I have a birthday party to attend in portland saturday. I don't think I'm going to make it. See section two.
I'm not feeling well. Stomach has been ... unhappy for a few days now, and shows few signs of getting better, and today I'm feeling overall truck-hit. No sign of fever or other obvious signs of sick yet, but it's very much pointing that way, and I'm not happy about it.
I got my Kill-a-watt yesterday, and plugged the server rack into it. Everything on the rack is plugged into a 1500VA UPS. That's 8 servers, two switches, a kvm, the router, two airport routers, and probably other random stuff I can't remember. It all routes thru one plug into the wall, which now routes thru a power monitor. At the time I plugged it in, it was reading about 850 volt-amps, or.. 560ish watts, if I'm remembering correctly. I'll have to look again tonight to be sure. And I'll see what it's recorded as the kWh usage over the past day. But, if my math is even remotely correct, that's some 5 megawatthours over the course of a year. go go gadget server farming. I need to dig up a previous power bill to see what our monthly usage looks like, and figure out how much is the servers.
There's a wootoff going on. Nothing good so far, tho.
