Configure Power Management Policy and Power Management Settings through Smart Network Application (SNA)

Objective

The Smart Network Application (SNA) is a system that displays an overview of the network topology including detailed monitoring information for devices and traffic. SNA enables viewing and modifying of configurations globally on all supported devices in the network.

Through SNA, you can configure Power Management Policy schedule and apply it to the devices. You just have to select the start time and end time of activity for every day of the week and then select a behavior for off times.

To properly activate the schedule on the devices, at least one port must be selected in each device. You can only select a behavior if at least one Power over Ethernet (PoE) device is selected. Otherwise, the schedule can only be created or deleted.

You can also configure the Power Management Settings by applying power settings on specific ports. The Power Management Settings service can only be ran if all selected ports belong to the same device or stack.

This article provides instructions on how to configure the services, Power Management Policy and Power Management Settings using SNA.

Applicable Devices

  • Sx350 Series
  • SG350X Series
  • Sx550X Series

Note: Devices from the Sx250 Series can provide SNA information when they are connected to the network, but SNA cannot be launched from these devices.

Software Version

  • 2.2.5.68

Configure Power Management Policy through SNA

The schedule created by this service uses a reserved name (orch_power_sched). Time ranges with other names are ignored by SNA. When applying the settings, the applied behavior is bound to all selected ports. All ports that are not selected are unbound from the schedule if they were previously bound.

Non-PoE ports are only affected if one of the behaviors is selected as it shuts down data. If a selected port is not affected by the selected behavior, a note is added to the success message. This note notifies the user that some ports were not bound because the selected behavior did not apply to them.

Step 1. Choose a device in the Topology view.

Note: In this example, an SG350X-48MP switch with IPv6 address fec0::42a6:e8ff:fee6:f4d3 is used.

Step 2. Choose the Power Management Policy service in the right-hand information.

Step 3. Click Select Ports.

Step 4. Choose one or more ports and click Done.

Note: In this example, GI4, GI8, and GI12 ports are chosen.

Step 5. Click +Add Schedule Time.

Step 6. Choose one or more days.

Note: In this example, Tuesday to Saturday are chosen.

Step 7. Enter Start and End time in the fields.

Note: In this example, 6:00 and 11:00 are used.

Step 8. Choose an option from the OFF SCHEDULE BEHAVIOR radio buttons. The PoE power and data inactive is the default setting.

Note: If no PoE ports are chosen, the schedule can only be applied or removed from the port, and no behavior can be selected. Applying the schedule to the ports has the same behavior as selecting the Data Inactive option. If a combination of PoE and non-PoE ports is selected, when applying the settings to the PoE ports, the option PoE power and data inactive is treated as if it were Data Inactive, and the option PoE power inactive is treated as if the schedule was not activated on the non-PoE port.

Step 9. (Optional) Uncheck the Save to startup configuration check box if you opt not to save the configured settings in the startup configuration file.

Step 10. Click Go.

You should now have configured a Power Management Policy through SNA.

Configure Power Management Settings

This service configures the Power settings on specific ports. This service can only be run when all selected ports belong to the same device or stack.

Step 1. Double-click a device in the Topology view.

Note: In this example, an SG350X-48MP switch with IPv6 address fec0::42a6:e8ff:fee6:f4d3 is used.

Step 2. Choose an interface that you want to configure.

Note: In this example, GE1/1 is chosen.

Step 3. Choose the Power Management Settings service in the right-hand information.

Step 4. (Optional) Click Disabled in the POE ADMINISTRATIVE STATUS to disable the port.

Note: This parameter only appears if at least one PoE port is selected for the service, and is only applied to the PoE ports.

Step 5. Choose a priority option in any of the PORT POWER PRIORITY radio buttons. The default setting is Low.

Note: This parameter only appears if at least one PoE port is selected for the service, and is only applied to the PoE ports.

Step 6. To configure the SNA Power Schedule Settings for the chosen port, hover your mouse to the button then click Edit Device Schedule. Skip to Step 3 of the Power Management Policy settings to proceed.

Note: This parameter appears only if the device has a power schedule created by SNA.

Step 7. Choose an option from the SCHEDULE BEHAVIOR radio buttons. The PoE power and data inactive is the default setting.

Note: If no PoE ports are chosen, the schedule can only be applied or removed from the port, and no behavior can be selected. Applying the schedule to the ports has the same behavior as selecting the Data Inactive option. If a combination of PoE and non-PoE ports is selected, when applying the settings to the PoE ports, the option PoE power and data inactive is treated as if it were Data Inactive, and the option PoE power inactive is treated as if the schedule was not activated on the non-PoE port.

Step 8. (Optional) Uncheck the Save to startup configuration check box if you opt not to save the configured settings in the startup configuration file.

Step 9. Click Go.

You should now have configured the Power Management Settings through SNA.
