I have no end of trouble getting DCO to show a reasonable representation of reality with regards to cooling.
It seems as if the whole system relies upon staticly configured manual entries.
ie: cabinet is presumed to pass X cfm per kW
However, I have cabinets with exhaust fans in the chimneys - and the fans are metered, and in the system - DCO should use the real time data
Additionally - I have set the CFM of my CRAC units - I would expect the system to understand that the CRAC units CFM should equal the discharge from your supply tiles , perhaps minus some percentage for leakage... but that doesn't seem to be the case,
In my case - the presumption of the cabinets air flow is massively imbalanced compared to the CRAC units known air flow -
am I just missing some switch that says - "make this work like reality" or something ?

I would try using/associating some temperature sensors, and then running the 3D view based on "Measured plane":
that may provide us more realistic simulation of the temperature map.
