  • Patent number: 10551898
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method enables global throttling of processing nodes in a rack-configured information handling system (RIHS). A rack-level management controller receives power-usage data and operating parameters associated with processing nodes within separately-controlled blocks of the RIHS. A power subsystem of the RIHS regulates an amount of power supplied to the processing nodes of the RIHS based on the power-usage data and operating parameters for the processing nodes and a total amount of available power for distribution within the RIHS. In response to detecting a condition that reduces the total amount of available power for distribution within the IHS, the management controller autonomously initiates global throttling of the processing nodes within the IHS to reduce power consumption by at least one of the processing nodes. The global throttling is completed via a signal transfer over a select Ethernet cable wire to connected block controllers that control the processing nodes.

  • Publication number: 20170329383
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method enables rack-level predictive power capping and power budget allocation to processing nodes in a rack-based IHS. A rack-level management controller receives node-level power-usage data and settings from several block controllers, including current power consumption and an initial power budget for each node. A power consumption profile is generated based on the power-usage data for each node. A total available system power of the IHS is identified. A system power cap is determined based on the power consumption profiles and the total available system power. A current power budget is determined for each node based on an analysis of at least one of the power consumption profile, the initial power budget, the current power consumption, the system power cap, and the total available system power. A power subsystem regulates power budgeted and supplied to each node based on the power consumption profiles and the system power cap.

  • Patent number: 9485133
    Abstract: DCMI functionality is extended to platforms of a datacenter by integrating a management controller in each of plural platforms and interfacing the management controllers with a management server through a network. End users interface with platforms of the datacenter using DCMI protocol communications. The management server supports communication with management controllers by receiving DCMI messages and translating the DCMI messages to a text-based protocol for communications with the management controllers. In one embodiment, the management controllers push sensor information for their associated platforms to a sensor cache of the management server so that the management sensor references the cache to respond to DCMI requests for sensor information.
