When a power failure occurs, the Power Monitor broadcasts a message to all logged-on users indicating that the server or workstation is running on battery power. If power is restored, the shutdown timer is reset and a message is broadcast indicating that utility power has been restored. If power is not restored, Power Monitor will perform an automatic, unattended, graceful shutdown of the operating system.
Provides graceful shutdown
Upon expiration of the timer or low battery level of the UPS, the software will perform an orderly unattended shutdown of the server.
Runs as a background task
No user interaction required for monitoring.
Low battery signal override
Power Monitor will override shutdown timer if low battery is detected. (May vary by hardware and OS)
On-screen power history graph
Shows number of power outages, longest and shortest AC power outages, average length of outages, number of shutdowns because of timer expiration, and low battery or manual shutdown.
Dial out on a modem
Notifies users of AC power failure, UPS low battery condition and arrival of shutdown time.
On-screen countdown timer
Shows time remaining before shutdown
Network broadcast messages
Informs users that are logged on to the server that power has failed and notifies them to save applications.
Records all power events
All AC power failures, power restored, low battery and system shutting down messages are sent to a special system log file.
User modifiable warning messages
Software allows for configuration of custom broadcast commands.
User defined up time
Allows battery time to be set before shutdown occurs
Software loads automatically
Each time the server is booted, Power Monitor will automatically load and begin monitoring the UPS status.
All installation and configuration screens are designed to be user friendly, ensuring fast setup and easy maintenance.
Multiple applications available
Single UPS monitoring, multiple servers monitoring a single UPS, SNMP monitoring and monitoring UPSs without an interface.
