NAME

       snmp-ups - Multi-MIB Driver for SNMP UPS equipment

NOTE

       This man page only documents the hardware-specific features of the snmp-ups driver. For
       information about the core driver, see nutupsdrv(8).

SUPPORTED HARDWARE

       The snmp-ups driver automatically detects and supports a wide range of devices by loading
       various MIBS: ietf:: UPS that is RFC 1628 (UPS MIB) compliant, e.g. MGE UPS SYSTEMS,
       Liebert, perhaps others (default)

       mge
           MGE UPS SYSTEMS and MGE Office Protection Systems devices with SNMP cards (ref 66062,
           66045, 66074 and 66244)

       apcc
           APC AP9606 APC Web/SNMP management card, perhaps others

       netvision
           Socomec Sicon UPS with Netvision Web/SNMP management card/external box

       pw
           Powerware devices with ConnectUPS SNMP cards

       aphel_genesisII
           Eaton Powerware ePDU Monitored

       aphel_revelation
           Eaton Powerware ePDU Managed

       raritan
           Various Raritan PDUs

       baytech
           Various BayTech PDUs

       cpqpower
           HP/Compaq AF401A management card, perhaps others

       cyberpower
           Cyberpower RMCARD201. Should also support RMCARD100 (net version), RMCARD202 and
           RMCARD301

EXTRA ARGUMENTS

       This driver supports the following optional settings in the ups.conf(5):

       mibs=name
           Set MIB compliance (default=auto, allowed entries: refer to the above SUPPORTED
           HARDWARE). With "auto", the driver will try a select set of SNMP objects until it
           finds one that the device responds to.

       community=name
           Set community name (default = public). Note that you require a RW community name to
           change UPS settings (as for a powerdown).

       snmp_version=version
           Set SNMP version (default = v1, the other allowed value is v2c)

       pollfreq=value
           Set polling frequency in seconds, to reduce network flow (default=30)

       notransferoids
           Disable the monitoring of the low and high voltage transfer OIDs in the hardware. This
           will remove input.transfer.low and input.transfer.high from the list of variables.
           This should only be used on APCC Symmetra equipment which has strangeness in the
           three-phase power reporting.

       secLevel=value
           Set the securityLevel used for SNMPv3 messages (default=noAuthNoPriv, allowed:
           authNoPriv,authPriv)

       secName=value
           Set the securityName used for authenticated SNMPv3 messages (no default)

       authPassword=value
           Set the authentication pass phrase used for authenticated SNMPv3 messages (no default)

       privPassword=value
           Set the privacy pass phrase used for encrypted SNMPv3 messages (no default)

       authProtocol=value
           Set the authentication protocol (MD5 or SHA) used for authenticated SNMPv3 messages
           (default=MD5)

       privProtocol=value
           Set the privacy protocol (DES or AES) used for encrypted SNMPv3 messages (default=DES)

REQUIREMENTS

       You will need to install the Net-SNMP package from http://www.net-snmp.org/ before
       building this driver.

       SNMP v3 also requires OpenSSL support from http://www.openssl.org.

LIMITATION

   Shutdown
       This driver does not provide a proper upsdrv_shutdown() function. There probably never
       will be one, since at the time this script should run (near the end of the system halt
       script), there will be no network capabilities anymore. Probably the only way to shutdown
       an SNMP UPS is by sending it a shutdown with delay command through upscmd(8) and hope for
       the best that the system will have finished shutting down before the power is cut.

INSTALLATION

       This driver is only built if the Net-SNMP development files are present on the system. You
       can also force it to be built by using "configure --with-snmp=yes" before calling make.

IMPLEMENTATION

       The hostname of the UPS is specified with the "port" value in ups.conf, i.e.:

           [snmpv1]
                   driver = snmp-ups
                   port = snmp-ups.example.com
                   community = public
                   snmp_version = v1
                   mibs = ietf
                   pollfreq = 15
                   desc = "Example SNMP v1 device"

           [snmpv3]
                   driver = snmp-ups
                   port = 166.99.224.132
                   mibs = mge
                   secLevel = authPriv
                   secName = mysecurityname
                   authPassword = myauthenticationpassphrase
                   privPassword = myprivatepassphrase
                   desc = "Example SNMP v3 device, with the highest security level"
