Using UPS and a PDU

Hi,

I have a APC SUA3000I UPS device.  If i were to use a PDU within my rack, do i only connect the PDU main cable end onto one outlet on my UPS or is there another way of doing it.  My reason for asking is, if i can control which server/device is switched off and also see what device is using more power, how is this controlled once i am only using ONE outlet on the UPS, in stead of one for each device being powered?

I would appreciate to know what is usually done in these situations and how people use UPS in the rack servers.

(NB. 2 of the UPS's are floor standing and not rack mount and having 8 power cables leaving the rack and attaching to the UPS i though would be a little messy - woudl apprecaite your thoughts.)

Thanks
Tom

If you want to control the power to your devices, you should use switched PDUs.
They have an ethernet port and are managed from a web page.

And yes, the PDUs plug into the UPS
