PDU Estimated Load does not include Sub(RPP) Panels

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by Gregory Garcia on 2019-04-04


Dear Community - We have a PDU with 4 local panels (A,B,C,D) and one remote power panel (RPP-E). Each of these 5 panels has a physical Branch Circuit Meter (BCM) installed.  We've discovered the BCMs into DCE and associated to DCO.  The issue I'm having is when hovering mouse over the PDU in DCO shows the BCM KW load but only for panels A,B,C,D.  Is there a way to make panel E KW be included in the PDU total?  Please see attached PDF with screen shots and further detail.

Hi Gregory Garcia, 

Sorry to leave you hanging. Let me see if I can get some eyes on this.

Thanks,

Hi Gregory,

I had a chance to verify this on your setup, agree with you - I would also have expected that the estimated load/measurements from the Sub panel should have been included in PDUs (PMM E) Estimated load calculations.

I have registered an enhancement case for this, so the codes could be reviewed.

Thanks,

Kind regards

Hi guys, We were told we should be able to sensor map a main meter device along side the BCM devices so long as the DDF matches DCO's required sensor ID labeling. Will be testing this to see if it actually works using DCE.
