    SPARC Enterprise T5240 Server CPU and Memory details

    ICT_Pianist

      Hi,

       

      I am newbie to this world

      We have different servers: Sparc T4,T3 and Enterprise T5240. I am using serial connection to the servers to display the memory and cpu details for sparc T4 and T3 servers by excuting the commands

      > show /SP/SYS/Memory

      >show /SP/SYS/processors

      but for T5240 i can not use them,  i use instead:

      > show -l all -o table /SYS type==DIMM but this take a while until reading all the details

      and with the command :

      show -l all -o table /SYS type=="Host Processor" i get no details

       

      Is there any other commands i can consider to display the memory and CPU details for ILOM , ALOM and LOM?

       

      Thanks in advance

          Hi ICT_Pianist,

           

          you could shorten the search path in my humble opinion to optimize the response time, as well as
          to limit the information parts you want see ( part number + serial e.g + status. ). Secondly it might be
          faster to use implicit "-l all -o table" by applying the alias for the same "-t", if you really need the table
          output.

           


          -> show -t /SYS/MB type==DIMM fru_part_number fru_serial_number fault_state

            is there any other commands to show CPU and RAID controller details?

              Hi ICT_Pianist,

               

               

              On ILOM , there is only the "show" command, no other command to visualisize

              the "Property" "Values" of given "Targets"

               

              You need to know the available properties for the target and it's sub-targets:

               

              example:

               

              -> cd /SYS/MB

               

              -> pwd

              Current default target: /SYS/MB

               

               

              -> show -d properties

                /SYS/MB

                  Properties:

                      type = Motherboard

                      ipmi_name = /MB

                      fru_name = MB

                      fru_description = T5140/T5240,MB,VF1.3,8C,1.6G

                      fru_manufacturer = Mitac International

                      fru_version = 01_50

                      fru_part_number = 5407908

                      fru_serial_number = 0328MSL-0926950030

                      fault_state = OK

                      clear_fault_action = (none)

               

               

              -> show -d targets

               

              /SYS/MB

                  Targets:

                      RISER0

                      RISER1

                      RISER2

                      SEEPROM

                      SCC_NVRAM

                      GBE

                      PCI-SWITCH0

                      PCI-SWITCH1

                      PCIE-IO

                      SASHBA

                      T_AMB

                      CMP0

                      CMP1

                      V_+3V3_STBY

                      V_+3V3_MAIN

                      V_+12V0_MAIN

                      V_VDDIO

                      V_VCOREL

                      V_VCORER

                      V_+1V5_IO

                      V_VMEML

                      V_VMEMR

                      V_VBAT

                      V_VCOREL_POK

                      V_VCORER_POK

                      VMEML_POK

                      VMEMR_POK

                      I_USB0

                      I_USB1

               

              Or use simply the long paths:

               

              -> show -d properties /SYS/MB

               

               

              So you can check on Disk status :

               

              -> show -t /SYS type=="Hard Disk" fault_state

              Target              | Property               | Value

              --------------------+------------------------+---------------------------------

              /SYS/HDD0           | fault_state            | OK

              /SYS/HDD1           | fault_state            | OK

              /SYS/HDD2           | fault_state            | OK

              /SYS/HDD3           | fault_state            | OK

              /SYS/HDD4           | fault_state            | OK

              /SYS/HDD5           | fault_state            | OK

              /SYS/HDD6           | fault_state            | OK

              /SYS/HDD7           | fault_state            | OK

               

               

              RAID information are only available on Solaris side:

              "Onboard RAID - How to get disk and controller details on model and firmware at Solaris level (Doc ID 1520814.1)"

               

               

              CPU's, what does it mean, there are CORES and THREADS/CORE, what you define as a CPU ? The slot unit ?

