Node Power Consumption
Here is documentation on using the multimeter and conducting power consumption tests.
A brief estimate of the power consumption of Medusa's nodes:
- 10 Nodes Idle: 5.1 amps
- 10 Nodes in heavy use: 7.5 amps
- This test was done with nodes that have 2 IBM drives and 1 Samsung
More detailed information in the form of a graph of node power consumption
from April 29 2004:

Below are older measurements of power consumption. Note that these graphs do
not reflect the current hardware configuration of the nodes.
