Found this at Flickr, showing off 64 Itanium 2 CPUs (or 32 dual-cores) and 512 GB (yes, GB!) of RAM... :shock:

What is that system? How can it possibly have enough slots for that number of processors and the number of memory modules needed to get 500 GB of Ram?! (given that you can't get a module bigger than about 2 GB I think)

Commercially you cant get more than 4GB I don't think but those guys can get them bigger. And its probably a specially designed system. Its most likely a cluster.

As I said, it's some big fat enterprise Itanium system. These things in general have up to 64 CPUs, but some can "supposedly" handle even 128. As for the RAM, sizes between 64GB and 512GB~1TB are common as well. They probably use 1GB sticks, maybe even 2GB. I suppose that thing is huge. It's running Server 2003 Datacenter, BTW (necessary for that number of CPUs).

I found the site on that system, it's an HP superdome server. It uses 512MB to 2GB SO-DIMMs (these things are incredibly expensive) and can have up to 128 CPUs and 1TB of RAM. It's not a cluster, but a single system supporting hardware partitioning.

Wow :shock:

That's a lot of memory and a lot of cpus :)

Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyy would you enable the page file when you have 512GB of RAM?!

And also how big is the pagefile, Windows usual takes your RAM then do some sort of calculation to it, to make it bigger than real RAM. Won't that make a huge pagefile?

Judging from Task Manager ("Limit") the pagefile is about 30 GB on that system.

The thing can have up to 192 PCI-X slots, and I'm sure there are dual GBit Ethernet cards, so that would make up for a nice number of connections...

Something else: 32 dual-core 1.8GHz Opteron 865s (64 cores in total) with 127 or 128GB of RAM running Server 2003 Datacenter x64... Now that box would really fly for some apps, unlike the Itanium2 which only "owns" when it comes to special applications... Having this box set up running VMware or ESX would give a kick-ass development workstation...

Indeed. And this time it's been set up properly: with no page file :D

Can anybody explain that weird total memory... 134,068,848K ~= 130,926M ~= 127.86GB? it's off from 128GB by about 145MB, which is very weird... could it be the frame buffer for a video card or perhaps buffers reserved for some other equipment (NICs?)?

Its normal. Memory is never exact down to the last byte.

Yes, maybe some buffer for PCI address space (although I doubt it, honestly). The System Properties also say "only" 127GB instead of 128. Although – if I were the owner of that system, I think I wouldn't be bothered too much with that.

Now, that's be a good box to put Windows 1.01 on :D ! If those are the size of the processor and RAM, how big might the hard disk be????

BTW, how can I set this up as the background on an apple machine on which I have absolutely no user privilages? I have managed to change the background a couple of times before, but I think only a couple of machines can do it. Since there are about 200 machines here, it is purely 'by chance' tha one can find a machine that you can just do it from. I have a freind who knows how to do it, but he won't tell me because he's a goon.... can anyone help??

I think this box has some SCSI or SAS disk subsystem...

As for the background, if it's OS X, try to Ctrl-Click on the desktop and see if you can change the background. But if your priviledges don't even allow that, you might be out of luck. Don't know how it's done and set up in the classic Mac OS, though.

That is just about the most insane thing I have ever seen. I mean, sure I've seen multi-CPU systems before, and systems with large amounts of RAM, but that's just crazy. 64 cpus and 512GB of RAM? That's obscene, even.

(BTW, first post)

And a pity it runs Windows... Well, at least a box that really requires Windows Datacenter.

And although it has a large amount of cpu's, it still seems as though it's
getting a good workout according to task manager, not much left spare.
I'd imagine it'd have enough fans to move a mountain of dust too! :?
