check_ups


#1

I have been all over the forums and search area and everything say to refer to the other…HELP!!

Does anyone have the syntax for the check_ups plugin?
I have 3 APC 2200R UPS with APC917 Network cards installed.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Jeff

After some searching I figured out how to use snmp to get the information I wanted from the APC UPS.
Hope this helps.

Jeff.
