5.4 Single Phase Power Distribution Unit Cabling Tables

These tables show the cabling routes from each single-phase power distribution unit (PDU) to the power supplies configured in an Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M-2 and X8M-8.

5.4.1 Single Phase PDU Cabling for Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M-2 Full Rack

Single phase cabling for the Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M-2 Full Rack routes from each power distribution unit (PDU) to the power supplies.

The cables are terminated to PDU-A on the left (when looking at the rear of the rack), and routed to the right to enter the cable management arm (CMA). The cables are bundled in groups of four. The PDU connections list the group and outlet on the PDU. So, for example, G5-5 refers to group 5 outlet 5.

5.6 RDMA Network Fabric Network Cabling Tables

This section contains the tables for RDMA Network Fabric network cabling for Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M-2 and X8M-8 racks.

5.6.1 RDMA Network Fabric Network Cabling Tables for X8M-2 Racks

This topic contains the tables for RDMA Network Fabric network cabling for Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M-2 racks.

The InfiniBand Transport Layer systems based on a RoCE Network Layer switches are located in rack units 20 and 22 for Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M-2.

The following tables can be used for both flexible and fixed configurations. There are three sets of tables for each Exadata hardware model. One table is for storage servers, which have a 2-slot height (2RU). Another table is for the database servers, which require 1RU. The last table for each hardware model is for the inter-switch cabling, which provides the cabling information for the leaf switches.

Note:

Not all the slots shown in the tables below will be used in a single configuration. Match the rack component with the appropriate slot in the tables below to determine how to cable that particular component.

In the following tables, Un denotes the slot in the rack, where n is the number, such as U20. Pn denotes the RDMA Network Fabric port n, where n is port number, such as P1. The cables used for the RDMA Network Fabric switch are black in color. The following tables are in this section:

  • Table 5-9 RDMA Network Fabric Network Cabling for Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M-2 Database Servers
  • Table 5-10 RDMA Network Fabric Network Cabling for Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M-2 Storage Servers
  • Table 5-11 RDMA Network Fabric Inter-Switch Cabling for Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M-2

The following table lists the location, ports and cables for the RDMA Network Fabric connections for database servers in an Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M-2 rack.

5.6.2 RDMA Network Fabric Network Cabling Tables for X8M-8 Racks

This topic contains the tables for RDMA Network Fabric network cabling for Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M-8 racks.

The InfiniBand Transport Layer systems based on a RoCE Network Layer switches are located in rack units 21 and 23 for Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M-8.

The following tables can be used for both flexible and fixed configurations. There are three sets of tables for each Exadata hardware model. One table is for storage servers, which have a 2-slot height (2RU). Another table is for the database servers, which require 5RU. The last table for each hardware model is for the inter-switch cabling, which provides the cabling information for the leaf switches.

Note:

Not all the slots shown in the tables below will be used in a single configuration. Match the rack component with the appropriate slot in the tables below to determine how to cable that particular component.

In the following tables, Un denotes the slot in the rack, where n is the number, such as U23. Pn denotes the RDMA Network Fabric port n, where n is port number, such as P1. The cables used for the RDMA Network Fabric switch are black in color. The following tables are in this section:

  • Table 5-12 RDMA Network Fabric Network Cabling for Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M-8 Database Servers
  • Table 5-13 RDMA Network Fabric Network Cabling for Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M-8 Storage Servers
  • Table 5-14 RDMA Network Fabric Inter-Switch Cabling for Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M-8

The following table lists the rack location, ports and cables for the RDMA Network Fabric connections for database servers in an Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M-8 rack.
