[clug] snmp equipped UPS's

Hi again Rob,

I've setup APC's network management cards, (a $400+ option in their rack and
tower series) and monitor those with Nagios and MRTG via an snmp bash
script.  The gear at site doesn't have any shutdown requirements (not PCs),
we're mostly monitoring input power and battery level/runtime, plus those
are environmental cards ($600+), so we get to chart and monitor temperature
and humidity too :)

The APC cards in particular are a bit expensive unless you are using a very
heavy duty UPS, or don't have a linux box to run nut on.  Lately we've found
that smaller units running local management is the cheaper option, it saves
you running your switch on a UPS too.
