Opsview 6 screenshot

For APC UPS monitoring, here are some of the OIDs (Object Identifiers) you'll want to use. These OIDs definitely work with the APC AP9617 management card which plugs in the back of APC devices.

General UPS Monitoring Info

UPS Type             .

String containing UPS model, eg: Smart-UPS 1000

Battery Information

Battery capacity             .

Battery capacity as % of total

Battery temperature         .

Battery temperature in Celcius of Farenheit - depending on how UPS is configured

Battery runtime remain         .

Total battery runtime available based on current load.

Battery replace             .

If result = 2 then battery needs replacing (1 = ok)

UPS Input

Input voltage             .

Input voltage, to the UPS device

Input frequency             .

Input frequency in Hz

Reason for last transfer         .

String containing reason for last transfer to battery power

1  No events
2  High line voltage
3  Brownout
4  Loss of mains power
5  Small temporary power drop
6  Large temporary power drop
7  Small spike
8  Large spike
9  UPS self test
10  Excessive input voltage fluctuation

UPS Output

Output voltage             .

Output voltage from the UPS

Output frequency             .

Output frequency in Hz

Output load             .

Output load expressed as % of capacity

Output current             .

Output current in Amps


Comms             .

Whether SNMP agent is communicating with UPS device 1 = yes, 2 = no

Last Self Test result         .

Result of last self test as text string. eg: pass or fail.

Last Self Test date         .

Date of last self test
