Two possible solutions

by georgeou In reply to CISCO IOS and power usage

Only the modern blade servers in modern blade chassis have that level of reporting.

What kind of device are you talking about?

If all you want to do is figure out how much power he needs to allocate, there are two simple solutions.

1. Get a power strip with a built in AMP meter. Those are pretty slick and it will tell you how close to the 15 AMP limit you're at.

2. They have non-intrusive power clamp meters where you don't need to unplug the server or appliance. You just clamp the cable and it tells you how much amperage is flowing. This lets you measure everything.

Depends on the blade vendor

HP's class C chassis has management tools where you can even set power quotas per blade. They have one of the more energy efficient solutions I've seen. Take a look at this.
