How can I calculate the British thermal units (BTU) per hour my server generates?
- Get the chassis power supply wattage. For example, the Intel® Server System R1208WT2GSR has one 750W power supply.
- Divide the power supply wattage by the power supply efficiency, found in the chassis Technical Product Specification (TPS). Our example server shows 91% efficiency when running at 100% load; 750/0.91 = 824 Watts consumed
- Multiply the Watts consumed by 3.41214 to get BTU/h. Our example is: 824*3.41214~=2,812 BTU/h
