configure inline-power usage-threshold

configure inline-power usage-threshold threshold


Sets the inline power usage SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) event threshold.

Syntax Description

threshold Specifies the percentage of budgeted power used on any PoE (Power over Ethernet) switch that causes the system to send an SNMP event and create a log message. The range 1 to 99; the default value is 70.



Usage Guidelines

This command sets the threshold for generating an SNMP event and an EMS message. On a SummitStack, this threshold is when the measured power for a PoE module compared to the budgeted power for that slot exceeds a certain value. On stand-alone switches, this threshold applies to the total power available to the entire switch. The configured threshold value initiates the event and message once that percentage of the budgeted power is being used.

The system generates an additional SNMP event and EMS message once the power usage falls below the threshold again; once the condition clears.


The following command sets the inline power usage alarm threshold at 75%:

configure inline-power usage-threshold 75
