Step 1b - Requirements for Partitions
A single AlphaServer GS1280 can be divided into logical hardware partitions as small as two processors, 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: 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.

1. One Dual CPU Building Block Module (Step 3)
2. Memory (Step 4)
3. I/O Drawer (Step 5)
a. One Standard I/O Drawer (Master or Expansion), or
b. Shared (up to four hard partitions) access to one High Performance I/O Drawer (Master or Expansion)
4. One local disk (Step 5) or external storage for the system software. Network boot can be used in place of the disk
storage.
5. User access via the USB port in a Master I/O Drawer, a network connection (requires a LAN or WAN I/O adapter), or
local terminal (requires an async I/O adapter).
6. All systems require the following minimum firmware and software revisions to run hard partitions:
a. Minimum Firmware console rev: V6.5-8
b. Tru64 UNIX: V5.1B + Patch kit - T64V51BB22AS0002-20030415.tar
c. OpenVMS: V7.3-1 + TIMA Kits (available at http://h18003.www1.hp.com/alphaserver/gs1280/gs1280_tech.html):
i. DEC-AVPVMS-VMS731_PARTITIONING-V0100-4.PCSI
ii. AVPVMS-VMS731_PARTITIONING-V0100_CVRLET
iii. AVPVMS-VMS731_PARTITIONING-V0100_SUBFORM
Configuration Guidelines
1. The two processors on a Dual Processor CPU Module cannot be split between hard partitions.
2. The set of processors assigned to a partition must form a continuous rectangle on the system interconnect mesh
network.
3. CPU modules in an 8P Building Block Drawer share the same 48v power feed (from a redundant power supply). If the
8P Building Block Drawer contains all or portions of several hard partitions, a power fault in the drawer could affect all
the partitions in that drawer. Hard partitions that consist of whole 8P Building Block Drawers limit the risk of a power
fault in one drawer to one partition.
4. Base systems include an operating system license (Tru64 UNIX or OpenVMS) that licenses all hardware partitions of
the system.
5. The license for an HP software product, the license(s) and license key(s) that represent those licenses, may be
applied to any partition (OpenVMS Galaxy instance or hardware partition) within that system. Different versions of the
operating system or layered products may be used on different partitions. In this case, the customer must be licensed
for the latest version in use. Software products from other suppliers may have different licensing requirements for
partitions.
Step 1c - Licensing Systems for Both OpenVMS and Tru64 UNIX
A System requires licenses for both OpenVMS and Tru64 UNIX operating systems, either for dual O/S boot of the entire
system or for different operating systems in separate hard partitions. To use a second operating system, order the
appropriate base system upgrade license and as many dual CPU SMP licenses as needed.

Step 1d - System Management Hardware/Software Requirements
Each AlphaServer ES47, ES80, and GS1280 system includes System Management software that can significantly enhance
and simplify monitoring and control of the system. Use of the System Management software is optional. 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 ES47, ES80, and GS1280 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 ES47, ES80, or GS1280 Alpha System. The
AMU is a GUI based application that provides a sophisticated, yet user-friendly graphics interface. The AMU is a Webbased 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, 4-GB 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.
3. Both the AMS and AMU software require Internet Explorer 5.5 or later or Netscape 4.76 or later.
4. AMS/AMU software kits and instructions may be downloaded from:

Configuration and Use of instant Capacity (iCAP) CPUs
The instant Capacity (iCAP) program gives HP customers the option to purchase add-on CPU modules at a reduced price
and install those modules in systems ready to activate instantly when needed for extra computational capacity. To use the
iCAP program for AlphaServers:
1. Order and install iCAP CPU modules along with Full Use CPUs. The total number of Full Use CPU Building Block
Modules plus iCAP CPU Building Bock Modules must adhere to the limits outlined above for GS1280 systems.
2. Use the iCAP software (supplied with the iCAP CPU Module) to set iCAP CPUs inactive. As long as the total number
of active CPUs does not exceed the number of licensed CPUs owned for the system, the owner may choose which
CPUs to designate as iCAP.
3. Inactive iCAP CPUs cannot include the primary CPU, CPUs responsible for hardware interrupts, CPUs being used by
an application when configuring iCAP, or a CPU connected to an I/O Building Block Drawer.
4. Activate the iCAP CPUs for First Use when extra capacity is needed, and then promptly purchase the iCAP
Enablement (Right-to-Use).

