ASR 9010 Temperature Threshold

Hi 

I would like to find the temperature threshold value of ASR9010.

admin show environment temperature, it shows only current temp value.

admin show environment table will only have critical value, no minor and major value.

Could anyone provide me this value?

 

 

Thanks,

 

Tom

Hi Tom,

Hi Tom,

great question! And I think we could have documented this a bit better, so here we go!

The asr9000 hardware measures the temperature at 2 points, at the inlet (like the bottom of the card if vertical) and the "hotspot" which is close to the CPU which is top of the card.

The delta between inlet and hotspot effectively gives a measure of the total heat dissipation of that card and depending on how active it is/packets it forwards (no joke) it would be hotter or dissipating more heat.

The environmental logic of the shelf manager has 2 thresholds it would look at:

! #define RSP_STT 93  // RSP STT 

! #define LC_STT  90  // LC STT

These define the shutdown temperature thresholds when the hotspot exceeds these temperatures.

These values are not configurable and fixed in the SW.

Many people would like to have a yellow alarm to get an identification when the temperature reaches a certain (configurable?) threshold so that we can start looking into this. That is something in the works, but not there yet.

The STT (shutdown temperature thresholds) are RED and always be unconfigurable otherwise you will create a toaster oven out of your 9k :)

So what does inlet mean and what temperature should it be at? Another common question:

Ideally you want the temperature as low as possible, but that puts strain on your AC and env costs. If it is too high, but ensuring it is below the STT at the hotspot, the power consumption of the device goes up because more heat means more amps and also higher fan speeds, which also cost power.

So it is a trade off between AC cost and power draw of your device.

Also dirty filters or inconvenient airflow of the cabinets can affect the inlet temperature.

Then the airdensity matters also. If I have a medium inlet temp, but low air density, obviously I can't cool enough so my hotspot could be higher then a device on a location with a higher air density.

In short, there is no minimum or recommended inlet value as long as it can provide enough cooling to the card. The cooler the better, obviously, but trade of cost between AC and power draw and dependent on altitude/air density also.

How to go about it in the absence of the YELLOW alarm? You could poll the entity sensor mib for the hotspot temps and mark a 10% (or whatever range you prefer) and out of out mgmt station generate an alert when the hotspot temp is x% below the STT values provided.

Hopefully this gives some guidance.

Hi Xander and ASR9K Expert,

Hi Xander and ASR9K Expert,

For RSP or RP, what sensor do we have to monitoring?

Is it fine to monitoring only for 'Inlet' sensor and set the threshold not over 40C

If the both sensors must to be montiored, how about the threshold of 'Hostspot' on RSP/RP ? or Can i use the config in SW (81 degreeC) as threshold?

Thanks in advance

hi rojer, it is the hotspot

hi rojer, it is the hotspot that is most important/critical.

if the hotspot goes over the set threshold, the card will eventually shutdown.

Hi Xander,

Hi Xander,

Thanks for reply. So the hotspot sensor should also be monitored and set threshold < 80 degreeC correct?

yeah the inlet is merely to

yeah the inlet is merely to show you the intake temperature, it can be warm, if the devices are not hot at all or when the air is dense. the lower the temp is the more heat it can absorb obviously.

the hotspot is definitely more critical. would set a marker on 80 for yellow and 90 for red.

XR6 added a nice functionality to manually configure temperature thresholds for yellow and red via CSCun79821

cheers!

Hi Alexander,

Hi Alexander,

We found this log on our ASR9k, not sure if the room temperature is not cool enough because we see on RSP its quite normal, we suspecting the linecard carrying lot of traffic.

sounds like you have a 36x10

sounds like you have a 36x10 in slot 0 in a 9010.

the FIA number 5 is running way hotter then all the other components. I see the inlet is rather high for this slot also compared to the other slots.

Can you check the fan speeds and see if there is adequate airflow? I think there will be considering the inlet vs hotspot/temps on the RP's.

I would check the airfilter to make sure they are able to provide the right airflow.

If there are any high powered optics inserted in the card, we may need to move the card to a more centered slot for it to have it benefit the max airflow, which is slightly higher in slots 3 and 4 around the RSP's.
