Tutorial to monitor AROS & APC UPS-s via SNMP with NAGIOS
- UPDATED - 27.08.2010

I have inserted my first plug-in (you can get it from here) in this tutorial with the help of which we will check things like voltage in or the time that remains until the battery is finished.

Before you start this tutorial please make sure that your network responds to the same OID as here and that you have configured all the UPS-s to work with the snmp (note down your snmp community string). In my tests I used the standard powernet395.mib from APC and the rfc1628.mib for AROS.

After we can make the UPS checks by device type:
