HP Integrity rx7640 Server
Configuration
The HP Integrity rx7640 Server is a symmetrical multiprocessing (SMP) server supporting up to eight high performance
Intel dual core Itanium processors (90XX series or 91XXN series). Earlier single core "Mad9" processors are supported
with certain limitations. The server supports HP's innovative sx2000 chip set. The rx7640 can be configured as a single
SMP server or divided into two smaller, hardware partitioned (nPars), logical servers.
Cell Boards
A minimum of one and a maximum of two cells can be ordered in an HP Integrity rx7640
Server. Each cell can be purchased with up to four active Intel dual-core Itanium processors
(90X0 series or 91X0N series) or in combination with Instant Capacity processors. The rx7640
can support a mix of 90X0 and 91X0N series processors; however, within a single cell, all
processors must be identical
The HP Integrity rx7640 and HP Integrity rx8640 servers share the same cell board. The
rp7410/rp7420/rx7620 cell boards cannot be carried forward to the rx7640 server.

The Intel dual core Itanium processor consists of two processor cores. You may order
and upgrade a dual core Itanium processor in increments of one core (the second core in
a processor being iCAP).
There must be at least one processor core active (the other core being iCAP) on each
cell board.
On each cell board, processors must be installed in the following sequence 0, 2, 1, 3
HP Integrity rx7620 1.6 GHz 6 MB level 3 cache processors may be carried forward to
rx7640 servers.
Intel single core Itanium processors (now obsoleted) and Intel dual core Itanium
processors can be mixed in the same chassis as long as they are in separate hard
partitions (requires the same chipset, sx1000 or sx2000).
Memory Configuration The memory DIMMs used in the HP Integrity rx7640 Server are sold in pairs and are custom
designed by HP. Each DIMM contains DDR II chips with full ECC protection. DIMM sizes of 2
GB, 4 GB, and 8 GB are supported. Each HP Integrity rx7640 Server cell board supports up to
16 DIMM slots and 16 GB/s of peak memory bandwidth. HP 9000 rp7410/rp7420/rx7620
memory modules cannot be carried forward to the rx7640 server.

Performance Tuning
Guidelines
Memory Latencies
Quad Echelon

16
For best performance, a cell should be configured with a multiple of eight DIMMs or four
pairs (although the server will execute properly with an odd number of pairs). It takes
eight DIMMs to populate both memory buses. Populating only one of the two memory
buses on a cell board will deliver only half the peak memory bandwidth.
Load memory equally across the available cell boards.
There are two types of memory latencies within the HP Integrity rx7640 Server:
1. Memory latency within the cell refers to the case where an application either runs on a
partition that consists of a single cell or uses cell local memory.
2. Memory latency between cells refers to the case where the partition consists of two cells and
cell interleaved memory is used. In this case 50% of the addresses are to memory on the same
cell as the requesting processor, and the other 50% of the addresses are to memory of the
other cell.
The HP Integrity rx7640 Server average memory latency depends on the number of CPUs in
the partition. Assuming that memory accesses are equally distributed across all cell boards and
memory controllers within the partition, the average idle memory latency (load to use) is as
show below:

