Title: MONITORING OF SHARED SERVER SET POWER SUPPLY UNITS
Abstract:
Power monitoring in a server set that has a shared power supply system that includes multiple power supply unit sets that each provide power to the server set. A controller monitors power usage of the server set, and evaluates the monitored power usage against the power supply capability of each of the power supply unit sets. Based on the evaluation, the controller can detect when a particular power supply unit set is no longer capable of solely providing all of the power that the server set is consuming or anticipated to consume, and then reduce power accordingly so that the particular power supply unit set could provide such power.
