DCO Power Capacity and Portlets

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by Brian Meade on 2018-03-23


Hello,

I have a question concerning DCO 8.2.2 and StruxureWare Portal 1.3.7. I have configured several portlets concerning power capacity and due to estimated load and the lack of measured data the power consumption is listed at 100%. However, I have measured PDU(s) and UPS systems.

  1.  If a measured UPS is associated with the UPS(s) of a location within DCO will the portal display the measured value if or is the portlet only using the estimated load values? 
  2. If not is there an alternative portlet that can give a percentage of total power consumption? If not my only option is to use DCE sensor values which are ok, but only show the measured value and not total available capacity in comparison to consumption.

Hi Brian,

You may want to use 'Predicted Power' to get DCO Power capacity to use measured power whenever available, instead of estimated load.

To achieve predicted power to be as close as measured power, set the lower & upper threshold as 1.

See here to read more on Predicted Power

Jef Faridi I have somewhat same concern the power capacity is calculated based on the nameplate of the equipment's

Mobily has more than 10,000 equipment's in one data center, it is impossible to get the accurate values of each equipment and that is why the power capacity gets wrong

Please i need your support in this matter that how can we get the accurate power capacity as well as cooling capacity

PS: we have sensors on ups,pdu,rectifiers and on power panels but when we connected the power path and because of the wrong nameplate KW value on equipment's the power is exceeding on ups,pdu and power panel.

There is a huge difference between the sensor value and the actual value from nameplate

Pls suggest

Thanks
