Server Power usage - Watts to Amps
Posted on 2013-11-08
I have a rack of servers which I am trying to consolidate. I have an APC meter which is not configured, but it does give us a amp reading.
Anyhow, I was looking at the Hp specs and it seems like my most powerful server (DL380 G4) uses 575 WATTS. I tried to convert this to amps using several calculators i found via search engines..but i don't trust the output of the calculators - or maybe my math is not correct.
How can I calculate how much amperage my servers are using based on Hp specs sheets?
although I have an apc meter, at the moment I cannot configure this in order to read exact readings due to the fact that I am far away from my data center.
