APC UPS Daemon


"Apcupsd can be used for power mangement and controlling most of APC's UPS models on Unix and Windows machines. Apcupsd works with most of APC's Smart-UPS models as well as most simple signalling models such a Back-UPS, and BackUPS-Office. During a power failure, apcupsd will inform the users about the power failure and that a shutdown may occur. If power is not restored, a system shutdown will follow when the battery is exhausted, a timeout (seconds) expires, or runtime expires based on internal APC calculations determined by power consumption rates. Apcupsd is licensed under the GPL version 2." [1]

Emerging

Emerge sys-power/acpupsd (package not on wiki - please add):

Configuration and Runlevel Registration

Edit your /etc/apcupsd/apcupsd.conf properly.

To start apcupsd, run the following:

# /etc/init.d/apcupsd start

To add apcupsd to the appropriate runlevels, execute the following commands:

# rc-update add apcupsd default
 * service apcupsd added to runlevel default
# rc-update add apcupsd.powerfail shutdown
 * service apcupsd added to runlevel shutdown

Check UPS status

Finally, to check on the status of acpupsd, run the following:

# apcaccess status
# tail -f /var/log/apcupsd.events
