C Cabling Diagrams

This appendix contains cabling diagrams for each of the Exalogic machine configurations. This appendix has the following sections:

Note:

For information about connecting an Exalogic machine with one or more Exalogic or Exadata machines, see the Exalogic Elastic Cloud Multirack Cabling Guide.

C.1 Exalogic Eighth Rack

Figure C-1 illustrates the cabling for a single Exalogic eighth rack.

Figure C-1 Exalogic Eighth Rack Network Connectivity

Description of Figure C-1 follows
Description of "Figure C-1 Exalogic Eighth Rack Network Connectivity"

In Figure C-1, NM2-GW represents a Sun Network QDR InfiniBand Gateway Switch (leaf switches). Servers refers to compute nodes in the Exalogic machine. Half of the compute nodes are connected with their active ports to the first gateway switch and their passive ports to the second gateway switch. The remaining half of the compute nodes are connected with their active ports to the second gateway switch and their passive ports to the first gateway switch. This connection is for high availability and load distribution purposes.

Exalogic machine eighth racks do not contain the Sun Datacenter InfiniBand Switch 36.

C.2 Exalogic Quarter Rack

Figure C-2 illustrates the cabling for a single Exalogic quarter rack.

Figure C-2 Exalogic Quarter Rack Network Connectivity

Description of Figure C-2 follows
Description of "Figure C-2 Exalogic Quarter Rack Network Connectivity"

In Figure C-2, NM2-GW represents a Sun Network QDR InfiniBand Gateway Switch (leaf switches). Servers refers to compute nodes in the Exalogic machine. Half of the compute nodes are connected with their active ports to the first gateway switch and their passive ports to the second gateway switch. The remaining half of the compute nodes are connected with their active ports to the second gateway switch and their passive ports to the first gateway switch. This connection is for high availability and load distribution purposes.

Exalogic machine quarter racks do not contain the Sun Datacenter InfiniBand Switch 36.

C.3 Exalogic Half Rack

Figure C-3 illustrates the cabling for a single Exalogic half rack.

Figure C-3 Exalogic Half Rack Network Connectivity

Description of Figure C-3 follows
Description of "Figure C-3 Exalogic Half Rack Network Connectivity"

In Figure C-3, NM2-GW represents a Sun Network QDR InfiniBand Gateway Switch (leaf switches). Servers refers to compute nodes in the Exalogic machine. The Sun Datacenter InfiniBand Switch 36, referred to as spine switch, is not connected.

C.4 Exalogic Full Rack

Figure C-4 illustrates the cabling for a single Exalogic full rack.

Figure C-4 Exalogic Full Rack Network Connectivity

Description of Figure C-4 follows
Description of "Figure C-4 Exalogic Full Rack Network Connectivity"

In Figure C-4, NM2-GW represents a Sun Network QDR InfiniBand Gateway Switch (leaf switches). Servers refers to compute nodes in the Exalogic machine. The Sun Datacenter InfiniBand Switch 36, referred to as spine switch, is not connected.
