Probably born of frustration with the anemic PowerChute software included with most APC UPSes, apcupsd (http://www.apcupsd.com/) is a powerful open source (GPL) alternative.

284.55KB Mac OS X About APC Powerchute for Mac Safe system shutdown software with sophisticated power management functions, and is the ideal choice for home APC Battery Backup users. Free American Power Conversion Mac/OS X 10.4 PPC Version 1.3.4 Full. I have been trying to use the free APC PowerChute software to setup a script that would gracefully shut down our server. It appears that PowerChute Personal edition, software for interfacing with APC's uninterruptible power supply (UPS) devices, can cause problems with swelling memory usage on versions of Mac OS X.

Most if not all APC UPSes allow only a single system to monitor the UPS' status if PowerChute is used. To support simple tasks like graceful shutdown on additional systems, expensive hardware (network management cards) and/or increased software licensing is required. There are no artificial limits to the number of systems that can be supported by apcupsd and it is supported on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, BSD and Solaris operating systems.

Apcupsd has both server and client modes. Running as a server on a system directly connected to a UPS, apcupsd monitors the UPS' status and passively provides this information to clients. Running as a client, apcupsd can be configured to periodically request status information from an apcupsd server. Based on the information retrieved, the client can perform local tasks such as a graceful shutdown.

Step 1: Download and install apcupsd for your platform(s)

Download and install apcupsd as a server on the system connected to the UPS monitor port (USB or Serial). Change configuration settings in apcupsd.conf as appropriate. The configuration file provides basic documentation and is self-explanatory for the most part. For more detailed information, see the Configuration Examples section of the User Manual (http://www.apcupsd.com/manual/manual.html).
After the server is installed and configured, install apcupsd as a client on the remaining systems protected by the monitored UPS. Configuration on clients will differ slightly from the server configuration. Clients should be configured to begin graceful shutdown before servers, otherwise clients may not be able to retrieve status of the UPS in the case of power failure.

Enjoy your free monitoring software!

    Very likely, yes, though I've never used it this way. Apcupsd documentation indicates that SNMP and PCNET ('an alternative for SNMP available on APC's AP9617 family of smart slot modules') are supported. See the section 'Supported UPSes and Cables' (pp. 8-9) in the User Manual. http://apcupsd.com/manual/manual.pdf

    apcupsd is GREAT and overcomes a lot of stupid limitations of PowerChute. No ad app for mac desktop download. For example: it will run on a Hyper-V host, which PowerChute will not.

    I can't get spiceworks to scan the UPS's though. Does it recognize apcupsd?

    Would be good if this fixed the problem?

    Brilliant software. Monitoring nicely on XP, 2003 & Win7 on USB and serial. Now starting to explore the options.
    Spiceworks can't scan for it as it looks for WMI entries under rootcimv2.
    apcupsd does talk via port 3551 (by default) which could be the source of a future feature addition I hope :-)

    Do you need the network card or can it be connected to serial?
