DESCRIPTION

This file is used by upsstats.cgi(8) to generate status pages. Certain commands are recognized, and will be replaced with various status elements on the fly.

FORMATTING

Commands can be placed anywhere on a line, but must start and end with @. Any extra characters before or after the commands will be passed through unchanged. It is allowed to use more than one command on a single line, as long as each command has its own start and end character. If you need to use the @ sign, use @ to prevent it from being treated as a start character.

BLOCK CONTROL

Some commands begin blocks - sections of the template that will be included, excluded, or repeated depending on certain parameters.

BLOCK CONTROL - ITERATION

@[email protected]

Starts a block that will be repeated for each MONITOR directive in the hosts.conf(5). This is how you can generate pages that monitor all of your systems simultaneously.

@[email protected]

Ends a FOREACHUPS block.

BLOCK CONTROL - MATCHING SPECIFIC CASES

@IFSUPP var@*

Starts a block that will only be printed if the variable var is supported by the current UPS. This is generally used to suppress "not supported" messages by avoiding the label and variable call entirely.

@IFEQ var value@

Starts a block if the value returned from the variable var matches value.

@IFBETWEEN varlow varhigh varvalue@

Starts a block if the value returned by the variable varvalue is between the values returned by the variables varlow and varhigh.

@[email protected]

If the previous IF-command did not match, perform this instead.

@[email protected]

Ends an IF/ELSE-block.

BLOCK CONTROL - ADVANCED EXPRESSIONS

Even though the parser is pretty limited, it\(cqs still possible to create rather advanced expressions. The key to this is the fact that multiple block control commands are AND:ed. This is illustrated with an example (more examples are available in upsstats.html).

@IFSUPP [email protected]
@IFSUPP [email protected]
This UPS knows both ambient temperature and humidity.
@[email protected]
@IFSUPP [email protected]
This UPS only knows ambient humidity.
@[email protected]
@IFSUPP [email protected]
This UPS only knows ambient temperature.
@[email protected]
This UPS knows nothing, how annoying.
@[email protected]

OTHER COMMANDS

@[email protected]

Insert the ambient temperature in the current temperature scale.

@DATE format@

Insert the current date and time. The format string is passed to strftime, so almost anything is possible. See strftime(3) for possible values.

@[email protected]

Insert the entity for degrees (\(de) and either C or F depending on the current temperature scale.

@[email protected]

Insert the designation of the host being monitored, like [email protected]

@[email protected]

Insert the hout\(cqs description from hosts.conf(5).

@[email protected]

Insert a link to upsstats.cgi with the "host" variable set to the current UPS. This is only useful within a FOREACHUPS block.

@IMG varname @

Insert an IMG SRC to upsimage.cgi(8) for one of these status variables:

battery.charge

Battery charge - a percentage

battery.voltage

The charge on the battery in volts

input.frequency

Incoming utility frequency (Hz)

input.voltage

Incoming utility voltage

input.L1-L2.voltage

Incoming voltage, L1-L2 (3phase)

input.L2-L3.voltage

Incoming voltage, L2-L3 (3phase)

input.L3-L1.voltage

Incoming voltage, L3-L1 (3phase)

output.frequency

Outgoing utility frequency (Hz)

output.voltage

Outgoing voltage (from the UPS)

output.L1-L2.voltage

Outgoing voltage, L1-L2 (3phase)

output.L2-L3.voltage

Outgoing voltage, L2-L3 (3phase)

output.L3-L1.voltage

Outgoing voltage, L3-L1 (3phase)

output.L1.power.percent

UPS load, L1 (3phase)

output.L2.power.percent

UPS load, L2 (3phase)

output.L3.power.percent

UPS load, L3 (3phase)

ups.load

UPS load - percentage

ups.temperature

UPS temperature

extra is where you can put additional definitions. Right now the valid definitions are colors for various parts of the bars drawn by upsimage.cgi. Possible color names are:

back_col

background color

scale_num_col

scale number color

summary_col

summary color (number at the bottom)

ok_zone_maj_col

major scale color for the normal ("ok") zone

ok_zone_min_col

minor scale color for the normal ("ok") zone

neutral_zone_maj_col

major scale color for the neutral zone

neutral_zone_min_col

minor scale color for the neutral zone

warn_zone_maj_col

major scale color for the warning zone

warn_zone_min_col

minor scale color for the warning zone

bar_col

the color of the bar in the middle

All colors are hex triplets - 0xff0000 is red, 0x00ff00 is green, and 0x0000ff is blue.

Examples:

@IMG [email protected]
@IMG battery.charge back_col=0xff00ff [email protected]
@IMG input.voltage [email protected]

@[email protected]

Insert the META header magic for refreshing the page if that variable has been set by the browser. This needs to be in the HEAD section of the page.

@[email protected]

Expand the abbreviations in the ups.status variable - OL becomes "On line", OB becomes "On battery", and so on.

@[email protected]

Insert red, green, or yellow color triplets depending on the severity of the current UPS status. Normal operations are green, warnings like voltage trim/boost or "off" are yellow, and other events like being on battery or having a low battery are red.

@VAR varname@

Insert the current value of the status variable varname on the host being monitored, or "Not supported".

@[email protected]

Inserts the current runtime, in hh:mm:ss format.

@[email protected]

Use the Celsius scale for temperature data (default).

@[email protected]

Use the Fahrenheit scale for temperature data.

@[email protected]

Insert the UPS temperature in the current scale.

@[email protected]

Insert the battery temperature in the current scale.

@[email protected]

Obsoleted. Use IFBETWEEN instead (see example in upsstats.html).

@[email protected]

Insert the version number of the software.

OTHER TEMPLATES

upsstats.cgi(8) will also open a file called upsstats-single.html if you call it with "host=" set in the URL. That file uses the same rules and techniques documented here.
