Hello Arjen, I live in the Alpes Maritimes in the south of France. This
is an area with frequent electrical storms, plenty of lightning and it is
common to have several short power cuts in succession during a storm. My
strategy is to tolerate short power cuts, up to 120 seconds, but if the
power cut lasts longer I tell my users, in french not english, that the
system is shutting down, and I give them 2 minutes to save their work.
My time intervals are short because I want to be able to go through the
shutdown-restart sequence several times without having time to recharge
If I lived say in Paris the strategy would be different since there they
have much less lightning.
My successive installations of NUT have left me with an accumulation of
configuration files which have built up over the years. They could do
with a thorough cleanup. I'll have a close look at the upsmon.conf.rpmnew
which has appeared.
