  • Question about MMA, GPU, CPU and types of LLMs
    on 2024-07-15 at 05:13

    2) In terms of performance, you need to configure your Power10 server appropriately; then you can easily handle LLMs with billions of parameters; the 8B models you are referencing shouldn’t be a problem then: https://community.ibm.com/community/user/powerdeveloper/blogs/sebastian-lehrig/2024/03/26/sizing-for-ai All of that, not only MMA, improves performance of AI workloads such as inferencing of LLMs. Given that this directly works with the CPU, you can leverage system memory (so you’re not restricted to GPU memory) and you don’t need to mess around with CUDA.

  • Fans Revving Like Crazy On Your Power10? Check The Firmware
    by Timothy Prickett Morgan on 2024-07-15 at 04:08

    It doesn’t happen very often, but sometimes a patch to firmware for Power Systems is defective, and when it does happen, we like to point it out. Defective PTFs happen fairly regularly with IBM i, as defective patches happen for other operating systems. Sometimes the effects of defective PTF patches are dramatic, sometimes they are just weird. Sometimes they are in between. Both IBM i 7.4 and IBM i 7.5 have a defective patch in the firmware for Power10 systems, and to be super precise it affects machine types 9105-22A (Power S1022), 9105-22B (Power S1022s), 9105-41B (Power S1014), 9105-42A (Power … The post Fans Revving Like Crazy On Your Power10?

  • New functionality added to RPG’s SND-MSG op code
    by [email protected] (Simon Hutchinson) on 2024-07-11 at 10:03

    Two years ago the Send Message, SND-MSG, operation code was added to RPG. In the latest round of Technology Refreshes a number of new options have been added to SND-MSG and the Target, %TARGET, built in function. To oversimplify it SND_MSG consists to three parts: Type of message to send Message text or variable The target for the message, which is the %TARGET built in function, BiF. This is optional For example: SND-MSG *INFO ‘Message text goes here’ %TARGET(*SELF) Read more »

  • Xorux Is Gaining Traction With LPAR2RRD System Monitoring
    by Timothy Prickett Morgan on 2024-07-08 at 04:08

    System monitoring and management is a lot more complicated these days than it was back in the early days of the AS/400 or even the middle years of the iSeries. To start, there are physical and virtual servers, physical and virtual storage, and physical and virtual networking to deal with, and finding a tool – or a set of integrated tools – that can do that, and do it across disparate and incompatible platforms, is a big ask. But a little known software company called Xorux, which is based in Prague in the Czech Republic, also known as Czechia, actually … The post Xorux Is Gaining Traction With LPAR2RRD System Monitoring appeared first on IT Jungle.

  • Which VIO Servers Are You Using?
    by Anthony English on 2024-07-03 at 16:27

    How do you know which VIO servers your AIX LPARs are using for storage? There are different options for presenting storage for your AIX VIO clients (the LPARs). This article focuses on vSCSI storage. For most environments, the creation of virtual SCSI disks is a set-and-forget kind of activity. This makes it low maintenance, but The post Which VIO Servers Are You Using? first appeared on PowerWire.