I/O Architecture
Average Memory Latency

~249 ns
Components within the I/O subsystem are the I/O controllers, internal peripheral bay, and
multifunction Core I/O. The figure below shows the basic block diagram of the I/O subsystem.
The HP Integrity rx7640 Server I/O architecture utilizes industry standard PCI X, and PCIexpress buses in a unique design for maximum performance, scalability, and reliability. To
achieve maximum performance and availability, each PCI/PCI-X slot on the I/O board is
controlled by its own Bus Converter ASIC and is also independently supported by its own half of
the dual hot swap controllers. All PCI slots are designed to be compliant with PCI Rev.2.2, PCIX Rev.2.0a, and PCI-express Gen1 specifications.
The PCI-X 2.0 I/O Backplane implemented an important change to power distribution to the I/O
partitions. The PCI-X Power supply bricks have been redesigned to allow the pair of them to be
N+1 redundant in operation. Both I/O partitions will sustain their operational state even if one of
the PCI bricks has failed. All the PCI voltages will remain within the PCI specification. These
power bricks are not part of the PCI-X I/O board assembly. They plug into the edge of the PCIX I/O Backplane to provide power to the board and they are not backwards compatible with the
previous PCI power bricks. Any PCI brick failures will be reported to the system so the failing
brick could be hot swapped.
Two different IO expansion bays are supported in the rx7640 chassis:
BP1: PCI-X IO BAY:
The PCI-X board is two logically independent I/O circuits (or partitions) on one physical board:
Escalante 0 and its associated eight Gemini ASICs, Core I/O 0 and 8 PCI-X expansion slots
form PCI-X I/O Partition 0. Escalante 1 and its associated eight Gemini ASICs, Core I/O 1 and
8 PCI-X expansion slots form PCI-X I/O Partition 1.
BP2: Combined PCI-X / PCI-e IO BAY:
The PCI-Express board comprises two logically independent I/O circuits (partitions) on one
physical board: Escalante 0 and its associated four Gemini (PCI-X) , four Apollo (PCIe) ASICs,
and their respective PCI/PCI-X/PCIe slots form PCI-Express I/O Partition 0 + Core I/O.
Escalante 1 and its associated four Gemini (PCI-X) , four Apollo (PCIe) ASICs, and their
respective PCI/PCI-X/PCIe slots form PCI-X I/O Partition 1 + Core I/O.
The internal peripheral bay supports up to four low profile disks and one removable media
device (one removable media device can be configured with one DVD+RW or one DAT (or
optionally, two slimline DVD modules). The internal disks are electrically divided into two pairs.
SCSI controller chips located on each core I/O board set supports each pair of internal disks.
This means that you must have both core I/O board sets in order to access both halves of the
peripheral bay.

HP Integrity rx7640 Server
Configuration
PCI Backplane
The HP Integrity rx7640 Server supports both PCI X 2.0 and PCI Express. Two different
backplanes are available. The PCI X 2.0 backplane (AB160A) supports sixteen (16) PCI X
slots. A combination PCI Express/PCI X 2.0 backplane (AD161A) supports eight (8) PCI X slots
and eight (8) PCI Express slots. AD161A is not supported as an upgrade to earlier rx7640
models configured with Intel Itanium Mad9M series processors.
Each backplane contains two master I/O controller chips located on the backplane. Each I/O
controller contains sixteen high performance 12 bit wide links, which connect to sixteen slave
I/O controller chips supporting the PCI X or PCI Express card slots and core I/O. Two links, one
from each master controller is routed through the crossbar backplane and is dedicated to core
I/O. The remaining thirty links are divided among the sixteen I/O card slots. This one card per
link architecture leads to greater I/O performance and higher availability. Each controller chip is
also directly linked to a host cell board. This means that at least two cell boards, located in cell
slots 0 and 1, must be purchased in order to access all sixteen I/O card slots. With one cell
board, access to eight slots is enabled.
Eight of sixteen I/O card slots are supported by dual high performance fat links. Each link is
capable of ~2 GB/s of bandwidth. Six of the sixteen I/O card slots are supported by dual highperformance links. Each link is capable of providing 1060 of bandwidth. This means that half of
HP Integrity rx7640 Server I/O slots are capable of sustained 2.12 GB/s. Aggregate I/O slot
bandwidth is ~23 GB/s. In addition, because each I/O slot has a dedicated bus, any slot can be
"hot plugged" or serviced without affecting other slots. The hot plug operation is very easy, and
can be done with minimal training and effort.

