image:Icon for Oracle ILOM

You can define a power capping policy in Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) to enforce a power target limit.

Before You Begin

  • Log in to Oracle ILOM. For instructions on how to log in to Oracle ILOM, see Launch and Log In to Oracle ILOM.

  • Set a power target limit on the managed server prior to setting the Power Capping Policy. For instructions, see Set Power Target Limit Property on Server SP.

  • Ensure that you have Admin (a) user role privileges in Oracle ILOM.

    Note -  Some systems do not support power capping. For these systems, the commands and or the web elements are not present.

This procedure provides both web and command-line interface (CLI) instructions for the server service processor (SP).

  • To define a power capping policy for the Oracle ILOM-managed server:
    • From the Web interface:
      1. Click Power Management > Limit.
      2. In the Advanced Settings panel, select one of the Policy options: Soft Cap (default) or Hard Cap
      3. Select a policy violation action in the Violation Actions list box: None or Hard Power Off
      4. Click Save to apply your changes.
    • From the CLI to set a power capping policy, type:

      set /SP/powermgmt/budget pendingtimelimit=[ default|integer between 1 and 99999|0 ] pendingviolation_actions=[ none | hardpoweroff ] commit_pending=true
