R510 "power capping" and "power budgeting"?

The marketing data sheet for the R5120 state: "The R510 also can be
configured to include features such as power capping, power inventory and
power budgeting to aid in the management of power within your environment."

What is this "power capping" and "power budgeting" and how can I get some?

At any rate, the R510 is fully loaded (2 CPUS and 14 disks) and still uses
only 434W peak and only 2.5A idle after booting, according to the iDRAC.
We're running RedHat.
