So after I input the specs it shows the following...

Total System Input power requirement (W) = 360
Total System Input current requirement (A) = 3.3 (is this what I'm looking for? Amperage
Total System BTU/Hr = 1226
Total System VA Rating / UPS selection = 376
Total System Leakage Current (mA) UPS/PDU/Circuit Breaker Selection = 0.41
Total System Peak Inrush Current (A) 3mS UPS/PDU/Circuit Breaker Selection = 14 (Does this mean this requires a 14AMP Breaker?)

Since I simply was asked what's my total Amperage, if I had 5 servers do I answer 3.3 * 5 = 16.5 total AMP's?

or

Since it shows Total system Peak Inrush Current = 14, just for 1 server. Do I write 14 * 5 = 70 total AMP's?
