I have four APC 1500 units that I run their free Powewrchute on. I am a bit confused as to what each of the configuration settings really mean.
I want the UPS to keep the servers up as long as possible and then shut down. However the way I currently have it configured it, I have it set to shut down immediately in the event of a power failure.
I have asked that the UPS units do the calibration but that appears to fail each time.
Any suggestions as to basic configuration?
ON one in particular it reads that:
Run time is 64 mins. So obviously I would like to take advantage of as much of that time as possible.
Here are the current parameters set on this particular machine:
Time Required For Shutdown Sequence 10 Minutes
Low Battery Signal 120 Seconds
Command File Enabled No
OS Shutdown Delay 1:30 Minutes:Seconds
OS Shutdown Type Shutdown
Enable OS Reboot Yes
UPS Turn On Battery Capacity 30 %
UPS Turn On Delay 0 Minutes
Enable SMTP E-mail Yes
Enable Notification No
Enable Logging Yes
I'm curious that maybe the "Shutdown Delay" may be too quick?
