Adding and removing UPSs

Add your UPS to the monitoring

The button “plus” allows you to add your UPS to the monitoring by OPMONis.

UPS-Monitoring Add New UPS

You can choose between a cable connected UPS (serial or USB) and a network UPS (SNMP). You´ll find further information in the chapter “Technique”. You will be asked which one of these two possibilities you´ll have to choose:

Select new UPS Type

After pressing the OK button a new UPS entry is created. The UPS must still be configured to be used by OPMONis.

  • Configuration of USB or Serial Cable connected UPS: *link*
  • Configuration of Network (SNMPv1) connected UPS: *link*

Important: If you are using multiple UPSs, the first time a threshold is reached by one UPS will trigger the shutdown, even if there is still enough capacity in another UPS.

Naming of a UPS

Each UPSs can be given a name for a better overview:

Naming of UPS

You can set the name in the input field “Display Name”. OPMONis will generally select and insert the official name reported by Windows. The chosen name has no further effect and only will be used and saved within OPMONis.

Showing the current UPS status

The current status of the UPS is regularly monitored and displayed by OPMONis:

UPS Status Information

Via the “Refresh” button the current data is requested immediately and displayed shortly afterwards. If available, the remaining runtime and the remaining capacity is displayed for each UPS.

Removing a UPS from the monitoring

The button “recycle bin” will remove unneeded UPSs from the monitored list:

Remove a UPS

OPMONis will ask you if you are sure that the selected UPS should be removed and will only remove the UPS if you confirm this.
