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 AP9606 APC Web/SNMP management card, perhaps others

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
 

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 the above SUPPORTED HARDWARE). With "auto", the driver will try a select set of SNMP objects until it finds one that the device responds to.

community=name

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

snmp_version=version

Set SNMP version (default = v1, the other allowed value is v2c)

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.  

LIMITATION

 

Shutdown

This driver does not provide a proper upsdrv_shutdown() function. There probably never will be one, since at the time this script should run (near the end of the system halt script), there will be no network capabilities anymore. Probably the only way to shutdown an SNMP UPS is by sending it a shutdown with delay command through upscmd(8) and hope for the best that the system will have finished shutting down before the power is cut.  

INSTALLATION

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

IMPLEMENTATION

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

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

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