upsdrvctl - UPS driver controller
upsdrvctl [-t] [-v] (start | stop | shutdown | status) [ups]
upsdrvctl provides a uniform interface for controlling your UPS drivers. You should use
upsdrvctl instead of direct calls to the drivers whenever possible.
When used properly, upsdrvctl lets you maintain identical startup scripts across multiple
systems with different UPS configurations.
-h Display the help message.
-t Enable testing mode. This also enables verbose mode. Testing mode makes upsdrvctl
display the actions it would execute without actually doing them. Use this to test
out your configuration without actually doing anything to your UPS drivers. This
may be helpful when defining the 'sdorder' directive in your ups.conf(5).
-v Enable verbose messages.
upsdrvctl supports four commands - start, stop, shutdown and status. They take an
optional argument which is a UPS name from ups.conf(5). Without that argument, they oper-
ate on every UPS that is currently configured.
start Start the UPS driver(s).
stop Stop the UPS driver(s).
Command the UPS driver(s) to run their shutdown sequence. Drivers are stopped
according to their sdorder value - see ups.conf(5).
WARNING: this will probably power off your computers, so don't play around with
this option. Only use it when your systems are prepared to lose power.
status Check the status of the UPS driver(s).
If every UPS that has been checked is running, then the exitcode will be 0. If one
seems to be missing, the exitcode will be 1.
The status checking is rudimentary, and really only looks for the presence of .pid files.
If you really want to know if your UPS drivers are alive and well, upsmon(8)'s NOCOMM
notifier does a fine job.
