Cisco EnergyWise and Catalyst 6500 Switches


Catalyst 6500 series switches support the Cisco EnergyWise features and functions described in this guide. This appendix describes the Catalyst 6500 switch-specific EnergyWise functions and configuration.

EnergyWise Version 2.7 Commands for Catalyst 6500 Series Switches

This section describes EnergyWise CLI commands for Catalyst 6500 series switches running Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)SY and EnergyWise Version 2.7.

The output for the show energywise children privileged EXEC command displays all of the line cards in the system as separate EnergyWise entities. The power consumed by each entity is displayed separately and not aggregated under a parent entity. You can use energywise query privileged EXEC commands to control each entity.

This example shows you the show energywise children privileged EXEC command output on a Virtual Switching System (VSS) chassis with a PoE phone, line cards, and endpoints. All of the line cards (in the active and standby chassis) are identified as module in the Type column and consumer in the Category column. The power consumed by each line card is displayed in the Usage column:

Shutting Down Line Cards or Modules

You can shut down line cards by using the energywise query importance importance {keywords word,word,... | name name} set level level privileged EXEC command.

If all of the ports are down or in an Admin Shut state, the system displays a success message after the line card is shut down.

If a port is up or in any state other than the Admin Shut state, then the line card does not shut down and has no accompanying message. Enter the debug platform powernet_pd privileged EXEC command to enable the debug mode and reenter the energywise query importance importance {keywords word,word,... | name name} set level level command to check the log.

In the previous example, you can shut down all the entities except the Type parent. For example, to shut down line card SAL1544U2XK(35) that is in the standby chassis, physical slot 3, enter the energywise query importance 100 name SAL1544U2XK(35) set level 0 command.

Powering On Line Cards or Modules

You can power on line cards by using the energywise query importance importance {keywords word,word,... | name name} set level level privileged EXEC command to. Set the power level to 10. You can also use this command to power on line cards that have been powered off using the console CLI.

For more information about the show energywise children privileged EXEC command, see the "show energywise" section.

Guidelines for Catalyst 6500 Switches Running EnergyWise Version 2.6 and Later

For Catalyst 6500 series switches running Cisco EnergyWise Version 2.6 and later, observe the following guidelines for these features:

For high availability

To perform an ISSU downgrade from a Cisco IOS release supporting Cisco EnergyWise Version 2.6 and later to an earlier software release that does not support EnergyWise, complete these steps:

Disable EnergyWise on the switch.

Remove the snmp-server enable traps energywise global configuration command from the switch configuration.

For stateful switchover (SSO) mode

On a redundant chassis operating in SSO mode, the energywise neighbor hostname udp-port-number global configuration command does not work. Use the energywise neighbor ip-address udp-port-number global configuration command to specify the IP address of the host.

Catalyst 6500 switches do not support Cisco EnergyWise Version 1. For more information, see the "CLI Compatibility" section on page 2-4.
