The Question is:
What are the power requirements for an AlphaServer 800 when planning a UPS? Is
there any software available for OpenVMS (eg PowerChute) that will provide
autoshutdown if power is transfered to UPS?
The Answer is :
The first part of the question is answered in the Systems and Options
Catalog (SOC) for older systems -- see the OpenVMS FAQ for pointers to
the SOC archives -- and in the QuickSpecs for new or recently-retired
systems. The QuickSpecs for newer AlphaServer systems (current and
retired) are available from the AlphaServer website.
The brute-force approach involves examining and totalling the wattage
ratings of the various power supplies involved, of course.
For information on UPS software, please see the OpenVMS FAQ.
