Consolidated view of policies, guidelines, standards and procedures

The documentation referenced here describes the policies, guidelines, standards and procedures for insuring business continuity for the business function supported using IBM's Power 5 architecture. This architecture supports the ability to provide capacity on-demand and virtual I/O. The ability to micro-partition using pieces of a processor and dynamically allocate and deallocate memory is supported in this environment as well.

The Power 5 architecture provides the ability to define LPAR's and Virtual LPAR's. The difference between an LPAR and a Virtual LPAR is the implementation of the virtualization features. The Power 5 architecture allows the sytem administrator to configure logical partitions with dedicated resources such as processors, memory, and I/O adapters. The system administrator may also configure logical partitions utilizing shared processors, memory, and virtualized I/O adapters. The virtual I/O adapters are configured and made available to the LPAR's via the VIO server. The VIO server provides the ability to reduce the number of adapters required to support multiple LPAR's by virtualizing the hardware and allowing multiple LPAR's to share the same hardware I/O adapters.


Additional documents of interest

  • Migration from Power4 to Power5 using alt-disk-install
    This procedure is used to migrate from the existing IBM Power4 architecture running the EGATE Pre-Production environment on 6M2 machines, to the new IBM Power5 architecture running on the p590 machines. This procedure is required because EGATE requires AIX 5.2 and will not run on AIX 5.3. The lowest version of AIX that will run on the p590 Power5 architecture is AIX 5200-05 and EGATE is currently running on AIX 5200-02.
  • Calculating the size of a Virtual Processor
    This document describes the algorithms used to calculate the size of a virtual processor when using shared processors in an LPAR. The IBM documentation does not fully describe how the size of a virtual processor is determined, this document clarifies this process. A description of the HMC input fields for the processor tab is included.
