Description : Centralized Power Distribution Unit (PDU) management

PowerMan is a tool for manipulating Power Distribution Units (PDUs) from a
central location. It is suitable for remote operation in data centers or
compute cluster environment.
Several RPC varieties are supported natively by PowerMan and
Expect-like configurability simplifies the addition of new devices.
This package includes support for Genders, HTTP devices and Curses user

Side notes:
- I'm in touch with the upstream maintainer (Jim Garlick),
- a new release is scheduled with some fixes planned, following my recent audit,
- a client library (libpowerman) will soon be available, to allow the
remote manipulation of a Powerman daemon,
- an integration of this library is underway in the Network UPS Tools.
