c7000 Dynamic Power Savings Mode - Power Up Order?

Jon had a power-up sequence question for the c7000.




Can anyone advise if c7000 dynamic power mode has a set power-up order to use the PSUs when the load increases? 


Any info would be great.




Monty replied:




The Onboard Administrator Dynamic Power Savings mode is handled by a dedicated microcontroller.


If the feature is enabled – this microcontroller enables and disables pairs of power supplies – one on each ‘side’ to maximize the power subsystem efficiency.  The pair chosen for going to standby or active is highest bay number power supply on each side that is in the other power state.
