Energy monitoring provides information about the power consumption data of a Managed System, along with generated heat from inlet, CPU, and baseboards. These details are helpful in finding whether a system is overloaded, is generating more heat, or use more power than expected. The metrics also give where the load can be distributed.
This metric data is collected at 30-seconds interval when the energy monitoring flag is set to true. These metrics are stored in the HMC for 30 minutes and are then purged from the system. The raw data is used to generate Processed and Aggregated metrics by further rolling up.
Energy monitoring is supported by Managed Systems having FSP level 860.1 and above.
