Outlet Power Monitoring Solutions for Server Racks, Server Rooms & Data Centers
What is Outlet-Level Power Monitoring?
Outlet level power monitoring, through rack-based PDUs, provides unprecedented visibility into power consumption. For instance, instead of aggregate current draw across an entire PDU, users can narrow down to individual outlets and the specific power draw of the devices connected to them.
There are two types of outlet level power monitoring; remote outlet monitoring, which measures power consumption at individual outlets, and switched outlet monitoring, which does the same as the remote but also allows for remote reboot or power cycling of connected servers.
The manufacturer’s power management software can automatically archive and export power readings into reports. The ability to graph, log and trend this information provides users with actionable data to improve efficiency.
