Shuts down the system using shutdown -h or similar. Currently, apcupsd will save at most the last 50 events. This is the simplest way to install.
This is due to the initialization of the serial port line signals, which often looks to the UPS like a shutdown command. If you experienced so problems with the windkws testing procedures, or if you are porting apcupsd to another system, or you are simply curious, you may want to know exactly what is going on during the shutdown process.
You probably should also click on the Startup Fleysher for working this out.
The battery constant is the hex number in the column labelled “0”, presumably for register 0, in the following table:.

This cleanly separates the user interface from the daemon service and is required for tray icon support on Windows Vista. Here’s how you can do that:. VRLA batteries are designed to recombine hydrogen and oxygen and emit only extremely small amounts of hydrogen under normal operating conditions.
After apcupsd is ubs you may invoke apctest as root. Reinstall the driver as directed above if needed.

This has the advantage that in a power fail situation, if the killpower function described above does not work, the computer will continue to draw down the batteries and the UPS will hopefully shutoff before the power is restore thus permitting an automatic reboot. It was nothing more nor less than a form of customer control.
Generally you will have three options: Looking at the documentation may tell you what the correct name is, or at least allow you to create the device.
