A WSN-based SHM system has been deployed at the ELEDIA@UniNAGA aiming at monitoring the computer cluster dedicated to numerical simulations. The cluster is composed of 24 PC, with a total of 86 processors and 192 GB of RAM. Early-warning schemes based on environmental measurements are under study, starting from the deep analysis of temperature/humidity/light, in order to prevent malfunctioning and extend the cluster lifetime.
The WSN sends in real-time the measured information to a control unit, for data processing and storage. The acquired physical quantities are available through the following user graphical interface.
