Working with branch circuit monitoring
When you have configured the Branch Circuit Monitoring, you can work with the Data Center Operation: Capacity features in the same way as if you had configured measured values at rack PDU level.
Alarms on a breaker module in the PDU, RDP, or PP display as an issue on the entire PDU, RDP, or PP. The impact of a failure displays as if all rack PDUs connected to the power distribution are at risk, even if the failure really only impacts the rack PDU connected to the particular breaker.
When collecting multiple measurements for one component in the floor layout, alarms on a breaker module in an additional device do not display on the associated PDU, RDP, or PP. These alarms only display on the device in the Unassociated Devices view and are not included in the impact analysis.
