Server Management Network for System with Maximum 108 Nodes, 2 BYNET Cabinets
- This configuration is built on the cabinet and collective topology defined in Collectives.
- The topology shown in the illustration above is based on a 2750 system with 14 cabinets in a 4-node configuration with two cliques per cabinet. The topology may differ depending on the number of cabinets in the system. The number of cabinets is based on two 4-node cliques per cabinet for a total of eight nodes per cabinet in 14 cabinets.
- One or more of the processing/storage cabinets shown above may be in a single collective, depending on system configuration. The collective may include Platform Framework Cabinets (not shown).
- The BYNET V5
cabinet contains one primary server management Ethernet switch and one secondary server management Ethernet switch.Although a cabinet number is not shown for the BYNET V5 cabinet, the cabinet number must be unique in the system.
- Separate primary and secondary paths ensure network redundancy.
- The primary and secondary networks are configured as follows:
- The primary Ethernet switch in the BYNET V5 cabinet acts as the gathering switch for the primary switches in cabinets 1-14.
- The secondary Ethernet switch in the BYNET V5 cabinet acts as the gathering switch for the secondary switches in cabinets 1-14.
- For port-to-port cabling, see the appropriate Hardware Installation Guide.
