Hello,

I found on the Silicon Graphics® Onyx4™ UltimateVision™ User’s Guide the
way to cable a 32 processors 16 pipes racked system.

Then I saw on SGiStuff and geek websites that a 64 processors 32 pipes
racked systems can be cabled

Onyx4 UltimateVision Extreme Configuration
Processors: 16-64
Graphics pipes: 8-32
Memors: up to 128 GB
Configuration: tall rack

I would like to know how to make this configuration. Is there somewhere
the way to do it. In fact how to cable it?

Thanks
Regards
Pierre

This sounds similar to my 4-rack Onyx2 Reality Monster configuration
seen here:

In my case, I have 4 Origin 2000 style tall racks. One rack contains
two boxes with CPUs and the other three racks contain the graphics
pipes. The whole set is connected together with SGI/Cray NUMAlink
cabling. <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NUMAlink>
