upsstat - gets informations about the UPS using an Hardware::UPS::Perl driver indirectly via TCP or directly on a serial device
upsstat [ -h, --help ] [ -M, --man ] [ -V, --version ] [ -D, --driver driver ] [ -d, --debug-level [debuglevel] ] [ -r, --remote [HOST:[PORT] ] [ -a, --all ] [ -c, --comparison ] [ -i, --info ] [ -s, --status ] [device-name]
upsstat gets informations about an UPS itself, its current status and the comparison between the rating and current data using a driver specified on the command line and prints them to STDOUT. There are to ways of operating:
On the one hand, the UPS can reside on a local serial device specified by the optional device-name parameter. If the parameter is omitted, /dev/ttyS0, i.e. the COM1 port, is used per default unless overriden by the environment variable UPS_DEVICE.
On the other hand, the UPS informations can be retrieved via TCP/IP, if there is an UPS agent running at a remote host specified by the --remote option.
Displays a short usage help message and exits without errors.
Displays the embedded pod documentation of upswatch (this screen) using pod2man, groff and less as pager; it exits without errors.
Displays version information and exits without errors.
Sets the UPS driver driver to use. driver is a case-insensitive string. If not specified, the default driver "Megatec" is used.
Sets the integer debug level debuglevel. If the debug level is not specified, a default of 1 is assumed. A higher debug level will increase the verbosity. The maximum is 5.
Switches to the remote operation modus, i.e. the UPS is watched via TCP/IP using a remotely running UPS agent. The remote site is specified by the HOST and optionally the TCP port PORT separated by ':'. If not specified, the local host's default FQDN will be used together with default TCP port 9050.
Gets all UPS informations available.
Gets the comparison between the rating info (firmware data) and the current data of the UPS.
Gets the UPS informations, i.e. the manufacturer, model and the firmware version.
Gets the current UPS status informations; this is the default.
Retrieves the status of an UPS on COM1.
Retrieves the status of an UPS on COM2.
Connects to an UPS located at host 192.168.1.2 via an UPS agent listening at TCP port 7030 at this host and retrieves its status.
