"and now, the rest of the story"... The power supply feeding these power bars is an APC Symmetra unit. There is no way to get a clamp around only 1 side of the circuit. The other issue is trying to avoid having to take down an entire power bar to measure. :(

It's a multimeter with clamp-on ammeter probe.

I had one from them years ago and looked like a real electrician's tool and
worked well.  However, this seems to have a clamp-on probe and goes to 30
amps.  For under $21, I might get one...handy, you know.  In fact, I'll pick
up one on the way home and tell you how it works.

Amprobe....  Just have an electrician come in and check that breaker.

Or, if you are like me, you've used them a lot in a former life and have a 
couple laying around :-).

The problem is I don't want to power down everything to check it. I 
already have a Kill-A-Watt.

WELL.

Hi,

We have a large power bar mounted on a rack that powers several servers 
and switches. It keeps popping the breaker that feeds the bar. Is there 
any device (ammeter?) that I can measure the amperage draw on that cord 
while everything is running?

Thanks,
