When you have configured system integration correctly, StruxureWare Data Center Operation retrieves accurate and up-to-date power measurements from the external system, such as StruxureWare Data Center Expert.
The StruxureWare Data Center Operation and StruxureWare Data Center Expert servers can be physically positioned in different time zones. The system integration handles the time difference.

However, both servers must be configured to synchronize time with the same NTP server:

Server

Time Synchronization Settings

StruxureWare Data Center Operation

In the server's Webmin interface, StruxureWare DC Operation>Setup

StruxureWare Data Center Expert

In System>Server Administration Settings, Time Settings option

Otherwise, the retrieved power measurements may be out of sync:

Server Time

Consequence

StruxureWare Data Center Operation ahead of StruxureWare Data Center Expert

No measured peak data retrieved

StruxureWare Data Center Operation behind StruxureWare Data Center Expert

Incorrect measured peak data retrieved (out of sync)

For further instructions on how to configure system time synchronization for the StruxureWare Data Center Expert server, see the StruxureWare Data Center Expert help documentation.

Correct time settings are equally crucial in cluster environments.
