Whether you’re deploying fully populated or partially filled racks, keeping loads balanced is important from both a power and networking perspective. But getting loads balanced can be difficult. You could try to plug in the same number of devices per branch, but that assumes all equipment is pulling the same load. Or you could install the equipment; power up your PDU and pull up branch load information; then go unplug equipment, find the right length of power cord, and re-plug in the equipment to rebalance the loads.
