Hardware Sentry - Site

This dashboard exposes the energy usage and cost as well as the carbon emissions of a site (a data center or a server room) and its monitored hosts. It also provides data-driven recommendations to optimize the data center's ambient temperature and reduce cooling costs (dashboard 2 out of 3).


Note: Hardware Sentry is free-to-use for Prometheus and Grafana users. Support plans are available.

Why using Hardware Sentry and its Grafana dashboards?

Hardware Sentry:

  • supports over 100 platforms from the oldest to the more recent ones: Cisco, Dell EMC, IBM, Hitachi, HP, NetApp, Pure, etc. See full list.
  • is a 100% software solution for energy usage monitoring (NO PDUs required).

Key Features

  • Hardware Monitoring: Detect and even predict failures in processors, memory modules, disks, network cards, controllers, power supplies, fans, temperature sensors, etc
  • IT Energy Usage: Assess the power consumption of all monitored systems, even those which are not equipped with power sensors
  • Carbon Emissions: Accurately determine the carbon emissions of your data centers and observe their evolution over time to ensure you are on track with your commitments to sustainability
  • Data center temperature optimization: Accurately determine the maximum acceptable temperature of your server rooms and estimate the potential savings resulting from increasing the temperature by a few degrees.

Use Cases

  • Detect all hardware failures
  • Report the energy usage and carbon emissions of your data center and its monitored hosts
  • Spot the top consumer sites
  • Optimize the ambient temperature of the server room
  • Estimate potential savings per site
