Abstract

The invention provides a monitoring and managing method based on physical multi-partition computer architecture. In the absence of partition configuration, a system only is only provided with a baseboard management controller (BMC) which works normally to achieve functions of hardware monitoring, keyboard-video-mouse switching and Virtual Media; when the system is divided into a plurality of independent multi-processor systems, each system is provided with one BMC; one of the BMCs is a master BMC which is used for finishing hardware parameter reading, switching-on and switching-off control and fan control of each partition system; and other BMCs are slave BMCs which can only realize the switching-on and switching-off control and fan control of the partitions as well as read the hardware parameters of the partitions by sending intelligent platform management interface (IPMI) commands to the master BMC through an IPMB (intelligent platform management bus).

Description

A kind of method for managing and monitoring based on physics multi partition Computer Architecture

 

Technical field

The present invention relates to a kind of Computer Applied Technology field, specifically a kind of method for managing and monitoring based on physics multi partition Computer Architecture.

Background technology

Large-scale multiprocessor servers system has resources such as more processor, internal memory, storage, IO usually, has powerful computing ability, but often makes have more than is needed so much resource in actual applications, has caused certain system resource waste.If under the little situation of resources requirement, if large computer system can be divided into a plurality of stand alone computer systems, move a plurality of different application respectively, variation along with business, also a plurality of stand alone computer systems can be reconfigured adjustment, this will improve the service efficiency and the availability of system undoubtedly greatly.

Monitoring management system in the server is a system independently, to comprise the monitoring of voltage, temperature, rotation speed of the fan in advance in the system key hardware parameter, and realize remote on-off, KVM, virtual medium capability, and can participate in the sequential control etc. of total system.When total system being cut apart or reconfigure adjustment, its monitoring management system also needs to cut apart thereupon or reconfigure.

Summary of the invention

The purpose of this invention is to provide a kind of method for managing and monitoring based on physics multi partition Computer Architecture

The objective of the invention is to realize in the following manner, when system does not have subregion and is provided with, system has only a baseboard management controller BMC operate as normal to finish to comprise hardware monitoring, KVM, the function of Virtual Media, when system is divided into a plurality of independently multicomputer system, all there is a baseboard management controller BMC in each system, one of them is main substrate Management Controller BMC, the hardware parameter of each partition system, switching on and shutting down control, fan control all has main substrate Management Controller BMC to finish, other baseboard management controllers BMC is from baseboard management controller BMC, can not directly realize place partition switch machine control and fan control from baseboard management controller BMC, can not directly read the hardware parameter of place subregion, must order to main substrate Management Controller BMC transmission IPMI by the IPMB bus and realize above function.

No matter whether system carries out the subregion setting, and the hardware parameter of system reads, switching on and shutting down control all has main substrate Management Controller BMC to finish.

System carries out after subregion is provided with, a plurality of baseboard management controller BMC always have only a main substrate Management Controller BMC, have only by the IPMB bus to main substrate Management Controller BMC transmission IPMI order from baseboard management controller BMC, just can obtain the hardware parameter of place system, carry out switching on and shutting down control and fan control.

Excellent effect of the present invention is: after system partitioning was provided with, each baseboard management controller BMC can both lead to

-1-

Crossing main substrate Management Controller BMC gets access to hardware parameter in any subregion, conveniently carries out unified management.

Description of drawings

Monitoring management system Organization Chart when Fig. 1 is the single system operation;

Fig. 2 is the management monitoring system Organization Chart when being divided into several autonomous system;

Fig. 3 is that master/slave baseboard management controller BMC is provided with the process flow diagram of finishing difference in functionality according to different GPIO.

Fig. 4 is master/slave baseboard management controller BMC request responding process figure.

Embodiment

Explain below with reference to Figure of description the method for managing and monitoring based on physics multi partition Computer Architecture of the present invention being done.

⑴ system does not carry out subregion, and when moving as single system, its monitoring management system as shown in Figure 1.

System has only a baseboard management controller BMC operate as normal, can get access to key hardware parameters such as voltage, temperature by Sensor, can carry out fan, switching on and shutting down control, and realizes KVM, virtual medium capability by USB.

⑵ system carries out the subregion setting, and when being divided into several autonomous system, its management monitoring system is illustrated in fig. 2 shown below;

Main substrate Management Controller BMC is by the I2C bus, the hardware parameter of being responsible for all subregions reads, fan control, switching on and shutting down control, can only send the IPMI order to main BMC by the IPMB bus from baseboard management controller BMC, can carry out just that related data reads and control operation.This designs simplification the monitor network and the management framework of whole computing machine, make monitoring management system more reliable and more stable.

⑶ main substrate Management Controller BMC and all are formed network from baseboard management controller baseboard management controller BMC by IPMB, make each baseboard management controller BMC can get access to the hardware information of all subregions, thereby, carry out co-ordination according to monitor state situations different between the subregion.

Embodiment

⑴ during principle design, whole computer system comprises the sensor of all subregions, and switching on and shutting down control module, fan control unit all are connected to main substrate Management Controller BMC by I2C.

⑵ during principle design, all are connected with main substrate Management Controller BMC by IPMB from baseboard management controller BMC, and each baseboard management controller BMC all is connected with the USB interface of the ICH of place subregion.All baseboard management controller BMC reserve 3 GPIO and as the principal and subordinate PIN are set, and are high/low by GPIO is put, and carry out principal and subordinate's setting, and 8 subregions of maximum realization are as shown in the table:

The GPIO configuration Master/slave BMC 000 Main BMC 001 From BMC1 010 From BMC2 011 From BMC3 100 From BMC4 101 From BMC5 110 From BMC6 111 From BMC7

⑶ during Firmware design, according to the setting of GPIO PIN, master/slave baseboard management controller BMC is provided with according to different GPIO and finishes different functions, as shown in Figure 3.

Master/slave baseboard management controller BMC Firmware need realize the request of IPMB agreement respectively and reply that main BMC IPMB address setting is 0x00.Order sensor data, the daily record of obtaining the place subregion, gauge tap machine state from subregion by sending IPMB.

Except that the described technical characterictic of instructions, be the known technology of those skilled in the art.
