PDU / PSU enhancements

Juge 6 years ago updated by Aleksandr Zamorsky 4 months ago 6

The datacenter / rack view of 9.3 is really great, but I would suggest some enhancements regarding the power and PDU management:
For what I experience, the relation is as following:

Wall Power Outlet(s) <---> PDU Inlet(s) | PDU Outlet(s) <---> PSU Inlets (Power Supply Inlet(s) of Computers/Monitors/Network Devices, etc.


Currently there seems to be no connection between the Rack PDUs and Equipment PSU possible.

So here my ideas:


Create types Inlets and Outles, add them to PDU/PSU types and make connections between them possible: this should be roughly equivalent to the network 'Ethernet port' type.


And some minor other issues with the current implementation:

1) Plug = Outlet? And what does the 'Number' characteristic of a PDU plug mean?

2) It is not possible to add external links to PDUs

It will be very useful to have information about connections on PDU - which server we have connected with which power port. Could you implement this functionality into next release?

I hope you will implement this, connections between PSU / PDU / equipments would be very usefull

Hello ! I'm very interessed about an update on this function. Thanks for all.

It's a great idea for big numbers of racks with a lot of connected diveces, instead of marking wires, or sockets.

I'm looking forward to it.
