Systems
Important note before you begin
Systems may be configured with more than 16 CPUs per partition, only when used with Tru64 UNIX V5.1 or OpenVMS V7.2-1H1 with Update #5. System
components, such as master PCI drawers and numbers of PCI options supported must be consistent with this requirement.
Step 1 - Assess Application Requirements
Selection of system components must be made in the context of total application requirements. Although the configuration of system components
must be done in steps (for example, base packages, CPUs, memories, etc.), these steps cannot be done in isolation.
The order in which requirements are assessed is also important, since one requirement may impact others. Before proceeding, it would be useful to
assess the total application requirements in the following order:
What level of availability is required?
If no single points of failure are allowed, then the solution should be configured as a multi-system cluster.
If access to specific devices must be assured, consider redundant adapters - RAID, N+1 power, redundant PCI drawers, and redundant consoles.
If software redundancy is required, consider clusters and/or hardware partitioning. The choice of hardware partitioning will generate a need for
multiple master PCI drawers, multiple consoles, and I/O adapters.
If the "CPU On-Line Add and Remove" feature is required, refer to document EK-GSHPG-RM for configuration and operational requirements.
What level of hardware partitioning is required for optimal system management?
What overall capacities are required in terms of processor performance, memory capacity, and disk storage?
How should the system be configured to optimize performance?
In most cases, optimum performance is achieved if the system resources (CPUs, memory, and I/O adapters) are balanced across the quad building
blocks in the system.
Memory should be configured according to application guidelines listed in Step 4.
What are the near-term system expansion needs?
How will system cabinets be physically arranged? This will determine if expansion cabinets are required and what cable lengths are required.
NOTE: Most configuration steps require that these data be considered in whole or in part. Be sure to execute each step in the context of the total application
requirements.
System Ordering Requirements:
Certain system components or services are either required for normal operation or are recommended for best system performance and/or operation. This
document uses the following definitions to specify these options:
purchase: The system cannot function without this option or service - the option or service must be ordered with the system.
Mandatory purchase
Required to function:
function This option or service is needed to support a working system - the option or service must be ordered with the system or be
available onsite.
Recommended:

Step 4 - Select Memory Options
Memory options are engineered specifically for use with this series and include additional required components that are integral to the system
architecture.
Memory options consist of a series of base modules that contain one memory array. A second array (called
"upgrades" in the table) may be added to a base module in the factory or in the field.
0.5-GB GS80/160/320 base memory module

Memory Configuration Guidelines
Memory options should be selected in the context of the application's sensitivity to memory bandwidth and memory capacity, and the number of hardware
partitions. This will determine the number of memory base modules and upgrades needed. The total capacity required will determine the size of the arrays to
be chosen.
The configuration of memory may influence the performance of applications, and there are numerous ways to configure the choices of memory base modules
and upgrade DIMMs. The following general guidelines can lead to several configuration choices. Application-specific guidelines will help narrow down the
choices.
Configuring for capacity: The highest capacity is achieved when the 3X-MS8AA-DB/DU combination is used.
Configuring for performance: Interleaved operations reduce the average latency and increase the memory throughput over non-interleaved
operations. Each memory base module is capable of 4-way interleaving with one array (no upgrades added) or 8-way interleaving with two arrays
(base module plus one upgrade). A QBB configured with eight arrays (four base modules plus four array upgrades) provides 32-way interleaving and
has the maximum potential memory bandwidth. Refer to "Memory Applications Examples" below to determine which applications gain the most
benefit from this bandwidth.
Memory modules should be configured in powers of 2: that is, 0, 1, 2, or 4 base modules in a QBB. Upgrades should also be installed in powers of
2: 0, 1, 2, or 4 base modules in a QBB.
Although mixed-capacity memory modules may be configured, the highest bandwidth is achieved when a QBB is populated with eight identical
arrays: four base modules and four upgrades. The next-highest bandwidth would be four base modules (four arrays).
If it is not possible to match the capacities of all the arrays, the next best choice is to configure pairs of identical base modules, or base
module/upgrade combinations. For example, a configuration of two 2-GB base modules (3X-MS8AA-CB), each with a 1-GB upgrade (3X-MS8AABU), is a better choice than a configuration of three 2-GB modules (3X-MS8AA-CB).

