Power Budgeting

The power requirements for different components in the Sun Blade 6000 system are provided through the power conversion calculator. Use the power calculator for estimating the power consumption of your system:

The intent of the power calculator is to provide guidance for estimating the electrical and heat loads for typical operating conditions. The Max power results shown in the calculator (at 100% workload) represent server module power consumption measurements with CPUs at 100% utilization running SPECjbb2005. The Idle power results shown in the calculator represent power consumption measurements taken from server modules with operating systems booted and stabilized, yet running at minimal utilization.

Results shown are representative of measurements taken with room temperatures below 25o C. Actual power consumption will vary with application type, application utilization and ambient temperature. Whenever possible, use actual measurements.

Use these specifications for planning purposes only. The system’s actual power requirements depend on which components are included in your configuration. Use Oracle ILOM to verify the system’s actual power requirements. Refer to the Oracle ILOM documentation.
