It's a great testament to SGI's engineering that different CPU speeds and cache sizes can be mixed in one multi-processor system.  Some other architectures won't allow that.  Heck, it's impressive just to see so many CPUs in a single system (rather than a cluster).  I love seeing all the SCSI channels and Ethernet interfaces enumerated, too.  What would be the point of lots CPUs without impressive I/O to interface to them?

Great system. Thanks for posting that!

What software can I run to stresstest this Smile?

holy cow!  now that is an impressive setup!  Honestly good question though, I can think of many things to do with a 64cpu sgi, but without graphics I dunno - only thing I can think of is a compiling/dev system.  I've heard of people using an o2 or octane to "front-end" to a big origin system, but I never really had any understand what they could possibly be doing other than running something like a compiler or number crunching program (factoring primes, etc)

edit: btw we could really use a seperate "hinv/show off your stuff" category Smile

Not necessarily ... the "Elan silkscreen door" goes with an R3000 Elan Indigo. The R4x00 Elan Indigo had a standard (blank?) door and an "Elan" badge.

The devil is in the details Smile

When I got my Indigo decades ago, it was a R3000 XZ but it had the Elan door for some reason. It didn't have the badge, so when I upgraded it to the R4400/150mhz I got the Elan badge and kept the Elan door, I think it just looks more complete that way 👍