Memory Application Examples
Configuring memory is a compromise between cost, total memory capacity, and memory bandwidth requirements. The behavior of the application must be
used to define the most-desired configuration. Some applications are sensitive to memory capacity, some are sensitive to memory bandwidth, some are
sensitive to neither. If actual application measurements are not available, the following may be used as guidelines:
Large memory (VLM) applications, in which large amounts of memory can substantially reduce I/O, may be optimized for total memory capacity and
future capacity growth. In VLM applications, the right balance might be one memory base module, with upgrade, for every two CPUs. This would
result in one memory array per CPU.
Typical commercial applications, such as transaction processing (OLTP) and multi-user timesharing, usually operate efficiently from cache and may
not be materially affected by memory bandwidth. Memory configuration is a balance between memory bandwidth and future capacity growth. It is
advisable to match the number of arrays to the number of CPUs.
Data mining can benefit from additional memory bandwidth. It is best to match the number of memory base modules to the number of CPUs.
The most demanding high-performance technical applications (HPTC) achieve a performance level that is directly proportional to memory
bandwidth. In these cases, configure one memory base module, with upgrade, per CPU. This results in two memory arrays per CPU.
The following table represents how 8 GB could be configured in a 4-CPU QBB in each of the four referenced applications. The numbers under each
application represent how many of each memory option would be ordered.

NOTE: N/R = Not recommended - For these applications, configure either four or eight like-sized memory options rather than one or two.
Step 5 - Evaluate Configuration Requirements to Support Optional Partitioning
Configuration Requirements for Partitions
Configuring partitions requires some attention to detail with respect to minimum requirements for option selection, population, and option placement.
A single AlphaServer GS320 can be divided into logical hardware partitions, each running an instance of Tru64 UNIX or an instance of OpenVMS.
Each partition is allocated its own dedicated "shared-nothing" set of hardware resources: QBB(s), CPU module(s), memory module(s), and I/O.
Multiple-QBB hard partitions within a GS server do not provide complete hardware failure isolation across hard partitions. Single hard partitioned
QBBs within the server do provide hardware failure isolation.
Each hardware partition is viewed as a unique node, from a system point-of-view, with its own instance of Tru64 UNIX or OpenVMS operating system
and application software, independent system console, and error log.
Hardware partitions are defined on QBB boundaries; each partition is an integer multiple of QBBs.
Up to six hardware partitions are supported on GS320 Model 24 systems; up to eight hardware partitions are supported on Model 32 systems
One system management console (3X-DS8BA-xx or 3X-DS8DA-xx) and one console hub (3X-DS8AA-AA) are recommended per system.
Supported option rules apply for maximum configurations of each AlphaServer GS320 system partition. Care must be exercised to ensure that any
planned reconfiguration of hardware partitions will not violate option support rules.
Minimum Hardware Required per AlphaServer GS320 Hardware Partition
Each hardware partition requires a minimum of one QBB, however, multiple QBBs are allowed within a single hardware partition. The first QBB in a
hardware partition must be configured with the minimum hardware listed below. This, and other QBBs in the partition, can be configured with additional
hardware once this minimum requirement is met.

