HP World 2003 Solutions and Technology Conference & Expo

system management backup
System Management - Backup
  • New Qualifiers for the BACKUP utility
    • /FILES_SELECTED=filename
      • Allows the use of a file to contain a list of files to be selected when a save set is restored.
      • This can be used in place of the /SELECT qualifier
    • /INPUT_FILES=filename
      • Allows the use of a file to contain a list of files to be specified for a BACKUP operation
    • /HEADER_ONLY=(keyword)
      • Can be used to specify that only the header of shelved or preshelved files are saved in a backup
      • Avoids unshelving shelved files which is the default behavior

HP World 2003 Solutions and Technology Conference & Expo

system and i o performance fastpath
System and I/O PerformanceFastpath
  • LAN Drivers
    • Move off of IOLOCK8 to LAN device specific spinlocks
    • Allow device interrupts to CPUs other than the primary
  • PEdriver
    • Move off of IOLOCK8 to PE specific spinlocks
    • Allow a specific CPU to be chosen for PEdriver processing
    • Allows PEDRIVER to process cluster communications on a single CPU
    • Reduces CPU cost due to streamlined codepath also for served block data
  • Fastpath for Smart Array 5300
    • Backplane RAID controller
    • Offload IOLOCK8 spinlock, allows CPU selection

HP World 2003 Solutions and Technology Conference & Expo

system and i o performance wsmax and balsetcnt
System and I/O PerformanceWSMAX and BALSETCNT
  • Large systems often had to make compromises between large working sets or a large number of processes in memory
  • If you wanted a large BALSETCNT, you often had to reduce WSMAX or visa versa
    • These trade offs could result in either increased swapping activity if BALSETCNT was too low or increased paging activity if WSMAX was too low
  • These restrictions have been removed
  • The BALSETCNT parameter has also become dynamic

HP World 2003 Solutions and Technology Conference & Expo

system and i o performance working set in s2 space
System and I/O PerformanceWorking Set in S2 Space
  • Remove WSMAX and BALSETCNT restrictions
  • Currently balance slots live in S0S1 space
    • S0S1 is a shared 32 bit space of 2GB in size
    • Balance Slot size is heavily based on WSMAX
    • Some customers today must trade-off large number of resident processes (BALSETCNT) vs. large working set (WSMAX)
  • We are breaking balance slots into a balance slot and working set slot
    • The Working Set List is the major part of a Balance Slot
    • The working set slot will exist in S2 space

HP World 2003 Solutions and Technology Conference & Expo

system and i o performance smp improvements
System and I/O PerformanceSMP Improvements
  • SMP systems synchronize various code with spinlocks
  • Only a single CPU can hold a specific spinlock and thus operations that use the same spinlock are serialized
  • A commonly used spinlock is the SCHED spinlock
  • A high frequency operation to lookup a process has been improved to use a “process specific” spinlock for the necessary synchronization
  • In addition, the $HIBER and $WAKE system services have been improved to reduce the usage of the SCHED spinlock
    • In some cases – SCHED is no longer required at all

HP World 2003 Solutions and Technology Conference & Expo

system and i o performance sched spinlock
System and I/O PerformanceSCHED spinlock
  • NAM_TO_PCB is heavy contributor to SCHED spinlock
    • Use PCB spinlock
    • Process control system services (prcnam argument)
  • $HIBER and $WAKE
    • No need for SCHED spinlock to wake current process
    • PCB$V_WAKEPEN bit in PCB$L_STS synchronized under SCHED spinlock
    • new PCB$V_WAKEPEN bit moved to PCB$L_STS3
    • waking up current process from within AST saves 2 SCHED acquire/release
    • waking up target process not current on any CPU saves 1 SCHED acquire/release
    • Helps multi-threaded processes (i.e. Java apps and friends

HP World 2003 Solutions and Technology Conference & Expo

system and i o performance extended file cache xfc
System and I/O PerformanceeXtended File Cache (XFC)
  • Performance boosts for small I/Os
  • Support for read ahead hint
  • Reclaim unused and closed files
  • Fixed misaligned fields in context block
  • Usability and debugging improvements
  • Display files by volume instead of random order (SDA)
  • Miscellaneous XFC SDA changes to help troubleshoot
  • More efficient use of memory
  • More useful and readable displays

HP World 2003 Solutions and Technology Conference & Expo

system and i o performance
System and I/O Performance
  • Quieter MOUNTVERIFY messages
    • Reduces noise on the console and in operator log file
    • Multiple reasons for mount verifications in a Storage Area Network (SAN) environment
      • Path switch by another cluster node
      • Dropped Fibre Channel packets
      • Rezone of a SAN, which causes in-flight I/Os to be dropped
    • Those messages should not be flagged as errors
    • Filter real “attention needed” error messages
    • MVSUPMSG_NUM and MVSUPMSG_INTVL are new system parameters to control

HP World 2003 Solutions and Technology Conference & Expo

HP World 2003 Solutions and Technology Conference & Expo

shadowing
Shadowing
  • Dynamic Volume Expansion
    • Initialize device with a “maximum” size to which volume can expand
    • Allows a disk to be replaced with a larger one
  • Dissimilar Device Shadowing
    • Disks with different sizes and/or geometrical configurations can now be members in the same shadowset
