ZUPS 1.3

ZUPS allows for monitoring the state of one or more UPS devices.
ZUPS allows for monitoring the state of one or more UPS devices using SNMP and executing user-specified commands in case of power outage, such as email notifications and controlled remote host shutdowns.

If the UPS devices are running on battery, the shutdown commands are executed for an arbitrary number of remote hosts, optionally with some delay specified for each host.

It can be configured to ignore these delays and run the specified commands immediately if the UPS devices are running out of battery power. Custom plugins can easily be added in order to perform other checks.


ZUPS can be used with any RFC 1628 (UPS MIB) compliant UPS device. It's written in C and should compile and run on Linux or any other recent UNIX(‑like) operating system. The Net-SNMP library (version 5.0.5 or newer) is required for running ZUPS.

What's New in This Release:

∑ This release lets autoconf set the pathnames used in the shutdown script.
∑ It also fixes a problem within the zupsd-init script that prevented it from working with bash.
