View PA-7000 Series Firewall Power Statistics

Use the following information to learn how to view active power statistics on a PA-7000 Series firewall to help you ensure power redundancy and to plan for growth. You can view the amount of power that each power supply is producing as well as the power rating for each hardware component.
The power numbers provided by the
show chassis power
command represent power calculated by the chassis power management software and does not represent the exact measured power. The difference allows margin for thermal conditions and component aging factors. For example, although an NPC shows that it is using 350 watts, under normal conditions it may use only 290 watts. This CLI output helps you know how much power is required to prevent the chassis from overloading under extreme conditions.
  1. Using a terminal emulator, such as PuTTY, launch an SSH session to the firewall.
    Run the following command:
    admin@PA-7080>
    show chassis power
  2. View the output for information on the status of each component and the current power rating.
For example, the following table shows the CLI output (in table format) from a PA-7080 with four power supplies and six NPCs installed. The output shows each front slot (1 to 12), the installed power supplies and fan trays, the status of each component, the rated power consumption for each component, and the amount of power produced by each power supply. The power supplies are labeled PSA1 to PSA4 and PSB1 to PSB4.

As indicated in the last row of the table, the four 2500 watt power supplies provide 10000 watts and the installed hardware components (SMC, LPC or LFC, and NPCs) use 3740 watts. If you subtract 3740 from 10000, there is 6260 watts of power remaining.
