NAME
       upslog - UPS status logger

SYNOPSIS
       upslog -h

       upslog ups logfile interval [format]

DESCRIPTION
       upslog  is  a  daemon that will poll a UPS at periodic intervals, fetch the variables that
       interest you, format them, and write them to a file.

       The default format string includes variables that are supported by many common UPS models.
       See the description below to make your own.

OPTIONS
       -h     Display the help message.

       ups    Monitor this UPS.  The format for this option is [upsname@]hostname[:port].

       logfile
	      Store the results in this file.

	      You can use - for stdout, but upslog will remain in the foreground.

       interval
	      Wait this many seconds between polls.

	      Remember	that  a  poll  is  not instantaneous, so it will slip back as the program
	      runs.  If you require tighter timing, you should write your own  logger  using  the
	      upsclient library.

       format The  string  to  log,  including variables from the UPS.	Valid escapes within this
	      string are:

	      %% - insert a single %

	      %TIME format% - insert the time with strftime formatting

	      %ETIME% - insert the number of seconds, ala time_t.  This is now a 10 digit number.

	      %HOST% - insert the local hostname

	      %UPSHOST% - insert the host of the UPS being monitored

	      %PID% - insert the pid of upslog

	      %VAR varname% - insert the value of variable varname

	      The default format string is:

	      %TIME @Y@m@d @H@M@S% %VAR battpct% %VAR utility% %VAR loadpct% [%VAR status%]  %VAR
	      upstemp% %VAR acfreq%

SERVICE DELAYS
       The  interval value is merely the number given to sleep() after running through the format
       string.	Therefore, a query will actually take slightly longer than the interval depending
       on the speed of your system.

LOG ROTATION
       upslog writes its pid to upslog.pid, and will reopen the log file if you send it a SIGHUP.
       This allows it to keep running when the log is rotated by an external program.
