what does avg/peak power output mean?

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by ziqiang wu on 2017-04-28


Dear experts,

We've extracted data from legacy system to DCO. There is one type of device which is rpdu provide one measure of real-time power. However, in DCO, we can see 2 power values - avg&peak power.

 

What does these 2 values stand for and why will it display 2 values although we extract only 1 power value?

 

Thanks,

Ziqiang

Hi Ziqiang,

As described in the following page, the measured peak and average values (in DCO) are based on the the configuration settings (30 days by default):

About Peak and Average Power Data Retrieval from StruxureWare Data Center Expert

Please notice that the displayed measurements in DCO, power peak and average, they are not real-time values but as mentioned they are based on the defined time interval.

What is your integrated external system, are you getting the measurements from DCE? or another integration, such as ETL?

Kind regards

hi Jef,

We extract from Siemens bms via etl. Both I and the customer thought that dco should display the real-time power value. So it is a little bit surprised for me to know that dco could only display the power from a historical period.

Is there any workaround we can deal with if we want to display the real-time power measurement or Is there a way that we could convince the customer that avg/peak power is better than the real-time value?

 

Thanks a lot,

ziqiang

Hi Ziqiang,

Hopefully I'm not disappointing you, but as far as I know, there is no way (simply not supported) to display real-time power measurements on DCO. DCO is not designed to function as a monitoring device (such as DCE), by design it can display your historical peak & avg. power data.

Kind regards
