Checks APC UPSs parameters using the "acpuspd" utility.
A Nagios plugin to monitor APC Smart UPS’s forked from Ben Shepard’s check_apcupsd_ng
Features: Checks battery charge, temperature, load, runtime remaining, battery voltage, line voltage, output voltage and line frequency, ALL TOGETHER.
Also provides performance data for all checks.

Installation: Install and configure apcupsd and ensure you can access stats from your UPS with the apcaccess command. Copy the plugin to your Nagios plugins directory (i.e. where you can find the "utils.sh" script) and make it executable. Example Nagios configs are documented in the plugin file. Run the script without parameters to get full usage info.

Latest news:

* doesn'issue a warning in case of "self test" (only for battery level under the "warning" threshold)

* when selecting "all" tests, you can exclude specific tests

Funny. I wanted to do this myself but then I found this script. Nice! Saved some work.

I had to heavily modify it to fit my needs though.
Code error: Line 187 change to:
-a "$ARG" != "outputv" -a "$ARG" != "linefreq" -a "$ARG" != "all" -a "$ARG" != "battdate"]
-> battdate was missing

And Line frequency; in- and out voltage are doing a "Max Value exceeded" check. This makes no sense; since I want to check for minimum values. So I changed the "-ge" evals to "-le" and remove sanity checks altogether; I could do so since this plugin can just replace the old check command.

In my opinion its much to verbose; maybe add a -v option do get rid of the $MSG? I set this var as empty string.

Thank you for your feedback.
I just uploaded the fixed version for the missing "battdate" option.
That implements also the "-v" option, excluding by default the verbose infos.

About the check logics, I have just inherited the original ones, without going too deep.

I'd like to implement the Nagios guidelines about Threshold and ranges, but unfortunaely I haven't much time to do that.

It doesn't run as it is missing an imported shell script, utils.sh.
Owner's reply

That script is included in the standard "nagios-plugins" package.
