In the following example, M1Ph1 12.3A means that there is a 12.3 amp current measurement on module 1, phase 1 of the PDU. A --.-A amp measurement means that the PDU module is not available (has nothing connected to it or does not exist).
For more information about syslog, refer to the Oracle Solaris documentation and the syslogd(1M) and syslog.conf(4) man pages.
You can set the PDU to send system log (syslog) messages to up to four systems on the network. syslog is the standard UNIX system logging utility, which monitors critical system events and configuration changes. These syslog messages are sent to the systems using user datagram protocol (UDP) port 514.
Here is an example PDU syslog message:
PDU-Values: M1Ph1 12.3A M1Ph2 12.1A M1Ph3 12.2A M2Ph1 0.0A M2Ph2 0.0A M2Ph3 0.0A M3Ph1 --.-A M3Ph2 --.-A M3Ph3 --.-A
You are prompted to log in as an admin user. By default, both the admin user name and password is admin.
If you set the duration for 12 hours, the PDU sends syslog messages every 12 hours.
If you set hours to 2 and minutes to 27, the PDU sends syslog messages every 2 hours and 27 minutes.
If checked, and if you set threshold parameter values (see Set Threshold Parameter Levels (Original PDU)), the metering unit sends alarm messages when threshold parameter values are reached.
Possible syslog alarm messages include:
A Dead-Trap message is sent after a PDU power cycle (power is removed and reapplied).
ModuleNum/PhaseNum corresponds to the PDU's module number and phase number.
The following log entries show the differences between a reset and a power fail:
0000-00-00 00:00:00 System: PDU-StartUp after PowerFail 0000-00-00 00:00:00 System: PDU-StartUp