External Server Storage Connectivity
HP has the broadest, most robust server and storage line-up in the industry, providing exactly the right fit for every need.
Refer to the Storage-Server matrix to see a matrix that highlights which storage device, server and operating system is
interoperable.
Integrated
The HP Integrity rx7640 Server chassis supports up to two core I/O board sets. Each board set
Multifunction Core I/O contains two cards (MP/SCSI and LAN/SCSI), which are installed in different locations.
MP/SCSI cards are installed along the right rear vertical edge of the chassis. The LAN/SCSI
cards are installed in the PCI card bay. The first core I/O board set will support up to two cell
boards in the server and all I/O slots. For support of two hard partitions or for support of the
third and fourth integrated disk drive, a second core I/O board set is required in the host
system.
HP Integrity rp7410/rp7420/rx7620 Core I/O cards cannot be carried forward to the HP Integrity
rx7640 server.
Both Core I/O board sets are identical. The "primary" and "secondary" Core I/O LAN/SCSI
board is supported by a 530 MB/s link. In addition, in the "primary" core I/O, a SCSI controller
from both the LAN/SCSI board and MP/SCSI board each support a single internal disk drive.
Each HP Integrity rx7640 Server core I/O board set provides the following features:
Management Processor: The management processor (MP), located on each MP/SCSI
card, is a dedicated processor that simplifies and extends system management, and also
enhances serviceability. The MP minimizes or eliminates the need for the system
administrator to be physically at the system to perform tasks such as diagnostics, system
management, or even hard resets. Here are some of the features enabled by the HP
Integrity rx7640 Server management processor:
System management over the Internet or Intranet (telnet or web)
System console redirection
Console mirroring
System configuration for automatic restart
Viewing history log of system events
Viewing history log of console activity
Setting MP inactivity timeout thresholds

connected to Smart Array).
Two External 1GbE LAN ports.
Access to internal peripheral bay: The HP Integrity rx7640 Server internal peripheral bay
is located at the top front of the system chassis. The peripheral bay holds up to four low
profile hot plug disks and one half height removable media device ( One half height bay
supports two devices in the case of optional slim line DVD's). Each HP Integrity rx7640
Server core I/O board set contains dual channel Ultra320 SCSI controller chips that
support the SCSI devices in the internal peripheral bay. Each core I/O board set supports
two internal disks. It is important to note that separate controllers and SCSI busses
manage the two disks supported by the primary and secondary core I/O set (This is a
change from the previous architecture in sx1000 based servers). If use of more than two
internal disks is needed, the HP Integrity rx7640 Server will require both core I/O sets.
Core I/O Loading Rules
Minimum of one Core I/O board set (primary) must be purchased with each HP Integrity
rx7640 Server
Load the Primary (1) MP/SCSI board into slot 1 and the LAN SCSI board into I/O cabinet
1 (slot 8).
MP/SCSI slot 0 and I/O cabinet 0 corresponds to Cell Board slot 0. MP/SCSI slot 1 and
I/O cabinet 1 corresponds to Cell Board slot 1.
A cell board must be installed in slot 0 to enable use of Core I/O 0. Likewise, a cell board
must be installed in slot 1 to enable use of Core I/O 1.
Access to two internal disk drives and one half height removable media bay is enabled
with the installation of the first Core I/O board set (Primary).
The optional second Core I/O board set (secondary) must be ordered to enable hardware
partitioning
The optional second Core I/O board set (secondary) must be ordered to enable access to
the third/fourth internal disks
The optional second core I/O board set (secondary) must be ordered to enable using the

