Are any of you monitoring the power draw on your clusters? If so, can 
any of you provide me with some statistics on your power draw under 
heavy load? Ideally, I'm looking for the power load for a worst-case 
scenario, such as running HPL, on a per-rack basis. If you can provide 
me with the power draw and a description of the hardware, that would be 

I have some numbers from a friend who lurks on this list, but the more 
data points I have, the better I can justify my power requirements for a 
new cluster purchase I'm working on.
