Check (SPC), and is the HPE-recommended utility to use to maintain currency with
HPE-published security bulletins for HP-UX software.
HP-UX Workload
Manager
HP-UX Workload Manager (HP-UX WLM) is a resource management tool that provides
automatic processor resource allocation and application performance management
based on your service-level objectives (SLOs) and business priorities. WLM is most
effective managing applications that are processor-bound. It automatically adapts
system or partition CPU resources (cores) to the demands, SLOs, and priorities of the
running applications. (A core is the actual data processing engine within a processor,
where a single processor can have multiple cores, and a core can support multiple
execution threads through Hyper-Threading, introduced with HP-UX 11i v3, as
discussed below.) It adjusts the CPU allocation of a group of processes known as a
workload, basing adjustment on the current needs and performance of the applications
in that workload.
HPE Global Workload The workload management capability for HPE Integrity servers is provided by the HPE
Global Workload Manager component of HPE Insight Dynamics - VSE. HPE Global
Manager
Workload Manager (gWLM), is an intelligent policy engine that automatically allocates
resources among multiple workloads to increase server utilization while meeting
service levels for high-priority applications. Designed to work across multiple HP-UX
11i, OpenVMS and Linux environments, the workload management features are ideal
for large, centralized IT environments that host applications for many departments.
HPE Matrix OE
HPE Matrix OE capabilities let you provision infrastructure in minutes to automatically
activate physical and virtual servers, storage, and networking from pools of shared
resources. Whether you need a single virtual machine or infrastructure for a complex
three-tier application, Matrix OE finds available resources, streamlines the approval
process, and automatically provisions and configures what's needed across
infrastructure silos. Delivering infrastructure to the business becomes faster, more
efficient, and more reliable.
Performance
Manager and Agent
HPE Performance Manager, Agents, and Monitor combine to provide a powerful and
flexible distributed management solution. This solution is a single interface for centrally
monitoring, analyzing, and forecasting resource utilization for distributed multi-vendor
environments, enabling you to offer the best possible level of service in a cost-effective
manner.
Process Resource
HPE Process Resource Manager (HPE PRM) is a resource management tool used to
Page 10
QuickSpecs
HPE Integrity BL870c i4 Server Blade
Standard Features
Manager
control the amount of resources that processes use during peak system load. HPE
PRM can manage allocation of the following resources:
• CPU: Ensures a minimum allocation of CPU; can also simultaneously cap CPU
resource usage for each group in the configuration. (Starting with HP-UX 11i
v3, per-group capping is available.)
• Memory: Ensures a minimum allocation of private real memory; can also cap
private memory usage. Allows you to allocate an exact amount of shared
memory.
• Disk bandwidth: Ensures a minimum allocation of disk bandwidth
HP-UX Containers
One method that Matrix OE uses to improve server resource utilization is to
consolidate multiple applications within a single operating system image. HP-UX
Containers combine kernel level security and prove resource management to stack
multiple applications within the same operating system. HP-UX Containers and HP-UX
Workload Manager can dedicate specific resources to specific applications within an
operating system image, avoiding resource contention issues. Using HP-UX
Containers11i v3 Security Containment, organizations can ensure that application
instances cannot access processes or file from other applications or the system. This
ensures that multiple application instances run securely in a consolidated environment,
providing the benefits of consolidation while preserving the security of a scale out
environment. For software licensing purposes, the maximum number of CPUs in HP-UX
Containers can be capped. This capability is part of the HP-UX Base Operating
Environment (BOE).
Secure Resource
Partitions
One method that HPE Insight Dynamics - VSE uses to improve server resource
utilization is to consolidate multiple applications within a single operating system
image. Secure Resource Partitions combine kernel level security and proven resource
management to stack multiple applications within the same operating system. HPE
Process Resource Manager and HP-UX Workload Manager can dedicate specific
resources to specific applications within an operating system image, avoiding resource
contention issues. Using HP-UX 11i v3 Security Containment, organizations can ensure

Platform security fundamentals
For the past 25 years Hewlett Packard Enterprise has been building one of the most trustworthy and secure
UNIX operating systems on the market. Designed for the optimal protection against both external and internal
threats. HP-UX 11i offers industry-leading breadth and depth of UNIX security features. Focused on
comprehensive security integration aimed at proactively mitigating risk, reducing compliance cost and
accelerating time to implementation, HP-UX security solutions significantly lower IT costs. This set of fully
integrated and complementary features is designed to provide layered security with in-depth protection of all
your enterprise assets by protecting all these aspects of data, systems, data and identity security. HP-UX
independently validates its comprehensive security portfolio through Common Criteria security evaluation. For
more details, visit: https://www.hpe.com/us/en/servers/hp-ux.html
Protecting systems:
One critical factor in enterprise security is system minimization and hardening. HP-UX 11i offers a set of
security features designed to address known and unknown vulnerabilities by running only the services that are
needed, thus minimizing a potential point of attack. The following security features have built-in mechanisms
not only to minimize and harden the system, but also to detect and react to attack in real time:

Protecting data:
HP-UX 11i offers data protection in many forms: protecting data in transit, in use and at rest. By using security
features designed to protect data in its three forms, HP-UX 11i customers can minimize possible breaches not
only in terms of data loss, but in customer trust as well. Several security features offer data protection
capabilities to HP-UX customers:
• Encrypted volume and file system
• Trusted Computing Services
• Security containment
• OpenSSL
• IPSec
• Secure Shell
• MD5sum
Protecting Identity:
In modern day global enterprise companies, managing identity is not an easy task , especially as identity
management requirements grow to include employees, contractors, partners and suppliers across many
countries with various privacy protection laws and regulation. HP-UX 11i dramatically simplifies this critical task
by integrating various identity management technologies which offer ease of use and adherence to compliance
regulation:
• Identity Management Integration
• Select Access for IdMI
• Role-based Access Control
• AAA Server
• HPE Directory Server for HP-UX
• LDAP-UX Client
• Kerberos Server
• Kerberos Client Services
• PAM Kerberos
NOTE: Hewlett Packard Enterprise also offers many additional security features available through open
source software for HP-UX.

Memory
DIMM installation guidelines:
1. All DIMMs must be DDR3 registered memory modules (R-DIMMs)
2. All four DIMM slots in a memory bank must be populated. For each CPU, the memory banks are designated as follows: first
bank consists of pairs A and B, second bank consists of pairs C and D and the third bank consists of pairs E and F.
3. Banks must be populated in sequential Alphabetic order, starting with bank A and B for CPU0, followed by banks A and B
for CPU1, etc.
4. All four DIMMs in a memory bank must be identical. Install identical DIMMs in quads, starting with DIMM pairs A and B
CPU0.
5. DIMMs must be installed in decreasing capacity with the largest DIMMs installed in the smallest numbered DIMM slot.