TERMS and DEFINITIONS
iCAP CPU MODULE
AlphaServer CPU add-on module including the OpenVMS SMP or Tru64 Unix SMP extension
license, end user product warranty, iCAP software, plus limited Rights-to-Access the CPU module
and leave inactive until First Use.
FIRST USE
First Use takes place when one or more processors on the iCAP CPU Module are activated for
permanent use.
iCAP ENABLEMENT
PROGRAM PERIOD
Temporary replacement of a failed CPU with an iCAP CPU does not constitute First Use.
Activation of an iCAP CPU after deactivation of a full use CPU does not constitute First Use. For
example, owners are permitted to deactivate a Full Use CPU in one hard partition of the system
and activate an iCAP CPU in another hard partition without First Use of the iCAP CPU. First Use
of an iCAP CPU Module is considered to have taken place only when the number of active CPUs
in the system is greater than the number of purchased full use CPUs.
Grants full Right-to-Use for a previously purchased iCAP CPU Module.
There is no time limit to activate an iCAP CPU.

Step 4 - Select Memory Options - Mandatory
Configuration Guidelines
1. Mandatory selection of one memory option per CPU (two memory options per Dual CPU Building Block Module).
2. Optional selection of a second memory option for each CPU.
3. Both options must be the same size and speed for a CPU, but different size options can be used on different CPUs.
4. Each memory option consists of four RDRAM Inline Memory Modules (RIMMs). An optional fifth RIMM (RAID option)
may be selected for redundancy that will allow uninterrupted operation in case of the loss of an entire RIMM. RAID
options must be selected and matched for each memory option on one CPU, but RAID options do not have to be
selected for all CPUs.
NOTE: Memory must be ordered for iCAP CPU Modules as well as Full Use CPU Modules. The system will use memory
installed on the iCAP CPU Module even when the iCAP CPU is inactive.

Configuring memory is a compromise between cost, total memory capacity, and memory bandwidth requirements. The
following may be used as guidelines:
Applications, in which large amounts of memory can substantially reduce I/O throughput, may be optimized for total
memory capacity and future capacity growth. (Case B)
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. (Case B)
Data mining can benefit from additional memory bandwidth. It is best to match the number of memory base modules
to the number of CPUs. (Case A)
The most demanding high-performance technical applications achieve a performance level that is directly proportional
to memory bandwidth. In these cases, configure two memory options per CPU. (Case A)

Step 5 - System I/O Expansion - Mandatory
Configuration Guidelines
1. Each AlphaServer GS1280 system requires one I/O Master Building Block Drawer per system. Additional I/O Building
Block Drawers are optional.
2. Each additional hard partition in the system requires:
One Standard I/O Drawer (Master or Expansion), or
Shared (up to four hard partitions) access to one High Performance I/O Drawer (Master or Expansion)
3. Each CPU in a GS1280 System Building Block Drawer can provide one I/O connection to an I/O Drawer.
4. Either a Standard I/O Drawer (Expansion or Master) or High Performance I/O Drawer (Expansion or Master) can be
used for optional I/O expansion. Any combination of drawers is supported up to the I/O connection limit of 32 per hard
partition or 64 per system with 2 or more hard partitions.
The Standard I/O Drawer requires one I/O connection.
The High Performance I/O Drawer requires one and optionally up to four connections.
Example - AlphaServer GS1280 Model 16 with 12 processors
Twelve Processors, one I/O connection each
Six Standard I/O Drawers, one I/O connection each

NOTES:
1. One High Performance I/O Drawer can be used by up to four separate hard partitions. Each of the four I/O
connections (and two associated PCI-X slots) in the High Performance I/O Drawer can be independently controlled
(e.g. power on/off) in conjunction with a separate partition.
2. A Master I/O Drawer consists of a Standard or High Performance I/O Drawer plus a Combination Adapter in one slot.
The Combination Adapter provides an Ultra3 SCSI connection for two disks and a DVD/CD-RW drive in the drawer,
plus a USB connection for keyboard, mouse, and monitor. The Master I/O Drawer is required for all GS1280 systems
integrated at the manufacturing plant by HP. If the final system configuration does not require these I/O devices, the
Combination Adapter may be removed and replaced with the following alternatives:
System Boot - External storage or network boot can be used in place of the disk storage internal to the I/O
Drawer.
Software Load - Software can be loaded over the network from a disk on another system or directly from a CD
reader attached to another system by using remote mount.
User I/O - User access via a network connection can be used in place of the direct connection via the USB port.
3. The two disks in the Master I/O Drawer can only be connected to the system via the Combination Adapter's Ultra3
SCSI connection. The I/O Drawer design does not permit connection from other storage adapters, such as a RAID
adapter, that might be installed in the I/O Drawer.
4. Each Master I/O Drawer supports up to two, optional, hard disk drives. See the Disks step of the ES/GS Common
Options section of this QuickSpec for the selection of supported disk drives.

