To implement this feature, you need to add the -p option to the apcupsd command line that is executed by the system.

An example could be the following:. This event is generated when the mains power returns after a powerout condition. In principle, you should be able to do this with the computer powered by the UPS, but if you wish to be completely safe, you should plug your computer into the wall prior to performing the runtime calibration.

This creates a potential problem where the UPS may kill power to any connected servers before these affected servers’ halt scripts complete a successful shutdown. At this point, you should verify that in the event of a power fail apcupsd properly calls apccontrol.

Item 2 will perform a Battery Runtime Calibration. Even though the Win32 version of apcupsd is a port that relies on many Unix features, it is just the same a true Windows program. For other platforms it is recommended to check your vendor’s package repository and third party repositories for recent binary packages before resorting to building apcupsd from scratch.
