I would like to add a sentence to the man page for upssched.conf.
After the sentence
"Note that any AT that matches both the notifytype and the upsname for the
current event will be used."
I propose adding the sentence
"If more than one AT matches the notifytype and upsname, the AT
declarations are executed in the order in which they appear in
This is the current behaviour so there is nothing to do technically, but I
would like this behaviour to become recognized and permanent, and not
unofficial and possibly ephemeral as at present.
Why? The current behaviour makes it possible to restart a timer on a
given event, for example by writing
AT ONBATT heartbeat at localhost CANCEL-TIMER heartbeat-failure
AT ONBATT heartbeat at localhost START-TIMER heartbeat-failure 660
For this to work, it is essential that the AT's are executed in the order
they are written.
