Monitoring UPS Power Status Using Network UPS Tools (NUT) 2.2.0 on Multiple OpenSuSE 10.3 Servers
Network UPS Tools is a collection of programs which provide a common interface for monitoring and administering UPS hardware. The primary goal of the Network UPS Tools (NUT) project is to provide reliable monitoring of UPS hardware and ensure safe shutdowns of the systems which are connected. This document describes how to configure one machine connected to the UPS so it monitors the power status. This can relay alerts to other machines that are running off the same power line. This way, multiple servers can perform a safe shutdown in case of power failure.
