Sun xVM Ops Center at TACC
By Prasad Pai on Sep 28, 2008
In a previous blog, I talked about xVM Ops Center's early deployment at Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) in Austin, Texas. When we first started at TACC, late last year, we deployed xVM Ops Center 1.0 Early Access (EA) version. Recently, we upgraded to Ops Center 1.1.1 at TACC.
Ops Center monitors the 3936 four-socket blades of the TACC supercomputer known as Ranger. Physically, the compute blades occupy 82 racks that are spread across 6 aisles. Dongju Choi at TACC wrote a set of scripts that
extract sensor data every 15 minutes from Ops Center and then plots it against a 2D
matrix that represents the physical layout of Ranger. Thanks DJ !
some sample charts that show system fan speed (per blade) and system temperature (averaged per rack). Pretty neat !
