cations, telecom applications, software development, and
replicated site applications. The 3-U system box can be
mounted in a cabinet or used on a desktop.
Compaq AlphaServer products use the 64-bit Alpha RISC
architecture that supports multiple operating systems:
Tru64 UNIX, OpenVMS, and Linux.
System Overview
The Compaq AlphaServer DS10 systems are available with the
600 MHz Alpha chip, the 21264A (marketed as 600 MHz but
it actually runs at 616 MHz). Memory begins at 256 Mbytes
and can be increased to 2 Gbytes. Second-level cache is 2
Mbytes. The switch-based system interconnect exploits the full
potential of the Alpha chip.
The system measures 17 x 19 x 5 inches (3U) and can be
placed on a desktop or rackmounted in a choice of three Mseries cabinets, along with additional disks. In the largest
cabinet (79 inches) up to 12 systems can be installed, or if
more storage is desired, there can be up to 6 StorageWorks
shelves and up to 8 systems. A rackmount slide kit is included
with each system.
Six drive bays are available for storage devices. Each system
includes a CD-ROM and floppy; a 5.25-inch removable media
device can be added. With four 1-inch disks, there can be 218
GB of storage in the system box.
There are four full-length PCI slots: three 64-bit slots and one
32-bit slot. Integrated on the system board are two 10/100 Mbit
fast Ethernet controllers, an IDE controller, two serial ports,
one parallel port, remote management console, and keyboard
and mouse ports.
Features and Benefits
•
Performance
The Alpha chip, the world’s fastest microprocessor, is offered
with a switch-based interconnect that supports one 600 MHz
processor and up to 2 Gbytes of memory. This switch-based
system provides a memory bandwidth of up to 1.3 Gbytes/sec
(peak) using a 128-bit memory bus running at 77 MHz. The
peak I/O bandwidth is 250 Mbyes/sec.
•
Multiple Operating Systems
No other server offers the flexibility of running so many
operating systems: Tru64 UNIX, OpenVMS, and Linux. It’s
ideal as a development tool as well as a Web server or file
server, or for remote applications or E-commerce applications.
•
Package and Price
All the features of AlphaServers are now available in a
package that goes anywhere at a price attractive to everyone.
Start with one and then add to your base as your needs
demand. Use the DS10 as a dedicated system or set up a
cluster.
•
DS10 Workstations
The 600 MHz system is also offered as a workstation and is
called the AlphaStation DS10.
Systems can be purchased with the Tru64 UNIX or OpenVMS
operating systems installed. Or they can be purchased without
any operating system, allowing customers to install Linux.

Third-Generation Alpha Chip
The third generation of the Alpha microprocessor, the Alpha
21264, is a superscalar, superpipelined implementation of the
Alpha architecture. The first offering of this chip, which was
manufactured using the CMOS-6 process, was known as EV6
and now the EV67 (21264A) chip is available, which uses the
CMOS-7 process. Over 15.2 million transistors are on one die.
In our discussion here, the Alpha 21264 designation applies to the
EV6 and the EV67 chips, unless we need to distinguish between
the two. Designed for performance, the Alpha 21264 achieves this
goal by carefully studied and simulated architectural and circuit
analysis. The 21264 memory system also enables the high performance levels. On-chip and off-chip caches provide for very low
latency data access, which allows for very high bandwidth data
access. The 21264A 2-Mbyte off-chip cache runs at 205 MHz.
Internal to each chip is a 64-Kbyte instruction cache (I-cache)
and a 64-Kbyte data cache (D-cache).
• I-cache. 64 Kbytes, two-way set-associative, virtually
addressed cache with 64-byte blocks
• D-cache. 64 Kbytes, two-way set-associative, virtually
indexed, physically tagged, writeback cache with 64-byte
blocks
Chip Operation
Several key design choices were made in the chip architecture
to maximize performance: Four instructions are fetched each
cycle, and then how those instructions are handled boosts the
speed of execution. Register renaming assigns a unique storage
location with each write reference to a register, avoiding register
dependencies that can be a potential bottleneck to processor
performance.
Another design feature, out-of-order execution, permits
instructions to execute in an order different from the order that
the instructions are fetched. In effect, instructions execute as
soon as possible. This allows for faster execution since critical
path computations are started and completed as soon as
possible.
In addition, the Alpha 21264 employs speculative execution to
maximize performance. It speculatively fetches and executes
instructions even though it may not know immediately whether
the instruction will be on the final execution path. This is
particularly useful, for instance, when the 21264 predicts
branch directions and speculatively executes down the
predicted path. The sophisticated branch prediction in the
21264 coupled with the speculative and dynamic execution
extracts the most instruction parallelism from applications.

