This is a read-only library of available products you can select from and add to the customizable list of genomes and use in your data center infrastructure, provided you have the necessary user rights. (Genome Library pane to the right in the image). The Genome Library database is extended with thousands of additional measured server power profiles, as well as storage and switch specifications. This continuously growing asset library enables IT Advisor to determine power consumption without the aid of hardware sensors.
You can open the genome library and drag and drop equipment directly into your customizable list of genomes and rearrange products.
This is an editable list of selected products you can use in your data center infrastructure. (Genomes pane to the left in the image).
You can right-click to add, rename, or delete categories and to copy or delete products. Multiple users can apply changes to the genomes at the same time.
The Genomes pane lists all available equipment and allows you to add floor and rack-mountable equipment to a rack or any type of room. It has dynamic search functionality: As you start typing in the Search box, the list shows all equipment that contains the typed characters.
