The greenest among you are surely careful about what they eat, their means of transport, their online purchases… But do you pay attention to the power consumption of your servers and other virtual machines?
Not necessarily, because yes it is not easy to measure. But thanks to Scaphandre , you will be able to see the power consumption of your bare metal servers, your virtualized machines (kvm, qemu)…etc. and why not, display all that in pretty dashboards.
The goal of Scaphandre is to allow companies and individuals to know in detail the electricity consumption and to recover data to then inject them into tools like Riemann or Warp10 and export them in JSON format.
If you are tempted to install this tool, all the documentation is here .
