moose Posted October 18, 2022 Share Posted October 18, 2022 (edited) Does anyone know if a plugin exists (or docker container exists) that can measure the kilowatt-hours (kWh) that a unRAID server consumes? This would be helpful to measure average cost to operate over various periods (hour, day, week, month, year, custom). In unRAID "Settings/UPS Settings" I see a LOADPCT variable that is dynamically being measured and updated ~ every few seconds. I think if this was recorded with respect to time and calibrated with my known UPS capacity, kilowatt-hours could be calculated for user defined time intervals. Users could input their cost per kWh and have a good estimate of what it costs them to operate their unRAID server. I think you can buy a third party device for this but why not make it free for all in unRAID? If I knew how to develop this I would try. Anyone know if something already exists or how someone could create this? Edited October 19, 2022 by moose Quote Link to comment
