Hi Josh... Just to clarify, the NUT program has the OPTION to shut servers
down... It is not mandatory.
You can have it do anything you like (eg: run an arbitrary script, send email
notifications) at certain events: battery percentage or certain runtime left,
system on battery, AC back on etc.
Hope that clears things up.
NUT is a great package, and the scripts and graphs I have added to hobbit just
monitor the UPSes managed by the NUT server. Then I use hobbit for the
notifications when any of the data points reaches a defined threshold.
