Enclosure layout design
Devices positioning on enclosure
Rear panel support
- Available for both racks and enclosures
- Automatically shows occupancy on the opposite panel
- Keep an eye on your racks and enclosures occupancy rate in real time
- Distinct indicators for front and rear panels
Keep an eye on your racks power consumption by tracking contracted power versus actual power reading.
Keep an eye on your racks & enclosures weight capacity by tracking their cumulated weight versus the maximum allowed by the element itself or the server room specs.
Optional consistency checks are made on elements during creation / update:
- Overlapping elements
- Malpositioned elements (outside rack’s / enclosure’s grid)
- Total elements’ height exceeds rack’s / enclosure’s capacity
Comes with a bunch of audit rules to keep your datacenter vision clear:
- Production elements should have position set when attached to a rack or enclosure
- Positioned elements should be attached to a rack or enclosure
- Positioned elements should have Rack units attribute set
- Positioned elements should not overlap another one
- Positioned elements should not be outside its rack’s or enclosure’s (exceed height or malpositioned)
Two new object classes to better describe your racks and enclosures:
- ReservedSlot: Reserve space in a rack / enclosure for any future usage or element.
- MiscEquipmentSlot: Mark space as used for patch panel or cable management for example.
You have some custom classes (not derivating from DatacenterDevice) that you would like to use in racks and enclsoures? No problem! Just register them in the custom_device_classes config. parameter, make sure they have the required attributes (see documentation) and they will automatically appear. 👌
Manage devices with non standard size / positioning such as USB drives, vertical PDUs, non rackable devices, … Just mark them as such to make them appaer in the bottom-right panel of their host, easy as pie!
- Us order: Reverse Us order per rack / enclosure to fit your set-up
- Enclosure layout: Either display enclosure’s elements or just the number of elements in it
