Key features

The IBM System x3400 M3 has the following features.

Performance

The x3400 M3 offers numerous features to boost performance and reduce costs:
  • Up to two 6-core Intel Xeon 5600 series processors offering superior performance. Xeon 5600 series processors offer up to 54% better performance than the previous generation 5500 series processors (workload dependent).
  • 16 DIMMs of registered 1333 MHz DDR3 ECC memory provide speed, high availability, and a memory capacity of up to 128 GB.
  • High-performance 6 Gbps SAS RAID controllers and 15K RPM 6 Gbps SAS disk drives in a variety of capacities to suit your local storage requirements.
  • The use of solid-state drives (SSDs) instead of or along with traditional spinning drives (HDDs) can significantly improve I/O performance. An SSD can support 20,000 I/O operations per second (IOPS) whereas a typical HDD handles fewer than 500 IOPS.

Flexibility and scalability

The x3400 M3 has the ability to grow with your application requirements with these features:
  • A choice of 4-core or 6-core processors with clock rates from 1.6 GHz to 3.6 GHz.
  • 16 DIMM sockets allowing memory expansion of up to 128 GB.
  • Up to two redundant hot-swap 920 W AC power supplies.
  • Seven USB 2.0 ports available - two front, four rear, and one internal for an embedded hypervisor.
  • The tower chassis can be converted to a 5U rack-mount chassis with the optional tower-to-rack conversion kit.
  • Storage bay flexibility: Up to 16 hot-swap 2.5" drive bays for SAS or SATA HDDs, or solid-state drives (intermixing supported) in addition to a bay for an internal optical drive.
  • Direct-attach SAS storage with the EXP2512, EXP2524, and EXP3000 storage enclosures is supported. IBM System Storage servers, including network-attached storage (NAS), and iSCSI or Fibre Channel-attached storage, can also be attached.
  • Up to seven PCI Express (PCIe) 2.0 I/O slots for increased network or storage connectivity. Optional PCI-X slots for specialized adapters.

Manageability and security

Powerful systems management features simplify local and remote management of the x3400 M3:
  • The x3400 M3 includes an Integrated Management Module (IMM) to monitor server availability, perform Predictive Failure Analysis, and trigger IBM Systems Director alerts.
  • An optional Virtual Media Key enables additional systems management capabilities, including web-based out-of-band remote control (keyboard video and mouse), remote optical drive support, Windows “blue screen” error capture, and support for LDAP and SSL protocols.
  • Text Console Redirection support allows the administrator to remotely view x3500 M3 text messages over Serial or LAN connections.
  • Integrated industry-standard Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) next-generation BIOS. New capabilities include:
    • Human readable event logs — no more beep codes.
    • Complete out-of-band coverage by the Advance Settings Utility to simplify remote setup.
    • A complete setup solution, allowing adapter configuration functions to be moved into UEFI.
  • Integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 support.
  • Industry-standard AES NI support for faster, stronger encryption.
  • Integrated IPMI 2.0 support alerts IBM Systems Director to anomalous environmental factors, such as voltage and thermal conditions. It also supports highly secure remote power control using data encryption.
  • IBM Systems Director is available for proactive systems management. IBM Systems Director comes with a portfolio of tools, including IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager, IBM Service and Support Manager, and others. IBM Systems Director also offers extended systems management tools for additional server management and increased availability. When a problem is encountered, IBM Systems Director can issue administrator alerts via email, pager, and other methods.
  • IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager provides advanced power management features with actual real-time energy monitoring, reporting, and capping features.

Availability and serviceability

The System x3400 M3 provides many features to simplify serviceability and increase system uptime:
  • The server offer Chipkill ECC memory protection (when using x4 DIMMs). Chipkill memory is up to 16 times better than standard ECC memory at correcting memory errors. This can help reduce downtime caused by memory errors.
  • The server offers memory mirroring for redundancy in the event of a non-correctable memory failure.
  • The server supports up to two redundant hot-swap 920 W AC power supplies.
  • Toolless cover removal provides easy access to upgrades and serviceable parts, such as HDDs and memory. Similarly, the Virtual Media Key and the ServeRAID controller can be installed and replaced without tools. This means less time (and therefore less money) spent servicing the x3400 M3.
  • The server offers hot-swap and redundant fan modules and power supplies and hot-swap disk drives (redundant when implemented in conjuction with a RAID controller). These features mean greater system uptime.
  • Toolless slides ship with the server, together with a cable management arm (CMA), that allows the rack server to easily slide into place.
  • A light path diagnostics panel and individual light path LEDs quickly lead the technician to failed (or failing) components. This simplifies servicing, speeds up problem resolution, and helps improve system availability.
  • Solid-state drives (SSDs) offer significantly better reliability than traditional mechanical HDDs for greater uptime.
  • The three-year (parts and labor) limited onsite warranty provides peace of mind and greater investment protection than a one-year warranty does.

Energy efficiency

The System x3400 M3 has an energy-efficient design with features including the following:
  • Low-voltage processors draw less energy and produce less waste heat than high-voltage processors, thus helping to reduce data center energy costs. Available 4-core Xeon 5600 series processors use only 40 W and 6-core processors consume as little as 60 W.
  • Optional solid-state drives (SSDs) use only 2 W of power per drive, compared to 9 - 10 W for 2.5-inch HDDs. This is as much as 80% less power than a 2.5-inch HDD would use, with a corresponding reduction in heat output that further improves the overall bottom line.
  • Support for 1.35 V low-voltage DDR3 memory DIMMs that consume 20% less energy.
  • Energy-efficient components, including low-voltage transistors and voltage regulator modules, and power supplies that are up to 90% efficient.
  • The server uses hexagonal ventilation holes in the chassis. Hexagonal holes can be grouped more densely than round holes, providing more efficient airflow through the system chassis. This ultimately results in reduced operational costs.

