    Hi everyone, we definitely see the value in having this Inspector in Roar. Since this type of device does not have a straight forward API, there is some additional development effort in building this Inspector. We'll be sending updates as it makes its way onto our roadmap. Thanks for providing feedback to help you Roar!

    Here are some ideas we'd like to see:

    1 - I’d like to see a history of on/off battery cycles and what the final battery capacity was when power came back up. Something that would help us say, based on previous power outages, this UPS is worth 60 minutes of runtime in its current load-shedding configuration.

    2 - This is specific to the Network Shutdown using the Management Card flavor of things - but having a list of Registered Agents would be nice - this will tell us the Hypervisor Hosts and or Physical Servers that the UPS management card is responsible for controlling in terms of shut down signals.

    3 – General configuration like any device: Network settings / IP, shutdown options as programmed, other options that are programmed in PowerChute, event history?

    How about merging this in to a general UPS category 

    Most UPS units support SNMP using a standard MIB + a vendor specific one

     

    Another option is to create an appliance using Network UPS Tools (NUT) which already understands most UPS units and provides a standard API to gather information from every UPS it supports
