apcupsd-influxdb-exporter

Dockerized Python script that will send data from apcupsd to influxdb.

How to build

Building the image is straight forward:

  • Git clone this repo
  • docker build -t apcupsd-influxdb-exporter .

Environment Variables

These are all the available environment variables, along with some example values, and a description.

Environment Varialbe Example Value Description
WATTS 1000 if your ups doesn't have NOMPOWER, set this to be the rated max power, if you do have NOMPOWER, don't set this variable
APCUPSD_HOST 192.168.1.100 host running apcupsd, defaults to the value of influxdb_host
INFLUXDB_HOST 192.168.1.101 host running influxdb
HOSTNAME unraid host you want to show up in influxdb. Optional, defaults to apcupsd hostname value
INFLUXDB_DATABASE apcupsd db name for influxdb. optional, defaults to apcupsd
INFLUXDB_USER myuser optional, defaults to empty
INFLUXDB_PASSWORD pass optional, defaults to empty
INFLUXDB_PORT 8086 optional, defaults to 8086
INTERVAL 10 optional, defaults to 10 seconds
VERBOSE true if anything but true docker logging will show no output

How to Use

Run docker container directly

docker run --rm  -d --name="apcupsd-influxdb-exporter" \
    -e "WATTS=600" \
    -e "INFLUXDB_HOST=10.0.1.11" \
    -e "APCUPSD_HOST=10.0.1.11" \
    -t atribe/apcupsd-influxdb-exporter

Note: if your UPS does not include the NOMPOWER metric, you will need to include the WATTS environment variable in order to compute the live-power consumption metric.

Run from docker-compose

version: '3'
services:
  apcupsd-influxdb-exporter:
    image: atribe/apcupsd-influxdb-exporter
    container_name: apcupsd-influxdb-exporter
    restart: always
    environment:
      WATTS: 1000
      APCUPSD_HOST: 10.0.1.11
      INFLUXDB_HOST: 10.0.1.11
      INTERVAL: 5

If you want to debug the apcaccess output or the send to influxdb, set the environment variable "VERBOSE" to "true"
