Last weekend I went back to Picton for the weekend to celebrate my birthday with family and friends. This gave me the opportunity to swap out the TOUGHswitch TS-5-POE out for the new Netonix WS-8-150-Dc. In this blog post I wanted to show you some of the features related to power monitoring and management,
I have drawn in some arrows in the screenshot above and the following will be about those features.
Here you can see the power management page. These are the interesting features.
This is the device status tab. Add the bottom we have the input voltage over time. In the screenshot we see the last 24 hours. In my case we are looking at the battery voltage of the last 24 hours. It gives an idea how well they get charged depending how fast the line rises. And sudden drops can be because of POE device being turned on automatically.
I would like to set up a SNMP server to collect important data for the whole system and create graphs that go back further than 24 hours. Collecting more data and analyzing it could provide me with some tweaks I could make to the system to create an even more stable system.
