apcupsd-ups - Driver for apcupsd client access
This man page only documents the specific features of the apcupsd-ups driver. For information about the core driver, see nutupsdrv(8).
This driver is a client to apcupsd (another UPS monitoring project).
apcupsd-ups acts as an apcupsd client, simply forwarding data. This can be useful in cases where both protocols are required in a network, or in case apcupsd has a required UPS access mode missing from NUT.
This driver supports the following optional settings in nut.conf(5):
driver = apcupsd-ups
port = localhost
desc = "apcupsd client"
This driver was originally written in one evening to allow interoperating with apcupsd.
The following variables are translated from apcupsd to NUT. All times should be converted to seconds (please file a bug if you notice a mismatch in units).
Access to apcupsd is strictly read only: no commands can be issued. This stems from the design of apcupsd, where the settings are changed in apctest. In order to run apctest, apcupsd must be stopped (and it is apcupsd exposes the UPS to the network and to this NUT driver as its client).
