Description

Changes power management settings for disk drives on a controller or logical drive.

Syntax

ARCCONF SETPOWER <Controller#> Stayawake DISABLE| <startime> <endtime>
ARCCONF SETPOWER <Controller#> Spinup <internal#> <external#>

Parameters

Controller#
The controller number
Stayawake
Sets the stayawake period for the disk drives on the controller. During the stayawake period, the disk drives always operate at their peak spin rate.
Disable
Is a keyword that disables the stayawake period for the disk drives on a controller.
starttime
Specifies the beginning of the stayawake period, in the form HHMM (24-hour format)
endtime
Specifies the end of the stayawake period, in the form HHMM (24-hour format).
Spinup
Sets the spin-up limits for the controller—the maximum number of drives that the controller may spin up at one time.
internal#
The maximum number of internal drives that the controller may spin up at one time, from 0-20.
external#
The maximum number of external drives (such as the drives in a JBOD) that the controller may spin up at one time, from 0-20.
LogicalDrive#
The logical drive number.
Slowdown st#
Sets the disk drive slow-down timer, in minutes. Valid values are 0 (never), 3, 5, 10, 20, 30, 60, 120, 180.
Poweroff pt#
Sets the disk drive power-off timer, in minutes. Valid values are 0 (never), 3, 5, 10, 20, 30, 60, 120, 180.
Verify vt#
Sets the period of inactivity, in hours, after which an inactive drive (a drive that’s already powered down) is restarted to verify its operating condition. Once the check is completed, the drive is powered down and returns to its inactive state. Valid values are 0 (never), 1, 2, 3, 8, 12, 24.
Note: For the Slowdown, Poweroff, and Verify timers, st# must be less than pt#, and pt# must be less than vt#. You can set one or more timers, in any order, in a single command. Keep in mind that the Verify timer, vt#, is specified in hours; the other two timers are specified in minutes.