Architecture
The traditional bus interconnect has been replaced by a switchbased interconnect system. With a bus design, the processors,
memory, and I/O modules share the bus. As the number of bus
users increases, the transactions interfere with one another,
increasing latency and decreasing aggregate bandwidth.
However, with a switch-based system there is no degradation
in performance as the number of CPUs, memory, and I/O users
increase. Although the users increase, the speed is maintained.
This chipset, similar to those used in the AlphaServer DS20
and ES40 systems, supports up to one CPU and up to 2 Gbytes
memory. Interleaving occurs when at least two memory arrays
are used.
The PAD bus, the interface between the P-chip and the Dchips, is 32 data bits with 4 check bits. The 128-bit memory
bus supports two memory arrays, yielding a 1.3 Gbyte/sec
system bandwidth. Transactions are ECC protected. Upon the
receipt of data, the receiver checks for data integrity and
corrects any errors.
With a switch-based, or point-to-point interconnect, the
performance remains constant, even though the number of
transactions multiplies. The switched system interconnect uses
a set of complex chips that route the traffic over multiple paths.
The chipset consists of one C-chip, one P-chip, and two Dchips.
• C-chip. Provides the command interface from the CPU.
• D-chips. Provide the data path for the CPU, main
memory, and I/O.
• P-chip. Provides the interface to the PCI bus.

System Board
The interconnect switch is implemented on the system board
by the chipset consisting of one C-chip, one P-chip, and two
D-chips. The chipset provides the data and address path
between the CPU, memory, and the I/O subsystem.
into the system board is the logic needed for all the ports
shown on the left side of the module, including the two
Ethernet ports, and also for the two IDE connectors.
Jumpers on the board allow you to change the action of the
Halt button and disable the RMC timer.
The CPU installed on the system board is the Alpha 21264A
(600 MHz). The four cache chips provide 2 Mbytes of secondlevel cache. A flash ROM holds the SRM console code, the
AlphaBIOS console code, and the NVRAM data. The remote
management console (RMC) is implemented by the RMC
processor and is accessed through the COM1 port. Integrated
Connectors are on the system board for five other cards: the
PCI riser card and four memory DIMMs.

Memory Options
Memory Performance Considerations
Each memory option consists of two 200-pin industry-standard
DIMMs. The DIMMs are synchronous DRAMs. Memory
options are available in the following sizes:
• 256 Mbytes (128 MB DIMMs)
• 512 Mbytes (256 MB DIMMs)
• 1 Gbyte (512 MB DIMMs)
With one memory option (2 DIMMs), memory operation
interleaving will not occur. With two memory options (4
DIMMs), memory read-write operations are two-way
interleaved. Interleaved operations reduce the average latency
and increase the memory throughput over noninterleaved
operations.
The system supports 2 Gbytes of memory.

System I/O
•
The industry-standard PCI bus is the number one choice for
high-performance I/O options, such as disk storage and highperformance video applications.
•
•
Supports three address spaces: PCI I/O, PCI memory, and
PCI configuration space

The PCI bus implementation has the following characteristics:
• Fully compliant with the PCI Version 2.1 Specification
• Operates at 31 MHz, delivering a peak bandwidth of 250
Mbytes/sec.

