Rack and Power Management

I have installed RPM software ver 1.1 on four ML350 G2 servers each connected serially to their own T1500XR UPS. I installed all three agents on each server, as I want each server to manage its own power config. However, I notice when the Management server service is running, the CPU utilization spikes to 100% every three or four seconds. This happens on all four servers.

My question is this - is there a fix for the CPU spike?

If I am not mistaken, I believe the management server has to be running to ensure the servers shut down gracefully if the UPS loses power. If this is the case, I would have to have the management server running local on the servers.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Rack and Power Management

There were updates for this problem on "other" models of UPS's... but not the T1500XR.

Have you considered upgrading to Power Manager 3.1?

There are flavors of the software for Linux to choose from.

Here is a link to the product documentation:

Here are the whitepapers:

Re: Rack and Power Management

Thanks John. I installed the Power Manager ver 3.1 and it is doing a much better job of keeping the CPU usage in check.

I find it strange, however, that the Rack and Power Manager software would have such a huge impact on CPU utilization.

But that doesn't matter, since the regular power manager software looks like it should work fine.

Thanks again!
