---------------------------------------------

nitin-maharana opened a new pull request #2339: [WIP] CLOUDSTACK-10159 Addition of NVIDIA
Tesla M60 card in CloudStack (XenServer 6.5 SP1)
URL: https://github.com/apache/cloudstack/pull/2339
 
 
   Introduction:
   ==========
   Currently, CloudStack gets GPU capability through NVIDIA GRID K1 and GRID K2 cards only
on the XenServer Host. Now, XenServer 6.5 SP1 has added support for NVIDIA Maxwell card(Tesla
M60), which supports both Passthrough and vGPU features. This improvement would allow the
user to get benefits of Telsa GPU cards while deploying a VM with GPU enabled.
   
   Benefits of Tesla M60:
   =================
   1. The Tesla M60 card supports latest NVIDIA GRID 2.0 technology.
   2. The Tesla M60 can run more VMs per server. It supports a maximum of 128 VMs on a XenServer
6.5 SP1 host.
   3. Now It can run on a blade server and supports vGPU on Linux VMs.(Only on M60-8Q, M60-4Q,
M60-2Q, M60-1Q, M60-0Q)
   4. The Tesla M60 card supports a maximum resolution of 2560 X 1600.
   5. Tesla M60 has a maximum CUDA core of 4096 on both the GPUs (2048 each).
   
   Tesla M60 Virtual GPU Types:
   ======================
   
   
   Physical GPUs | GRID Virtual GPU | Frame Buffer (MB) | Virtual Display Heads | Maximum
Resolution per Display Head | Maximum vGPUs per GPU | Maximum vGPU per Board
   -- | -- | -- | -- | -- | -- | --
   2 | M60-8Q | 8192 | 4 | 4096×2160 | 1 | 2
   2 | M60-4Q | 4096 | 4 | 4096×2160 | 2 | 4
   2 | M60-2Q | 2048 | 4 | 4096×2160 | 4 | 8
   2 | M60-1Q | 1024 | 2 | 4096×2160 | 8 | 16
   2 | M60-0Q | 512 | 2 | 2560×1600 | 16 | 32

   2 | M60-4A | 4096 | 1 | 1280×1024 | 2 | 4
   2 | M60-2A | 2048 | 1 | 1280×1024 | 4 | 8
   2 | M60-1A | 1024 | 1 | 1280×1024 | 8 | 16

   Note:
   ====
   1. The change is not tested against the Tesla M60 card.
   2. If any community user has the physical card available in their lab, I request you to
test this change and report the result. I would appreciate that.
   3. The Marvin tests were run against NVIDIA GRID K1 and K2 cards, the result is successful.
