Memory options

The System x3500 M5 supports TruDDR4 memory. TruDDR Memory uses the highest quality components that are sourced from Tier 1 DRAM suppliers and only memory that meets our strict requirements is selected. It is compatibility tested and tuned on every System x server to maximize performance and reliability. TruDDR4 Memory has a unique signature programmed into the DIMM that enables System x servers to verify whether the installed memory is qualified or supported. Because TruDDR4 Memory is authenticated, certain extended memory performance features can be enabled to extend performance over industry standards. From a service and support standpoint, System x memory automatically assumes the system's warranty, and service and support provided worldwide.

The following table lists the available memory options for the x3500 M5 server.

The server supports up to 12 DIMMs when one processor is installed and up to 24 DIMMs when two processors are installed. Each processor has four memory channels; there are three DIMMs per channel.

The following rules apply when the memory configuration is selected:

  • The server supports RDIMMs and LRDIMMs.
  • Mixing types of memory (RDIMMs and LRDIMMs) is not supported.
  • The maximum quantity of DIMMs that can be installed in the server depends on the number of processors.
  • All DIMMs in the server operate at the same speed, which is determined as the lowest value of the following factors:
    • Memory speed that is supported by the specific processor.
    • Lowest of maximum operating speeds for selected memory configuration that depends on quantity of DIMMs per channel, as shown under "Maximum operating speed" section in the following table.

The following memory protection technologies are supported:

  • ECC
  • Chipkill (for x4-based memory DIMMs)
  • Memory mirroring
  • Memory rank sparing

Chipkill works only in independent channel mode (the default is operational mode) and supports only x4-based memory DIMMs.

If memory mirroring is used, DIMMs must be installed in pairs (a minimum of one pair per each processor). Both DIMMs in a pair must be identical in type and size.

If memory rank sparing is used, a minimum of one quad-rank LRDIMM or two single-rank or dual-rank RDIMMs must be installed per populated channel (the DIMMs do not need to be identical). In rank sparing mode, one rank of a DIMM in each populated channel is reserved as spare memory. The size of a rank varies, depending on the DIMMs installed.

Chipkill, memory mirroring, and memory rank sparing modes are mutually exclusive. Only one operational memory mode can be enabled on a server, and it is a system-wide setting.

The following table shows the characteristics of the supported DIMMs. Tables cells that are highlighted with a gray background indicate when the number of DIMMs per channel still allows the DIMMs to operate at a rated speed.

Integrated virtualization

The server supports the VMware vSphere (ESXi) hypervisor on one or two SD cards with the optional SD Media Adapter for System x. This adapter is in a dedicated connector on the system board.

106.1450.jpg
Figure 13. SD Media Adapter with one SD Card installed

When only one SD card is installed in the adapter, you can create up to 16 volumes, each of which is presented to UEFI as a bootable device. When two SD Media cards are inserted, volumes can be mirrored (RAID 1) across both cards, up to a total of eight mirrored volumes. The use of mirrored volumes improves system availability because the server remains operational, even if one SD card fails. The RAID functionality is handled internally by the SD Media Adapter.

The following table shows the available options. The table also indicates whether the option includes the SD Media RAID Adapter and how many SD cards are included.

Systems management

The server contains IMM2.1, 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 IMM2.1 lights LEDs to help you diagnose the problem, records the error in the event log, and alerts you to the problem. Optionally, the IMM2.1 also provides a virtual presence capability for remote server management capabilities.

The IMM provides remote server management through the following 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 Integrated Management Module Advanced Upgrade is required for enabling remote presence and blue-screen capture features. The remote presence feature provides the following functions:

  • Remotely viewing video with graphics resolutions up to 1600x1200 at 75 Hz with up to 23 bits per pixel colors, regardless of the system state
  • Remotely accessing the server by 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.
