    Command:

    upsdrvctl

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           upsdrvctl -h
    
           upsdrvctl [OPTIONS] {start | stop | shutdown} [ups]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           upsdrvctl provides a uniform interface for controlling your UPS
           drivers. You should use upsdrvctl instead of direct calls to the
           drivers whenever possible.
    
           When used properly, upsdrvctl lets you maintain identical startup
           scripts across multiple systems with different UPS configurations.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -h
               Display the help text.
    
           -r directory
               If starting a driver, this value will direct it to chroot(2) into
               directory. This can be useful when securing systems.
    
           This may be set in the ups.conf with "chroot" in the global section.
    
           -t
               Enable testing mode. This also enables debug mode. Testing mode
               makes upsdrvctl display the actions it would execute without
               actually doing them. Use this to test out your configuration
               without actually doing anything to your UPS drivers. This may be
               helpful when defining the sdorder directive in your ups.conf(5).
    
           -u username
               If starting a driver, this value will direct it to setuid(2) to the
               user id associated with username.
    
           If the driver is started as root without specifying this value, it will
           use the username that was compiled into the binary. This defaults to
           "nobody", and is far from ideal.
    
           This may be set in ups.conf with "user" in the global section.
    
           -D
               Raise the debug level. Use this multiple times for additional
               details.
    
    
    

    COMMANDS

           upsdrvctl supports three commands - start, stop and shutdown. They take
           an optional argument which is a UPS name from ups.conf(5). Without that
           argument, they operate on every UPS that is currently configured.
    
           start
               Start the UPS driver(s).
    
           and other configuration files. If this variable is not set, upsdrvctl
           the driver use a built-in default, which is often /usr/local/ups/etc.
    
    
    

    DIAGNOSTICS

           upsdrvctl will return a nonzero exit code if it encounters an error
           while performing the desired operation. This will also happen if a
           driver takes longer than the maxstartdelay period to enter the
           background.
