How to View Power Management Properties Using the CLI

  1. Log in to the server node SP by opening an ssh connection at a terminal window:

    $ ssh root@SPIPaddress

    Password: password


    • SPIPaddress is the IP address of the server's service processor.

    • password is the password for the account. The default password for the root account is changeme. If you choose to use another user account, make sure it has admin privileges.

    The ILOM CLI prompt appears (->).

  2. Enter the following command:

    -> show /SP/powermgmt

    Example output for node 0 might look like:

    -> show /SP/powermgmt
            actual_power = 56
            permitted_power = 190
            allocated_power = 190
            available_power = 380
            threshold1 = 0
            threshold2 = 0


    • actual_power displays the current system input power (in watts) consumption.

    • permitted_power displays the maximum power consumption (in watts) expected for the system.

    • available_power displays the input power capacity (in watts) that is available to system components. The CMM uses the available_power number listed in node 0 to determine how much power to allocate to the entire blade.

      Note - When logged into node 0, the available_power listed is actually the combined available power for the entire blade (node 0 plus node 1). To calculate the available power for node 0, subtract the available_power number listed when logged into node 1 from the total available_power number listed for node 0.

  3. Alternately, you can view total power consumed by the system by entering the command:

    -> show /SYS/VPS

    Example output might look like:

    -> show /SYS/VPS
            type = Power Unit
            ipmi_name = VPS
            class = Threshold Sensor
            value = 69.400 Watts
            upper_nonrecov_threshold = N/A
            upper_critical_threshold = N/A
            upper_noncritical_threshold = N/A
            lower_noncritical_threshold = N/A
            lower_critical_threshold = N/A
            lower_nonrecov_threshold = N/A
            alarm_status = cleared

    The value of /SYS/VPS is equivalent to the value of /SYS/powermgmt actual_power.
