  15. 15. Optional add-on to regular RHEL Subscription, that provides independent life cycles for the individual Service Packs during Production I phase.Selective backports of fixes into the respective Service PackProvides Critical Impact security errata.Does not provide incremental features or hardware enablement 15
  16. 16. Technical highlightsRHEL 6.4 and RHEL 5.9for System zThis information may change until GA 16
  17. 17. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4Target beta: Dec 4, 2012Target GA: Feb 7, 2013 17
  18. 18. RHEL 6.4 Features: SecuritySupport of new crypto hardwareNew zcrypt module supports IBM CryptoExpress 4 cards 18
  19. 19. RHEL 6.4 Features: SecurityLibICA - Crypto CP ACFThe libica library provides an interface to cryptographic hardware.This feature adds new algorithms that support:Message Security Assist (CP ACF) extension 4, on top of libica 2.1For block cipher DES and 3DES, the new feature will support the following modes ofoperation: - Cipher Block Chaining with Ciphertext Stealing (CBC-CS)For block cipher AES, this feature will support the following modes of operation: - Cipher Block Chaining with Ciphertext Stealing (CBC-CS) - Counter with Cipher Block Chaining Message Authentication Code (CCM) - Galois/Counter (GCM)Customers require acceleration of complex cryptographic algorithms. If thesealgorithms were done in software it would diminish the value of deploying onSystem z, for both cost and performance reasons. 19
  20. 20. RHEL 6.4 Features: PerformanceOptimized compression library zlib for Linux on System zOptimize the existing compression library zlib for System z by using dedicatedSSE instructions and optimized compile options. The compression library zlib isused by Java (decompression of class files), Cognos (PDF generation), TSM(backup) and for Linux installations (binaries compressed in RPMs)This feature significantly improves performance for applications using thecompression library zlib. The expected target is about 10 % improvement, thatwill improve System z price/performance for all applications that make use ofthe compression library. 20
  21. 21. RHEL 6.4 Features: PerformanceKernel support to improve Java performance for Linux on System zProvide kernel patches with support for new hardware that will improve Javaperformance for Linux on System zImproving Java performance increases Linux on System z competitiveness viaprice/capacity ratio 21
  22. 22. RHEL 6.4 Features: ToolsUpdate to Valgrind 3.8.0Latest System z functionality from upstreamValgrind has proven to be a valuable tool debugging user-spacememory management problems.Besides the capabilities to debug memory problems other plugins (cachegrind)enable us to analyze the cache access patterns of applications which turned outto be a key issue in order to get the best performance on z10 machines. 22
  23. 23. RHEL 6.4 Features: FCPImplement data routing for FCP Enable FCP to pass data directly from memory to SAN (data routing) when memory on the adapter card is blocked by large and slow I/O requests.Improved performance by increasing the I/O rate and throughput for shortand fast I/O requests when memory on the adapter is blocked by large andslow I/O requests will satisfy customer expectations regarding performance 23
  24. 24. RHEL 6.4 Features: FCPEnd-to-end data consistency checking The T10 Technical Committee introduced an enhancement to the SCSI standard (SPC-4, SBC-3) to protect against errors in user data blocks. This introduces the zfcp-specific part in the Linux on System z I/O stack for E2E data consistency checking.This RAS item provides improved service and control of data flow betweenadapter and storage device by introducing the zFCP specific part of theenhanced SCSI standard for E2E data consistency checking 24
  25. 25. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.9Beta released Sept 21, 2012Target GA: Dec 11, 2012Mostly bug fix release 25
  26. 26. RHEL 5.9 Features: PerformanceEnable HyperPAV for parallel I/O to ECKD DASDLicensed feature in z/VMThis item is to implement the Hyper-Parallel-Access-Volume support for Linuxon System z. This is a very flexible concept to massively improve deviceperformance by using a set of sub channels as an ALIAS-poolCustomers will observe increased and sustained I/O performance improvementsexploiting parallel Access Volume (PAV) support for disk storage access.Supporting HyperPAV will lead to significantly reduced configuration efforts asopposed to static PAV setups with the system dynamically self optimizing its I/Oconfiguration 26
  27. 27. RHEL 5.9 Features: PerformanceKernel VDSO supportAdd vdso support to speed up gettimeofday, clock_getres and clock_gettime.Some user space application, for example the Java virtual machine, tend to callgettimeofday very often. By use of a vdso this operation can be accelerated byan factor of 4 thereby increasing the performance of the user space application. 27
  28. 28. RHN Satellite Overview 28
  29. 29. Manage the lifecycle of all Red Hat systems from x86 toMainframe from a centralized console.Simplify updates, upgrades, change of configuration files, securityalerts, and more 29
