Configuring cooling impact preferences
You can configure the thresholds for impact so the system reacts to impacts that are important to your physical infrastructure.Together with a virtual host configuration, the impact analysis on virtual machine hosts feature can be used to put impacted hosts in maintenance mode, preventing failure.
The IT impact simulation enables you to simulate the effect of potential power or cooling failures.
You can define custom criteria for when a server is marked as impacted in the system.
- Select Tools> Preferences> Cooling Impact.
- Edit the value of the Maximum Inlet Temperature to modify the temperature thresholds of the impact. As long as a cooling failure does not cause the temperature to exceed the configured threshold, virtual servers will not be migrated in response to the failure.
Simulating impact of a potential failure also behaves in the same way.
If you select No limit, the system will not react to cooling impact.