System Control
Close monitoring and control of the system environment and
hardware is done by the remote management console (RMC).
This logic allows the system operator to perform console
operations remotely using a dial-in modem. The RMC logic is
implemented using a PIC17C44 microprocessor on the system
board. The RMC firmware code resides on the microprocessor
and in flash memory. The RMC is powered by an auxiliary
5V supply, so even when the system is powered off at the
control panel the RMC can be accessed—so long as the system
is plugged in.

Storage
The DS10 comes with either an internal storage cage or a front
access storage cage. The internal storage cage systems have
five storage/media bays. In addition to the floppy and CDROM, the other three storage bays can support three internal
3.5” x 1” hard disk drives or two internal 3.5” x 1” hard disk
drives and one 5.25” x 1.6” removable media device.
Disks supported are 20 and 40 GB IDE disks and 18.2 and 36.4
GB UltraSCSI disks. In addition, a 72.8 GB universal wide
Ultra3 SCSI disk is supported with the front access storage
cage.
RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks)
The system can be configured with optional PCI RAID
controllers to organize disk data cost-effectively, improve
performance, and provide high levels of storage integrity.
Today, RAID is only available with StorageWorks shelves.
The optional RAID controllers have the following features:
• Support for hot-swap drives
• Automatic rebuild after hot swap
• Console support for booting system from RAID
• RAID levels 0, 1, 0+1, 5
• Optional write cache
• Optional read cache
• Support for command queuing

