Dual Core Support in Instant Capacity Systems

  Table of Contents


With dual core processing, each cell board has four sockets and each socket accepts a CPU module that contains two processor cores. You can upgrade an Instant Capacity Superdome system to a dual core system by replacing the cell boards and processors. Contact your HP service representative for details on upgrading to dual core processors.

The Instant Capacity software supports dual core processors. The software treats each core individually and allows the following actions at the core level:

  • Applying Right to Use (RTU) codewords

  • Activating and deactivating

  • Load balancing across partitions

  • Configuring in virtual partitions
