Actually, the pkg-message is out of date. Ugen is what you want.  The
latest port works well with single and multiple UPSes on the bus.

For a simple UPS config, the following below works well.  (Basically
leave DEVICE with nothing after it)


## apcupsd.conf v1.1 ##

For multiple batteries to monitor use the serial # which you can get
from  usbconfig dump_device_desc

# usbconfig | grep RS
ugen0.3: <Back-UPS RS 1500 FW8.g9a.D USB FWg9a American Power
Conversion> at usbus0, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=LOW (1.5Mbps) pwr=ON
ugen0.4: <Back-UPS RS 1500 FW8.g9 .D USB FWg9 American Power Conversion>
at usbus0, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=LOW (1.5Mbps) pwr=ON
ugen0.5: <Back-UPS RS 1500 FW8.g9a.D USB FWg9a American Power

0(backup3)# usbconfig -d 0.5 dump_device_desc
ugen0.5: <Back-UPS RS 1500 FW8.g9a.D USB FWg9a American Power

  bLength = 0x0012
  bDescriptorType = 0x0001
  bcdUSB = 0x0110
  bDeviceClass = 0x0000
  bDeviceSubClass = 0x0000
  bDeviceProtocol = 0x0000
  bMaxPacketSize0 = 0x0008
  idVendor = 0x051d
  idProduct = 0x0002
  bcdDevice = 0x0106
  iManufacturer = 0x0003  <American Power Conversion>
  iProduct = 0x0001  <Back-UPS RS 1500 FW:8.g9a.D USB FW:g9a>
  iSerialNumber = 0x0002  <8B0736R21784  >
  bNumConfigurations = 0x0001

0(backup3)#



eg. if I have 3 UPSes connected, with the serial #s 8B0736R21784 and
JB0524026679 and 8B0736R21792

Create 3 separate copies of the apcupsd, and in each of the unique
config files, put the serial # in for the device, and then increase the
NIS port by one so the daemons dont clash as well as appropriate paths
in the conf file.

-NISPORT 3551
+NISPORT 3552

root     45875  0.0  0.0 13176  1456  ??  Is   23Oct12   0:37.59 apcupsd
-f /usr/local/etc/apcupsd.a/apcupsd.conf
root     45877  0.0  0.0 12792  1136  ??  Is   23Oct12   0:58.62 apcupsd
-f /usr/local/etc/apcupsd.b/apcupsd.conf
root     45880  0.0  0.0 12792  1280  ??  Is   23Oct12   1:32.63 apcupsd
-f /usr/local/etc/apcupsd.c/apcupsd.conf


You can then poll each device
