[mrtg] MRTG and APC UPS

Hi all,

I want to monitor my APC Smart-UPS RT 5000 XL and APC Environmental
Management System (EMS) AP 9320 using MRTG (Windows Platform). I've
researched quite a lot, but still have some problems.

Do you know what OIDs are available for them? Or maybe an example MRTG
cfg file? I have found the following for the UPS:

Runtime in minutes:
Unfortunately, the retrieved value is of no use, since MRTG doesn't
understand what '0:30:00' means (30 minutes) and I get a nice ERROR:
Target[ups_1][_IN_] ' $$target[0]{$mode} ' did not eval into defined data
I could do a script to parse this, and have been investigating, I found a
snmpget for Windows (net-snmp), but haven't been able to get anything from
the UPS via command line. Strange. Using getif I can connect to it via SNMP.

Temperature (celcius):
It "seems" to work (no error) but all I get is 0.

Voltage (volts):
It "seems" to work (no error) but all I get is 0.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. I'm sure someone out there has
solved this before.
