Configure the device sensor measurements, or any known constants of the energy system, to ensure the configuration accurately reflects the live physical infrastructure of the system.
When configured, you can view the PUE/DCiE dial published to the PUE/DCiE Dashboard, showing the PUE/DCiE value based on the configured values for power entering the data center and IT load.
The PUE/DCiE Dashboard, available in the ITA web client Dashboard menu, shows measured data collected daily (midnight to midnight), also referred to as measurement sampling level 2, intermediate according to the Green Grid definitions.
