I am planning on buying an UPS to protect my HP microserver
it will be running FreeBSD 9.2 RELEASE.

I am looking at
APC Power-Saving Back-UPS ES 8 Outlet 700VA 230V AS

is that supported by apcupsd? (already tried apcupsd mailing list, there
was no response, hence asking here)
 If not, please recommend one that is supported.

The HP server has a 150W PSU and the UPS is rated at 400Watts, and it comes
with USB monitoring support.

Also, how to measure exact power consumption by a device?

Kind regards,
