Is there a way to have cooling (CFD) be truly dynamic in DCO ?

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by Eric Clark on 2018-07-27


I have no end of trouble getting DCO to show a reasonable representation of reality with regards to cooling. 

It seems as if the whole system relies upon staticly configured manual entries. 

ie: cabinet is presumed to pass X cfm per kW

However, I have cabinets with exhaust fans in the chimneys - and the fans are metered, and in the system  -  DCO should use the real time data 

Additionally - I have set the CFM of my  CRAC units - I would expect the system to understand that the CRAC units CFM should equal the discharge from your supply tiles , perhaps minus some percentage for leakage... but that doesn't seem to be the case,

In my case - the presumption of the cabinets air flow is massively imbalanced compared to the CRAC units known air flow - 

am I just missing some switch that says - "make this work like reality" or something ?

Hi Eric,

I would try using/associating some temperature sensors, and then running the 3D view based on "Measured plane":

that may provide us more realistic simulation of the temperature map.

Kind regards