One 3X-MS8AA-BB/CB/DB memory module (1 GB, 2 GB, 4 GB)
One 3X-KFWHA-AA system I/O module and one 3X-DWWPA-AA master PCI drawer. Depending upon configuration, this may require the use of a
3X-H9A20-AD/AE/AF expansion cabinet
AlphaServer GS320 systems are normally configured according to standard module placement rules, and are shipped with one copy of the operating
system installed at the factory (Tru64 UNIX or OpenVMS). However, systems with hardware partitions offer hardware and software configuration
flexibility. Factory integration services (VIS) are recommended to enable custom module configuration and factory installation of multiple copies of
the operating system on hardware partitioned systems.
Optimizing System Resources
The following configuration guidelines can be used to improve performance in systems or in each partition of a hardware-partitioned system.
Balance the resources in the system (or hardware partition) based upon the available backplane space and the proposed option populations:
Sparsely configured systems, those using half or less than half of their available capacity for CPUs, memory, and PCI drawers, should be configured
with the options concentrated in as few QBBs as possible. For example, a GS320 Model 32 with 16 CPUs, 16 memory modules, and four PCI
drawers would usually be configured in the first four QBBs. The first four QBBs would be "active" and the 5th through 8th QBBs would be available
for expansion.
Densely populated systems, those using more than half of their available capacity for CPUs, memory, and PCI drawers, should be configured with the
options spread out across all QBBs.
Configure active QBBs symmetrically, each with CPUs, memory, and PCI drawers.
Configure the I/O adapters so that each active QBB has direct access to the most frequently accessed data.
System Software Required for AlphaServer GS320 Hardware Partition Support
Software Licensing for Hardware Partitions
Base systems include operating system license (Tru64 UNIX or OpenVMS) that licenses hardware partitions up to the physical limit of the base system
package: six hardware partitions for Model 24 systems, eight partitions for Model 32 systems.
User and capacity-based licensing is unaffected by hardware partitions. Examples:
If a product is licensed for 200 concurrent users, these users can be split among the partitions, but cannot exceed 200 total users.
If users have an enterprise capacity license for a product, that license can be loaded into the license databases on each of the hardware partitions.
Licensing Partitioned AlphaServer GS320 Systems for Both OpenVMS and Tru64 UNIX
If the system requires both OpenVMS and Tru64 UNIX operating systems be licensed, one operating system license is included in the base system and
the second is added as a line item. The second operating system license upgrade, which includes the license for only one CPU, would be added to
the order using the following part numbers. Order appropriate media and documentation kits from Step 13.
OpenVMS software upgrade for GS160/GS320
QB-63PAQ-AG
Tru64 UNIX software upgrade for GS160/GS320
QB-595AN-AA
Only those SMP processors intended for use with the second operating system must be similarly licensed. Use the following license-only part numbers
to add an SMP license for any CPUs intended for use with the second operating system:
OpenVMS Alpha SMP license for GS160/GS320
QL-MT1A9-6R
Tru64 UNIX Alpha SMP license for GS160/GS320
QL-MT4A9-6R
The order of licensing is not important, but the following examples are similarly constructed for clarity. The configuration starts with a Tru64 UNIX
base system part number and the addition of OpenVMS licenses.
Example 1: 32-CPU GS320 system in which all processors are licensed for both OpenVMS and Tru64 UNIX:
Base system order would include: DA-320EE-Ax and 31 3X-KN8AB-AD SMP upgrade CPUs
Add one QB-63PAQ-AG OpenVMS software upgrade and 31 QL-MT1A9-6R OpenVMS Alpha SMP licenses
Example 2: 32-CPU GS320 system in which all processors are licensed for Tru64 UNIX and 16 processors are also licensed for OpenVMS:
Base system order would include: DA-320EE-Ax and 31 3X-KN8AB-AD SMP upgrade CPUs
Add one QB-63PAQ-AG OpenVMS software upgrade and 15 QL-MT1A9-6R OpenVMS Alpha SMP licenses
User and capacity-based licenses would be added for the second operating system environment as though it were a standalone system.

Step 6c - External Expansion Cabinets
Additional PCI drawers and storage shelves can be installed in optional 3X-H9A20-AD/AE/AF expansion cabinets. Up to four 3X-H9A20-AD/AE/AF
cabinets are supported.
3X-H9A20-AD/AE/AF I/O expansion cabinet can be configured to hold all disk BA36R StorageWorks shelves or
DS-SL13R-xx Ultra3 StorageWorks shelves or combination of StorageWorks shelves and PCI drawers.
If no PCI drawers are configured, cabinet supports up to eight BA36R or five DS-SL13R-xx StorageWorks shelves.
If one PCI drawer is configured, cabinet supports up to five BA36R or four DS-SL13R-xx StorageWorks shelves.
If two PCI drawers are configured, cabinet supports up to four BA36R or three DS-SL13R-xx StorageWorks shelves.
If three PCI drawers are configured, cabinet supports up to two BA36R or two DS-SL13R-xx StorageWorks shelves.
If four PCI drawers are configured, cabinet supports one BA36R or DS-SL13R-xx StorageWorks shelf.
BA36R and DS-SL13R-xx StorageWorks shelves can be combined in the same expansion cabinet.

