                   Requirements for Energy Management
                    draft-ietf-eman-requirements-10

Abstract

   This document defines requirements for standards specifications for
   energy management.  The requirements defined in this document concern
   monitoring functions as well as control functions: Monitoring
   functions include identification of energy-managed devices and their
   components, monitoring of their power states, power inlets, power
   outlets, actual power, power properties, received energy, provided
   energy, and contained batteries.  Control functions serve for
   controlling power supply and power state of energy-managed devices
   and their components.
   This document does not specify the features that must be implemented
   by compliant implementations but rather features that must be
   supported by standards for energy management.
