How to Repair Data Center Hotspot IDC Cabinet Cabling

Hot spots in a data center can cause downtime for IT equipment and potentially data loss, costing businesses millions of dollars. This is why it is so important to find and fix any hot spots in the monitored data center as quickly as possible. To make sure your data center doesn’t run into problems, you need to know some effective hotspot detection and repair techniques.


Automatic temperature monitoring


When it comes to hotspot detection, it is imperative to know the status of each server at all times. With automatic temperature monitoring, no potential problem can go unnoticed. Given the natural rise in heat, the sensors for these systems should be mounted near the top of the rack. Additionally, they should be installed near equipment entrances as this is where hot spots can become a problem. With a system that can monitor temperature, it is also important to take action in the event of an alarm.


manual inspection


Although automated temperature monitoring systems are the most effective method of detecting hot spots, it is important to perform manual temperature checks to ensure that automated systems are functioning properly. Operators need to regularly take manual temperature measurements in key areas near the hotspot to ensure the sensors of the automated system are picking up the correct temperature. Of course, if the data center is smaller and cannot provide an automatic temperature monitoring system, more frequent manual measurements will be required.


effective air supply


In the fight against hot spots, computer room air conditioning is the most important measure. Keeping data center equipment at an acceptable temperature is next to impossible without a high-quality computer room air conditioning system. However, simply running the computer room air conditioning system will not prevent the equipment from overheating. Cool air must be distributed to critical locations within the data center to ensure that the air intakes on individual servers get the cool air they need. If you’re just trying to cool the whole room, the air going into the unit’s air intake won’t be cold enough to prevent hot spots.


In the entire network cabling project, cabinet cabling is a very delicate job. It is completely different from installing clothes. It cannot be said that wiring is done according to personal preferences. It has its own rules. If it is installed incorrectly, it will not be able to complete the work normally, and it will seriously affect the quality of the entire project.


  1. Both ends of the power cord plug and server power connector should be labeled with cable ties


  1. If a cabinet has an internal and external network switch, try to use two different color network cables to distinguish them.


  1. The wiring between the cabinets should be routed from the top of the cabinet


  1. The cable tie label with the same number should be marked on the back end of the network cable connecting the server and the switch at both ends, and the number should be consistent with the port number of the switch


  1. The power cord and network cable are routed on both sides of the sub-cabinet, and each section must be tied with cable ties


  1. Too many servers in the cabinet should not be stacked together, they should be separated by baffles, which is helpful for maintenance and server heat dissipation stability
