Please post your 'hinv' in the following format:

Topic: Kind of machine (O2, Octane, Tezro, Onyx2, etc.), CPU (R10k 250MHz, R12k 300MHz, R16k 1GHz, etc.), RAM, graphics option (Example: Tezro V12 4xR16K 700MHz 4GB)

Body: output of hinv -v (hinv -vm if possible) and /usr/gfx/gfxinfo.

Please wrap the output in BBCode "code" blocks to improve legibility.

Edit: Updated 25 Mar 2012, added a picture

First posting is an up-to-date system configuration, see latest comments for what was changed etc.

Not much interesting to say about adding an L2...
Code:
M2100887-001-L2>cfg
L2 10.10.10.107: - 001 (LOCAL)
L1 10.10.10.107:1:0      - 001r08   
L1 10.10.10.107:2:0      - 001c02   
L1 10.10.10.107:0:0      - 001c01   
M2100887-001-L2>


But the PROM initialization changes a tiny bit with the addition of the NUMALink Router:
Code:
M2100887-001-L2>* pwr up
M2100887-001-L2>^D
entering system console mode (001c01 CPU0), <CTRL_T> to escape to L2

Making due with PROM hinv output for the time being... But since I NUMAlinked the two modules and brought them up to the PROM and in sync as a single system for the first time, I figured it was time to post a hinv.

RAM in all slots is 030-1060-004 1GB modules, and each machine came with an 030-2097-001 "4Gb dual link FibreChannel HBA" in the top PCI slot.

Very nice system! Those FC cards, if you don't intend to use them, they have a considerable market value (particularly of this type).
Thanks - I have an insatiable need for freshly rendered mirror spheres and teapots hovering above checkerboards, and this will really help feed the beast... :lol:

And special thanks re: the FC cards. One thing that really stands out on nekochan is that people are very helpful in identifying items like that where the poster may not have a clue. Makes for a great community, and I hope I can give a little back along the way.

Nice machine! I've been meaning to pick up another 300 and enjoy 8 processor goodness myself. Mmmmmmm!

Finally hooked up the L2 and NUMALink Router I bought a while back with the two Origin 300 bricks. Cabled everything up, powered up the L2, then each O300 brick...

Interesting to see that each brick seems to have it's serial number cleared whenever the L2 first detects it. I knew the L2 would push/enforce it's serial number, but interesting to see it in action. After I checked the serial number at the start of this, I plugged in the power for the NUMALink Router.

Code:

The OS install was left over from a test run so I'll scratch that, decide on .22 or .30, and load some Nekoware so I can put these CPUs and the Router through their paces.

Congrats on getting it all hooked up with an L2, one day I hope to get one too.

Thanks - no drama, which I had half expected. The L2 Emulator from the L3 software package worked just fine, but this L2 was too good a deal to let get away. Ditto for the router. Though at this point all I've done is increased my electric bill for no change in performance... :?

In your case would you use it with O300s, A350s, or... both?

Having the L3 software running in a VM on a cheap laptop is cheap, makes for a convenient console, etc etc. I currently use a Thinkpad R52 with a 2GHz Pentium M - plenty fast enough for this, plus browsing Nekochan. And one of these days I'll look into the performance monitoring software that's in the L3 package.

This laptop also runs DINA in another VM, for fast installs or updates. A hard drive with a few dozen GBs provides plenty of room for IRIX and Nekoware. Highly recommended...

I've got a second O300 on it's way at the end of the month. The A350s need an IO9, right now they're collecting dust :(

I'll have to look into the L3 software, thanks for the heads up!

Here's a picture of the system. The L2 controller is out of sight.
