The UPS management software UPSMAN communicates with Unterinteruptible Power Supplies (UPS) and
other devices via serial, USB or network interfaces in order to receive status information and measurement data.
As long as the UPS runs on normal power, the function of the UPSMAN
is to protocol all events into a log-file and to provide the same data in the network
to applications that visualize these.
During a power failure the UPSMAN monitors the remaining battery time of a UPS and initiates local or
network shutdowns of protected computers if necessary. Every UPSMAN is able to utilize the
Generex RCCMD software allowing for messaging and shutdown of computers in homogeneous and
heterogeneous networks. Different methods are available for executing shutdowns and start-ups:
Cold boots, Warm boots, and Wake on LAN. Moreover, the highly configurable and nearly unlimited UPSMAN
event handling system enables the user to pre-configure the system to automatically carry out situation dependent
actions for a wide range of cases like user notifications via network messages, e-mails or SMS, or sending RCCMD commnands to remote computer.