Server Management
Reliability and Availability Features
The AlphaServer products support important operational and
platform management requirements.
The AlphaServer DS10 system achieves an unparalleled level
of reliability and availability through the careful application of
technologies that balance redundancy, error correction, and
fault management. Reliability and availability features are
built into the CPU, memory, and I/O, and implemented at the
system level.
Operational Management
Server/Network Management. Compaq Insight Manager is
included with every system. This software tool allows you to
monitor and control Alpha based servers. Insight Manager
consists of two components: a Windows-based console application and server- or client-based management data collection
agents. Management agents monitor over 1,000 management
parameters. Key subsystems are instrumented to make health,
configuration, and performance data available to the agent
software. The agents act upon that data, by initiating alarms in
the event of faults and by providing updated management information, such as network interface or storage subsystem performance statistics.
Remote Server Management. The integrated remote management console (RMC) lets the operator perform several tasks
from a serial console: monitor the system power, temperature,
and fans, and reset, halt, and power the system on or off. The
monitoring can be done locally or remotely through a modem.
Platform Management
The AlphaServer DS10 systems support platform management
tasks such as manipulating and monitoring hardware performance, configuration, and errors. For example, the operating
systems provide a number of tools to characterize system performance and display errors logged in the system error log file.
In addition, system console firmware provides hardware
configuration tools and diagnostics to facilitate quick hardware
installation and troubleshooting. The system operator can use
simple console commands to show the system configuration,
devices, boot and operational flags, and recorded errors. Also,
the console provides inventory support and configuration
management by giving access to serial numbers and revisions
of hardware and firmware.
Processor Features
•
•
•
CPU data cache provides error correction code (ECC)
protection.
Parity protection on CPU cache tag store.
Multi-tiered power-up diagnostics to verify the
functionality of the hardware.
Memory Features
•
The memory ECC scheme is designed to provide maximum protection for user data. The memory scheme
corrects single-bit errors and detects double-bit errors and
total DRAM failure.
I/O Features
•
•
•
ECC protection on the switch interconnect and parity
protection on the PCI and SCSI buses.
Extensive error correction built into disk drives.
Optional internal RAID improves reliability and data
security.
System Features
Auto reboot. On systems running Tru64 UNIX or OpenVMS, a
firmware environment variable lets you set the default action
the system takes on power-up, reset, or after an operating
system crash. For maximum system availability, the variable
can be set to cause the system to automatically reboot the
operating system after most system failures.
Software installation. The operating systems are factory
installed. Factory installed software (FIS) allows you to boot
and use your system in a shorter time than if you install the
software from a distribution kit.
Error Reporting
Compaq Analyze, a diagnostic service tool used to determine
the cause of hardware failures, is installed with the operating
systems. It provides automatic background analysis, as it
constantly views and reads the error log file. It analyzes both
single error/fault events and multiple events. When an error
condition is detected, it collects the error information and
sends it and an analysis to the user. The tool requires a
graphics monitor for its output display.
Security
•
•
The top cover can be locked with a key.
Password protection is offered by the SRM console and
RMC.
Diagnostics. During the power-up process, diagnostics are run
to achieve several goals:
• Provide a robust hardware platform for the operating
system by ensuring that any faulty hardware does not
participate in the operating system session. This maximizes system uptime by reducing the risk of system
failure.
• Enable efficient, timely repair.
Audible beep codes report the status of diagnostic testing.
The system has a firmware update utility (LFU) that provides
update capability for console and PCI I/O adapter firmware. A
fail-safe loader provides a means of reloading the console in
the event of corrupted firmware.
Thermal management. The air temperature and fan operation
are monitored to protect against overheating and possible
hardware destruction. Four fans provide cooling. The system
fan is under the floppy drive; another fan cools the PCI area.
Also, a fan is mounted over the Alpha chip, and the power
8
supply has a fan. If the temperature rises, the system fan
speeds up; or if necessary to prevent damage, the system shuts
down.
OpenVMS cluster systems use the CI, SCSI, Ethernet, FDDI,
and Memory Channel as the interconnect between disks and
the system.
Error handling. Parity and other error conditions are detected
on the PCI bus. The memory checking scheme corrects singlebit errors and detects double-bit errors. Multiple ECC
corrections to single-bit errors detected by the operating
systems help in determining where in the system the error
originated. Errors are logged for analysis.
The primary means of clustering AlphaServer DS10 systems
depends on the operating system.
• Ethernet, OpenVMS
• CI clusters, OpenVMS only
• Memory Channel, Tru64 UNIX and OpenVMS
• SCSI clusters, Tru64 UNIX and OpenVMS
Uninterruptible power supply. An external UPS can be
purchased to support critical customer configurations. Because
power is maintained for the entire system (CPU, memory, and
I/O), power interruptions are completely transparent to users.
Performance
Clustering
A cluster is a loosely coupled set of systems that behaves (is
addressed and managed) like a single system, but provides
high levels of availability through redundant CPUs, storage,
and data paths. Clusters are also highly scalable; that is, CPU,
I/O, storage, and application resources can be added incrementally to efficiently increase capacity. For customers, this
translates to reliable access to system resources and data, and
investment protection of both hardware and software.
Clustering allows multiple computer systems to communicate
over a common interface, share disks, and spread the computing load across multiple CPUs.
Compaq has an ongoing program of performance engineering,
using industry-standard benchmarks that allow comparisons
across major vendors’ systems. These benchmarks against
competitive systems are based on comparable CPU performance, coupled with comparable memory and disk expandability.
See Table 1 for the performance numbers of the AlphaServer
DS10 systems. System performance, however, is highly dependent upon application characteristics. Thus, benchmark
information is one helpful “data point” to be used in conjunction with other purchase criteria such as features, service, and
price.
Sources of Performance Information
Performance information is available on the Internet.

PCI to Memory Channel Interconnect
Under Tru64 UNIX and OpenVMS, you can build high-availability clusters using the PCI to Memory Channel interconnect.
The Memory Channel interconnect is a high-bandwidth, lowlatency PCI-based communications interconnect for up to eight
AlphaServer systems. Data written to one computer’s memory
is shared by other computers on the Memory Channel bus.
The PCI adapter is the interface between a PCI and a Memory
Channel bus. This bus is a memory-to-memory computer
system interconnect that permits I/O space writes in one
computing node to be replicated into the memories of all other
nodes on the Memory Channel bus. A write performed by any
CPU to its reflected address region results in automatic
hardware updates to memory regions in other nodes. One
node’s write is “reflected” to other nodes as a direct side effect
of the local write. This provides a memory region with
properties similar to a high-performance shared memory
across a group of nodes.
