Pardon me for my knowledge about NetApp & ONTAP. I am quite new and trying to understand the processor that is available on my ONTAP node. I logged into CLI and tried system controller config show and the Controller Module output says:
- Controller Module
2.5 GHz (Virtual Machine)
Model Name: CDvM200
Serial Number: 2XXXX1
Loader version: 1.0
Processor ID: 0x50654
Microcode Version: 0x2006b06
Memory Size: 31956 MB
I can see it is a 2.5GHz CPU, not sure if it has 8 processors or 8 cores. What processor is 0x50654? Is there some way I can know the specific CPU model? E.g. Intel 6226R or something.
This system is clearly a Virtual Machine. you would need to identify the instance type for the CVO to determine what it is allotted. for underlying hardware information, I am not certain if your cloud provider may be able to define that for you.
In a real system you would see something like this:
Processor type: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2680 v2 @ 2.80GHz
Also, more detailed information per platform if available at hwu.netapp.com
Thank you for following up. Unfortunately, I haven't got access to an on-prem system yet. I do have access to an on-prem 7-mode box. But looks like the commands vary, can't run "system controller config show" on the 7-mode box.
I did see your response saying "Processor type: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2680 v2 @ 2.80GHz". I don't see Processor type, instead, I see Processor ID on Cloud ONTAP. Will the output be Processor type when running on an on-prem box?
Thank you, Pedro. Apologies for the delay, "sysconfig -a" says Processor ID: 0xf29
How do I decode the actual processor? I would like to see something like this - "Processor type: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2680 v2 @ 2.80GHz"
The output I shared was in a ONTAP system, not 7-mode. I thought you would get something similar on 7-mode.
I checked a 7-mode system and got the following (7-mode 8.1.4 FAS3270):
slot 0: System Board 3.0 GHz (System Board XVI F6)
Model Name: FAS3270
Part Number: 111-00574
Serial Number: -
BIOS version: 5.2.1
Loader version: 3.4
Processor ID: 0x1067a
Microcode Version: 0xa0b
Processor type: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5240 @ 3.00GHz
Processor type is what you are looking for, right?
Are you sure it is not on your output from a real system (not cloud nor ontap select)?
Yes, here is the output saying FAS2020
FAS2020> sysconfig -a
NetApp Release 7.3.7P1: Tue Sep 18 04:20:57 PDT 2012
System ID: 0xxxxxxxx39 (FAS2020)
System Serial Number: 2000000xxxxxx (FAS2020)
System Rev: E3
System Storage Configuration: Single Path
System ACP Connectivity: NA
slot 0: System Board 2198 MHz (System Board XIV G1)
Model Name: FAS2020
Part Number: 110-000xx
Serial Number: xxxxxx1
BIOS version: 3.0
Processor ID: 0xf29
Microcode Version: 0x2f
Memory Size: 1024 MB
NVMEM Size: 128 MB of Main Memory Used
CMOS RAM Status: OK
do you have access to BMC/RLM/SP?
we can try to see in the logs a sample output from the controller boot. it could have the processor specification
or if you could boot the controller, it may show you also.
Thank you once again, Pedro! Was thinking about programmatically connecting via CLI and get the information from all the nodes. Processor ID to Processor type mapping would help.
Appreciate all your help.
