There are several different power values associated to my racks in Hyperview. How can I tell which power value is the correct one or configure Hyperview to use a different value?
Rack power in Hyperview is calculated from a variety of different sensors. These sensors can either be manually configured, discovered automatically, or calculated by the system. To view the sensors and their values in Hyperview navigate to a rack, open the properties menu, and select sensors.
Supported Rack Power sensors and their descriptions:
Rack Total Power
User defined sensor that is used in location power calculations. Since different rack power calculation values may be available for each rack, you can assign one of them to be the primary value. To do this, navigate to the properties page for the rack, scroll down to the power section, and select a value for the Rack Total Power Setting. The options for this setting are the following Rack Total Power sensor types.
Rack Total Power Based on Linked Power Sensors
Calculates power values based on user linked sensors from direct sensors in other devices. Link a power sensor to a rack and this value will begin calculations.
Rack Total Power Based on Power Consuming Devices
Calculates power based on the power consuming devices within the rack. This value comes from both direct sensors and manual sensors from devices automatically.
Rack Total Power Based on Power Providing Device Output Total Power
Calculates power based on the power providing devices within the rack. This value comes from both direct sensors and manual sensors from devices automatically.
If you are not seeing any power values for these different sensor types, then that typically means Hyperview has not discovered any power information for devices that live inside that rack. Run a discovery on the power providers and the power consumers within the rack and Hyperview will begin populating the power values.
