Temperature utilization metrics

Temperature utilization graphs display the ambient/inlet air temperature of your data center. The air temperature is detected by sensors embedded on the front of enclosures and other hardware devices.

The operating threshold is 10°C to 35°C (50°F to 95°F). When the device reaches a threshold, it generates temperature alerts. The appliance displays these alerts in the notification banner and in the Activity sidebar. Alerts are not shown for interconnects.

You can see the temperature utilization data for a component under Temperature on the Utilization panel.


The temperature is displayed in degrees Celsius or Fahrenheit, depending upon the locale setting of your browser.

To change between US and metric units, see Set the browser for US or metric units of measurement.

For interconnects, the metrics display only the present ambient temperature and there is no utilization graph.
