BVD Posted August 22, 2022 Share Posted August 22, 2022 The power consumption one is something I thought was already there, but when I went to look for it, didn't see it immediately off-hand. The second is the more interesting one to me honestly - I see a TON of people talking about idle power consumption, and I'm just wondering how much time people actually have these servers idle. For myself, I went back 96 hours, and there's only 2 hours in there that I'd call 'idle'. There's almost always at least one plex transcode going, tdarr will often see new media and get cracking away on converting it, Nextcloud is now up to 7 users and there usually someone working on a document or sharing files, checking their email, or syncing something with their PCs/phones, just tons of stuff. I'm just wondering whether 'idle power consumption' is a thing folks actually see (and how much) - even if my system utilization is above 'typical', it makes me wonder if instead we shouldn't be thinking about the system's efficiency (instructions per clock and the like) vs 'mine idles at 30w' ... For the record, if I saw 30w on mine, it'd mean something's broken/misreporting 😅 Quote Link to comment
