UltraSPARC T2: Bigger Basket, More Eggs

With its 64 threads, the UltraSPARC T2 processor can handle big consolidation workloads. But it is fair to ask whether you should be comfortable putting more eggs (applications) into that bigger basket. We think you should be, in part because of all the work we've done around Fault Management for T2 platforms.

Scott Davenport has led the team that designed and developed the FMA implementation for T2 systems. He has an excellent blog entry that describes exactly what the team has done to diagnose CPU, memory, IO, crypto, and networking issues. Definitely worth a read.
