Hostgroup-Electricity-Consumption-1

Description

This report displays statistics on the energy consumption of the hosts connected to an uninterrupted power supply (UPS).

How to interpret the report

For a given host group, reporting period and price per kilowatt-hour, the first table displays the cost, consumption, average power and maximum power reached for month N. A reminder of these values for the previous month is provided along with the evolution over time.

The two next graphs display the average power used per day of the month and per hour of the day. A comparison with the previous month also appears.

Note

If the host group contains more that five UPSs, only the four most energy-consuming ones will be displayed. A fifth category will include the remaining UPSs.

Finally, a graph is shown of the monthly cost year over year (YOY).
