In this video, Russ Long demonstrates the different ways we can verify or monitor our Distributed Power Management configurations. Learn how to monitor a cluster that has DPM enabled.
- [Instructor] So in this lab we're going to take a look…at how we would monitor the actions of DRS…when we are concerned with Distributed Power Management,…or DPM.…So we've configured DPM, we enabled it.…How do we know anything's actually happening?…So here we can see we are in our data center.…We are going to select the inventory object…DRS Cluster, which is where DPM is enabled.…I'm going to expand that out…and you're going to see something glaring…right now right in your face.…
On the left hand side in the inventory object pane,…you see that one of our hosts…has a blue moon right next to it,…or a moon on a blue sky.…211 has been put into standby mode…by Distributed Power Management.…It has decided that we no longer…need these resources in the cluster for it to function.…As we talked about, this saves on power,…overhead, all sorts of things.…All sorts of goodies are involved…but let's take a look at why it decided to do that.…
So first thing I want to do is go to Related Objects here;…another place where if we have tons and tons…
