Powerware® IBM Director
Management System
As a part of Eaton's comprehensive family of power management applications, Powerware
Extensions for IBM Director
considerably simplify network
management tasks for UPSs.
This is achieved by allowing system administrators to monitor,
diagnose, configure, set alarms,
schedule self-tests, check battery,
gather inventory information,
and control Powerware UPSs
network wide from a single console within IBM Director.
Features
• Seamless integration of Powerware UPSs into the IBM
Director Management Console
• UPS inventory management
• UPS event and alarm management
• UPS load segment control
• UPS reboot and scheduled shutdown
• Network wide UPS battery test
Monitoring and controlling all
Powerware UPSs in the network
has never been easier. Obtain
real-time advance notification on
critical elements of server power
management, such as UPS battery status, load level and battery
replacement alarms.
• Standard RFC1628.MIB and PowerMIB XUPS.MIB support
• SNMP “GET” and “SET” commands support
• SNMP Trap forwarding support
• Central log for UPS events
• IBM Director Upward Integration
**For a detailed description of features, refer to the back of this sheet.
Integrating Powerware UPSs
into Director’s network topology
brings UPS control and power
management to the fingertips of
Director system administrators.
Powerware Extensions help IBM
Director users maximize power
systems availability through an
interface with which they are
already familiar.
In addition to Director’s own
set of tools, users can simply double-click the UPSs in
Director’s Management Console,
and launch Eaton’s LanSafeTM
software or ConnectUPS Web/
SNMP Card applications. With
this integrated snap-in solution,
all the powerful features and
functions of these Eaton awardwinning programs are now just
a click away.
