Monitor EnergyWise devices in NPM
This Orion Platform topic applies only to SolarWinds NPM.
EnergyWise is a Cisco technology developed to help you cut enterprise energy costs, address environmental concerns, and adhere to government directives around green technologies. By enabling the energy-saving features of EnergyWise-capable devices, you can run business-critical systems in a fully powered state while allowing less critical devices on Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports to power down or drop into standby during off-peak hours.
In the Orion Web Console, you can consult the EnergyWise Summary view and related widgets to help you monitor the energy expended on your network and the energy savings provided by EnergyWise‑enabled devices.
- Fully upgrade the IOS of all EnergyWise‑enabled devices on your network. For more information, consult your device documentation or www.cisco.com.
- If the EnergyWise Summary view does not display in the Orion Web Console menu bar, see Add the EnergyWise Summary View to the Orion Web Console menu bar in NPM.
