Hardware Sentry KM for PATROL 11.0.00 is now available to download! Among the many new features and capabilities included in this version, it includes the new Green IT extension.
The Green IT extension is a software-only feature which, combined with Hardware Sentry and its TSPS Component, brings real-time metrics and projected trends on electricity consumption and associated expenses, as well as CO2 emissions for all your hardware systems into your TrueSight console.
Relying on the monitoring mechanism already in place in TrueSight eliminates the hassles of reorganizing your monitoring environment for your Groups, Applications and Services.
The Green IT extension leverages the metrics already collected by Hardware Sentry. It relies on your actual energy use and user-defined reference grids to calculate monthly and yearly trends to help you anticipate and control expenditures, identify opportunities to reduce environmental impact and prepare for future legislation.
All the collected and processed data is conveniently displayed in table and graph views that can be saved, printed, or downloaded in various formats to facilitate exchanges of history and projections across your organization.

Looking forward to seeing you at the 2020 BMC Exchange!
