Managing Power

From AVNOC

Power Management

This feature allow a command to be executed by an Agent on the customers network.

The Agent long polls the hosting portal to see if any commands exist.

If a command exists then the agent executes the command on the sequenced power supply that support SNMP to boot a specific outlet.

This is a powerful first line diagnostics to solve a service problem prior to sending a service technician.

Setup a SNMP Capable Power System

Each manufacturer has their own way of setting up the sequencing.

Some of the common needs are:

  • SNMP community set to public
  • A permanent IP in the network
  • Access from the agent
