries NetServer). iSeries Linux implementations also now support IBM Java 1.3.1. Additionally, to promote the growth of business applications on Linux partitions, IBM has issued a statement of direction to support WebSphere Application Server and IBM DB2 UDB on PowerPC Linux implementations. Providing these key middleware products will both provide a base for robust business solutions on Linux and allow applications on Linux and OS/400 to better interoperate. Ultra-high speed connectivity across iSeries internal virtual ethernet LAN already provides the connectivity fabric required for application connectivity. In another example of how Linux ISVs are moving to support iSeries, Symantec Corporation recently announced their plans to deliver an enterprise-level, full application inspection proxy firewall for the iSeries' Linux offerings in late 2002. This will allow customers to run a secure firewall alongside their OS/400 and WebSphere applications.

  84. 84. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Notes: Enterprise IT Management Made Simple There are clear challenges associated with managing multiple hardware and software infrastructures in today's complex e-business environment leave many customers striving to achieve cost efficiencies. In doing so, they also want better application integration and more common application and management tools to leverage their investment in skills and support personnel across the organization. Today, iSeries provides arguably one of the industry's most flexible server platform, with options to consolidate multiple applications and operating system environments, from OS/400, Linux and Windows operating systems, to WebSphere Application Server, Domino and UNIX applications, through OS/400 Portable Application Solution Environment (OS/400 PASE). OS/400 PASE is enhanced with OS/400 V5R2 natively to support the AIX 5L V5.1 application environment, with support for both 32 and 64-bit applications. OS/400 PASE now provides both a runtime and an application development environment for compiling applications. IBM VisualAge C++ Professional for AIX V6 (5765-F56) and IBM C for AIX V6 (5765-F57) compilers can be installed and used in OS/400 PASE. This "virtually" eliminates the need to compile OS/400 PASE applications on a separate AIX system . Programs in OS/400 PASE can now launch the iSeries integrated Java Virtual Machine (JVM). Also, the iSeries integrated JVM supports native methods implemented as procedures in an OS/400 PASE executable. It's easier to port AIX applications that use a combination of Java and C/C++ code to OS/400 PASE. Additionally, OS/400 PASE (OS/400 option 33) is now packaged as a no additional charge feature of OS/400, enabling use of OS/400 PASE by operating system functions, ISV applications or other IBM software such as the new Tivoli Storage Manager. OS/400 PASE also includes Linux library support based on AIX 5L. With the Statement of Direction* to support AIX in a logical partition in the future, the iSeries continues to open further consolidation opportunities for customers who want to deploy UNIX solutions in a single infrastructure server alongside OS/400 and iSeries other application environments. Customers will also benefit from IBM's ongoing autonomic computing initiative designed to common, self-managed technologies across IBM ^ across products. *Statement of Direction: This presentation contains IBM plans and directions. Such plans are subject to change without notice.

  86. 86. 8 2002 IBM Corporation ibm.com/eserver/iseries Notes: BMC Patrol for iSeries - Predict With V5R1 and previous releases, Performance Tools for iSeries, 5722-PT1, included display and printed reports of collected performance data, management of that data as database files, plus the BEST/1 capacity planning tool. BEST/1 is not supported in V5R2. BMC Patrol for iSeries - Predict is an alternative tool for doing capacity planning for iSeries that becomes available during the last half of 2002. The "create model" component runs on iSeries under OS/400 V5R1 or V5R2. Patrol for iSeries - Predict is a separately priced product produced and support by BMC Software, Inc. Patrol for iSeries - Predict functions and user interface are based upon corresponding Predict for UNIX and NT operating systems products from BMC Software, Inc.. Collection Services used for collecting performance data, used by PM/400 and Performance Tools for iSeries, is part of OS/400, and enabled through iSeries Navigator. Customers will continue to use the existing Performance Tools for iSeries licensed program product (5722-PT1) to analyze or print performance reports. IBM's web based tool, Workload Estimator, or BEST/1 running on V5R1 can be used for new workloads such as Domino or WebSphere or to evaluate upgrades on i270, i820, i830, and the i840 servers. Workload Estimator is has been updated with 890 support. It includes recommendations for incremental processor capacity enabling customers to take advantage of the Capacity Upgrade on Demand options on iSeries. In screen captures on the right, you can see: In the upper window, an example of the PC workstation component's navigation tree structure. Looking closely you can see: Components (folders) on a Predict model created on the iSeries that is worked with on the PC workstation. You can see the "default workloads" - CLIENTAC4 and INTERACTIV (5250 workstation jobs), NONINTER and QDEFAULT that correspond to equivalent BEST/1 default workloads. When using default workloads you specify to BEST/1 or Patrol - Predict, to automatically assign the jobs that have Client Access Express (iSeries Access in V5R2) attributes and jobs with interactive 5250 attributes to the CLIENTAC4 and INTERACTIV workloads. Other user non-5250 job work is automatically assigned to NONINTER. This would include HTTP server, Domino server, Management Central, and "traditional batch jobs" work. QDEFAULT contains other OS/400 work, such OS/400 Work Management subsystem jobs and microcode tasks work that cannot be assigned to any of the other default workloads.
