and reports power failures and power restores. Properly halts the
system upon reaching remaining-charge-percentage or time-until-failure
thresholds. I have messages logging to stdout and to apcupsd.log via
syslog. apcupsd does not send out email notification (AFAIK) but I have
swatch configured to email me any apcupsd syslog messages. I receive
bi-weekly self-test messages. It has been working flawlessly for about
