Systems/Options
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 system, 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 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?
− If the configuration will contain more than 16 CPUs, hardware partitioning is required.
• 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:
• Mandatory purchase: The system cannot function without this option or service − the option or service must be ordered with the system.
• Required to 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: System performance or function will be enhanced if this option or service is ordered.

future capacity expansion. The CPUs will be field installed as part of the system installation. The total number of CPUs – base CPU,
SMP CPUs, and CCoD CPUs – must adhere to the limits shown in the above table. Refer to the Compaq Capacity on Demand
Program described in the “Upgrades” section.

GS160/320 CCoD SMP CPU, includes one 6/1001-MHz CPU module with 8-MB onboard cache, OpenVMS SMP license, and CCoD program license
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.
3X-MS8AA-AB
0.5-GB GS80/160/320 base memory module

2-GB GS80/160/320 memory DIMM upgrade
3X-MS8AA-DB
4-GB GS80/160/320 base memory module
3X-MS8AA-DU
4-GB GS80/160/320 memory DIMM upgrade
Note: ES40 configurations that require N+1 redundant power are restricted to a
maximum of 24-GB of mixed memory (sixteen 1-GB DIMMs and sixteen 512-MB
DIMMs). If N+1 redundant power is not required, 32-GB of memory is supported.
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-MS8AA-BU), is a better choice than a configuration of three
2-GB modules (3X-MS8AA-CB).

Step 4 − Select Memory Options (continued)
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.

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 V4.0G or Tru64 UNIX V5.1, or
an instance of OpenVMS V7.2-1H1. Each partition is allocated its own dedicated “shared-nothing” set of hardware resources: QBB(s), CPU module(s),
memory module(s), and I/O.
•
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) and one console hub (3X-DS8AA-AA) are required 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 Alpha 21264 6/1001-MHz CPU module
•
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 an
H9A20-AA/AB/AC 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 V4.0G, Tru64 UNIX V5.1, or OpenVMS V7.2-1H1). 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.

Step 5 − Evaluate Configuration Requirements to Support Optional Partitioning (continued)
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 licenseonly 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-320EC-Ax and 31 3X-KN8AA-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-320EC-Ax and 31 3X-KN8AA-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 6 − Configure Packaging Options
Step 6a − Redundant (N+1) Power Supplies
•
Power supplies included with Model 24 and Model 32 systems can support all combinations of CPUs, memory, and I/O that can be
configured within the system boxes.
•
Additional 48V power regulators can be ordered to provide N+1 power redundancy.
•
For Model 24 systems, order three power supplies to achieve N+1 capability; for Model 32 systems, order four power supplies to
achieve N+1 capability.

•
Additional PCI drawers and storage shelves can be installed in optional H9A20-AD/AE/AF expansion cabinets. Up to four H9A20AD/AE/AF cabinets are supported.
•
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 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 H9A20-AD when 120V input power is required. In all other cases, the H9A20-AF
is preferred because of the ability to support dual AC input.
•
H9A20-AD/AE/AF cabinets may be joined to GS320 systems. PCI drawers placed in these cabinets require 7-m I/O cables.
•
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).

Step 7 − Internal Storage
PCI UltraSCSI Adapters and Controllers
•
Tru64 UNIX 4.0G or Tru64 UNIX V5.1/5.1A supports a maximum of 64 total SCSI controllers per operating system instance (hardware partition).
Support for these controller quantities will be phased-in. OpenVMS 7.2-1H1 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-ROM connected to the STD-IO), which is included in the overall
count of SCSI controllers configured in the system (or partition). Tru64 UNIX counts FIS disk and CDROM 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 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,
DS-KZPCC-CE, DS-KGPSA-CA Fibre Channel, and two embedded master PCI components per master PCI drawer. OpenVMS includes the following
devices in this count: KZPBA-CA,
KZPBA-CB, 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.

Step 9 − MEMORY CHANNEL
•

•
•
•
Up to two PCI System Area Network controllers are supported on a GS320 system or hardware partition
Two-node clusters can be configured by ordering a CCMAB-AA for each system and one BN29B-04 or BN29B-10 cable, cable
connects directly to CCMAB-AA in each system
For three or four system clusters, order one CCMAB-AA adapter and one BN29B-04 or BN29B-10 cable for each system 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-AA controllers are configured in each system, a second CCMHB-AA hub is required for clusters with more than
two nodes; in two-node clusters the CCMAB-AA may be directly connected
One or two MEMORY CHANNEL adapters can be placed on a PCI bus segment; however, no other devices can be placed on the
same segment, and the remaining slots must be left empty.

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 an H9A20-AA 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

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-AA/AB). 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-AA/AB cabinet.
•
AlphaServer GS320 Model 24 and Model 32 systems require both the 3X-H7512-AA/AB and the 3X-H7512-BA/BB
Note: H9A20-xx expansion cabinets include N+1 power on separate power controllers and may be directly connected to two different AC
feeds.
