Management Solutions / Overview

There are two fundamental device management types:

Monitoring and Control

The ability to gather information from and perform actions on Tripp Lite devices. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Displaying device status and metrics
  • Event notification via email / SNMP trap
  • Logging
  • Running self-tests
  • Device configuration
  • Power-cycling outlets

Monitoring and Control generally apply to Tripp Lite PDUs, UPS systems, ATS units, KVMs, COOLNET products, etc.

Automated Shutdown

The ability to gracefully and automatically perform a shutdown for one or more computers when a critical power event occurs. For example, when a UPS system is operating on battery power, one should initiate a graceful shutdown before battery reserves are exhausted.