If large quantities of disks are required, the use of StorageWorks Storage Array cabinets and components is highly recommended.
Systems installed in the US and Canada may use the 3X-H9A20-AD when 120V input power is required. In all other cases, the 3X-H9A20-AF is
preferred because of the ability to support dual AC input.
3X-H9A20-AD/AE/AF cabinets may be joined to GS320 systems. PCI drawers placed in these cabinets require 7-meter I/O cables.
3X-H9A20-AD/AE/AF cabinets may be placed up to 6 meters from the system cabinet. Multiple expander cabinets may be connected to one another
or placed separately. Each group of free-standing H9A20 cabinets requires an end-panel trim kit (CK-H9A20-AB).
PCI drawers placed in remote cabinets require 10-meter I/O cables.

Step 7 - Storage
Step 7a - Storage Adapters and Controllers
Tru64 UNIX supports a maximum of 64 total SCSI controllers per operating system instance (hardware partition). OpenVMS supports a maximum of
26 total SCSI controllers per operating system instance. Total SCSI controllers (all types) in the system must be within these limits regardless of the
maximum per system I/O adapter limitations. Refer to the "Supported Options List" for specific configuration rules.
Each master PCI drawer contains embedded SCSI controllers (a FIS disk and a CD), which is included in the overall count of SCSI controllers
configured in the system (or partition). Tru64 UNIX counts FIS disk and CD-ROM as an embedded SCSI device. OpenVMS counts the FIS disk only as
an embedded SCSI device. Therefore, one (OpenVMS) or two (Tru64 UNIX) SCSI controllers per master PCI drawer must be included in the total count
of SCSI devices in the system.
Calculating the total number of SCSI controllers in the system (or partition) is done by adding all the devices in the system that the operating system
categorizes as a SCSI device. Tru64 UNIX includes the following devices in this count: KZPBA-CA, KZPBA-CB, 3X-KZPBA-CC, 3X-KZPCA-AA, DSKZPCC-CE, DS-KGPSA-CA., DS-KGPSA-DA Fibre Channel, and two embedded master PCI components per master PCI drawer. OpenVMS includes
the following devices in this count: KZPBA-CA, KZPBA-CB, 3X-KZPBA-CC, 3X-KZPCA-AA, 3X-KZPEA-DB, DS-KZPCC-AC, and one embedded
master PCI component per master PCI drawer.
For cluster configurations, use Y cable (BN39A-0G).
Manufacturing may substitute correct cable lengths depending on configuration.
NOTE: "Per System" quantities apply to systems or to each hardware partition. The SCSI adapters included in the base system or in 3x-DWWPA-AA master
PCI drawers must be included in this calculation.

HVD to LVD Converters
HVD (High Voltage Differential) adapters and LVD (Low Voltage Differential) devices are normally
incompatible due to their different signaling voltage levels. This incompatibility does not allow direct
communication between the different technologies. The HVD to LVD converter allows connectivity
between legacy HVD Host Bus Adapters and today's LVD devices. The converter provides:
Connectivity in direct attach or shared configurations of all currently available LVD devices,
including disks, tapes, libraries, and shelves (4314 or 4354) when used with the KZPBA-CB
and 3X-KZPBA-CC HVD adapters. With the retirement of StorageWorks 1 disks and HVD
shelves (BA36R), converters are desirable where upgrades to LVD HBAs, or upgrades to current
operating system versions are not possible.
Shared and direct attach configurations are interconnected much the same as those previously
configured with homogeneous HVD solutions, except that the HVD output is now passed
through the converter before proceeding to the LVD device. Where required, Y cables (BN21W0B), terminators (H879-AA), cables (BN38C-10, BN37A-20), one or two HVD/LVD converters
(one-port, two-port), Memory Channel adapters (CCMAB), one Memory Channel cable
(BN39B-10), are used in conjunction with the LVD device of choice.

