Sure, but the issue is that the nut driver and upsd are correctly
reporting an ALARM condition, but upsmon is not reacting to it.  I don't
see offhand anything in upsmon.conf to do something with ALARM.

I suggest:

1) replacing the battery ASAP (or buy a modern AVR UPS for not much more)

2) can we simulate an ALARM condition with the dummy-ups driver to debug
upsmon (or its configuration)?
