powerman-pdu -a PDU_NAME [OPTIONS]
This man page only documents the hardware-specific features of the powerman-pdu driver. For information about the core driver, see nutupsdrv(8).
This driver supports a wide range of PDUs through the Powerman project.
This includes various models from APC, Baytech, Cyclades, but also support IPMI and various blade management modules from HP, IBM and Sun.
This driver doesn't support any optional settings.
This driver is not built by default. You can build it by using "configure --with-powerman=yes".
The following instant commands (see upscmd(8)) are available for each outlet of the PDU, with X standing for the outlet number:
- Power on the outlet.
- Power off the outlet.
- Cycle the outlet (power off then power on, possibly with a delay).
The hostname of the Powerman server is specified using the "port" value in ups.conf, i.e.:
[pdu] driver = powerman-pdu port = host.example.com:port
The port used to reach powermand is optional if the default port is used.
In the current NUT version (2.4.1), ups.status is still exposed, with the value "WAIT". Some other values from the ups collection are also exposed.
