supply The fact of the matter is that 12 drives are unlikely to all spin up at exactly the same time and actually consume all your power You ll notice that in most rackmount designs that there are two power supplies either of which are capable of holding the load often just barely but when teamed they are both just lazily feeding power The Supermicro 6028R for example comes with a dual 920W supply If you take my 12 drive E5 1620v3 number from above 709W peak and add another 140W on there you come out around 849W just shy of 920W However as you get into the larger number of drives 24 you can a little more safely rely on statistical unlikeliness The Supermicro SSG 6048R actually also comes with a dual 920W supply and I m certain that it can power up safely with both supplies though I d be a little hesitant to try it with a single Going further you get up to the Supermicro SC946ED which runs 90 drives off of four 1KW PSU s That s just a storage enclosure and powering all those drives might take 35W 90 3150W They ve rated the supply at 2KW though so obviously they don t expect all the drives to spin at the same exact moment The sizing guide I ve given here is more intended to help builders of smaller systems avoid making underpowered systems Once you get out to a larger number of drives it isn t as linear as what I suggest above jgreco Oct 23 2015 3 Offline zerocool2007a Member

ville Unixland jgreco Oct 23 2015 Well no that s just some random redundant PSU chatter not really guidelines Guidelines get complex Consider for example We used to sell the AIC RMC4E a 24 drive chassis with a 950W power supply The 950W power supply was actually a 3 1 redundant supply made up of four 350W PSU modules Any individual module could fail and life was fine But A lot of people wanted to be able to plug into two separate power sources so that if one failed the server would live This wasn t possible with the RMC4E it meant that two PSU s had to plug into each power source and that if one power source failed suddenly only two 350W PSU s 600W of capacity were shouldering the load We had to tell people that EITHER they had to plug all four PSU s into the same power source OR that they needed to plug each PSU into four separate power sources So my answer is really more one of you have to think about it If you ve built a system that runs close to the capacity of one of the PSU modules I d say you have to be very conservative about how you behave in a scenario where only one PSU module is shouldering the load There s a perfectly legitimate argument to be made that spiking a PSU to near its rated watts for a few seconds should not be horribly injurious to a PSU I d even tend to believe that is more likely to be true for a high quality server grade PSU module that you re likely to find in a Supermicro or HP or Dell box I can tell you the AIC PSU modules were manufactured by some crappier outfit maybe Zippy and had a horrible reputation for burning out after a few years but at the time they were the only show in town In the end you have to figure out what your risk tolerance is especially bearing in mind that if you blow out a module it might cost you an arm and a leg to acquire an appropriate replacement My strong preference is to make sure all modules are supplying power and then you re probably just dandy If you lose a module then carefully think about what peak loading might be and how old the supplies are etc jgreco Oct 23 2015 9 Offline Jailer Not strong but bad Member Since Sep 12 2014 Messages 807 Message Count 807 Likes Received 89

mobile Oct 23 2015 I ve recently put toghether a freenas box and i was really interested in the power consumption I didn t do any estimates before the setup because the chassis already came with 2x750w psu s But what i ve found using a kill a watt meaduring device is that the harddrives don t actually take that much power at spinup vs normal drive usage Basically for a 2U chassis with 2x750w power supplies but only one connected for the test single L5630 cpu 12 GB ram 1 5v ddr3 ecc reg S5520UR motherboard 5 system fans Intel Rs2wc040 hba intel expander 12 sata 1tb drives mixture of HGST and seagate constelation ES and CS At powerup peak consumed power is 260W after everything settles down and freenas finishes booting system stabilizes at 185 190w I guess the difference can be attributed to the fans and harddrives But even if we ignore the fans a 70w difference split by 12 drives comes down to 5 8w difference per drive between spinup and whatever state the drives are in after boot So not even close to the 15 20w i was usually taking into consideration when sizing psu for a server Sent from my SM N9005 razvanc mobile Oct 23 2015 12 Offline Harsesis Newbie Member Since

undersized I realized this before I read the guide but now I m just blown away by what power supply i SHOULD use Currently I m using a X10SL 7 build running with 12 disks A few weeks ago I got myself a new chassis which allows me expension up to 20 drives Now I wanted to scale my power supply properly to be on the safe side When doing the math I end up requiering a power supply in the 1200 Watt range As you stated in an other post things change a bit when having more then 12 drives running but still it should be more than the 900 Watt suggested by you for the 12 disk setups My question now is What is are an effordable recommended power supplie s for this case The Seasonic G Series does not offer that big power supplies and on a first look the redundant power supplies cost a furtune

