The Power Management Policy is enabled in Software Release 1.1 on the Sun Server X3-2. This policy controls the power consumption (or power usage) for the server. Oracle ILOM provides configurable properties for power limiting and power granting on the server. Oracle ILOM provides power capping policy properties that help enforce the system target power limit by enabling system administrators to set soft caps with grace period and violation actions, or to set hard caps to keep the peak permitted power consumption under the target power limit.
For further information, refer to the power management topics in the Oracle ILOM 3.1 Configuration and Maintenance Guide.
