Have a look at all of our hardware monitoring integrations.


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, 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
