Server Power Usage

Dashboard for viewing your PowerEdge r710 usgae over time. Should also work with other systems using the iDRAC6 that expose the same information. Requires Influxdb, Telegraf, and a supported system.

The boxes on the right will break down the total usage and cost over the selction, lasr 24 hours, last week, and last 30 days. This makes it easy to see the costs over time.

Setup

I created a post explaining how to set this up here: https://skylar.tech/graphing-poweredge-r710-power/

Collector Configuration Details

Here is an example of the telegraf config (view my post here for more information):

# # Read metrics from the bare metal servers via IPMI
 [[inputs.ipmi_sensor]]
   ## optionally specify the path to the ipmitool executable
   # path = "/usr/bin/ipmitool"
   ##
   ## optionally force session privilege level. Can be CALLBACK, USER, OPERATOR, ADMINISTRATOR
   # privilege = "ADMINISTRATOR"
   ##
   ## optionally specify one or more servers via a url matching
   ##  [username[:password]@][protocol[(address)]]
   ##  e.g.
   ##    root:passwd@lan(127.0.0.1)
   ##
   ## if no servers are specified, local machine sensor stats will be queried
   ##
   servers = ["username:password@lanplus(192.168.1.11)"]

   ## Recommended: use metric 'interval' that is a multiple of 'timeout' to avoid
   ## gaps or overlap in pulled data
   interval = "30s"

   ## Timeout for the ipmitool command to complete
   timeout = "20s"
