The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality. Exceptions may be present in the documentation due to language that is hardcoded in the user interfaces of the product software, language used based on RFP documentation, or language that is used by a referenced third-party product.

This document describes how in an Aggregation Services Router 9000 (ASR9K) router when the power level drops to an insufficient level, linecards (LCs) start to power down.
Contributed by Sam Milstead, Cisco TAC Engineer.
Prior to 6.0.1 and 6.1.1 when the power levels dropped, cards were shut down randomly, and there was no way to influence which cards would be shut down first. This potentially caused outage or other problems for operators.
From 6.0.1 and 6.1.1 onwards, an admin configuration knob was introduced via CSCux09817, that allowed to influence which cards would be shut down first in case of a power drop in an ASR9K system.
Here is a configuration example with LCs 0 and 1 shut down last and LC 4 shut down first.
Note: This only applies to LCs that are in the XR-RUN state. Any other state a LC is in, such as MBI-BOOTING, then it will not be affected by this configuration. So for instance, if LC 4 is booting and there is a power drop then LC 3 would be powered off first.
