shows the aggregate power for all associated outlet groups. For PDU outlet groups, you can also monitor the amperage being used by the outlet group in amperes or as a percentage of the outlet group’s total amperage capacity. You can view these values two different ways. One way is to navigate to the outlet group (for example, navigate to the PDU containing it, right-click and choose Related Resources>Power Outlet Group), right-click on the outlet group, choose “Properties” and then select the Active Energy tab. The values on this tab are retrieved when the tab is created; they aren’t refreshed while the tab is open. Another method is to navigate to a table containing the outlet group and choose Actions>Columns. Next, select “Amperage Used” and “Amperage Capacity” from the available columns list and press “OK.” This results in two new columns being added to the table. These two columns are refreshed as new data is available. Energy Cost Calculation AEM provides a cost calculator to help determine the cost of energy needed to run your data center. You must select a time interval to monitor, supply the price-per-kilowatt hour and supply a multiplier to account for the cost of cooling the resource. This information, along with the data metered for the selected time interval, is used to determine the energy cost. The cost calculator can be used for a resource that’s directly metered, a resource that’s externally metered or a PDU. As you can see, AEM’s rich support for external metering devices greatly expands your options for analyzing the power usage and environmental conditions of your data center. You can monitor IBM resources as well as non-IBM resources. You can monitor IT equipment as well as non-IT equipment. Simple interfaces are provided for defining metering device associations and for monitoring the metered data. Janet Weber is a developer on the AEM team. She can be reached at jeweber@us.ibm.com.
