How to Monitor Your APC UPS Units – Part 2

windchill features best plm software
Written by SPK Blog Post
Published on November 4, 2011

In part 1 of this series, I introduced the APCUPSD software package which allows you to monitor APC UPS units. As we head into the winter months, having a functioning UPS is critical for your infrastructure. Just as critical as the UPS itself is the ability to monitor the health of the UPS unit and allow you to perform preventative maintenance BEFORE something happens.

So you’ve got your APC UPS unit, you’ve got APCUPSD installed on your Linux server, what’s next? In this second part, I will go into detail about how to configure your APCUPSD program as well as setup a Nagios alert for when the UPS unit is running out of battery.

I’ve written up a how-to document that should get you up and going with monitoring your APC UPS unit.

Feel free to post any questions you might have about this in the comments section! I’ll be happy to answer them.
