Telnet/SSH'able Power Supplies

« previous entry | next entry »

Dear LazyWeb,

Today is "green" day, and for "green" day I want to turn on and off some computers by remote. This means I want to be able to telnet/ssh into a power supply to bring them up and down.

Cheap, I want cheap. Web interface is "ok" assuming it works with links (aka text based browser).

No cards... something I plugin. I want a very simple setup.

I've got test servers I rarely use and I want them off most of the time (aka... MySQL, Memcached, Asterisk, Gearman, Drizzle... all the rest).

Thanks!
-Brian

Let us know what you find. We've investigated http://www.leunig.de/_en/_pro/remote_power_switches.html and http://www.apcc.com/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=AP9212&tab=documentation, but we don't care about text-based browser compliance, and "cheap" can be a relative term.

May have a broken link above, This should work or just look around http://www.digital-loggers.com/ you'll find it.

While I'm still looking. RPS-ERP I. However the first choice had some C++ code example for remote controlling which may be even better.

Even cheaper you say, ok how about $79.00

APC7900 - always to be found on ebay (retail new: $400ish). I acquired an older (similar) model for about $100 recently.

I find that hardware gets a lot of spurious on's from that.

But!

Some of the hardware I have just does not support it. Heck, some of the OS'es I keep around do not support it :)

For a while now I've been intending to get an X10 module with a serial port, and write a quick perl script that will run on one of my servers downstairs to power my router and modem off and back on.

Basically the only time I'd use it, though, is when I'm on the phone with tech support. Seemed like a lot of effort, to avoid walking downstairs twice a year.

Please let me know if you find one of these. This would avoid me having to hike to the top of a nearby mountain through the snow next winter when a switch decides to be pissy.
