    Avantra to monitor SUSE LE 12 on IBM Power8

    Featured Image

    Starting from version 6.0.20 the syslink Xandria agent supports SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 (SLES 12) on top of the IBM POWER8 architecture.

    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server is a highly reliable, scalable, and secure server operating system, built to power mission-critical workloads in both physical and virtual environments. It is an affordable, interoperable, and manageable open source foundation. With it, enterprises can cost-effectively deliver core business services, enable secure networks, and simplify the management of their heterogeneous IT infrastructure, maximizing efficiency and value.

    POWER8 is a family of superscalarsymmetric multiprocessors based on the Power Architecture. POWER8 is designed to be a massively multithreaded chip, with each of its cores capable of handling eight hardware threads simultaneously, for a total of 96 threads executed simultaneously on a 12-core chip. The processor makes use of very large amounts of on- and off-chip eDRAM caches, and on-chip memory controllers enable very high bandwidth to memory and system I/O.

    SLES12 as well as RedHat Enterprise Linux 7.2 and some Ubuntu variants only support the little endian byte order of the POWER8 architecture. From version 6.0.20 and on, syslink Xandria's agent supports these operation system stypes as well.
