I had a couple APC units with the SNMP cards, used APC Network shutdown
on the systems, worked pretty well. only downside was tryin to get
java workin on some of the more obscure platforms(AIX 4.3, Solaris 2.5-2.6,
Tru64). On debian and redhat it was a snap though. solaris 7 and 8 was
pretty easy too.

I haven't tried the load estimator. my biggest APC unit was a 2200 with
2 rackmount battery packs, at about 60% load it gave me approx 2 and
a half hours of runtime. Keep in mind that the rackmount battery packs
count as 2 battery packs, so when configuring the UPS to make it aware
of the battery packs double the amount if its a rackmount(4 batteries
vs 2 in the floor models).

the 1500AVR has a fan but doesn't kick in unless it gets real warm. I
emailed cyberpower's support and they said my temps were normal. The 900
AVRs that I have do not have cooling.
