what is this about?
Comment 2 Larry Troan 2003-03-04 11:08:16 EST
Arjan, this is large memory support on IA-64 architecture. 
HP has tested 48GB on their Everest box and will provide tests for 96GB. Believe
this is a 
1) Red Hat QA bandwidth issue 
2) requirement for HP to provide hardware with 96GB memory for our QA to test.

Charline is sending us an 8-way Olympia (8, Madison B0 chips) on March 24 in
order to enable HP's high-end systems (Pinnacles) support in AS 3.0 (IT 11385).
  This system will be able to use the 12, 1 GB DIMMS that HP is also sending us
with a fully loaded Long's Peak workstation.  

Severity set to: Urgent
Comment 4 Larry Troan 2003-03-18 12:46:24 EST
From Phil Rob: Everest can be upgraded with 2GB DIMMs to support 96GB and may be
a better approach to testing the high mem requirement. Sue, can you comment?
