Re: how to montior power consumption of a disk in iDRAC

Hello

I'm not aware of a way to monitor the power usage of a disk drive. In the iDRAC there is a Power/Thermal section. That is all of the power reporting I'm aware. I installed a SMART monitoring application to see if the disk reports this information. It was not reported by the SMART, but there was additional information, like disk temperature, that was not reported in our monitoring applications.

Hi Daniel

Thanks for replying back to my post.

if it is not possible with iDRAC Is there any other way that we could monitor the power consumption of a disk drive on the DELL 14th generation server?

Thanks and Regards
