powerman-pdu: Driver for Powerman PDU

NAME

powerman-pdu - Driver for Powerman PDU

NOTE

This man page only documents the hardware-specific features of the powerman-pdu driver. For information about the core driver, see nutupsdrv(8).

SUPPORTED HARDWARE

This driver supports a wide range of PDUs through the Powerman project.

This includes various models from APC, Baytech, Cyclades, but also support IPMI and various blade management modules from HP, IBM and Sun.

EXTRA ARGUMENTS

This driver doesn't support any optional setting.

VARIABLES

This driver doesn't (yet) support any changeable variable.

COMMANDS

The following commands are available for each outlet, with X for the outlet number:
outlet.X.load.on
power on the outlet.
outlet.X.load.off
power off the outlet.
outlet.X.load.cycle
cycle the outlet (power off then power on, possibly with a delay).

IMPLEMENTATION

The hostname of the Powerman server is specified using the "port" value in ups.conf, i.e.:

        [pdu]
                driver = powerman-pdu
                port = host.example.com:port

The port used to reach powermand is optional if the default port is used.

KNOWN ISSUES

ups.status is still exposed, with the value "WAIT". Some other values from the ups collection are also exposed.