               

               

              -> show -t /SYS/MB type=="Host Processor"

              Target              | Property               | Value

              --------------------+------------------------+---------------------------------

              /SYS/MB/CMP0        | type                   | Host Processor

               

              -> show -t /SYS/MB type=="CPU Core"

              Target              | Property               | Value

              --------------------+------------------------+---------------------------------

              /SYS/MB/CMP0/CORE0  | type                   | CPU Core

              /SYS/MB/CMP0/CORE1  | type                   | CPU Core

              /SYS/MB/CMP0/CORE2  | type                   | CPU Core

              /SYS/MB/CMP0/CORE3  | type                   | CPU Core

              /SYS/MB/CMP0/CORE4  | type                   | CPU Core

              /SYS/MB/CMP0/CORE5  | type                   | CPU Core

              /SYS/MB/CMP0/CORE6  | type                   | CPU Core

              /SYS/MB/CMP0/CORE7  | type                   | CPU Core

              /SYS/MB/CMP1/CORE0  | type                   | CPU Core

              /SYS/MB/CMP1/CORE1  | type                   | CPU Core

              /SYS/MB/CMP1/CORE2  | type                   | CPU Core

              /SYS/MB/CMP1/CORE3  | type                   | CPU Core

              /SYS/MB/CMP1/CORE4  | type                   | CPU Core

              /SYS/MB/CMP1/CORE5  | type                   | CPU Core

              /SYS/MB/CMP1/CORE6  | type                   | CPU Core

              /SYS/MB/CMP1/CORE7  | type                   | CPU Core

               

              And beside the type you can visualize several other properties, which vary over available targets

               

              It really depends what you need in terms of information !?  .. e.g. from DIMMs, Type ? Size ? Count ? Vendor Name ? Status ?

               

               

              -> show -t /SYS type==DIMM fru_name fault_state

              Target              | Property               | Value

              --------------------+------------------------+---------------------------------

              /SYS/MB/CMP0/BR0/   | fru_name               | 4096MB DDR2 SDRAM FB-DIMM 333

              CH0/D0             |                        | (PC2 2600)

              /SYS/MB/CMP0/BR0/   | fault_state            | OK

              CH0/D0             |                        |

              /SYS/MB/CMP0/BR0/   | fru_name               | 4096MB DDR2 SDRAM FB-DIMM 333

              CH0/D1             |                        | (PC2 2600)

              /SYS/MB/CMP0/BR0/   | fault_state            | OK

               

              [  snip  ]

               

              Or PCI slots:

               

              -> show -t /SYS/MB type==slot fault_state

              Target              | Property               | Value

              --------------------+------------------------+---------------------------------

              /SYS/MB/RISER0/     | fault_state            | OK

              PCIE0              |                        |

              /SYS/MB/RISER0/     | fault_state            | OK

              PCIE3              |                        |

              /SYS/MB/RISER1/     | fault_state            | OK

              PCIE1              |                        |

              /SYS/MB/RISER1/     | fault_state            | OK

              PCIE4              |                        |

              /SYS/MB/RISER2/     | fault_state            | OK

              PCIE2              |                        |

              /SYS/MB/RISER2/     | fault_state            | OK

              PCIE5              |                        |

               

               

               

              If you don't know the target and/properties you can visualize them:

               

              All targets, with their sub-targets:

              -> show -l all -d targets

              All properties per target:

              -> show -l all -d properties

                Actually i am working in a refurbished company and we should test sun units before put them in the inventory .I have experience with HP ,IBM ,Dell and cisco servers but with SUN system i am totally new .  So i am going to test them again next week .

                  It won't help in your case, but for others, there is a web interface that can be used to gather information.  I personally find the CLI much easier to use, but I know others have preferred the "web gui."

                    can anyone please let me know why with Sparc T4-4 i can see the targets below  in ilom:

                    SP/SYS/Memory

                    SP/SYS/Processors

                     

                    while not in Sparc T3-1?

                     

                    Thanks

                      Easy answer would be, they're different gen servers, as well as different sized server.  But I've seen that the ILOM revs (HW and FW) can also make a difference.
