The APC UPS monitor collects statistical output power usage information and graphs APC UPS power utilization over time. This monitor detects when a monitored UPS device is close to maximum performance level as well as the time of day networking devices connected to the UPS device are using the most power indicating the need to equally distribute the load across several UPS devices. Only a unique name and description are required to successfully configure this monitor.
Tip: You can also monitor and report on performance characteristics of UPS devices manufactured by vendors other than APC using the SNMP monitor and Custom Performance Monitor reports. You can view specific MIB upsObjects for your SNMP-enabled UPS device using the WhatsUp Gold SNMP MIB Walker.
