upsc ups [variable]
upsc is provided as a quick way to poll the status of a UPS server. It can be used inside
shell scripts and other programs that need UPS data but don't want to include the full
ups Display the status of that UPS. The format for this option is [upsname@]host-
For example, "myups@mybox:1234" would poll a UPS called "myups" on a host called
"mybox", with upsd(8) running on port 1234.
Using an argument like "anotherbox" polls the first configured UPS on the host
"anotherbox", on the default port that was compiled into the software, typically
Display the value of this variable only. By default, upsc retrieves the list of
variables from the server and then displays the value for each. This may be useful
in shell scripts to save an additional pipe into grep.
upsc will either print a list of all supported variables and their values on the UPS or an
error message. If you receive an error, make sure you have specified a valid UPS on the
command line, that upsd(8) is really running on the other host and that no firewalls are
Earlier versions of this program used the upsfetch library and UDP sockets to talk to
upsd. This version of upsc uses the new upsclient library, which only talks TCP. This is
why upsct no longer exists.
