Using Management and Automation Tools

Using management and automation tools can help to ensure that the 684956-001 HP CPU System Board PCI Riser Card for Proliant Dl360e Server and any connected expansion cards are working optimally. These tools can provide detailed information about the server and its components, allow for remote management and configuration, and provide monitoring and alerting capabilities. Some examples of management and automation tools that may be used with the 684956-001 riser card include:

  • HPE iLO: HPE's Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) is a management controller that can be used to remotely manage and monitor the server. It provides access to system information, allows for remote power control, and provides virtual media and virtual KVM capabilities.
  • HPE OneView: HPE OneView is a software-defined infrastructure management platform that can be used to manage and automate the entire lifecycle of the Proliant DL360e server and connected devices.
  • HPE Systems Management Homepage: HPE Systems Management Homepage is a web-based interface that provides an overview of the server's health, allows for remote management, and provides access to logs and system event information.
  • HPE Scripting Toolkit: HPE Scripting Toolkit is a set of command line tools that can be used to automate and manage the server. It can be used to perform tasks such as firmware updates, system configuration, and power control.
  • HPE Smart Update Manager: HPE Smart Update Manager is a tool that can be used to automate firmware and software updates for the server and connected devices.

It is important to check the manufacturer's website for information on how to use these tools, and to follow the instructions for installation.

Connecting High-Bandwidth Devices

Connecting high-bandwidth devices to the 684956-001 HP CPU System Board PCI Riser Card for Proliant DL360e Server can provide many benefits to the server's performance and functionality. High-bandwidth devices can include network adapters, host bus adapters (HBAs), and other expansion cards that require a high data transfer rate.

  • Network Adapters: Network adapters, such as 10 GbE or 40 GbE, can be connected to the riser card to provide high-speed connectivity to the network. This can be particularly useful for servers that are used for data-intensive applications.
  • HBAs: Host bus adapters can be used to connect the server to external storage systems, such as a storage area network (SAN) or network-attached storage (NAS). This can provide faster access to data and can help to improve the performance of data-intensive applications.
  • NVMe SSDs: NVMe Solid State Drives can be connected to the riser card via NVMe HBAs or NVMe to PCIe adapter to boost the storage performance.
  • GPUs: Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) can be connected to the riser card via PCIe slots to accelerate various workloads, such as machine learning, deep learning, and scientific computing.

It is important to ensure that the high-bandwidth devices are compatible with the riser card and that the riser card has enough available slots to accommodate them. It's also important to ensure that the server's power supply is adequate to handle the additional power requirements of the high-bandwidth devices.

Monitoring System Performance

Monitoring system performance is an important aspect of maintaining and troubleshooting the 684956-001 HP CPU System Board PCI Riser Card for Proliant DL360e Server. There are a variety of tools and techniques that can be used to monitor the performance of the server and its components.

  1. HPE System Management Homepage: HPE System Management Homepage is a web-based interface that provides an overview of the server's health and allows for the monitoring of system events, logs and performance.
  2. HPE Insight Diagnostics: HPE Insight Diagnostics is a tool that can be used to perform hardware diagnostic tests on the server and its components. It can be used to check for hardware errors and to identify potential issues before they become critical.
  3. HPE Integrated Management Log: The HPE Integrated Management Log (IML) is a log that records all system events, including critical errors, and can be used to troubleshoot problems with the server.
  4. Performance monitoring software: There are various third-party performance monitoring software available that can be used to monitor various aspects of the server, such as CPU usage, memory usage, and disk activity.
  5. OS performance monitoring tools: Operating System provides built-in tools to monitor the performance of the system, such as Task Manager, System Monitor, and Resource Monitor.
  6. SNMP: Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) can be used to monitor the server's performance and status remotely.

It is important to regularly check the logs, performance metrics and system events to identify potential issues and to take action when necessary. It is also important to make sure that the server's firmware and software are up to date, as this can help to improve performance and stability.

About Refurbished Products

Refurbished products are typically refurbished by an Original Manufacturer or an affiliate of the manufacturer or 3rd party facility. This product may have minor blemishes due to normal product usage and doesn't necessarily come with documentation and software unless indicated, but has been well tested and generally has never had any defects.

Server Motherboard

The server motherboard coordinates and houses the vital components of the server from the CPU (Central Processing Unit) to the chipset, the PCIe slots, and all the RDIMM sockets. It can also be called a multiprocessor or systems board. A server motherboard hosts communications between the Server CPU and other systems connected to the server via a network which could be a server database, applications server, or web server. The server motherboard unlike a desktop motherboard typically has more than one microprocessor due to the workload as a lot of processes are always running in the background. Hence, it has more cores and threads for efficient data processing.

Server Board Components

  • CPU support: these days, the memory controller is built directly into the CPU, therefore allowing it to support different memory speeds. That is why CPU count and the CPU type become important. For instance, Intel's Motherboard is only compatible with Intel processors. Hence, an LGA 771 CPU must be installed on an LGA 771 motherboard.
  • Processor slots: Some motherboards can have two or more processors. Subject to server and processor type, the installation of the processor could be in a ZIF socket, a single-processor cartridge, or a patented multiprocessor cartridge. These days, server processors are socketed. Server boards based on ATX, BTX, and other form factors can also support up to 4 processors as the motherboard to be used in a server is influenced by the number of processors.
  • Chipset: Although your motherboard may have a similar form factor with another server board, the components for compatibility depend on the chipset of the motherboard itself. It is made up of the north and south bridges. The northbridge is the chip controlling the channel of communication between the CPU, Memory, PCIe, and the southbridge. While the southbridge connects the input and output devices like the USBs, SATA, Bus, and others. It also regulates power management. Some server boards also have other chips for more functions like network control, PCI-X control, etc. The server motherboard's chipset supports memory ECC (error-correcting code) and Registered SDRAM and DDR RAM. It also supports PCI-X expansion slots
  • iv.DIMM (RAM) sockets
