AUDIT-BUDDY, like many data loggers such a measure both temperature and relative humidity. However, AUDIT-BUDDY differs in its standalone design and ability to both record and diagnose data.
The construction of Audit-Buddy allows you to measure the inlet or outlet air going into the server at three different heights simultaneously. This provides an accurate account of the whole rack environment, rather than an individual point. Measurement of the air temperature going in or out simultaneously of the server is key, as it lets you determine your cooling efficiency. Stated another way, the Audit-Buddy system provides you temperature stratification information for your cold and hot aisles without requiring any special installation, without touching the server or hanging multiple sensors from the ceiling.
The second key difference is with the information supplied. The Audit-Buddy system tells you what's causing your thermal issues (hot spots, overcooled regions etc.), how effective your cool efficiency is, and how much cold air you're wasting due to bypass and recirculation airflow. Our software is designed to make it easy to quickly post-process data, without wasting a lot of time. Audit-Buddy is a data center application focused tool that provides information about the cooling system, not just the raw data.
