You can control the amount of power an Oracle blade server module consumes by setting the blade slot grant limit property on the chassis monitoring module (CMM).

Before You Begin

  • Log in to Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM).

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

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

Note -  The default blade slot grant limit property in Oracle ILOM is 1200 watts (the maximum slot limit).

Note -  The blade slot grant limit should not be set lower than the wattage already granted by the CMM to the blade slot. Setting the blade slot grant limit to 0 prevents an installed blade server module from powering on.

This procedure provides both web and command-line interface (CLI) instructions for the CMM.

  • To define a blade slot grant limit in an Oracle blade chassis system:
    • From the Web interface:
      1. Click Power Management > Allocation.
      2. In the Power Grants table, select a blade server module and click Edit.
      3. Enable one of the following options for the Power Grant Limit Policy: Slot Maximum (default, 1200 watts) or Custom

        If Custom is enabled, enter a grant limit value for the chassis blade slot in watts.

      4. Click Save to apply your changes.
    • From the CLI to set a power grant limit for a blade slot, type:

      set /CMM/powermgmt/powerconf/ bladeslots/BL n grant_limit=[ watts ]

      Where watts represents the blade slot power limit.
