  • Page 33: Configuring The System

    Configuring the system Power capping The HPE ProLiant XL family of products provides a power capping feature that operates at the server enclosure level. The capping feature can be activated with PPIC.EXE, a stand-alone utility that runs in the environment of one of the resident servers in the chassis to be power capped. After a power cap is set for the enclosure, all the resident servers in the enclosure will have the same uniform power cap applied to them until the cap is either modified or canceled.

    The wattage value, if provided, represents the total wattage to be allocated among all the chassis that are part of the baseline or partial baseline of a zone, if specified. This value is divided by the total maximum wattage established by the baseline to calculate a percentage cap value. This percentage is then multiplied against each chassis maximum wattage value to arrive at an appropriate cap value for that individual chassis.