Step 9 - MEMORY CHANNEL
Up to two PCI System Area Network controllers supported on a G320 partition
Two-node clusters can be configured by ordering a CCMAB-BA for each node and one BN39B-04 or BN39B-10 cable; cable connects directly to
CCMAB-BA in each node.
For a two-node cluster that will not be rebooted when adding additional members, order one CCMAB-BA adapter and one BN39B-04 or BN39B-10
cable for each node, and one CCMHB-AA hub for the cluster.
For three or four node clusters, order one CCMAB-BA adapter and one BN39B-04 or BN39B-10 cable for each node and one CCMHB-AA hub for
the cluster
CCMHB-AA includes four CCMLB-AA line cards and supports up to four nodes; expansion up to eight system nodes can be achieved by adding up
to four additional CCMLB-AA line cards
If two or more CCMAB-BA controllers are configured in each node (dual rail), a second CCMHB-AA hub is required
If using a MEMORY CHANNEL adapter module (54-24962-01) prior to revision D02, up to two MEMORY CHANNEL adapters can be placed on a
PCI bus, however, no additional PCI devices can be placed on the same PCI bus, and the remaining slots must be left empty
Tru64 UNIX Systems
(V5.1 and later)

Interconnect
Each system in the cluster requires a TruCluster Server software license

OpenVMS Systems in

Requires OpenVMS V7.2-1H1 or later and OpenVMS Cluster license (QL-MUZAQ-AA)
MEMORY CHANNEL Fiber
Optic Cable Option
In cases where nodes must be separated by a longer distance than standard copper cables
allow, the CCMFB option converts the output of the standard CCMAB controller or CCMLB
line card to single-mode fiber optic cable. The fiber optic connection may be up to 2,000
meters long between two CCMAB controllers connected in virtual hub mode, or 3,000 meters
between a CCMAB controller and a CCMHB hub. (The connection from the CCMHB hub to a
second system may also be 3,000 meters). The CCMFB option requires a second PCI slot in the
system from which it draws power only. It is normally connected to the corresponding CCMAB
controller with the short BN39B-01 cable. The CCMFB is also used in the CCMHB hub where
it occupies a slot normally used by the CCMLB line card, limiting expansion to four radial
fiber optic connections.
The CCMHB-BA hub expansion box provides additional slots for up to eight fiber optic
connections. Two standard length, single-mode fiber optic cables are available (BN34R-10
and BN34R-31); however, users normally provide this connection. Customers should reference
the TIA/EIA 568-A Commercial Building Telecommunications Cabling Standard, Section
12.3.4. Fiber optic connectivity is completely transparent to the systems using it and has no
performance impact.
Up to two CCMHB-AA hubs may be mounted in a 3X-H9A20-AD expansion cabinet by
utilizing a 2T-MAVRK-AA rack-mounting kit for each hub. A second MEMORY CHANNEL
Hub (CCMHB-AA or CCMHM-BA) mounted in an expansion cabinet reduces the amount of
StorageWorks shelves by one.

Step 10 - System Console Support
System Management
Console
AlphaServer GS320 systems require the ability to log console messages, provide remote access for service and
support, and, in some cases, manage multiple hardware partitions. The system management console is mandatory if
the customer has no other means to provide these capabilities.
PC-based system management console is required for system power-up, diagnostics, console partitioning, and
console display and logging for use with AlphaServer GS80/160/320 systems.
Includes network interface cards, universal modem, console software, 101-key keyboard, mouse, and console
documentation kit
A monitor is required for use with the system management console. Choose monitor listed in Step 12.
Systems configured with redundant consoles or employing hardware partitioning require the ability to connect
multiple consoles. A console hub is mandatory if the customer has no other means to provide these capabilities.
A console printer is recommended, but not required.

