HP ProLiant SL4540 Generation 8 (Gen8) Server
Overview
How are you going to scale out to petabytes with your current infrastructure?
Big data, largely unstructured such as messages, images, readings from sensors, and GPS signals from cell phones, are growing at an
exponential rate. The HP ProLiant SL4540 Gen8 Server solves the traditional structured database problems when dealing with big data.
Implementing a scale-out infrastructure will invariably result in challenges of data center capacity, spiraling energy costs,
infrastructure complexity and inefficiencies because today's siloed infrastructure is not optimized for scale-out server workloads
driven by big data. The SL4540 Gen8 Server is a server purpose-built for big data. A highly efficient converged design that delivers the
right combination of capacity and performance, in the least amount of space and at lower cost, with the reliability and manageability
you expect from HP ProLiant Gen8, the world's most intelligent servers.

HP Server ROM
HP ROM (Read Only Memory) is now digitally signed using HP's Corporate Signing Service. This signature is
verified before the flash process starts, reducing accidental programming and preventing malicious efforts
to corrupt system ROM.
HP ROM provides for essential initialization and validation of hardware components before control is
passed to the customer-installed operating system. The ROM also provides the capability of booting from
various fixed media (HDD, CD-ROM) and removable media (USB), to continue operation to the operating
system.
HP ROM performs very early configuration of the video controller, to allow monitoring of initialization
progress via an attached monitor. If configuration or hardware errors are discovered during this early
phase of hardware initialization, suitable messages are now displayed on the connected monitor.
Additionally, these configuration or hardware errors are logged to the Integrated Management Log (IML) to
assist in diagnosis.
HP's ProLiant ROM is used to configure the following:

Common Slot Power
Supply
HP's Common Slot (CS) power supplies allow for commonality of power supplies across a wide range of
ProLiant and Integrity servers, as well as HP Storage solutions, and are designed to provide the highest
power supply efficiency without degrading system performance. HP CS power supplies are tested by the
Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and certified through the ECOS 80 Plus power supply program. HP
CS power supply options provide efficiency ratings of up to 94% and are available in two power output
options - 750W, and 1200W - allowing the user to "right-size" a power supply for their specific server
configuration. All HP Common Slot power sources are UL, CE Mark Compliant, hot-plug and support
redundant configurations. It is highly recommended that you use the HP Power Advisor in defining the
"Right-Size" power supply for your needs. HP Power Advisor can be accessed at:
www.hp.com/go/hppoweradvisor.
NOTE: Mixing of power supplies in the same server is not supported. All power supplies must be of the
same output and efficiency rating. If non-matched power supplies are inserted you will get errors and
operation will fail.
NOTE: The 80 PLUS program is a unique forum that unites electric utilities, the computer industry, and
consumers in an effort to bring energy efficient technology solutions to the marketplace. 80 Plus
independently tests power supply efficiency and publicly posts the results on www.80Plus.org.
NOTE: Redundant Power: Optional redundant power supplies can be purchased through power supply
option kits (see Power Supplies for part numbers).

HP Service Pack for
ProLiant
HP Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) and HP Smart Update Manager (HP SUM)
provide a comprehensive approach to firmware and system software
maintenance. Together they provide better operating stability and ensure
maximum uptime. The SPP will be updated at a predictable cadence, typically
coinciding with new HP server hardware launches. By enabling firmware to be
updated online and integrating firmware and system software updates in one
operation, HP SUM and the SPP offer faster updates of individual servers and
dramatically faster updates of entire BladeSystem enclosures. Further
improving system uptime and stability is the fact that HP provides 12 months
of support for each Service Pack for ProLiant release.
The user experience around HP SUM and the SPP has been improved in several
ways, starting with the web download. A single web page provides access to a
single download containing both the latest version of HP SUM and the latest
SPP. Optional smaller subsets with only specific types of servers or specific
operating systems are offered to save on download time. The HP SUM
application provides a straightforward, intuitive user interface that guides the
user through the steps of discovery, analyses and update, providing
comprehensive information on available updates, criticality and
interdependencies. This information is also available in reports. By providing
the option of multiple local or shared repositories which can be easily updated
from hp.com, HP SUM provides the tools to optimize stability and consistency
throughout the company. While HP SUM and the SPP recommend the
combinations of firmware and system software that HP has found to be the
best practice, the application gives customers the flexibility to set their own
specific baseline.
The Service Pack for ProLiant has been rigorously tested with specific
attention for interaction between firmware, drivers and agents both within the
server as well as in interaction with the BladeSystem enclosure components
(Onboard Administrator and Virtual Connect). This testing ensures the highest
quality as well as providing the input for HP SUM to deploy updates taking into
account all interdepencies, when determining the correct updates and order of
update deployment.
NOTE: The Service Pack for ProLiant (which includes HP SUM) can be
downloaded from www.hp.com/go/spp/download. More information can be

HP SL Advanced Power
Manager
The SL Advanced Power Manager is an optional rack level solution for the HP ProLiant
SL4540 and SL4545 which enables server-level DC (or hardware) power on and off and
server-level monitoring. In addition, the SL APM will automatically discover SL
hardware components which are connected into the SL APM solution.
The SL APM does not replace rack PDUs, but is designed to enable the utilization of
basic, low cost, rack PDUs while providing the functionality of 'switched' PDUs (which
provide hardware power on/off of individual servers by turning off the AC power to the
power supplies of a given server). Because the SL servers share power supplies to
optimize power efficiency, using 'switched' PDUs to turn off all the power supplies in
the chassis will result in the loss of all server nodes in that chassis. The SL APM solves
this by allowing server node-level hardware power on/off of the DC power to the
individual server node motherboards.

Memory
HP ProLiant SL4540 (Gen8) server
NOTE: Memory configurations listed do not apply to "Factory Integrated Models".
NOTE: Chart does not represent all possible memory configurations.
For detailed memory configuration rules and guidelines, please use the Online DDR3 Memory Configuration Tool:
www.hp.com/go/ddr3memory-configurator
Memory Subsystem Architecture
Each Intel® Xeon® E5-2400 family processor socket contains three memory channels that support two DIMMs each for a total of six (6)
DIMM per installed processor or a grand total of twelve (12) DIMMs for the server. Up to 16GB capacity DIMMs are supported for 192GB
of memory (12 DIMM slots x 16GB per DIMM).
DIMM slot and configuration diagrams
Memory population guidelines
General Memory Population Rules and Guidelines:
Light DIMM slots denote the first slot of a channel. For 1 DPC (DIMM per channel) populate light slots only.
Install DIMMs only if the corresponding processor is installed.
If only one processor is installed in a two processor system, only half of the DIMM slots are available.
To maximize performance, it is recommended to balance the total memory capacity between all installed processors and to load
the channels similarly whenever possible.
Populate DIMMs from heaviest load (dual-rank) to lightest load (single-rank) within a channel. Heaviest load (DIMM with most
ranks) within a channel goes furthest from the processor
The maximum memory speed is a function of the memory type, memory configuration, and processor model.
The maximum memory capacity is a function of the memory type and number of installed processors.
HP memory from previous generation servers is not qualified on the SL4540 Gen8 Server. Certain HP SmartMemory features
such as memory authentication and enhanced performance may not be supported.
To realize the performance memory capabilities listed in this document, HP SmartMemory is required. For additional
information, please see the HP SmartMemory QuickSpecs at:
