I have various UPS devices all over the world and would love to have the same visibility into their status as you provide for the APC devices. Currently we have many Phoenixtec Power/XPC that I have created a Universal Poller for and it pulls most of the same information that the APC Universal Poller did. However, it is not a built-in like the APC. It would seem that if you are using the OID/MIB to poll for the info you are then manipulating into the APC display, then it should be fairly easy to allow user input of the root OID/MIB they would like polled and displayed. Like APC is 318, and PPC is 935, Eaton is 534, MST is 13409, SANTAK is 3941, etc...
So, one would think that, replacing those base numbers in the APC widget or dashboard if it is using the RFC1628 for UPS devices should pretty much make it a plug and play swap on the Manufacturer which should essentially result in the same display for each of the vendors without too much difficulty.
And if you can't do it this way, please consider this a request to get the APC dashboard/widget working with a pulldown for selecting the vendor that can use a subroutine to accomplish essentially the same thing.
