Notes:



* Subscriptions are available for systems larger than 8 sockets, please contact your Red Hat sales representative for details.


[1] Red Hat defines physical CPUs equivalently to sockets, so a multi-core and/or hyperthreading CPU is counted as a single socket when determining which subscription to purchase


[3] Certified limits reflect the current state of system testing by Red Hat and its partners, and set the upper limit of support provided by any Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscription if not otherwise limited explicitly by the subscription terms. Certified limits are subject to change as on-going testing completes.


[4] Red Hat defines a logical CPU as any schedulable entity. So every core/thread in a multi-core/thread processor is a logical CPU


[5] The "SMP" kernel supports a maximum of 16GB of main memory. Systems with more than 16GB of main memory use the "Hugemem" kernel. In certain workload scenarios it may be advantageous to use the "Hugemem" kernel on systems with more than 12GB of main memory.


[6] The x86 "Hugemem" kernel is not provided in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5


[7] If there are any 32-bit machines in the cluster, the maximum gfs file system size is 16TB. If all machines in the cluster are 64-bit, the maximum size is 8EB.


[8] Officially support 125 CPUs across the entire machine.
