upssched.conf - Configuration for upssched timer program
This file controls the operations of upssched(8), the timer-based helper program for
Required. This must be above any AT lines. This script is used to invoke commands
when your timers are triggered. It receives a single argument which is the name of
the timer that caused it to trigger.
This sets the file name of the FIFO that will pass communications between processes
to start and stop timers. This should be set to some path where normal users can't
create the file, due to the possibility of symlinking and other evil.
NOTE: if you are running Solaris or similar, the permissions that upssched sets on
this file are not enough to keep you safe. If your OS ignores the permissions on a
FIFO, then you MUST put this in a protected directory!
Another thing to think about: upsmon doesn't run the NOTIFYCMD as root unless you
run it with -p. So, upssched will probably run as nobody or similar unless you
give upsmon another user with -u or RUN_AS_USER in upsmon.conf(5). Either way, you
have to set PIPEFN to something that ONLY the monitoring upsmon user can access.
The stock version of this file ships with PIPEFN disabled to make you visit this
portion of the documentation and think about how your system works before poten-
tially opening a security hole.
AT notifytype upsname command
Define a handler for a specific event notifytype on UPS upsname. upsname can be
the special value * to apply this handler to every UPS.
This will perform the command command when the notifytype and upsname match the
current activity. Possible values for command are:
START-TIMER timername interval
Start a timer of interval seconds. When it triggers, it
will pass the argument timername as an argument to your
Start a timer that'll execute when any UPS (*) has been
gone for 10 seconds
AT COMMBAD * START-TIMER upsgone 10
CANCEL-TIMER timername [cmd]
Cancel a running timer called <timername>, if possible.
If the timer has passed then pass the optional argument
<cmd> to CMDSCRIPT.
If a specific UPS (myups@localhost) comes back online, then
stop the timer before it triggers
AT COMMOK myups@localhost CANCEL-TIMER upsgone
Immediately pass <command> as an argument to CMDSCRIPT.
If any UPS (*) reverts to utility power, then execute
'ups-back-on-line' via CMDSCRIPT.
AT ONLINE * EXECUTE ups-back-on-line
Note that any AT that matches both the notifytype and the upsname for the current
event will be used.
