hi all,


I have a question about power redundancy mode in cat6500-AC3000watt


cat6500#sh power
system power redundancy mode = restricted power mode


i know about combined mode and redundant mode,

but unfamiliar with restricted power mode


is there anyone knows about this?

Hi Sanghee Han,


So “show power” is actually given you

“system power redundancy mode = redundant” and

restricted shown in the “show env” cooling section for fan-tray 1:

---

fan-tray 1:
   fan-tray 1 type: WS-C6509-E-FAN
   fan-tray 1 mode: Restricted-power
   fan-tray 1 fan-fail: OK

---


The "restricted" power is the default for the E-chassis.
The WS-C6506/9-E-FAN has two modes - Restricted-Power and High Power.
Restricted-power mode means that the Fan-Tray operates at lower rotating speed 
and it is enough for system’s per slots cooling (to keep temperature under thr).
 
Usually the fans in fan-tray will speed up if a fan has failed in the fan-tray or 
if there are a linecards in the chassis that requires higher cooling.
For example, in case of WS-X6708-10G modules in some slots, 
the chassis/fans will be running high-power mode.
 
The “show env [cooling]” will give you this info, 
with details on required fans CFM capacity for chassis and for each module.
 
Like in you case with 4 modules:
1    7600-SIP-400        265.02  6.31   265.02  6.31  on    on
2    WS-X6748-GE-TX      325.50  7.75   325.50  7.75  on    on
5    WS-SUP720-3B        282.24  6.72   282.24  6.72  on    on
6    WS-SUP720-3B        282.24  6.72   282.24  6.72  on    on
 
The cooling at 70 cfm fans rotating looks enough for setup, 
so fan-tray 1 is in default mode Restricted-power:
----------------- show environment ------------------
…  
fan-tray 1:
  fan-tray 1 type: WS-C6509-E-FAN
  fan-tray 1 mode: Restricted-power
  fan-tray 1 fan-fail: OK
… snip…
chassis per slot cooling capacity: 70 cfm ambient temperature: < 55C
  module 1 cooling requirement: 35 cfm
  module 2 cooling requirement: 70 cfm
  module 5 cooling requirement: 35 cfm
  module 6 cooling requirement: 35 cfm
 
And for example in case of the chassis w two WS-X6708-10G-3C in slots 1 and 2 
the fans will be running at high speed and
the output would looks similar to follow:
 
#show env cool    
fan-tray 1:
 fan-tray 1 type: WS-C6509-E-FAN
 fan-tray 1 mode: high-power <--
 fan-tray 1 fan-fail: OK
chassis per slot cooling capacity: 94 cfm ambient temperature: < 55C
 module 1 cooling requirement: 84 cfm  <<<<<
 module 2 cooling requirement: 84 cfm  <<<<<
 module 3 cooling requirement: 70 cfm
 module 4 cooling requirement: 70 cfm
 module 5 cooling requirement: 35 cfm
 module 6 cooling requirement: 35 cfm
 module 7 cooling requirement: 70 cfm
 module 8 cooling requirement: 70 cfm
 
 
 
Thanks,
Sergey

Hello!


Is it a newer C6500-E series chassis ?

If yes, than "restricted" power could be the default for E-series, but normally it is

shown in show end, show power for FAN-tray part only, like "fan-tray 1 mode: Restricted-power".


Thanks,

Sergey

Thanks for your answer.


then, i wonder how the cat65k-E operates power resource in restricted-power mode.


do you know about this?

Hi,


Could you post the full output of "show power", "show env" and clarify which ios version is it.


Thanks,

Hi Sanghee Han,


So “show power” is actually given you

“system power redundancy mode = redundant” and

restricted shown in the “show env” cooling section for fan-tray 1:

---

fan-tray 1:
   fan-tray 1 type: WS-C6509-E-FAN
   fan-tray 1 mode: Restricted-power
   fan-tray 1 fan-fail: OK

---


The "restricted" power is the default for the E-chassis.
The WS-C6506/9-E-FAN has two modes - Restricted-Power and High Power.
Restricted-power mode means that the Fan-Tray operates at lower rotating speed 
and it is enough for system’s per slots cooling (to keep temperature under thr).
 
Usually the fans in fan-tray will speed up if a fan has failed in the fan-tray or 
if there are a linecards in the chassis that requires higher cooling.
For example, in case of WS-X6708-10G modules in some slots, 
the chassis/fans will be running high-power mode.
 
The “show env [cooling]” will give you this info, 
with details on required fans CFM capacity for chassis and for each module.
 
Like in you case with 4 modules:
1    7600-SIP-400        265.02  6.31   265.02  6.31  on    on
2    WS-X6748-GE-TX      325.50  7.75   325.50  7.75  on    on
5    WS-SUP720-3B        282.24  6.72   282.24  6.72  on    on
6    WS-SUP720-3B        282.24  6.72   282.24  6.72  on    on
 
The cooling at 70 cfm fans rotating looks enough for setup, 
so fan-tray 1 is in default mode Restricted-power:
----------------- show environment ------------------
…  
fan-tray 1:
  fan-tray 1 type: WS-C6509-E-FAN
  fan-tray 1 mode: Restricted-power
  fan-tray 1 fan-fail: OK
… snip…
chassis per slot cooling capacity: 70 cfm ambient temperature: < 55C
  module 1 cooling requirement: 35 cfm
  module 2 cooling requirement: 70 cfm
  module 5 cooling requirement: 35 cfm
  module 6 cooling requirement: 35 cfm
 
And for example in case of the chassis w two WS-X6708-10G-3C in slots 1 and 2 
the fans will be running at high speed and
the output would looks similar to follow:
 
#show env cool    
fan-tray 1:
 fan-tray 1 type: WS-C6509-E-FAN
 fan-tray 1 mode: high-power <--
 fan-tray 1 fan-fail: OK
chassis per slot cooling capacity: 94 cfm ambient temperature: < 55C
 module 1 cooling requirement: 84 cfm  <<<<<
 module 2 cooling requirement: 84 cfm  <<<<<
 module 3 cooling requirement: 70 cfm
 module 4 cooling requirement: 70 cfm
 module 5 cooling requirement: 35 cfm
 module 6 cooling requirement: 35 cfm
 module 7 cooling requirement: 70 cfm
 module 8 cooling requirement: 70 cfm
