Real-Time Data Monitoring for PDU, UPS, and CRACs

This plugin enables real-time monitoring and retrieval of data from Power Distribution Units (PDUs), Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS), and Computer Room Air Conditioning (CRAC) units within a data center environment. By utilizing industry-standard protocols such as SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) or API integration, this plugin provides a comprehensive view of critical infrastructure metrics, including power consumption, temperature, humidity, and device status. The plugin enhances NetBox's functionality by adding a centralized monitoring system that enables administrators to monitor and analyze the performance of PDUs, UPSs, and CRACs seamlessly.
