Power Management with EnergyWise
Various applications and solutions use EnergyWise for power management.
•SNMP Network Management
•CiscoWorks LAN Management Solution
•Cisco EnergyWise Orchestrator
SNMP Network Management
You can use your existing network management applications that support SNMP for power management with EnergyWise.
EnergyWise domain members support the CISCO-ENERGYWISE-MIB. For information:

You can also use FTP to access the MIB files. For information about using FTP, see the Cisco EnergyWise Configuration Guide, EnergyWise Phase 2 on Cisco.com:
CiscoWorks LAN Management Solution
CiscoWorks LAN Management Solution (LMS) 3.2 manages power with EnergyWise:
•Discover EnergyWise-capable devices
•Automatically upgrade devices to the proper Cisco IOS software release
•Set the EnergyWise domain and attributes
•Monitor and report power usage
For information about using EnergyWise and CiscoWorks LMS:
SolarWinds uses the EnergyWise SNMP MIB to manage power.
•Analyze the EnergyWise network status for a readiness report.
•Monitor the power usage on a per-port, per-device, or domain basis.
•Set the EnergyWise attributes on all domain members.

Cisco EnergyWise Orchestrator
Orchestrator is a power-management application for managing PCs and network devices.
To add PCs to an EnergyWise network:
1. Configure EnergyWise on the domain members.
a. Set the domain on the domain members connected to the PCs.
b. Set the management password on the switch connected to the Orchestrator server.
2. Download and install PC clients on PC end points.
3. Install the Orchestrator server as the management station.
The server discovers EnergyWise devices and PCs.

Use the IBM Tivoli Energy Management application to monitor and manage energy usage of IT and facility resources.
•Collect energy and thermal information for IT equipment, data center infrastructure, and facilities equipment, and to monitor this information from a central control point.
•Store real-time, historic, and trending energy and thermal metrics that can be used by other IBM service management solutions, such as the Tivoli Business Service Manager and the Tivoli Usage and Accounting Manager.
•Estimate the potential power and cost savings of proposed energy optimization recommendations.
