Yes, the PID is there:

$ sudo ls -l /var/state/ups/
total 16
srw-rw----  1 _ups  _nut  0  6 Mar 11:40 bcmxcp_usb-powerware5115
-rw-r--r--  1 _ups  _nut  6  6 Mar 11:40 bcmxcp_usb-powerware5115.pid
-rw-r--r--  1 _ups  _nut  6  6 Mar 02:03 upsd.pid

$ sudo less /var/state/ups/bcmxcp_usb-powerware5115.pid

I tried inlining the config.log but message was rejected due to size. It's attached as gzip instead.
