Supermicro AS-1115SV-WTNRT System Management

Supermicro has equipped the AS-1115SV-WTNRT with a robust suite of management tools, including SuperCloud Composer and Supermicro Server Manager (SSM), which facilitate streamlined system management and monitoring. The BIOS is equipped with the contemporary UEFI 2.8 specification, offering enhanced security, faster boot times, and support for larger disk partitions.

The AS-1115SV-WTNRT also features a comprehensive Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) system that offers administrators control and monitoring capabilities. This BMC interface (accessible via a dedicated IP address) provides critical information on system health, allows for comprehensive configuration changes, and enables remote control actions without physical access to the hardware. It is a vital tool for managing server operations efficiently, ensuring uptime, and troubleshooting issues quickly.

The dashboard offers a comprehensive overview of the server’s status and essential metrics. It features system health indicators, IP addresses, and firmware versions, providing a snapshot of critical operational data. The power consumption is graphically displayed over time, detailing minimum, average, and maximum usage. This visualization allows admins to assess the server’s energy efficiency and operational costs at a glance. A remote console preview is also available, facilitating quick access to the server’s current operational status, which is invaluable for rapid troubleshooting and ongoing monitoring.

The CPU section offers detailed information about the server’s processor specifics (in our case, the AMD EPYC 8534P 64-Core Processor), such as speed, thermal design power (TDP), core count, thread count, and the manufacturer. This section is crucial for verifying the processor’s operational parameters and ensuring it runs within the specified limits.

In the Firmware Update tab, users can manage and update the firmware for various server components, such as BMC, BIOS, and CPLD. The interface allows users to choose the type of firmware, preserve existing configurations, and ensure that all critical updates are applied without affecting the server’s operational settings. This function is essential for maintaining server security, as firmware updates often contain patches for vulnerabilities and performance improvements.

The Memory tab provides detailed information on all installed memory modules, displaying each module’s health status, type, error correction code capability, operating speed, size, and serial number. The Memory tab allows users to easily track and manage the server’s physical memory, which is vital for diagnosing memory-related issues or planning upgrades.

The Power tab displays detailed power consumption statistics over various time frames, including the last hour, day, and week. It shows historical trends and peak values, which are useful for capacity planning and operational analysis. Users and admins can also use this data to optimize power settings, schedule low-power modes during off-peak hours, and make informed energy usage and efficiency decisions.

Blender OptiX 4.0

First up is Blender OptiX–an open-source 3D modeling application. This benchmark was run using the Blender Benchmark CLI utility. The score is samples per minute, with higher being better.

The Supermicro system showcased varying performance in 3D rendering tasks across different scenes when tested with and without GPU acceleration. In all scenarios—Monster, Junkshop, and Classroom—the CPU-only configuration delivered higher samples per minute compared to the GPU-assisted setup.

Specifically, the Monster scene achieved 492.88 samples/min without the GPU, outperforming the GPU-enabled score of 427.25 samples/min. Similarly, in the Junkshop scene, the CPU-only test reached 349.35 samples/min, significantly surpassing the GPU’s 266.65 samples/min. The Classroom scene also saw better performance with the CPU alone, scoring 255.98 samples/min against the GPU’s 238.33 samples/min.

Blender OptiX 4.1

Blender OptiX 4.1 brings new features, such as GPU-accelerated denoising, streamlining the rendering process, and decreasing the time needed for denoising tasks. Despite these advancements, the overall performance improvements in benchmark scores over version 4.0 are minimal, indicating only slight enhancements in efficiency (as you will notice in the results below).

The results show that the CPU-only setup consistently outperformed the GPU-enhanced configuration in all tests, as in version 4.0. Specifically, the CPU-only mode achieved 493.167 samples/min in Monster, 356.36 samples/min in Junkshop, and 250.87 samples/min in Classroom, compared to the GPU-assisted scores of 428.90, 269.39, and 238.58 samples/min respectively.
