Blazing Virtual Media Speed for the Dominion KX IV - 101

Posted on August 24, 2020 by Gento

When we talk about the Dominion KX IV -101 as Raritan’s fastest KVM-over-IP switch, we are usually focused on its ability to support 4K video or 1080p video at 60 frames per second. But video isn’t the only area where the KX IV-101 shines!  Due to its all-digital architecture and its direct USB connection to the target computer, the KX IV-101 supports virtual media much faster than our current generation Dominion KX III switches.  


Power Tip #2: Avoid Overloading Phases Within a PDU

Posted on August 24, 2020 by Gento

While three-phase PDUs provide higher power capacities, they do require planning before server deployment. An unbalanced power draw on one or two of the three phases of the PDU creates stranded capacity which increases wasted electricity. Additionally, this scenario can lead to a cascading failure condition upstream. PX3 PDUs actively monitor balancing between phases and if configured correctly can alert you or your team when phases are unbalanced beyond a certain threshold. As a best practice it is important to have all three phases as balanced as possible to minimize unanticipated disruptions and wasted electricity.


Power Tip #1: Ensure That You Are Receiving Alerts on Critical Events:

Posted on August 24, 2020 by Gento

Raritan's PX3 PDUs monitor a variety of electrical and environmental parameters. You can receive alerts on anything that gets monitored – inlet data, outlet data, circuit breaker status, unbalanced loads, and power factor, to name a few. To configure and receive alerts successfully, you need to ensure the following actions have been completed: 

1. Configure Alert Delivery Mechanism – how to set up and receive your alerts: SNMP and/or SMTP.

a. If you prefer your alerts to be sent to an SNMP manager tool, you need to enable: Device Settings > SNMP > Enable SNMP Notifications

It is important to note that this setting is different from the SNMP Agent setting. You won't be receiving SNMP alerts even if you have enabled SNMP v1/ v2c if you don't explicitly enable SNMP Notifications.

KVM Remote Management in the COVID-19 Pandemic Era

Posted on June 15, 2020 by Gento

The COVID-19 pandemic is an evolving world-wide public-health and economic crisis. Companies must keep their business operations and systems running.  They also need to keep their employees safe and healthy.  Many employees are now working from home, either on a full or part time basis.

Remote management can be of enormous benefit in this type of uncertain environment.
