APCUPSD (APC UPS Daemon) can be used for power mangement and controlling most of APC\'s UPS models. Apcupsd works with most of APC\'s Smart-UPS models as well as most simple signalling models such a Back-UPS, and BackUPS-Office. During a power failure, apcupsd will inform the users about the power failure and that a shutdown may occur. If power is not restored, a system shutdown will follow when the battery is exhausted, a timeout (seconds) expires, or runtime expires based on internal APC calculations determined by power consumption rates. Apcupsd is licensed under the GPL version 2.
What's new in APCUPSD
Major update to win32 version of apctray. Includes many visual and
usability improvements to match OS X version.
apctest now supports battery calibration and self-test interval control
on USB models. Many thanks to James Belleau for
contributing these features.
New SNMP driver that does not require libsnmp.so, thus eliminating
issues with not finding the library during shutdown when /usr has
been unmounted. The new driver is the default for \'UPSTYPE snmp\'.
The old driver is still available as \"UPSTYPE netsnmp\" if needed.
Add missing NOMINV, NOMOUTV, and NOMPOWER to net clients
Fix missing WALL in apccontrol (debian bug #546019)
Change all time/date strings to simplified ISO format:
\"YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS +/-UTC\"
Fix battery voltage readout on \"Back-UPS 500 FW: 6.3.I USB FW: c1\"
Remove obsolete image files from source tree
Fix issues with popup.exe running when it shouldn\'t and sometimes
hanging and/or generating an \"Interactive Services Dialog Detected\"
Use /kill switch from the installer to shut down running instances
of apcupsd and apctray. This will provide more reliable termination
Update apctest to use \'Q\' to exit any menu instead of a number that
is always changing. Contributed by James Belleau
