NAME

       fence_eps - Fence agent for ePowerSwitch

DESCRIPTION

       fence_eps   is  an  I/O  Fencing  agent  which  can  be  used  with the
       ePowerSwitch 8M+ power switch to fence connected machines. Fence  agent
       works  ONLY  on 8M+ device, because this is only one, which has support
       for hidden page feature.

       Agent basically works by connecting to hidden page and pass appropriate
       arguments  to GET request. This means, that hidden page feature must be
       enabled and properly configured.

       fence_eps accepts options on the command line as well  as  from  stdin.
       Fenced  sends  parameters  through  stdin  when  it  execs  the  agent.
       fence_eps can be run by itself with  command  line  options.   This  is
       useful for testing and for turning outlets on or off from scripts.
