Heat generation

Hi I have a DL580 & DL380 both with 2 CPU and each with 2 GB RAM. I have 10 HDD combined. I want to calculate the heat generated by them as the aircon is not working fine.
can anyone guide me in this matter. Thanks

donkarnash,
the DL380 is rated at 2800 BTUs/hour and the DL580 is rated at 4000 BTUs/hour.

I hope this helps.

Good Luck - Tim

Re: Heat generation

Tim,
Thanks a lot for your reply. The aircon guys say that is way too much. Where can I find that documented so I can shut them up.
Please let me know

Re: Heat generation

donkarnash,

David points out a valid bit of info, the manuals give a "maximum" amount, what the server has the potential to put out. Your number should be less, dependent on your configuration.


David, do you have a link with this kind of information on other servers, such as the 9000 series PA/IPR servers?
