Intelligent Power Monitoring, config or default?

I'm deploying a network of AP330's and cam across the ipm-enable command.

 

Should I be tinkering with this?  Enable it but don't configure further? What is the default config actualy?

 

I don't realy care for USB and eth1, but do care about all the rest (very highly loaded APs). Should I set usb and eth1 to priority 1 and not configure anythign else?  Or should I configure the rest to a higher priority?

 

Some clarification would be appreciated

You should not tinker with it.  You should just provide high-powered POE to all of your APs so you don't have to worry about them.

And when without 802.3at, I'm guessing tinkering won't do anything since it automatically disables well... everything but the minimal radio functionality (1x1) right?

 

Power Status
------------
Item                        Value
----                        -----
Power Supply                : POE-AF
LLDP Power                  : 0.0W
Current Operational State   : USB and eth1 disabled, 1x1 chain for both Radios 

 

And a related question. Is there a simple command to get an overview of that power status for all APs?  Or am I stuck with using  'show ap debug system-status ap-name' AP per AP?
