Cluster Systems Management for pSeries Linux is a dynamic environment to centralize management of a cluster of pSeries Linux systems; some of the new features which might be available in the near future are:
Highly Available Management Server to eliminate the management server being a single point of failure. Once set up, managed nodes can function independently, but the management server is important for using features such as event monitoring.
Interoperability and mix of managed nodes running on xSeries, IntelliStation, e325 Linux clusters and pSeries servers running AIX.
Red Hat Enterprise Advanced Server version 3.0 support for the management server and nodes.
A higher number managed nodes. With CSM version 1.3.2, the current limit is a maximum of 128 pSeries Linux nodes. Future versions will support a higher number of nodes.
Support for new High Speed Switch offerings.
Better cross-support on xSeries systems using IBM Director software.
