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 AP9605, AP9606, AP9617, and AP9618 APC network management cards, as well as any
           others supporting the APC POWERNET MIB

       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 SUPPORTED HARDWARE above).
           With "auto", the driver will try a select set of SNMP objects until it finds one that
           the device responds to. Note that since NUT 2.6.2, snmp-ups has a new method that uses
           sysObjectID (which is a pointer to the prefered MIB of the device) to detect supported
           devices. This renders void the use of "mibs" option.

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

       snmp_version=version
           Set SNMP version (default = v1, allowed: v2c, v3)

       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.

LIMITATIONS

   Shutdown
       The shutdown sequence should be tested before relying on NUT to send a shutdown command to
       the UPS. The problem is that the host network stack may have been torn down by the time
       the driver is invoked to send the shutdown command. The driver attempts to send
       shutdown.return, shutdown.reboot, and load.off.delay commands to the UPS in sequence,
       stopping after the first supported command.

INSTALLATION

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

EXAMPLES

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

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

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