PoE Usage Threshold

The system generates an SNMP event when any slot or stand-alone switch has consumed a specified percentage of that slot‘s reserved power budget or of the entire power for the stand-alone switch.

The default value is 70%; you can configure this threshold to generate events from 1% to 99% consumption of the reserved power budget. You can also configure the system to log an EMS (Event Management System) message when the usage threshold is crossed (for more information on EMS, see Using the Event Management System/Logging).