Step 7 - Dual AC Power - Optional
A Dual AC power option provides the capability to connect to two separate 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 determined by the user. In the event of failure of the primary feed, the system will
automatically transfer the load to the secondary feed without power interruption.
Dual AC is included as a standard feature in the:
GS1280 Model 32 with Dual AC (DA/DY-1280A-CC)
GS1280 Model 64 with Dual AC (DA/DY-1280A-BD)
Dual AC is an option for:
GS1280 Model 8
GS1280 Model 16

ES/GS Common Options
AlphaServer ES47/ES80 and GS1280 systems offer three types of I/O bus standards for adapters and controllers.
1. PCI-X — Peripheral Component Interconnect Extended is a computer bus interface standard for connecting a
microprocessor and attached devices. PCI-X doubles the speed and amount of data exchanged between the computer
processor and peripherals from the predecessor PCI bus. PCI-X is backwards-compatible, meaning that users can, for
example, install a PCI-X card in a standard PCI slot but expect a decrease in speed to 66 MHz or 33 MHz. Users can
also use both PCI and PCI-X cards on the same PCI-X bus, but the bus will run at the speed of the slowest card. PCI-X
is more fault tolerant than PCI. For example, PCI-X is able to reinitialize a faulty card or take it offline before computer
failure occurs.
2. PCI — Peripheral Component Interconnect is a computer bus interface standard for connecting a microprocessor and
attached devices.
3. AGP 4 — Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) is an interface specification that enables 3-D graphics to display quickly. It is
especially useful in conjunction with three-dimensional (3D) video, and sophisticated scientific and engineering graphics
programs. AGP runs at several times the bus speed of conventional Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI). Because
of this, the data transfer rate using AGP is significantly greater than with PCI video cards. The AGP 4X mode provides
high performance levels with a peak bandwidth of 1066 MB/s. AGP 4X mode is a superset to the 1X and 2X modes;
thus, all components supporting AGP 4X must also support 1X and 2X modes.
The following table presents the matrix of maximum, theoretical I/O throughput for the different standards. Actual I/O
throughput will be less than calculated because of protocol overhead and contention for bus capacity.

Step 2 - MEMORY CHANNEL — Optional
Configuration Guidelines
1. Each Memory Channel adapter must be the only device on the PCI/PCI-X bus segment.
2. Two-node clusters can be configured by ordering one adapter (CCMAB-BA) for each node and one cable (BN39B-04
or BN39B-10) between the two systems.
3. For a two-node cluster that will not need to be rebooted when adding additional members, order one adapter
(CCMAB-BA) and one cable (BN39B-04 or BN39B-10) for each node plus one hub (CCMHB-AA) for the cluster.
4. For three or four node clusters, order one adapter (CCMAB-BA) and one cable (BN39B-04 or BN39B-10) for each
node and one hub (CCMHB-AA) for the cluster.
5. The hub (CCMHB-AA) includes four line cards and supports up to four nodes; expansion up to eight system nodes
can be achieved by adding up to four line cards (CCMLB-AA).
6. If two adapters (CCMAB-BA) are configured in each system, a second hub (CCMHB-AA) is required.
7. If nodes must be separated by a distance longer than standard copper cables allow, the CCMFB option converts the
output of the standard controller or line card to single-mode fiber optic cable. The fiber optic connection may be up to
2,000 meters long between two controllers connected in virtual hub mode, or 3,000 meters between a controller and a
hub. (The connection from the 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 controller
with the short cable, BN39B-01. The CCMFB option is also used in the hub where it occupies a slot normally used by
a line card, limiting expansion to four radial fiber optic connections.
8. The hub expansion box (CCMHB-BA) 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
fiber optic connection. Fiber optic connectivity is completely transparent to the systems using it and has no
performance impact

Performance NOTE: The AGP version of the Radeon graphics accelerator will deliver significantly better performance for
EV7 systems because the AGP bus is faster than the PCI bus; plus the AGP accelerator does not contend with other
adapters on the AGP bus (each AGP bus has only one adapter slot). The Radeon AGP graphics accelerator delivers about
the same performance on EV7 and EV68 systems. However, the Radeon PCI graphics accelerator delivers noticeably better
performance on EV68 systems compared to EV7 systems because the EV7 systems' hardware implementation of
"Programmable I/O" is not as fast as the EV68 implementation.