External Storage
HP has the broadest, most robust server and storage line up in the industry, providing exactly the right fit for every need.
Refer to the Storage-Server matrix to see a matrix that highlights which storage device, server and operating system is
interoperable.
AC/DC Power
DC Power Supplies
The HP Integrity rx7640 Server comes with two power supplies that provided dual grid (2N)
protection. The hot swap design allows for the replacement of a failed power supply without
interrupting server operation. All four power cords must be utilized to fully enable power supply
hot swap. HP Integrity rp7410/rp7420/rx7620 DC power supplies can be carried forward to the
HP Integrity rx7640 server
PCI Power Supplies
PCI power supply is now a redundant N+1 design. One PCI power supply failure will not affect
the I/O bay since the remaining PCI power supply will power both I/O bays (this is an upgrade
from the sx1000 based systems). PCI power supplies are hot swap capable (this is an upgrade
from the sx1000 based systems). HP Integrity rp7410/rp7420/rx7620 PCI Power Supplies
cannot be carried forward to the HP Integrity rx7640 server.
AC Power
The HP Integrity rx7640 Server contains four C20 power receptacle ports located at the bottom
rear bulkhead. A minimum of two power cords must be used to maintain normal operation of the
HP Integrity rx7640 Server. A second set of two cords can be added to improve system
availability by protecting, for example, against power grid failures, accidentally tripped circuit
breakers, or a failed power supply. The HP Integrity rx7640 Server hardware is capable of
receiving AC input from two different AC power sources. The objective is to maintain full
equipment functionality when operating from power source A and power source B or A alone or
B alone. This capability is called "fault tolerant power compliance".
Although many HP Integrity rx7640 Server configurations can be sufficiently powered from a
single 16 /20 amp branch circuit, the optimum configuration is to use one 16 amp (minimum)
branch circuit per power cord. Due to the variety of 16/20 plugs used throughout the world, the
HP Integrity rx7640 Server Ordering Guide offers a choice of plug options.
AC Power Consumption
The HP Integrity rx7640 Server power consumption will vary greatly depending on the hardware
configuration and the input line voltages supplied at customer sites. Because of the disparity of
line voltages throughout the world it's best to represent power consumption in VA (Volt
Amperes). With power consumption being of high concern throughout the world, it's necessary
to specify consumption in a couple of different ways.
Maximum Theoretical Power: or "Maximum Configuration" (Input power at the ac input
expressed as Volt-Amps to take into account Power factor correction.)
The calculated sum of the maximum worst case power consumption for every subsystem in the
DA - 12470 Worldwide QuickSpecs — Version 25 — 5/8/2009
Page 19
QuickSpecs
HP Integrity rx7640 Server
Configuration
server. This number will NEVER be exceeded by a functioning server for any combination of
hardware and software under any conditions.
Marked Electrical Power: (Input power at the ac input expressed as Volt-Amps.)
The server Marked Electrical Power is the rating given on the chassis label and represents the
input power required for facility ac power planning and wiring requirements. This number
represents the expected maximum power consumption for the server based on the power rating
of the bulk power supplies. This number can safely be used to size ac circuits and breakers for
the system under all conditions.
Typical Maximum Power: or User Expected Maximum Power, "Typical Configuration"
(Expressed as Volt-Amps.)
The measured maximum worst case power consumption. This number represents the larges
power consumption that HP engineers were able to produce for the server with any combination
of hardware under laboratory conditions using aggressive software applications designed
specifically to work the system at maximum load. This number can safely be used to compute
thermal loads and power consumption for the system under all conditions.
For further power consumption details, see the HP Integrity rx7640 Installation manual.

60-amp Power Distribution UnitAF916A (NA/JPN) and AF917A (International) - supported in 10KG2 rack
E7683A (US) and E7684A (International) - supported in Rack System E
Customers who prefer the fewest higher amperage connections from their ac line current
source to the HP Integrity rx7640 Server can use the 60 amp power distribution unit (PDU). The
AF916A & AF917A PDU's contain 12 C19 outlets. The E7683A & E7684A PDU's contain 8 C19
outlets. For more details on PDU's, please see PDU sales collateral. This PDU is sold
separately and can be ordered with any HP server solution.
The maximum amperage is 60 amps through the entire PDU and 20 amps per breaker. Both
limits must be met. If each 60 amp PDU can support up to four HP Integrity rx7640 servers if
the PDU is not mounted in the same rack. Up to three HP Integrity rx7640 servers can be
supported if the PDU is mounted within the same rack.
For redundant power inputs, the second set of cords is added. If the second PDU is plugged
into a second grid this configuration provides protection against:

