NUT UPS support

Hi, I know unraid already offers ups support, but it is limited to APC ups's. I propose to add NUT plugin support to a future version. I have running macester's but plugin which works well. I just miss you guys updating the driver version and updates of the plugin itself.

It would be useful for lots of unraid license owners. I assume it does not add to much coding work for you...maybe I am wrong. I keep an eye on what you think about it.

Rgds and great job done in the latest releases of unraid.

I'd also love to see NUT support built in. I'm using a Tripp Lite SMART5000RT3U which obviously isn't supported by APC. Also, since Macester didn't get a chance to include SNMP support before he stopped developing the plugin, I've had to fork his repository and make my own hacks. It works, but I would obviously prefer to be using a supported solution for something as important as UPS monitoring and safe shutdown.


There used to be a similar feature request for baked in NUT back in the unRAID v5 days. If I remember correctly, the talk was of moving away from APC and onto NUT. Last I checked it was still in the "Unscheduled" sub-forum, though I can't seem to find the topic anymore.


Anyway, +1 from me on this.

+1 I have a Tripp Lite, and was using the built-in support. I quit using the built-in support due to USB devices on my VM would cause discommunication with UPS. I thought it was a VM/IRQ sort of "bleed." Unsure of exact cause, but after learning of only APC support, I've let the computer run without UPS communication. I wasn't aware of macester's plugin, I'll have to take a look.


Thank you for your hard work.

+1 I'm running a Liebert GXT2U and actually looking at forking @Ambrotos's fork of @macester's plugin to get the MIB included for my UPS.


NUT is far more flexible than apcupsd.
