upsc - example lightweight UPS client
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 interface.
ups Display the status of that UPS. The format for this option is
For example, "myups@mybox:1234" would poll a UPS called "myups"
on a host called "mybox", with upsd(8) running on port 1234.
Display the value of this variable only. By default, upsc
retrieves the list of variables from the server and then dis-
plays 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 val-
ues 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 blocking
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.
