An important part of an IT Infrastructure is the UPS and Energy Stations that give the necessary power to your Infrastructure. What you need is Alarms and also longtime data of your UPS and Energy stations. Lately I implemented a new aproach and new plugins for this type of monitoring. While earlier a UPS/ES was monitored over a single plugin now we tried to split the monitoring of these type of devices in 3:
This has the big PRO that if some Alarms are active on your device you still see new Alarms if the device will loose uplink energy or your battery is having a downdraft. Also the plugins try automatically to guess your device type so that “Generic” Monitoring Services can be created and assigned to different types of Devices. These are the list of device types we have under monitoring until now:
Netvision (old and new mibs)
Socomec (old and new mibs)
Netvision Energy Stations
Benning (old and new mibs)
This gives you a wide range of devices you may check and be sure that they are working correctly. Over the Battery and In/Out Graphs you furthermore can also see if the consumption of your device is changing in time and have your devices controlled all time.
