hi,

I thought I should share my scripts for monitoring our Powerware 9120 UPS. It's connected through a serial cable to a Windows 2003 server that has the Powerware MIB loaded. If you have an additional SNMP card on the UPS itself it *should* work just as well.

The "load" script monitors the load on the UPS in percent. The "voltages" script monitors input, output and battery voltages. I'll be posting graphs below as a sample output.

The scripts has only been tested on 0.8.6.b.

best regards,
Daniel Netz

Great script seems to work via powerware lansafe really well.

Quick question though is there a way I can restrict the minimum voltage shown on the graph so that I can restrict the graph to between 210 volts and 280 to make the voltage changes more visible in this range?

Thanks for this script and Cacti, damn good stuff :)

hi,

i'm glad you like it :)

you can change the upper and lower voltage limits under "Graph Templates", "Powerware - UPS Voltages" and the values "Upper Limit" and "Lower Limit".

hope it helps!

Cheers, thats sorted it out. I needed to remove the battery voltage as in the UPS im using that reports as 12v causing the graph to try and keep going lower but am only interested in the in/out voltages so works fine.

in my case (powerware 9355) you have to make the following changes for the battery voltage to work because the bat voltage is about 415 volt most of the time

in data template ups battery voltage
maximum value 5000

in graph template ups voltages
upper limit 430

better even create a new graph for battery voltage so that you do not lose detail of ups and downs of in/out voltages

Inspired by kirigoe's templates I created new templates for powerware 9355 UPS.
you can find them here:
