SPARC M7 Series Servers : How to differentiate M7-8 with one Pdomain and M7-8 with two Pdomains (Doc ID 2060018.1)

Last updated on JUNE 06, 2017

Applies to:

SPARC M7-8 - Version All Versions and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The SPARC M7-8 server can be ordered with one or two PDomains.

A SPARC M7-8 server with one PDomain includes all of the processors, memory, and PCIe expansion in the chassis. In this configuration, a SPARC M7-8 server can use up to eight processors within its single static PDomain.

In a SPARC M7-8 server with two PDomains, each PDomain includes half of the possible processors, memory, and PCIe expansion slots in the chassis. In this two PDomain configuration, each static PDomain operates as separate servers within the same chassis.

The goal of this document is to help to identify the 2 types of M7-8.

Note : M7 Supercluster is using SPARC M7-8 with two PDomains.
