If the user level ILOM data gathered from the ipmitool utility, "ipmitool sdr" command to query the BMC for sensor data records (SDR) indicates that the power supply sensors and indicators might have a problem on one of the BDA servers the output from "bdadiag snapshot" can be used to determine if a Power Supply Unit (PSU) is in need of replacement.
For example if "ipmitool sdr" output on a server indicates that the sensors and indicators on a power supply e.g. power supply 0 (PS0) are faulty as in the output below:
Collect the ILOM snapshot output running: "bdadiag snapshot" as root on the server where ipmitool identifies a potential PSU problem to confirm if the PSU requires replacement. See Oracle Big Data Appliance Diagnostic Information Collection with bdadiag V2.* (Doc ID 1516469.1)
