That should probably be addressed when we increase the verbosity for OL/OB events. (Github issue #79) The syslog() level LOG_INFO should show up in most syslog configurations.

FYI is the mge-shut driver (over RS232)

I ran the driver at debug level 5 (ie sudo /usr/local/libexec/nut/mge-shut -a ups1 -D -D -D -D -D -u uucp |& tee /tmp/mge-shut.log) and issued the deep & quick battery test commands.

The log file is at http://www.gsoft.com.au/~doconnor/mge-shut.log

OK, hopefully you can glean some intelligence from the log :)