Hardware/Software Optional Support
Alternately, the GS320 can utilize the ES47, ES80, and GS1280 System Management software. This can significantly
enhance and simplify monitoring and control of the system, especially in mixed environments. The software, which runs on a
separate Intel or Alpha system, consists of two major components:
1. Alpha Management Station (AMS) - for monitoring and control of multiple GS Alpha Systems. AMS offers the
highest level of server management functionality for a single or multi-platform environment. The AMS software
requires the following hardware in order to operate:
Tru64 UNIX platform with 512-MB memory, 4-GB disk space, and two network interface cards running Tru64
UNIX V5.1B or later.
Intel IA-32 platform running Linux, 500-MHz CPU or faster, 256-MB memory, 4-GB disk space, and one
network interface card.
2. Alpha Management Utility (AMU) - for monitoring and control of a single GS320 Alpha System. The AMU is a
GUI based application that provides a sophisticated, yet user-friendly graphics interface. The AMU is a Web-based
utility, which allows a user local and remote access from a browser. The AMU software requires one of the following
hardware platforms in order to operate:
Intel IA-32 platform running Windows 2000 or later, 500-MHz CPU or faster, 256-MB memory, 4GB disk space, and one network interface card.
Intel IA-32 platform running Linux, 500-MHz CPU or faster, 256-GB memory, 4-GB disk space, and
one network interface card.
Tru64 UNIX platform running V5.1B or later, 512-MB memory, 4-GB disk space, and one network
interface card.
OpenVMS platform running V7.3-1 or later, 512-MB memory, 4-GB disk space, and one network
interface card.
Both the AMS and AMU software require Internet Explorer 5.5 or later or Netscape 4.76 or later.

Step 15 - Recommended Online Power Protection/UPS Solutions for AlphaServer GS320
A dual-AC power option provides the capability to connect to two separate synchronized AC feeds: a primary AC feed and a secondary AC feed. The
feeds can be direct from the power utility, or they can be a combination of utility feeds and UPS or generator feeds. The preferred (primary) feed is
chosen and set by the user. In the event of failure of the primary feed, the switch will automatically transfer the load to the secondary feed without
power interruption. The selected AC feed can also be switched manually.
The option cabinet must be positioned adjacent to the system power cabinet and it is bolted to it.
Power requirements for the dual AC power option are identical to the system to which it is connected.
The dual-AC switch option can be factory configured or installed as a field upgrade.
The primary and secondary 3-phase AC sources must be nominally of the same level, frequency and phase rotation. To ensure virtually uninterrupted
transfers between the two AC sources, the two input sources must be synchronized, typically within 5 to 15 electrical degrees. Questions regarding the
dual-AC option can be answered by an environmental specialist at 1-800-354-9000.
The primary and secondary 3-phase AC sources must have a THD of less than 10%.
The dual-AC power option consists of two component types:
One AC switch configured within an H9A20 cabinet (3X-H7512-AC/AD). The cabinet has dedicated mounting space for a second AC switch that is
not included.
A second electronic AC switch (3X-H7512-BA/BB) that mounts within the 3X-H7512-AC/AD cabinet.
AlphaServer GS320 Model 24 and Model 32 systems require both the 3X-H7512-AC/AD and the 3X-H7512-BA/BB
NOTE: 3X-H9A20-AD/AE/AF expansion cabinets include N+1 power on separate power controllers and may be directly connected to two different AC
feeds.

HP Capacity on Demand (CoD) Program
AlphaServer GS320 customers can add additional CPU capacity on demand without waiting to purchase the resource when it is required and without rebooting their system. The HP Capacity on Demand Program, outlined below, is a two-part process.
Part 1
Customer purchases a system with Tru64 UNIX or OpenVMS CoD SMP CPU(s) (3X-KN8CA-AD
or 3X-KN8CA-AE), or customer purchases Tru64 UNIX or OpenVMS CoD SMP CPU(s) for field
installation within an installed AlphaServer GS320 system.
When purchasing the CoD CPU(s), the customer signs a CoD program agreement to purchase
the CPU module(s) within 18 months or upon "first use" of the module(s).
A blank copy of the agreement is available through your local HP representative or call 1-800282-6672 -- Full program terms are outlined in this agreement.
