wmnut [-A T1 T2] [-b BlinkRate] [-B BeepVolume] [-C CriticalLevel] [-d display] [-h] [-l] [-L LowLevel] [-U upsname] [-v] [-V] [-w]


WMNUT is an UPS Monitor. It is used to visually display and interpret details of up to 9 UPSs status via NUT - Network UPS Tools framework.

WMNUT is dockable using WindowMaker and AfterStep window-managers; under other window-managers, WMNUT should be used with "-w" option to appear as a nicely-sized 64x64 application with a background.

WMNUT provides the following information:

- Status of power supply (Blinking Red/Yellow/Green colored meter/battery),
- Percentage of battery remaining (numeric and meter),
- Load level percentage on output (numeric, if available),
- Runtime to empty, ie time left to battery depletion (MM:SS),
- Communication status with UPS (Blinking Red/Green "C").


-A <T1 T2>
Send messages to users terminals when Low and critical. T1 is seconds between messages when Low. T2 is seconds between messages when Critical.
-b <BlinkRate>
Blink rate for red LED. (0 for no blinking.)
-B <Volume>
Beep at Critical Level. Volume is between -100% to 100%. This function has been disabled, at least temporarily.
-C <CriticalLevel>
Define level at which red LED turns on.
-d <display>
Use alternate display.
Display help screen.
Use a low-color pixmap to conserve colors on 8-bit displays.
-L <LowLevel>
Define level at which yellow LED turns on. CriticalLevel takes precedence if LowLevel<CriticalLevel.
-U <upsname>
Define upsname ([[email protected]]hostname, default is localhost). You can use up to 9 call to -U <upsname> to monitor multiple UPSs.
