PCNS Delay clarification in Configure Events

This was originally posted on APC forums on 4/11/2016


Hi,

Im intrigued about the delay for the likes of  "UPS on Battery", "Contact Zone 1 Alarm" and "Communication lost while on Battery" 

So for the likes of "UPS on Battery"

  • does is this a delay before the UPS or the VMS shutdown or is this replaced by vm prioritization ?
  • does this delay give you x amount of time to do anything so for instance you can put a delay in for changing over power supply to the ups
    • Or in a similar situation the power has tripped for X amount of time wait a delay of XXX before things start to happen ? 

Cheers

Hi,

The delays would be prior to the beginning of the shut down. Example: configure OS to power down 120 seconds after UPS has transferred to battery. The NMC will inform PCNS that the UPS is on battery and PCNS will wait 120 seconds before starting the shut down process. If the NMC report it has transferred back to AC within the 120 seconds PCNS will not start the shut down process.
