UPS notifications

Unanswered Question
Jan 12th, 2010

I checked through the docs and could not find any mention of the possibility of integrating a UPS monitoring daemon in AsyncOS.   The rest of my systems are running apcupsd in a master/slave configuration.

I have this problem too.

Hello Matthew,

You are right! That is simply not one of the ASyncOS functionalities. I suppose that's because it's hard to make sure all UPS vendors are supported and.... maybe more important.... since not many enterprises are using this functionality. (As far as I know, correct me if I’m wrong.)

Maybe you can write a script to bring your Ironport(s) down, that is executed form one of you UPS controlled hosts, just before that host is shut's down by an UPS notification.

I must make the remark that shutting down an Ironport before a power outage makes sense. Ironport is also using some DB functionality internally and those DB('s) can be damaged by a hard power off.

Hope this helps.
