FreeBSD and UPS

Yes !

There is a very good soft called apcupsd.

I am working in Angola and have had a lot of problems with  
electricity // until I have discovered this soft.
It works perfectly with the apc network card (It came as an option on  
my APC 1500).

I have setup apcupsd to use snmp (this seems to be the most stable use).

I was very surprised because the soft did shutdown the server  
automatically when the UPS went out of battery… and I had not tested  
that (lack of time).
So the soft even went beyond my expectations…

Port:	apcupsd-3.14.5
Path:	/usr/ports/sysutils/apcupsd
Info:	Set of programs for controlling APC UPS
Maint:	itetcu at
B-deps:	gettext-0.17_1 gmake-3.81_3 libiconv-1.11_1 net-snmp-  
R-deps:	net-snmp- perl-5.8.9_2
