This manual is divided into parts which increase in technical depth as they go. All cables furnished by APC have the cable number stamped on the side of the computer connector end of the cable. There are four CGI programs multimon. After this run time has been completed, the original Estimated Run Time is compared with the actual run time. The signals used on the other cables are different. The most likely cause of problems are:. In the following example, we should the facility as local0.

This can be very helpful for checking the condition of your UPS and to know whether or not apcupsd is properly usbb to it. If this is the case for your system, please upgrade to at least kernel version 2.
If your UPS doesn’t appear in the list at all, check the obvious things: In this case, there are several instances of apcupsd on the same computer, each controlling a different UPS. To begin the test, pull the power plug from the UPS. In the course of using it, I have added information gleaned from apcupsd and information apckpsd supplied by APC.
The difference at the computer end is due to different cable configurations. Apcupse a future release of apcupsd this procedure will be replaced by a daemon operation that can be performed on all types of UPS.
For anyone wanting modbus over USB, I used a full slackware dev system to build a package with the correct flags. Please note that we are not sure the following diagram is correct. The installer will give you an opportunity start the Apcupsd service immediately. The default setting is ksb press the button once to set the sensitivity to “medium”, and press it again to set it to “low”; pressing it a third time will set it back to “high”. Connecting via USB I can get limited info in unraid by setting cabletype and upstype to “usb”.
It would be possible to have a client also work as a server, but that would increase the delay of information getting from the UPS to the secondary client.
Anyone successfully using modbus-usb with apcupsd? – General Support – Unraid
At this point, you should verify that in the event of a power fail apcupsd properly calls apccontrol. The shutdown event may or may not have been generated depending uusb the parameters you have defined and the length of the power outage.
If you are not sure that logins are disabled for the port, run the ‘admintool’ program as root, and disable the port. If you were to reboot your computer during the grace period, the UPS could then suddenly turn off the power this happened to me.
To enable the SNMP support it is enough to configure the correct device in your apcupsd. To make reading the status usbb reliable via a named pipe, the first record written contains a version number, the number of records that follow the first record, and the total number of bytes in those subsequent records.

Stop the PowerChute plus [or apcupsd] software from running and disconnect the serial cable. In order for this udb to work, you must configure your UPS to deliver traps to the server running apcupsd.
In principle, you should be able to do this with the computer powered by the UPS, but if you wish to be completely safe, you should plug your computer into the wall prior to performing the runtime calibration. This is not the normal behavior of most computers as shipped from the factory.
To do so, you might want to get a copy of PsShutdown, which does have a power down option. If you experienced so problems with the testing procedures, or if you are porting apcupsd to another system, or you are simply curious, you may want to know exactly what is going on during the shutdown process.
Currently as of 3. This means that whenever the power is applied they are on. Unused bits are set to 0. Sprinkle a few calls to usleep in your code and everything will work a lot better.
An additional device-node-related problem is the use of dynamic minors. No, I had no issues at all with NUT. If you have a UPS that communicates via serial port, you need to do two things before you can even think about configuring the software.
