Bring UPS Monitoring To a New Level

As described on one of my previous post about UPS Monitoring we developed a NetEye check plugin to monitor the UPS devices and report data on them. In the past months we have been working on this features by adding a lot of more devices to the plugin. These devices are UPSs and energy stations. Here is the complete list:

  • Netvision Energy Stations
  • Delta
  • Benning
  • Netman
  • Plurys

With the plugin you’ll be able to monitor your UPS devices and to visualize on graphs their performance values as the load, current, input and output.

If you would like to try the plugin you can download the new version here: Generic UPS monitoring plugin

In the following lines you can find a short description about the plugin usage:

I have over 20 years of experience in the IT branch. After first experiences in the field of software development for public transport companies, I finally decided to join the young and growing team of Würth Phoenix. Initially, I was responsible for the internal Linux/Unix infrastructure and the management of CVS software. Afterwards, my main challenge was to establish the meanwhile well-known IT System Management Solution WÜRTHPHOENIX NetEye. As a Product Manager I started building NetEye from scratch, analyzing existing open source models, extending and finally joining them into one single powerful solution. After that, my job turned into a passion: Constant developments, customer installations and support became a matter of personal. Today I use my knowledge as a NetEye Senior Consultant as well as NetEye Solution Architect at Würth Phoenix.
