Limited models of Oracle Hardwre have ILOM for managment.
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?
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.
