Hi all,
I'm using Nut v2.7.3 on my Linux server to monitor two UPS at the same
time, which are used to secure several different network devices. This
set-up works fine for several month now.
Due to the fact that different devices, connected to different UPS
are generating a different load, the batteries of each UPS are
discharged with a different speed.
I now want to react on the events of each of the UPS separately by
creating dedicated entries in the upsshed.conf file. As far as I
understood that should be possible without greater problems except
for one thing - the forced shutdown. The command "upsmon -c fsd"
forces all UPS to shutdown at the same time.

Now I wonder why it isn't possible to send a forced shutdown command
to a specific UPS only. Have I missed some specific information in the
documentation or has indeed no-one requested this kind of feature

I wasn't able to find an answer for this question on the Internet, so
I hope that someone on this mailing list could answer my question.
