Uninterruptible Power Supply (upsmib) Charter

NOTE: This charter is accurate as of the 37th IETF Meeting in San Jose. It may now be out-of-date. (Consider this a "snapshot" of the working group from that meeting.) Up-to-date charters for all active working groups can be found elsewhere in this Web server.

Description of Working Group

This working group will produce a document that defines MIB objects for use in monitoring and (possibly) controlling both high- and low-end UPSs and related systems (e.g., power distribution systems or power conditioning systems). Related devices may be addressed in this effort to the extent that the primary focus on UPSs is not compromised.

The MIB object definitions produced will be for use by SNMP and will be consistent with existing SNMP standards and framework.

At its discretion, the working group may fulfill its charter by the development of distinct MIB definitions for UPS systems of differing capabilities, but the number of MIB definitions produced by the working group will not exceed two.

At its discretion, the working group may produce an additional document defining traps that support the management of UPSs.

Although the working group may choose to solicit input or expertise from other relevant standards bodies, no extant standards efforts or authorities are known with which alignment of this work is required.

Because the structure of UPS implementations varies widely, the working group shall take special care that its definitions reflect a generic and consistent architectural model of UPS management rather than the structure of particular UPS implementations.
