       upssched.conf - Configuration for upssched timer program


       This file controls the operations of upssched(8), the timer-based helper program for


       CMDSCRIPT scriptname
           Required. This must be above any AT lines. This script is used to invoke commands when
           your timers are triggered. It receives a single argument which is the name of the
           timer that caused it to trigger.

       PIPEFN filename
           Required. This sets the file name of the socket which will be used for interprocess
           communications. This should be in a directory where normal users can’t create the
           file, due to the possibility of symlinking and other evil.

           if you are running Solaris or similar, the permissions that upssched sets on this file
           are not enough to keep you safe. If your OS ignores the permissions on a FIFO, then
           you MUST put this in a protected directory!

           by default, upsmon(8) will run upssched as whatever user you have defined with
           RUN_AS_USER in upsmon.conf(8). Make sure that user can create files and write to files
           in the path you use for PIPEFN and LOCKFN.

       My recommendation: create a special directory for upssched, make it owned by your upsmon
       user, then use it for both.

       The stock version of the upssched.conf ships with PIPEFN disabled to make you visit this
       portion of the documentation and think about how your system works before potentially
       opening a security hole.

       LOCKFN filename
           Required. upssched attempts to create this file in order to avoid a race condition
           when two events are dispatched from upsmon at nearly the same time. This file will
           only exist briefly. It must not be created by any other process.

           You should put this in the same directory as PIPEFN.

       AT notifytype upsname command
           Define a handler for a specific event notifytype on UPS upsname.  upsname can be the
           special value * to apply this handler to every UPS.

           This will perform the command command when the notifytype and upsname match the
           current activity. Possible values for command are:

           START-TIMER timername interval
               Start a timer of interval seconds. When it triggers, it will pass the argument
               timername as an argument to your CMDSCRIPT.


               Start a timer that’ll execute when any UPS (*) has been gone for 10 seconds

                   AT COMMBAD * START-TIMER upsgone 10

           CANCEL-TIMER timername [cmd]
               Cancel a running timer called timername, if possible. If the timer has passed then
               pass the optional argument cmd to CMDSCRIPT.


               If a specific UPS (myups@localhost) comes back online, then stop the timer before
               it triggers

                   AT COMMOK myups@localhost CANCEL-TIMER upsgone

           EXECUTE command
               Immediately pass command as an argument to CMDSCRIPT.


               If any UPS (*) reverts to utility power, then execute ups-back-on-line via

                   AT ONLINE * EXECUTE ups-back-on-line

       Note that any AT that matches both the notifytype and the upsname for the current event
       will be used.

       For a complete list of notifytype possible values, refer to the section NOTIFY EVENTS in


       upssched(8), upsmon(8)