Memory options

IBM DDR3 memory is compatibility tested and tuned for optimal System x performance and throughput. IBM memory specifications are integrated into the light path diagnostics for immediate system performance feedback and optimum system uptime. From a service and support standpoint, IBM memory automatically assumes the IBM system warranty, and IBM provides service and support worldwide.

The IBM System x3400 M3 supports DDR3 memory. The server supports up to eight DIMMs when one processor is installed and up to 16 DIMMs when two processors are installed. However, the maximum number of DIMMs is limited by the number of ranks in the DIMMs:
  • RDIMMs
    • Up to 16 single-rank RDIMMs for a maximum of 64 GB (16x 4 GB)
    • Up to 16 dual-rank RDIMMs for a maximum of 128 GB (16x 8 GB)
  • UDIMMs
    • Up to 16 single-rank UDIMMs for a maximum of 16 GB (16x 1 GB)
    • Up to 16 dual-rank UDIMMs for a maximum of 64 GB (16x 4 GB)

Each CPU has three memory channels, two of which contain three DIMMs per channel and the third contains two DIMMs. RDIMMs can be populated up to three per channel. However, UDIMMs can only be populated two DIMMs per channel. That is, you can have up to 16 RDIMMs installed in the server, but only up to 12 UDIMMs. Mixing UDIMMs and RDIMMs is not supported.

Maximum memory speed is limited by memory speed supported by the specific CPU (that is, if the CPU only supports 1066 MHz, then the memory speed cannot exceed 1066 MHz in any case) and by the number and type of DIMMs installed (whatever is lower), as follows:
  • Intel Xeon 5600 series processors:
    • 1333 MHz when one or two single-rank or dual-rank RDIMMs per channel are installed or one UDIMM per channel is installed
    • 1066 MHz when two UDIMMs per channel are installed
    • 800 MHz when three single-rank or dual-rank RDIMMs per channel are installed
  • Quad-core Intel Xeon 5500 series processors:
    • 1333 MHz when one single-rank or dual-rank RDIMM per channel is installed or one UDIMM per channel is installed
    • 1066 MHz when two single-rank or dual-rank RDIMMs per channel are installed, or two UDIMMs per channel are installed
    • 800 MHz when three single-rank or dual-rank RDIMMs per channel are installed
  • Dual-core Intel Xeon 5500 series processors only support memory speed at 800 MHz.


The server supports both 1.5 V and 1.35 V DIMMs. Mixing 1.5 V and 1.35 V DIMMs in the same server is supported for Intel Xeon 5600 series processor-based systems. In such a case, all DIMMs operate at 1.5 V. Intel Xeon 5500 series processor-based systems do not support 1.35 V DIMMs.

The following memory protection technologies are supported:
  • ECC
  • ChipKill (for x4-based RDIMMs)
  • Memory mirroring
  • Memory sparing

If memory mirroring is used, then DIMMs must be installed in pairs (a minimum of one pair per CPU), and both DIMMs in a pair must be identical in type and size. If memory sparing is used, then DIMMs must be installed in sets of three, and all DIMMs in the same set must be identical in type and size. Memory sparing is only supported for Intel Xeon 5600 series processor-based systems.

PCIe SSD adapters

The server does not support High IOPS SSD adapters.

Power supplies

The server supports either one 670 W AC fixed power supply or up to two 920 W AC hot-swap redundant power supplies, providing N+N redundancy. Standard models come with one power supply, either fixed or hot-swap, depending on the model as listed in Table 2. For models with one 920 W AC hot-swap redundant power supply, you can add a second power supply by ordering the option listed in the following table.

Note: If the server has a 670 W fixed power supply installed, then only up to four 3.5-inch drives can be installed or up to eight 2.5-inch drives can be installed.

Table 13. Power supplies
Part number Feature code Description Maximum supported
44X0381 5056 IBM Redundant Power Supply for x3400/3500 2 (One power supply comes
standard with every model.)

The power supply ships without a line cord. A line cord must be ordered separately (country-specific).

Note: Power supply option 44X0381 is for both the x3400 M3 and the x3500 M3. The power supply option includes three fans however these fans are only for use with the x3500 M3. They are not used in the x3400 M3. (The x3400 M3 includes physical space for the fans but there is no electrical connection for the fans in the x3400 M3.)

Remote management

The server contains IBM Integrated Management Module (IMM), which provides advanced service-processor control, monitoring, and an alerting function. If an environmental condition exceeds a threshold or if a system component fails, the IMM lights LEDs to help you diagnose the problem, records the error in the event log, and alerts you to the problem. Optionally, the IMM also provides a virtual presence capability for remote server management capabilities.

The IMM provides remote server management through industry-standard interfaces:
  • Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) Version 2.0
  • Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Version 3
  • Common Information Model (CIM)
  • Web browser

The optional virtual media key is required to enable the remote presence and blue-screen capture features. The remote presence feature provides the following functions:
  • Remotely viewing video with graphics resolutions up to 1280x1024 at 75 Hz, regardless of the system state
  • Remotely accessing the server using the keyboard and mouse from a remote client
  • Mapping the CD or DVD drive, diskette drive, and USB flash drive on a remote client, and mapping ISO and diskette image files as virtual drives that are available for use by the server
  • Uploading a diskette image to the IMM memory and mapping it to the server as a virtual drive

The blue-screen capture feature captures the video display contents before the IMM restarts the server when the IMM detects an operating system hang condition. A system administrator can use the blue-screen capture to assist in determining the cause of the hang condition. The following table lists the remote management option.
