I have a question regarding UPS batteries (APC Smart-UPS 1500VA).
In general is there a way to know when it is time to replace the batteries or to upgrade to a better UPS system. I don't seem to get any straight answers out of APC customer support.
The UPS system we have is fairly new (about a 1 year) and when the power goes out the batteries don't stay on long enough for all the systems to shutdown properly (I have the PowerChute software configured to do this right away -- but some of the servers take a while to shutdown).
