So, I just bought my first big SGI. Does anyone have any experience
with the -actual- power draw and cooling requirements of a
PowerChallenge XL? The system in question has two memory boards, one
IP25, at least two IO4s, one FDDI board, an unknown number of discs,
and the Extreme console option. I don't expect it'll reach the peak
draw of 5.7kW or the maximum cooling requirements of 10.7kBTU, but I'd
sure appreciate a ballpark estimate, if anyone has one.
 All those who remember me brow-beating Josh about whether or not
server should have consoles are free to point and giggle.