E7681A (North America/JPN) and E7682A (International)-supported with Rack System E
A 30 amp Power Distribution Unit (PDU) is also supported with HP Integrity rx7640 Server.
Rack configurations consisting of peripherals and only one HP Integrity rx7640 Server will likely
be best supported with the 30 amp PDU. This PDU is sold separately and can be ordered with
any HP server solution.
Unlike the 60 amp PDU, each 30 amp PDU can only support one HP Integrity rx7640 Server.
The following configuration guidelines apply when using the 30 amp PDU:
A0 and A1 or B0 and B1 cords should never be plugged into the same PDU
Use two 30 amp PDUs to achieve input power redundancy (plugging A0/A1 and B0/B1
into separate PDUs).
Ordering tools will not force the purchase of a second PDU for input power redundancy. A
second PDU must be manually selected if redundant input power is desired.
Partitioning
A hardware partition corresponds roughly to a single, standalone system. Each HP Integrity
rx7640 Server can be subdivided into two partitions, each containing one cell that has minimal
shared resources with the other cell (partition). Special programmable hardware in the cells
defines the boundaries of a partition in such a way that the isolation is enforced from the
actions of other partitions. Each partition runs its own independent instance of the operating
system (HP UX 11i v3 and HP-UX v2, Windows, Linux, or OpenVMS). Applications cannot
span partitions since each partition runs its own instance of the OS, essentially functioning as a
stand alone server. However, different partitions may be executing the same or different
revisions of an operating system, or they may be executing different operating systems
altogether (such as HP UX, Windows, Linux, or OpenVMS), with OS availability.
Each partition has its own independent CPUs, memory and I/O resources consisting of the
resources of the cells that make up the partition. Resources may be removed from one partition
and added to another without having to physically manipulate the hardware just by using
commands that are part of the System Management interface. With a future release of HP UX,
using the related capabilities of dynamic reconfiguration (e.g. on line addition, on line removal),
new resources may be added to a partition and failed modules may be removed and replaced
while the partition continues in operation.
Partitioning the resources of the complex in this way makes it easy to run multiple application
environments on the same physical system; you can allocate physical resources and tune the
operating system running on each partition depending on the needs of the application (or the
most important application) you intend to run on it. Alternatively, you can configure the HP
Integrity rx7640 Server as a single partition, allowing all the resources to be focused on a single
set of tasks, for example a large online transaction processing application.
You can increase or reduce the processing power of a partition by adding or deleting cells (at
this release, you must shut down the operating system running on the affected partition(s)
before moving cells, and before configuration changes will take effect). Though the OS might
include commands for some configuration tasks, HP recommends you use the Partition
Manager (parmgr) to configure partitions.

HP Integrity rx7640 Server
Configuration
The current release of HP Integrity rx7640 Server/HP UX 11i v2 supports hardware partitioning.
Hardware based partition configuration changes may require a reboot of the partition depending
upon the configuration change. The reboot of the partition only affects the partition that is being
reconfigured. The other partition defined in the chassis is not affected and will continue to
execute without interruption. In a future HP UX release, dynamic hard partitions will be
supported. Dynamic partitions imply that partition configuration changes do not require a reboot
of the partition.
The HP Integrity rx7640 Server can be divided into two independent hardware partitions. In a
partitioned configuration, system resources such as cell boards, I/O slots, core I/O, and disks,
are evenly split between the two partitions (the removable media device is dedicated to partition
1). There is no flexibility to otherwise divide these components. For example, it is not possible
to include 12 I/O slots in partition 0 and 4 I/O slots in partition 1; the split must be even.
The table below summarizes the resource split between hardware partitions.

