Good morning, everyone.
I have recently finalized my installation, I currently have in a closet these 2 objects:
I live in Europe and, as you know, this summer has been disastrous in terms of temperatures.
The closet is small and narrow, let's say that it was not really designed to accommodate this type of network equipment, in fact there is no active ventilation... I started with some kind of devices and I ended up putting all this stuff. However, I did not think that the situation could become "so serious".
At the moment I don't have any stability problems or anything, I'm just wondering how much I can "pull the rope before it breaks".
The maximum temperature recorded by the router was 54°C (with the fan at more than 5000 RPM), it is currently at 41°C and I'm not too worried about that.
Speaking instead of the switch (SwOS) has a constant temperature of 74°C but in the hot season has reached 80°C.
Be careful, however, I have these temperatures with the door of the cabinet open and then the hot air can safely come out. When I close the door, the temperature usually rises by 5°C or more.
The question is, am I alarming about anything? Or should I start thinking about some kind of active ventilation for the whole closet?
I'd also be willing to add a small fan to the switch if that were enough.
If necessary, I can post a picture of the cabinet.