Oct 24 2015 razvanc mobile said But what i ve found using a kill a watt meaduring device is that the harddrives don t actually take that much power at spinup vs normal drive usage Click to expand You have to consider two factors 1 The kill a watt a 20 device hasn t the sampling rate necessary to measure the transients involved during the system startup The peak power it measured is not the actual peak power The peaks are usually too short to be measured by a such device 2 A transient at the DC output doesn t translate in a transient at the AC input The peaks of power absorbed at the DC are averaged out at the AC input You should measure the current and the voltage between the power supply and the components to really see what the PS has to sustain So your conclusions about the actual power required by your hard drives are wrong Again the data sheets don t lie Follow them xdma Oct 24 2015 14 Bidule0hm likes this Offline jgreco Resident Grinch Member Since May 29 2011 Messages 8 130

freenas finishes booting system stabilizes at 185 190w Click to expand The Kill A Watt is not up to the challenge of measuring peak current you want a high quality power analyzer like the ones made by Valhalla or Fluke to do this or at least a scope The Kill A Watt is a fine thing to plug into your PC or refrigerator or whatever to see how much power is being used over time and how much that might be costing you but its sampling window is extremely low because it is oriented towards summing power usage over minutes hours or days of time not seconds Fortunately what we are really trying to measure isn t the power supply s peak inrush current but rather the power required to spin up a dozen hard drives This is a slightly different problem than the traditional peak inrush current problem because we re not really worrying about the charging of capacitors over the period of a few milliseconds but rather a peaky sort of beast and I found pictures And more talking material You poor sorry

probably don t need to worry too much about regulatory requirements for efficiency and power factor You do have to worry about EMC if you want any radio devices in your own and neighbouring houses to work so an OEM mains filter is probably good as well as a steel box with suitable magnetic and conductive properties Then you ll need some fast switching mosfets and various inductors and transformer that you will probably have to design and make yourself The rest is just routine electronics Edit and lots of cut and try to get it to work over all loads and ambient conditions I d advise you to aim

however you want While there are certainly resources out there on the Internet to help you identify a quality PSU I would like to point out that there are at least as many incompetent opinions out there We see people making bad hardware choices all the time People choose cheap mainboards no ECC AMD APU Realtek ethernet Marvell ports because this blog said it was a good choice People try to use RAID controllers for their pool because this YouTube video said it was good People choose cheap hard drives WD Green because they were getting four eggs at NewEgg And the PC parts marketplace is plagued with cheap and or bad Seriously we found Walmart had a 17 PSU when someone included that in their hardware manifest thinking cheap good for wallet It s totally possible that there s nothing seriously wrong with it but do you really want to risk a 1K machine on it Cheap capacitors Undersized wiring Crappy fan Low end PSU s are plagued by bad People have been coming here having used PSU sizing web tools that were intended for average desktops with a small number of drives and failed to include headroom for spinup That doesn t hurt much for a one or two drive system but certainly does for an 8 drive system So I don t trust a lot of those resources that are available out on the Internet I know that a large number of them are worse than useless But your complaint doesn t even completely make sense to me you say you want resources that allow you to make informed choices I m not telling you what to buy I am telling you how to figure out how big to buy it since we see people come in here all the time with badly sized PSU s That s why this thread is called Proper Power Supply Sizing Guidance I also precalculate sizing and suggest a brand of PSU that is known to be of high

utility power I would connect one half to the UPS and one direct to mains Click to expand I love the question Generally the answer is that years ago they did make standard form factor redundant PSU s back in the AT days but they weren t that cheap They often went into the rack mount chassis and ended up being server y Once manufacturers figured out that that sort of thing primarily went into servers then we saw an evolution towards building server redundant supplies and then ones that fit into 2U and then into 1U it quickly became a highly specialized field One of the truths in the world of electronics is that volume matters If you make something and manufacture 100 of them the cost component of the final price to design and manufacture have to be N 100 but if you re manufacturing a million of them then N 1 000 000 So any time you have a device that s in a niche market it HAS to be more expensive or it can t be profitable You won t find cheap redundant supplies or if you do they ll be engineering disasters But the other thing you need to consider is that designing into a small form factor stresses electronics Consider a typical 2U RPS http www rackmountnet com sparkle 520 watts hotswap redundant power supply p 4022 html Each of those modules is 1U high and packed with an entire power supply This generates more heat in a small area meaning a higher risk of failure than a non redundant supply like a Seasonic 550 which is likely to run a lot cooler a lot quieter and probably at a quarter of the cost Also the Sparkle supply is known to fail I m pretty sure we ve got a bin of failed modules around here though in Sparkle s defense we do kinda run gear for something like a decade I m just now pulling out of the data center stuff that was deployed in 2004 Also when one of the modules in a redundant power supply fails it is totally possible for that to knock the power supply offline until someone pulls the defective module Absolutely seen that happen more than once My opinion is that you re probably better off getting a high quality non redundant power supply If you then want to defend against a failure of your deskside UPS much more likely than failure of PSU in my experience you can always acquire a rack auto transfer switch like the APC AP7750 This device allows you to plug your load into two different power sources and then will automatically switch between them Means you can power off the UPS for maintenance battery replacement whatever without dumping the load because the load just gets placed directly on utility power Plug your NAS your server your network switch and your NAT gateway into the RATS for a more high availability computing experience You can find these on eBay often for 100 so the AP7750 plus Seasonic solution is still half the cost of the redundant power supply and probably overall more reliable jgreco Dec 12 2015 108 rogerh likes this Offline rogerh NAS ty with the FreeNAS Member Since Apr 18 2014 Messages 837 Message
