SNMP OID for "Battery lifetime exceeded"

Hello,

 

We monitor all our APC UPS systems with SNMP.

 

When a battery is broken we see this with the OID upsAdvBatteryReplaceIndicator (1.3.6.1.4.1.318.1.1.1.2.2.4.0). 

 

But I have a couple of UPS systems with the following warning:

 

  • Warning Alarm Present: Battery near end of life. Order replacement battery. 
    • Health: Battery near end of life

 

  • Critical Alarm Present: Battery life exceeded. Order replacement battery
    • Health: Battery lifetime exceeded

 

There is however no SNMP OID that is triggered when these warning and critical messages are displayed on the webgui. upsAdvBatteryReplaceIndicator for both systems shows "1" indicating that the battery doesn't need replacing.

 

Running version AP9630 / v6.5.0 / Firmware Revision UPS 03.5 (ID1015)

Re: SNMP OID for "Battery lifetime exceeded"

Hi @Pietje,

 

I believe this is a lifecycle alarm that's based off the battery age - so it's most likely in reference to the upsAdvBatteryRecommendedReplaceDate oid (.1.3.6.1.4.1.318.1.1.1.2.2.21.0)

 

So this alert is intended as pro-active - the other oids you're looking at are derived from the current battery performance.  As I understand it the intent here is to help you schedule replacements before they're a problem, rather than after.
