Using Power Management

To use Power Management (PM), you first need to set the PM mode in the Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 3.0 firmware. This section summarizes the information that you need to be able to use PM with the Oracle VM Server for SPARC software.

For more information about ILOM, see the following:

The power mode is the setting that governs system power usage at any point in time. The following power modes are supported, assuming that the underlying platform has implemented PM features:

Following are the PM features:

For instructions on configuring the power mode by using the ILOM 3.0 firmware CLI, see “Monitoring Power Consumption” in the Sun Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 3.0 CLI Procedures Guide.
