Monitoring remaining time on Riello MLM 10kva - UPSMon SNMP

Monitoring remaining time on Riello MLM 10kva - UPSMon SNMP

Monitoring remaining time on Riello MLM 10kva - UPSMon SNMP

We have an older model Riello UPS MLM 10 (10000va/8000w) UPS connected via serial port to a Windows 2012 R2 server.
The server runs UPSMon v5.4.3 and the autonomous time is displayed locally.
Currently the UPSMon software is configured to react to events (on battery / on bypass / etc) by sending alerts via email and
executing a DOS batch file (which we use to pipe alerts through an in-house messaging system).

However these alerts only occur at the beginning of an event.

I am trying to determine how to provide an intermittent notification of the remaining battery time / autonomy once the UPS AC supply fails and it is running on battery; ideally this would be through SNMP to a separate box housing our PRTG monitoring system. The server connected to the UPS is already monitored by SNMP from our PRTG monitoring server.

I've reviewed the UPSMon software user manual which is somewhat sparse and gives no guidance; we have no MIB file for the server and I am unable to locate it.
I've run some fairly SNMP walk tests and can currently see no available interfaces relating to the UPS.
The alternative to SNMP would be to intermittently execute a script file whilst on battery (which the UPSMon software supports) however I have yet to be able to pass the remaining time to it using the UPSMon variable $REMTIME.

Has anyone handled a similar scenario? Am I overlooking another option?


Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live.
