A Third-Party NMS has the ability to view an SNMP trap with the battery information of a Tripp Lite device, however, the user will have to look at each piece of Battery Information (i.e.

Battery Age, Battery Voltage, Battery Charge Remaining, etc.) independently.

When these events are UPS battery related, they should be configured to trigger and/or SNMP notifications.

To investigate the details remotely requires only clicking on the device in the PANMS console, launching the status screen of the UPS with the suspect battery.

Multiple subnets can be scanned at once to aggregate all networked power devices into one console.

When using a Third-Party Network Management Server such as HP Open View, IBM Tivoli, Open NMS and so on, the user will have to add each and every device s/he wishes to monitor to the NMS manually.

The benefits of time savings and installation consistency are large 10 times over when contrasted with manual configuration of a type of device that most employees do not encounter every day, understand well or are terribly interested in.

A Third-Party NMS does not have the ability to configure Tripp Lite devices remotely.

PANMS delivers additional functionality that speeds access to devices, simplifies installation and configuration changes and can complement any Third- Party NMS.

For organizations of any size, and especially those with limited IT staffs, PANMS is a compelling solution that will benefit anyone looking to install, monitor and maintain a wide range of UPS systems, power distribution and environmental sensors.

When that UPS is selected, the battery status is visible immediately upon selection of the battery button (shown above).
