SummaryA faulty power supply will present in multiple ways depending on model.
A faulty power supply will present differently depending on model.
If the appliance only has a single power supply it will be inaccessible through physical connection (monitor or console) and the power supply will not light up when connected to a live outlet.
If the appliance has redundant power supplies you will see a System Health Warning indicating an issue with the power supply. If you have email or SNMP alerts configured you will also receive that notification when the failure occurs.
Example from a device with redundant power supply:
exinda statsd: [statsd.NOTICE]: alarm 'redundant_power': triggered for falling error for event redundant_power
exinda hardwared: [hardwared.NOTICE]: SEL event : 2 | 11/28/2015 | 02:22:26 | Power Supply #0x64 | Failure detected | Asserted
exinda hardwared: [hardwared.NOTICE]: SEL event : 3 | 11/28/2015 | 02:22:30 | Power Supply #0x64 | Failure detected | Asserted
exinda hardwared: [hardwared.NOTICE]: SEL event : 4 | 11/28/2015 | 02:22:30 | Power Supply #0x74 | Redundancy Lost
