NAME

       apcupsd-ups - Driver for apcupsd client access

NOTE

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

DESCRIPTION

       This driver is a client to apcupsd.

       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.

EXTRA ARGUMENTS

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

       port=<hostname>[:<port>]
           This is the name of a remote host running apcupsd (plus an optional port).

       For instance:

           [apcupsd]
                       driver = apcupsd-ups
                       port = localhost
                       desc = "apcupsd client"

BACKGROUND

       This driver was originally written in one evening to allow interworking with apcupsd.

SUPPORTED VARIABLES

       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).

LIMITATIONS

       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 apcupsd exposes the UPS to the network).
