Hi Markus,

thanks for having cc'ed the list ;-)

if apcupsd can do it, NUT can do it too ;-)

the last self test report should already be available through
ups.test.result (linked to the HID path UPS.Battery.Test, with the current
value "No test initiated").

I've just commited a patch that adds:
- input.transfer.reason
- input.sensitivity (which is settable)

can you test the development version (Subversion trunk, r1952) to validate
Some helpful info are available here:

please send back an upsc output too.

if you still see differences with apcupsd, please tell me back. It's quite
possible that I've missed something more about how APC units work.


thanks for these data.
