70 Implementing the IBM General Parallel File System (GPFS) in a Cross-Platform Environment
3.1 ITSO laboratory environment
This section describes the ITSO laboratory testing environment.
The ITSO laboratory environment consists of IBM Power Systems, System x servers, SAN
storage, InfiniBand and Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) networks. The hardware we used is as
follows:
Two IBM 550 servers
Two IBM 570 servers
Six x86_64 servers
3.1.1 Diagram of ITSO laboratory
Figure 3-1 shows the ITSO laboratory infrastructure and testing environment.
Figure 3-1 The ITSO laboratory infrastructure
3.1.2 ITSO laboratory environment host file
The /etc/hosts file, shown in Example 3-1, is used for network communications on all nodes in
the ITSO lab environment.
Example 3-1 ITSO /etc/hosts file use for all scenarios in this chapter
