HP’s entry-level system for the realm of enterprise servers is dubbed the ProLiant ML350 G3—for 3rd generation. The server comes in both tower and rack-mountable configurations. OpenBench Labs tested the 5U rack-mount version of the HP ML350 G3, which was configured with two 2.4GHz Intel Xeon processors with Hyper-Threading Technology (HTT) sporting 512KB L2 caches and 533MHz system bus interfaces. All of this CPU fire power resides on a motherboard built upon the ServerWorks Grand Champion LE chipset.
For high availability, the memory subsystem of the HP motherboard utilizes a multi-bit memory ECC algorithm, memory scrubbing, Chipkill technology, and supports hot-spare memory configurations to make failures invisible. This, however, is only the start.
HP ProLiant servers have an optional hardware and software module that is called the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition. This option provides an embedded hardware-based graphical remote console, which is OS-independent. With this option installed, systems administrators can take full control of a remote server to shut it down, start it up, or perform any other OS function via a remote display, keyboard, and mouse. To make this scheme work, the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition board has its own processor, an onboard Fast Ethernet chip, and its own independent Web Server that provides HTML pages to any browser over a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection.
Yet even without this option installed, the HP ProLiant ML350 G3 has a number of standard features to help monitor server health. For example, the activity LEDs on the front panel of the server do double duty: They change color from green to yellow when a problem develops in the subsystem that they are used to monitor. There is also a unique blue LED that is used to indicate whether the Lights-Out module is activated.
