Updated WTI Device Management Utility

WTI is pleased to announce a major feature upgrade for our Device Management Utility. The Device Management Utility, or DMU, is a convenient, multi-unit management application, which is included with our TSM, RSM, MPC and AFS-16-1 series products. Three powerful new features have been added to the DMU:

  • Centralized Power Switching - Manage Power & Reboot Switching for Multiple WTI Units from a Single Interface
  • Centralized A/B Switching - Control A/B Switching at Multiple AFS-16-1 Fallback Switches
  • Power Consumption Graphs - Displays Power Consumption by an Individual Unit or Multiple Units

Centralized Power Switching

Have you ever needed to reboot or power down multiple network devices located in many different equipment racks spread throughout your IT center? Have you ever wished that you could control power to all of those devices via a single interface? WTI’s new, updated Device Management Utility eliminates the headaches associated with controlling power to multiple equipment racks by providing a single, centralized interface, which can be used to control up to 250 other MPC or RSM-8R4 units.

The DMU’s new centralized power switching capabilities allow you to control power and reboot functions at multiple MPC or RSM-8R4 units via a single, easy-to-use interface. This saves time by eliminating the need to access each unit individually and issue separate power control commands for each rack. Power to switched outlets on connected MPC or RSM-8R4 units can be rebooted, switched On or Off or set to a user-defined default On/Off setting using a single, convenient, web-based menuing system.

Centralized A/B Fallback Switching

If you need to switch redundant devices in multiple equipment racks to fallback status, then the DMU’s new centralized A/B fallback switching capability can save you time, money and headaches. Centralized A/B Fallback Switching eliminates the need to access individual fallback switches in each rack, and allows you to control A/B switching throughout your facility from a single, centralized interface.

The new, updated Device Management Utility allows you to control multiple WTI AFS-16-1 units spread throughout your IT application and invoke A/B/default commands without accessing each AFS-16-1 unit individually.

Power Consumption Graphs

The DMU’s new power consumption graphs make it easy to determine how much power is being used throughout your IT facility. The DMU now includes the ability to measure Kilowatt Hours, Average/Maximum Current (in Amps), Average/Maximum Power (in Watts) and then display that information in either line graph or bar graph format. Simple controls allow you to display live power consumption data, or power consumption for a user-specified time period.

The power consumption graph can be used to display data for a single MPC or RSM-8R4 unit, or total power consumption for multiple selected units; in addition, you can also display power consumption per branch or total power consumed per unit or range of units. Both the line graph format and bar graph format allow you to place the cursor over a selected measurement point and display the power data at that point.

In addition to these convenient new features, the DMU can also manage passwords and user accounts at multiple WTI units, provide direct access to command mode on connected units, back up DMU configuration to a secondary WTI unit and manage and create device groups to simplify the process of addressing many units via a single interface.
