This morning we connected the UPS to the server, as once again last night there was a power cut...
Probably you will need to pass by and see if it needs to be configured in a way so that the turning off could be done properly by the UPS itself when the batteries drain out

#3 Updated by Philippe May about 1 year ago

Renamed nutdev1 to ups in the config files.

#4 Updated by Philippe May about 1 year ago

Now that nut seems to be OK, i looked up to see how to monitor - eg. with graphs etc. Found . But tells that the Debian stable (bullseye) version of collectd hos not support for nut, but it is back in bookworm.

Decided to upgrade the dom0 to bookworm (testing).

#5 Updated by Philippe May about 1 year ago

dom0 upgraded to bookworm, but there's no nut plugin in the collectd package.

Got a previous version and copied manually the file in /usr/lib/collectd/. Restarted collectd and data seems to be accumulating in /var/lib/collectd/rrd/dream.csr.av/nut-ups .

Tried to find a simple tool to graph rrd database on console, but could not find. Web based tools (eg. cacti) is clearly the most popular option. To be continued.
