Solaris 11.2 (EECS 2.0.6.2.0) EoIB Administration

This blog post is brought to you by Leo Yuen of the Exalogic A-Team of Oracle Product Development.

With the release of EECS 2.0.6.2.0, customers can now run Solaris 11.2 on any model of Exalogic.  For existing Solaris customers, applying January 2015 PSU will upgrade their compute nodes to Solaris 11.2.  Among all the cool new features that come with Oracle’s latest enterprise-grade operating system, the dladm command has been updated with additional subcommands to manage Ethernet over InfiniBand (EoIB).

  • The "dladm show-ib" subcommand has been enhanced to display all InfiniBand switches information and the partition keys that a compute node belongs.

  • The "dladm create-eoib" subcommand is used to create eoib datalink object to match with the VNIC created on the switch.

The Exalogic Machine Owner’s Guide has been updated to reflect the above changes. Please refer to this document for instructions on how to setup VLAN-tagged VNICs and sample outputs of the new commands.

What is Oracle Exalogic?

Exalogic is a complete hardware and software platform for Enterprise applications delivered by Oracle as pre-assembled building blocks that are easy to buy, deploy and operate. 

Exalogic is an Engineered System: an assemblage of best-of-breed storage, compute, network, operating system and software products that are integrated, tested, tuned, optimized, delivered and supported by Oracle as a single factory-assembled unit.  Exalogic is not an appliance (because it allows flexible configuration and supports a wide range of applications), and it is not a blueprint (since implementation is done by Oracle, not by the customer).

Exalogic is designed to provide extreme high performance, reliability, ease-of-use and versatility without being a proprietary, closed system with high total cost of ownership and vendor lock-in.  Exalogic is everything enterprises love about both mainframes and open systems with none of the stuff they don't.  Exalogic is the realization of a new way of looking at the role of IT in the modern enterprise.

Exalogic supports CICS applications and COBOL (Oracle Tuxedo ART), Java SE and EE applications, the vast majority of the Oracle Fusion Middleware portfolio and standard Linux and Solaris applications, (all blazingly fast). 

Exalogic is the evolution of Oracle's Grid architecture, fulfilling the role of the Application Grid and complimenting Oracle Exadata, which fills the role of the Database Grid.  Taken together, these two products provide a complete "Private Cloud in a box" platform that is ideal for consolidation of mission-critical enterprise applications.
