RAS Integration and Validation Guide for the Intel® Xeon® Processor E7- v3 Family - Error Reporting Through EMCA2

The document provides Enhanced Machine Check Architecture Gen 2 (EMCA2) RAS feature’s software (BIOS/Firmware, OS) and hardware integration guidance and validation methodologies which are applied in the Intel® Xeon® Processor E7 – v3 based systems (code named Haswell EX). Integration guides in this document contain EMCA2 initialization and runtime procedures including how hardware to log errors and trigger specific SMI to BIOS/SMM handler as firmware first model then how BIOS/firmware reports enhance error logs to system software through Industrial specification ACPI data structure.
