UPS/PDU monitoring with Netdata

Collects UPS data for all power devices configured in the system.

The following charts will be created:

  1. UPS Charge
  • percentage changed
  1. UPS Battery Voltage
  • current voltage
  • high voltage
  • low voltage
  • nominal voltage
  1. UPS Input Voltage
  • current voltage
  • fault voltage
  • nominal voltage
  1. UPS Input Current
  • nominal current
  1. UPS Input Frequency
  • current frequency
  • nominal frequency
  1. UPS Output Voltage
  • current voltage
  1. UPS Load
  • current load
  1. UPS Temperature
  • current temperature


Edit the charts.d/nut.conf configuration file using edit-config from the Netdata config directory, which is typically at /etc/netdata.

cd /etc/netdata # Replace this path with your Netdata config directory, if different
sudo ./edit-config charts.d/nut.conf

This is the internal default for charts.d/nut.conf

# a space separated list of UPS names
# if empty, the list returned by 'upsc -l' will be used
# how frequently to collect UPS data
