Power peak Reading

Hello,

I received an alert on a R620 Poweredge server that i cannot explain.

In the statistics i see a Power Peak of 64868 W (221394 BTU/hr) this looks extreem to me.

Does anybody knows what can cause these extreme values?

is it perhaps a bug in firmware ?

The alert from OME reads:

The system board consumption current is greater than the upper critical threshold

RE: Power peak Reading

TechnicalEngineeringKLM,

Those numbers sound very high. Could you verify if the server is currently up to date on BIOS, iDrac, Lifecycle Controller, as well as the raid controller? I ask as those devices being out of date can cause a large portion of the issues you will see with the server. What are the current versions you are seeing on the R620?

Let me know
