Managing the temperature of the room wastes a lot of energy. After all, you're cooling the whole room to accommodate your densest rack. Within reason, you don't care what the temperature of the room is, just what's being delivered to the IT equipment. Better to monitor zones or -- even better -- manage each rack inlet temp, making sure each piece of gear operates within its recommended temperature range.
