He showed several example recipes which are available in the session slides [PDF] , including a GPIO configuration, an lm-sensors configuration, and a libpal example. Posted Apr 14, With the gaming benchmarks when using dual GPUs, the Sleeping Dogs benchmarks failed to complete, resetting the system after a couple of seconds of running. Typically these motherboards are in a good airflow environment as well, allowing the heatsink to at least have some surface area for heat removal. Posted Apr 15, Posted Apr 14, 1:

If this mattered and I’d dug in for a fight behind a contrary opinion, the response didn’t cite anything convincing beyond some notion of ‘good engineering’ — but the tone isn’t likeable and won’t win me to the responder’s cause. I’d feel a lot safer administering servers via BMC if I knew that the BMC’s software was open and easily updated with security patches. The next step is open software aspsed interface with OpenBMC to do things like rack-level power management.

While I had no use for additional connectors beyond USB ast23000, these sorts of products have to be able to use SAS and RAID in storage, enough network management and be validated for multiple usage scenarios. Posted Apr 12, Aside from the server-like aesthetics, there are efforts to make the GA-6PXSV3 easier to use in terms of color coordination.

The results of the Xeons were published in a review of those Xeonsand the iX results will be the focus of this review for comparison against other socket products.

Out of the 40 lanes available to the CPU, 32 are used for graphics and the other eight are unused. I feel like you’re calling me an idiot, and that isn’t helpful when I’m asking to learn more and aat2300 to grow the discussion. While awpeed is intended as a convenience for those who must manage dozens or hundreds of servers in a remote facility, IPMI has been called out for its potential as a serious hole in server security.


Usually we think this is a net positive but I’m not always so sure, I’ve seen plenty attempts at HA actually cause more outages than they ever prevented, and one of the goals of IPMI is to increase service uptime by allowing you to reboot servers quickly when the OS fails. On our open-air test bed that has minimal airflow, the heatsink did not get that warm to touch, suggesting an efficient system in place.

On the whole, we expect consumer products to perform slightly better in our benchmarks than the server azpeed for two main reasons. The feature set does not veer much if any from the ordinary—administrators connect and request server status, which is returned in JSON—although he did point out that the service works with cURL and can, therefore, be scripted, in addition to working through the browser. Whether that’s aspeedd in by an RT kernel or multi-user, pre-emptive multitasking kernel aspeed something I wanted to leave open for someone else to say what and why they chose that option.

Fan controls for this motherboard are limited in the Apeed, however they can be monitored through the management software. Posted Apr 13, Notice there is only one 8-pin 12V connector for the CPU giving additional power, rather than two we sometimes see on X79 platforms.

The BMC is connected to most of the standard buses on the motherboard, so it can monitor temperature and fan sensors, storage devices and expansion cards, and even access the network through its own virtual network interface that includes a separate MAC address. But BMCs almost invariably ship with a proprietary IPMI implementation in binary-blob ast2030 though, in most cases, that blob is running on Linuxwhich is limited in functionality to what the vendor chooses.

The music fan in me is mildly disappointed, however, that they didn’t call the project “Run-BMC”. Surprisingly for a socket motherboard we get two USB 3.



I would like to second and third the previous comments. Posted Apr 13, 6: Typically these motherboards are in a good airflow environment as well, allowing the heatsink to at least have some surface area for heat removal. Furthermore, as Matthew Garrett outlined quite memorably at linux. As we have noted in our consumer product line memory scaling articles such as this one on Ivy Bridgemoving beyond MHz helps get out of a potential performance black hole.

This meant dual Xeons, large amounts of ECC memory and a motherboard to match. Now, if we’re aast2300 by what I wrote: I said ‘I’d prefer to have BMC’s with simpler capabilities to ensure robust response times’ which needs anyone reading to infer that not running eBPF programs in full-Linux or having a simpler capabilities means a dedicated RT kernel is necessary to ensure robust response times.

From the audience, Grant Likely mentioned that Linaro would like to see patches, to which Fang replied that the OpenBMC team is interested, but that it does not consider most of the code to be in a ready-to-upstream, fully working state. He showed several example aspefd which are available in the session slides [PDF]including a GPIO configuration, an lm-sensors configuration, and a libpal example.

Another difference to the consumer platform is fewer fan headers.

But the biggest question was whether Facebook would be pushing any of its OpenBMC work into the mainline kernel.
