10 Easy Steps To Patch Oracle Exadata X8M RoCE Switch

The Oracle Exadata X8M release implements 100 Gb/sec RoCE network fabric, making the world’s fastest database machine even faster.

Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M introduces a brand new high-bandwidth low-latency 100 Gb/sec RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) Network Fabric that connects all the components inside an Exadata Database Machine. Specialized database networking protocols deliver much lower latency and higher bandwidth than is possible with generic communication protocols for faster response time for OLTP operations and higher throughput for analytic workloads.

The ORacle Exadata X8M release provides the next generation in ultra-fast cloud scale networking fabric, RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE). RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access) allows one computer to directly access data from another without Operating System or CPU involvement, for high bandwidth and low latency. The network card directly reads/writes memory with no extra copying or buffering and very low latency.


RDMA is an integral part of the Exadata high-performance architecture, and has been tuned and enhanced over the past decade, underpinning several Exadata-only technologies such as Exafusion Direct-to-Wire Protocol and Smart Fusion Block Transfer. As the RoCE API infrastructure is identical to InfiniBand’s, all existing Exadata performance features are available on RoCE.

In this article we see practically how to patch Exadata X8M RoCE Switches

 

1. Create a file containing RoCE switch hostname

[root@dm01dbadm01 ~]# cat roce_list

dm01sw-rocea01

dm01sw-roceab1

 

2. Get the current RoCE Switch software version

[root@dm01dbadm01 ~]# ssh admin@dm01sw-rocea01 show version

3. Download the the RoCE switch software from MOS note 888828.1 and copy it Exadata compute node 1

[root@dm01dbadm01 ~]# cd /u01/stage/ROCE/

 

[root@dm01dbadm01 ROCE]# ls -ltr

total 2773832

-rw-r–r– 1 root root 2840400612 Apr  9 00:42 p30893922_193000_Linux-x86-64.zip

 

4. Unzip the RoCE patch

[root@dm01dbadm01 ROCE]# unzip p30893922_193000_Linux-x86-64.zip

6. Navigate to the patch directory and execute the following to get the patch syntax

[root@dm01dbadm01 patch_switch_19.3.6.0.0.200317]# ./patchmgr -h

Usage:

./patchmgr –roceswitches [roceswitch_list_file]

           –upgrade [–verify-config [yes|no]] [–roceswitch-precheck] [–force]  |

           –downgrade [–verify-config [yes|no]]  [–roceswitch-precheck] [–force]  |

           –verify-config [yes|no]

           [-log_dir <fullpath> ]

 

./patchmgr –ibswitches [ibswitch_list_file]

          <–upgrade | –downgrade> [–ibswitch_precheck] [–unkey] [–force [yes|no]]

 

 

7. Execute the following command to perform configuration verification

Note:  The patching should be performed by a non-root user. In this case I am using oracle user to perform the patching

8. Execute the following command to perform prerequisite checks.

Note: During this step it will prompt you setup the SSH between oracle user and RoCE switch. Please enter the admin user password of RoCE switch.