Software Partitioning
HP Integrity rx7640 servers support virtual partitioning (vPars) to the single processor level similar to support on HP 9000
servers with HP UX 11i v1. With vPars, a user will be able to support up to four separate virtual partitions each with an
instance of HP UX within each hard partition. VPars will provide many of the features of nPars but without the electrical
isolation and support for hardware failures that nPars provides.
HP Virtual machines is supported on the rx7640 server. HP Virtual Machines:
increases server utilization
enables server consolidation
provides rapid deployment of new environments (a requirement for test and development environments)
enhances the HP Virtual Server Environment by providing soft partitioning with shared I/O, sub-CPU granularity,
and built-in dynamic resourcing for all Integrity servers
HP System Insight
Manager
HP Systems Insight Manager (SIM) is the central point of administration for management
applications that address the Integrity rx7640 and rx8640 servers management requirements.
HP SIM delivers powerful monitoring and control, notifying the administrator of potential
hardware or software problems before they occur. It also provides inventory-reporting
capabilities that dramatically reduce the time and effort required to track server assets. HP SIM
provides secure communications as well as role-based security to make certain that its
powerful capabilities are kept secure from unauthorized users.
HP-UX
For most updated HP-UX information please see: www.hp.com/go/hpux
HP Integrity Essentials for HP-UX 11i are advanced plug-ins to HP SIM that provide
modular, integrated system management software for complete HP Integrity server
management. It integrates with many other HP-UX-specific system management tools,

Racking
The HP Integrity rx7640 Server was designed to provide industry leading performance density
and availability when ordered in a racked configuration. At 10 EIA units (17.5 inches), four HP
Integrity rx7640 servers can be mounted into a single HP two meter cabinet (HP 10K G2
Universal rack).
The HP Integrity rx7640 Server industrial design and packaging was designed to allow easy
and quick access to all of the system's components. The most frequently handled devices,
removable media and disks, are directly accessible at the system's front. By removing the front
bezel, hot swap fans, hot swap power supplies, and PCI power supplies can be completely
serviced. At the rear, core I/O and more hot swap fans are directly accessible. For access to all
other components, the rack mounted HP Integrity rx7640 Server comes with rack sliders.
These rack sliders enables the HP Integrity rx7640 Server to be slid forward out of the HP
cabinet for servicing of internal components such as fans, cell boards, and I/O cards, while the
system is still running. The sliders also allows for servicing or replacement of any FRU (field
replaceable unit) without removing the chassis from the cabinet. The HP Integrity rx7640 Server
industrial design and slider strategy enables access and removal of any FRU within 15 minutes
or less. This design feature minimizes the downtime associated with system upgrades in the
rare event of a component failure. Also included with ever rack mounted HP Integrity rx7640
Server is a cable management arm (CMA) The CMA neatly secures data cables and prevents
cables from becoming entangled while servicing of the system.
UPS
Management of local UPSs for the rx7640 and rx8640 is now through a LAN port on the core
I/O card. Management of UPSs by the predecessor, rx7620 and rx8620 servers was through a
serial port on the core I/O. The serial port is not available on the rx7640 and rx8640 servers.
Therefore, when upgrading or adding rx7640 and rx8640 servers to your environment and
using local UPSs (as opposed to datacenter wide UPSs), make sure there is a LAN
management card available on the local UPS.

The HP 9000 and HP Integrity servers are supported for field installs into these racks. Factory
integration is not yet supported for HP 10000 and HP 9000 racks. Differing depth requirements
of the HP 9000/HP Integrity racking kits preclude racking HP 9000/HP Integrity servers and HP
ProLiant servers in the same racks.
Refer to the 10000 G2 Series Rack Best Practices Guide for Information on rack deployment,
stabilization, and transportation. Go to
http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/platforms/rackandpower.html for more
information.
When field racking for the mid-range servers in any rack (10K G2, System E or third-party), the
customer will have t order the appropriate service product (HA124A1 option 570 - HP Startup
Field Racked Mid Server Service).
For further details, refer to the racking solutions subchapter in the configuration guide.
Third-Party Racking
HP Servers are designed to maximize performance density when installed into HP Rack
Systems. HP system Rack Systems maintain the high level of safety and reliability of HP
Server solutions that customers have come to expect. Although HP strongly recommends
racking servers in HP Rack Systems, it is recognizes that some customer circumstances may
prohibit this. For those customers, HP has developed a set of guidelines that when followed,
enables server installations into third-party cabinets. It is extremely important that the
guidelines be followed due to the wide variety of cabinets in the market place.
