Hello, I noticed that MaaS has support for controlling PDU via SNMP. What this topic is about is monitoring UPS signal(network, USB, serial, whatever) and sending shutdown signals via MAAS configured power type to maas controlled nodes. This way one can leverage MAAS to monitor rack UPS and send shutdown signals to tagged/configured nodes on the rack.
Rack with MaaS managed nodes all connected to the same UPS(or individually configured UPS’s).
MaaS monitors UPS for power outage signal or UPS sends power outage signal to MaaS.
When a power outage occurs, MaaS sends shutdown signals to nodes with a configured PowerType.
Additional features could be the ability to configure multiple UPS’s and tag the UPS with the nodes it controls or tag the node with the UPS controlling it. This way a region controller can control multiple UPS’s.
Thank you for your feedback and consideration.
