What is sun4v? (NOT sun4u)
Noticed mentions of it (~750 references?) in the OpenSolaris released source.
Future hardware platform or cancelled project?

I don't know definitively, but looking around at:
it appears to be the niagra chip.

In article <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Neal A. Lucier &...Creating a hardware database
I am one of the many people who are building their own CAD
workstation. I propose that we make some kind of database of MB,
memory, processor and video card combos that can be browsed. I am
getting ready to build a system with a Quadro FX 1400 and I can't find
anywhere what motherboards it has been tested with! Very
frustrating. Anyway, I appreciate your comments. System proposed so
far is: (WXPPSP2)
Core 2D E6850 Proc
2x DDR2-800 Crucial 1G sticks (certified on GB MB)
So far I have found that it is easy to find matched proc/MB/mem but
terrible to find V...sun4v vs. sun4u
Hi there !
Can anybody tell me what exactly (besides the virtualization hypervisor)
the main potential advantage of the sun4v CPUs is? I heard rumors that they
are markably slower than current US IV+ for certain applications - but I
don't know what "certain" means. IOW: is the above allegation true and if
yes, is there a rule of thumb when to use which CPU?

Is it (im)possible to build a sun4v (t2000) system from a sun4u (Netra)
boot server. I keep getting TFTP timeouts ?

That must be wonderful! I don't understand it at all.

I'm trying to use dumps from a V240 with Solaris 10 11/06 to boot a
T1000. I did install the approximately half dozen packages that the
T1000 gets installed that are missing from the V240. I'm still getting
the "the file just loaded does not appear to be an executable" error.
What causes this error? Is there something else that I need to install?

we have currently a cluster with six SUN v490 who run 20 zones. It is
possible to move this zones using VxFS using Veritas Cluster Suite
betweeen the three v490. Now I would like to know if it is possible to
switch a zone between sun4v and sun4u like adding a SUN T5xx?
...Should a sun4v T5240 execute all sun4u binaries ok?
As you might have gathered from another thread of mine, I have some
binaries which were compiled on a Blade 2500 running Solaris 10 update 1.

drkirkby@kest...How to create virtual channels without hardware attached.
Is it possible to create and modify Virtual Channels and to attach to
a physical device on a computer that doesn't have the necessary DAQ
hardware attached to it. The Virtual channel can be created but I
cannot attach it to any DAQ device, ensuring the device is present in
the Device List. The purpose would be to create and modify
configuration files on an administration computer and to export the
daq file to the destination computer that has the necessary hardware.
I know I can use the remote administration feature but my network
security environment does not allow it.
