I am using ilom attached to my sun sparc t3-1 machine. How do I determine the platform group (sun4u/sun4v etc) of my sun host machine through ilom cli.
If there is no direct command to find out then atleast what mapping i should rely on to determine the platform group of a sun server.
Limited models of Oracle Hardwre have ILOM for managment. show /SYS
check for "product_name" - it's describe system type.
After make own map for equipment that you have and platforms.
All system T-series - sun4v
All UltraSPARC, SPARC64 - sun4u ( But not one of this have ILOM for platform managment).
Thanks. Currently I am looking at oracle hardware which have ilom management.
Sure I could retrieve product name through ilom using show /SYS. The product I get is "SPARC T3-1"
With the mapping you suggest the the host machine platform group would be sun4v.
Is this the only way to find the platform group, could there be a way to find out what CPU info the host machine is running using iloms? Could there be another mapping using cpu models to determine the platform group?
You can say
show /SYS -l all
and see what information available.
Problem that device tree is platfrom depended, so it more ease make mapping based on "product name".
But again. In case you can login via ILOM interface and this system is not x86 - this system sun4v.
Listed show /SYS -l all
There is lot of information on mother board etc. Nothing straight forward on what platform group does the system belong to.
I could see /SYS/MB/CMP0 whose type is host processor, which has core0 - core16 targets. Each core target has 8 CPU threads po-p7.
I don't know what to make of it.
What i am thinking is this, sun4v means sun 4 series with virtualization. Which means it should have support of hypervisor processor virtulization.
I could see in show /HOST, the hypervisor_version property with its version number.
I am thinking if this property exists and is populated with a version number than the system platform group is sun4v.
