Software for monitoring multiple APC UPS systems

I would like to find out if there is an app that our customer can use to monitor the status of multiple APC UPSs over the network at the same time.  All UPSs are by APC and are equipped with the network management cards.  Customer can access the UPS status via NMC but only one at a time.  APC PowerChute Network Shutdown (PCNS) is currently installed on all the servers and workstations.  APC told me there is no app that APC has that would allow us monitor all UPSs from one interface.  This can't be the first time a customer asks for such an application.  This customer has multiple sites with about 5 APC UPSs per standalone site.

Re: Software for monitoring multiple APC UPS systems

@Omaelk @sesa116209_brid or others

 

Any word on how to monitor the status of multiple APC UPSs? 

 

We face the same challenge, having around 50 different locations throughout the country with each one server and one APC UPS. At the moment the servers are running APC PowerChute Business Edition v7.00. Ofcourse we need to upgrade the version but we also want manage/monitor the UPSs from one interface. 

 

Looking forward to an answer/advice.

@Menno , fyi I did not receive any solutions as a result of this post, the customer is still logging into 1 UPS at a time.  Thanks.

Today at least, there is no APC community here. You may want to visit https://forums.apc.com/ and post your question there.

Thank you, I wish someone told me that a little shy of a year ago.
