Monitoring Enhanced PDUs

For enhanced PDUs, there are four ways you can monitor how much power, energy, and current the equipment attached to the PDU uses, as well as the voltage level powering the equipment. You also can configure the metering unit to send messages to systems on the network.

Note -  Compact PDUs do not contain metering units, so you cannot monitor the current of equipment connected to them.

The following table lists the tasks necessary to configure and use the PDU metering unit.

Understand the relationship between the metering unit interface and the PDU outlet groups.
Access the metering unit from a system on the network.
Set the voltage and current threshold values.
Monitor the power, energy, current, and voltage levels.
Change the metering unit interface settings.
Enable and configure SNMP settings.
View the metering unit firmware version and update the firmware.
Use the PDU metering unit's LCD screen.
Set the PDU time.
Check the PDU event logging page.
Restore the PDU metering unit's settings back to the factory default settings.
