    Ivanti Power Management - Frequently asked questions



    What does the Power Management module do?


    It allows an administrator to easily create, financially evaluate, and deploy power management policies.


    How does it work?

    After creating a power management policy, the administrator can assess the specific financial impact of the policy on all or any subset of systems in their environment. A power savings report can be printed out and given to management to document cost-savings from power-saving policies.

    Is there a demo I can watch?



    What kind of power management policy does Ivanti recommend?


    The white paper "IvantiPower Management - Practical Policy Considerations" is available here: white paper.  This paper explains our recommendation to put systems on standby during non-work hours. Balancing productivity and the savings available from a power-saving policy is discussed in this short (four page) whitepaper.


    How is power savings calculated?


    We match actual inventory information with OEM-provided wattage consumption rates* and customizable usage patterns to estimate available power-savings.


    *Dell initially, others will follow.

    Why does power consumption/savings vary over time in the reporting section?


    The default usage pattern assumptions are mapped onto actual calendar data to produce realistic results. As consumption during the workweek is assumed to be greater than consumption on weekends, and some months have greater or lesser proportions of weekdays or weekends than others, natural variation in consumption will occur, all else being equal.

    How can I estimate the potential power savings I will see from implementing Ivanti Power Manager?




    Does this replace Vulnerability Definition CF000001 that I find in my Patch content?


    CF000001 will still remain in patch content. It can be used, however Ivanti Power Management is more full-featured.

    Will power policies be applied at the user level or the machine level?


    Power policies are applied at the machine level.


    Can I export reports from the Power Management module?


    At this time there is no export function. However, reports may be printed.


    What platforms does Ivanti Power Management support?


    At this time only Microsoft Windows platforms are supported.
