detectups



SYNOPSIS

       /sbin/detectups [tty]


DESCRIPTION

       detectups  monitors  the  serial  port connected to an UPS
       device and will attempt to determine  the  method  of  UPS
       notification  of  power  outage. It will ask you to remove
       the power cord from the wall to the UPS, or push the UPS's
       test  button. It will then determine what all has happened
       and ask to generate a config file based on  your  UPS  and
       cable  configuration.  detectups needs to watch a tty with
       modem control properties.  Please refer to the powerd doc­
       umentation for further information.

       some other device, and does not share  an  interrupt  with
       any other serial port.  /etc/powerd.conf


FILES

                           detectups generates
