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may now be out-of-date.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
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.
