Every log interval, each variable is fetched from the server, and if there is an error retrieving that value at that time, "NA" is logged:


Since they are all "NA" at the same time, it is likely that there is a communication problem, either between upslog and upsd, or between upsd and the driver. In either case, there is probably a syslog message describing the problem in more detail.
