The Rack Visualization module in DCImanager helps to plan the placement of equipment, monitor its operation, quickly identify problems, and take an inventory. With it you can quickly find and reserve free units for your equipment or for colocation.Buy Free trial
Interactive map shows the location and status of the equipment
Free, occupied, and reserved units
Equipment errors and connection status
Thermal indicators and their exceedance
With the help of a map it is convenient to plan the placement of devices, check the condition of infrastructure and troubleshooting, and take inventory.
With Rack Visualization, you will always know exactly where each device is and what state it is in, while also being able to manage its placement
DCImanager visualizes the location of equipment in a rack. On the interactive map you can see in which unit the server, switch, PDU or other equipment is installed. An interactive map is formed from the data that administrators entered when adding equipment to the platform
Reservation of units
If you are planning to install equipment or provide colocation, the Rack Visualization Module will help you easily find free space for a device and reserve it, while specifying the duration and purpose of the reserve.
Units that are used for wiring or other technical purposes can be marked as service units.
Equipment located outside of units (e.g., vertical PDUs or devices mounted on top of a rack) can be marked as 0-unit. It helps to always know where the device is, even if it is installed in a non-standard way.
Managing most types of equipment
DCImanager will show all types of devices placed in the rack:
- Servers, blade servers and chassis.
- Switches and routers.
- Power distributors.
- UPS and PDU.
- Any custom device types (if you use the Equipment Inventory Management module).
Monitoring of server and network equipment in racks
Rack map shows connections, equipment errors, temperature sensor readings, and rack voltage.
Alerts on the status of equipment operation
DCImanager polls the BMC sensors every five minutes, checking the status of RAM, CPU. In addition, when new hardware is installed or if the server gets a new user, the platform runs automatic diagnostics. If equipment errors are detected, the administrator will see a message on the rack card and receive an email alert.
The rack map shows the connections of the servers and their status (enabled, disabled, connection error). The administrator can go to connection management, open a PDU card or console.
Power consumption per rack
You can see the power consumption and load per rack as well as for each piece of equipment. By default the data is updated every 5 minutes, or you can set a different interval.
If you provide colocation, you can bill for power and traffic. To do this, just connect BILLmanager or another billing system.
Rack heat map
In heatmap mode, DCImanager shows the temperature of the equipment. The data is taken from the BMC sensors and checked against the norm. If the temperature is exceeded, the equipment on the map will change color and the platform will send a notification about the problem.
