1 Apcupsd is a program for monitoring UPSes and performing a graceful computer
2 shutdown in the event of a power failure. It runs on Linux, Mac OS/X, Win32,
3 BSD, Solaris, and other OSes.
5 Apcupsd can be used for power mangement and controlling most of APC’s UPS
6 models on Unix and Windows machines. Apcupsd works with most of APC’s
7 Smart-UPS models as well as most simple signalling models such a Back-UPS,
8 and BackUPS-Office. During a power failure, apcupsd will inform the users
9 about the power failure and that a shutdown may occur. If power is not
10 restored, a system shutdown will follow when the battery is exhausted, a
11 timeout (seconds) expires, or runtime expires based on internal APC
12 calculations determined by power consumption rates. Apcupsd is licensed under
13 the GPL version 2.
