Description

Following various A/C incidents in an Oxford Computer room, we developed a solution to automatically shutdown servers.

The solution has two parts the service which monitors the temperatures and publishes on a web page and the client which runs on the servers, queries the result to determine if shutdown is required. Digitemp software and one wire temperature sensors are used.
