AIX 7.2 Next Generation AIX Live Update Technology

Live update of AIX Kernel with no reboot or application outage

Interim fixes only

Can be applied on a running system either with the geninstall command or a NIM push from a NIM master or pull from a NIM client.

Live Migration

Project Requirements• Use existing maintenance model and administrative tools (NIM, emgr, installp)

• Start with live AIX kernel replacement for i-fixes, then in future extend to SPs and possibly TLs

• Long term goal is to provide non-disruptive updates for all of AIX (kernel, commands, and Libs)

AIX 7.2 Server Based Flash Caching

Server

SAN LUN LUN LUN

I/O APIs (File System, Device, etc.)

•Server caches SAN data in server attached flash

• (SSD, PCI-Card, SAS attached drawer, etc.)

•Caching is transparent, no required application changes

•Potential benefits are performance (more transactions, reduced response time), and/or improved scale and efficiency of SAN infrastructure via SAN off-load

•Provides storage agnostic caching solution integrated into AIX

•Supports virtualization features such as Live Partition Mobility

AIX 7.2 bos.net.tcp.client re-packaging

Goal: Reduce the need to patch unnecessary packages

– All the new split-out packages are installed by default.

– User may remove the individual (split-out) packages if no other packages require them.

– Once removed, those packages will not be installed/updated during future TL or SP updates.

– If customers have installp packages dependent on any of the three filesets, they will need to update the pre-req for AIX 7.2.

AIX 7.2 – Removal of Trusted Computing Base

Remove “Trusted Computing Base”

Rationale:

– Since AIX6.1, Trusted Execution (TE) is available and it's part of base AIX.

– TE is a more powerful and enhanced mechanism that overlaps some of the

TCB functionality and provides advance security policies to better control the

integrity of the system.

– Some key AIX features like WPAR is not supported with TCB

To disable Trusted Computing Base:

odmget -q attribute=TCB_STATE PdAt | sed 's/tcb_enabled/tcb_disabled/' | odmchange -o PdAt -q attribute=TCB_STATE

"odmget -q attribute=TCB_STATE PdAt"

Can be run before and after running above command to ensure that state is indeed had changed.

AIX 7.2 – Additional changes and enhancements

Other changes – CIFS Client – move it to the AIX Expansion Pack and provide the CIFS client

with "as-is" support only.

– JFS “Classic”: Remove as an install option; function would remain in AIX 7.2

and continue to be supported

– Include DSO features in base OS (bos.aso) – no separate LPP on AIX 7.2

LPPs not supported on AIX 7.2– Fast Connect

– Performance Toolbox

– PowerSC Trusted Surveyor not supported on AIX 7.2 as management server

OpenSSH is being added to the Bos Install menus

HTTPD support in NIM

AIX 7.2 NIM HTTP Option for Client ‘Pull’ Installation

Benefits of using http download access– Communication occurs over a single http port, easy firewall management

– Secure transactions use digest authentication methods (TLS v1.0/1.1/1.2)

– Actions are driven from the client's end (the install target), no host access required

How does it work?– The HTTP service is an embedded http service option in NIM.

– The service is dynamic, binds to a well-known port, and exists only when resources are being

remotely served.

– IPv4 and IPv6 environments are supported

What is supported?– NIM scripting customization

– Fileset install, bundle install

Limitations– No support for network boot

– No support for NIM BOS installation

– No support for Thin Server provisioning

LVMMirroring

• New LVM mirroring policy to direct all reads to a specific mirror

• Allows LVM mirror to be used as fast copy for improved read performance

• Off-loads primary storage resources

• Potentially improving the overall performance of the storage environment

Example commands

• mklv –y lv1 –c 2 –R 2 vg1 100

• chlv –R 1 lv1

• lslv lv1 (will show the preferred read copy)

Scenario- Shared Processor Pool with 4 cores of capacity

- Two VMs/LPARs, Uncapped, each with 1/10 core Entitled Capacity & 4 Virtual Processors

- Since there is no contention in the shared processor pool, all 8 VPs can run simultaneously

Before Firmware 840

- Uncapped weight was ONLY considered when there is contention on physical cores for CPU

- When each partition consumes 2.0 processor units, pool cap kicks in and suspends both

VMs until next dispatch window

Shared Processor Pools Weighting Enhancement

Prior to Firmware 840

Client ExpectationVM1 = EC 0.1 + 1/100 of capacity

VM2 = EC .01 + 99/100 of capacity

RealityVM1 = EC 0.1 + 1/2 of capacity

VM2 = EC .01 + 1/2 of capacity

After Firmware 840

-The hypervisor considers the weight even on an unloaded system resulting in the Production

workload (VM2) receiving the bulk (3.862) of processor capacity

After Firmware 840

Client ExpectationVM1 = EC 0.1 + 1/100 of capacity

VM2 = EC .01 + 99/100 of capacity

RealityVM1 = EC 0.1 + 1/99 of capacity

VM2 = EC .01 + 99/100 of capacity

Shared Storage Pool (2H2015)

Storage tiers - Quality of Service and Isolation

– Bind workloads to specific tiers

QoS: segregate workloads based on performance requirements (fast, medium, slow)

Redundancy: may choose to mirror some tiers, but not others

Isolation: LPARs 1-3 use storage from tierA, while LPARs 4-6 use tierB

– Live storage mobility (move workloads / virtual devices between tiers).

– 10 Tiers per storage pool

Grow LU

– Dynamically resize an LU, while the LPAR is active

What Can PowerVC do for you?

41

“A simple tool to quickly roll out LPARs/Virtual Machines on Power Systems”

Easily clone, resize, and relocate Power Systems virtual machines– Increase agility and execution to quickly respond to changing business requirements

– Complete virtual machine provisioning including Storage, Compute, and Network

– Policy-based placement of new and relocated virtual machines

– Remote restart of Virtual Machines from failed physical hosts (POWER8 only)

Quick and easy installation to get you up and running quickly– One button verification of stack integration and operational environment

– Simplify operations by not having to logon to HMC, VIOS, or storage to provision virtual machines

– Easy to use user interface and completely programmable API

Upward integration to cloud managers for private cloud management– Build on OpenStack APIs for automation and extensibility

– Integration to Cloud Manager with OpenStack for POWER (formerly SmartCloud Entry)

– Planned integration to IBM Cloud Orchestrator (formerly SmartCloud Orchestrator)
