For details and our forum data attribution, retention and privacy policy, see here. This test is appropriate for all models of UPSes smart or dumb. To ensure that an operating system receives a graceful shutdown when using PowerChute plus or a SmartSlot accessory, an alert is generated by the Smart-UPS indicating that the UPS has reached a low battery condition. This type error messages such as configuration file not found, etc are written to this file. Normally you will get at it via apcaccess , but there are other ways as well. Perform a Runtime Calibration.

If you would like to see all of the STATUS variables available over the network, click on the Data field of the desired system, and your browser will display something like the following:. The cable number is normally stamped in the plastic at one end ditribution the cable. As a consequence, both apcupsd and gpm were reading the serial port. The toggle value alternates from 0 to 1 on each line. Sprinkle a few calls to usleep in your code and everything will work a lot better.

Follow the on-screen instructions to install the server.

If you are not sure that logins are disabled for the port, run the ‘admintool’ program as root, and disable the port. The share and sharenet code is not fully tested. Starting with version 3. You should distribjtion perform this calibration too often since discharging the batteries tends to shorten their lifespan.

APCUPSD User Manual

Please note that we are not sure the following diagram is correct. Looking at the documentation may tell you what the correct name is, distributoon at least allow you to create the device. Unfortunately on Windows, there is no such shutdown script that we are aware of and no way for apcupsd to get control after the machine is idled.


Since apccontrol is a script, you can customize it to your own needs using any text editor. Likewise, shutting down apcupsd should be done with the same script:. When using a USB connection, apcupsd automatically sets this value to 60 seconds. During this type of testing, seconds seems like an eternity, so please take care to either wait or manually power off your UPS.

The shutdown event may or may not have been generated depending on the parameters you have defined and the length of the power outage. If all these things check out and you still can’t see the UPS, something is more seriously wrong than this manual can cover — find expert help.

Once power returns, the Smart-UPS will automatically begin to recharge its battery. On the other hand, with the NIS-based network config you basically “publish” the UPS status from one server and then your clients view that status and make their own decisions. If all goes well, apcupsd should detect the power failure and print several warning messages.

What you see here has been collected from a variety of sources. If you specify the wrong cable, it is very likely that at the first power failure, your computer will be immediately shutdown.

To change thr settings for an existing monitor ip address, port, refresh rateright-click its icon and choose “Configure This option configures the directory in which apccontrol and other event scripts are located. In order to ensure that the data logged to syslog can be directed to different files, I have assigned syslog levels to each of our four types of data as follows:.


Control of when this file is created is important for allowing systems with big UPSes to run as normally until the system administrator determines the need for preventing user logins. After installing apcupsd and before running it, you should check the contents of the config file c: Replace the serial number in quotes with the one that corresponds to your UPS.

If you see only one instance of apcupsd running, don’t worry about it as this is normal on most non-Linux systems, and on Linux 2.

Build Your Own Dev Server with VirtualBox — SitePoint

We use standard Unix serial port read and write calls so once a connection is made, we generally have few instll. This is necessary if you wish your system to automatically reboot when the mains power is restored.

This type of configuration may be appropriate for large server farms that use one dedicated machine for monitoring and diagnostics. This is evidenced by hiddev0:
