It may be possible to rig up a solution that allows you to do this, but your expense will be more than "just" an EUR 3000 UPS. An APC UPS configuration that would supply 4.6 kWh is the SMX3000HV with four SMX120BP external battery packs. The list price is $4,261.00 USD (EUR 3666.01), and it takes up 20U of rack space (4U for the UPS itself and 4U for each ...

I'm going to give an HP-specific answer here, since the OP is asking about the ProLiant product line. Let's use the example of an HP DL360p Gen8 (also applies to G6 and G7 servers): You have the option to configure the Redundant Power Supply Mode in the HP Rom-Based Setup Utility (press F9 at boot) with: Balanced Mode High Efficiency Mode Of the two ...

Every server is different. Some automatically balance between the two and some use the primary PSU exclusively until it fails and then switches to the secondary PSU. In most cases there is a bios option to configure how the server treats the PSU's. If for some reason you don't have that option you can find out by putting a clamp ammeter on each power cable ...

I buy blades and you do this at the blade-enclosure level and there seems to be more options but essentials it depends :)

You can see power management informaton from there. On my side I can see the current amp per PS, the watt, btu/hr, total energy consumed and some reading for the systemboard power current ...

There are ways to monitor the power coming in but the question becomes price and you would still probably need an electrician to do some of the work. If you are looking for something short term have an electrician connect a logging power meter to your supply side. I have not worked with these directly but I know electricians who have, Fluke makes some ...

While not the direct "here's you issue" answer you were hoping for, here's my suggestion. It appears that while noble, your quest to find out what is wrong isn't going to be solved by you quickly. You can do like others have suggested and try and log anything you can and hope for a pattern to emerge. I like derobert's suggestion of hiring someone to ...
