fence_eps — Fence agent for ePowerSwitch

Description

fence_eps  is an I/O Fencing agent which can be used with the ePowerSwitch 8M+ power switch to fence connected machines. Fence agent works ONLY on 8M+ device, because this is only one, which has support for hidden page feature.

Agent basically works by connecting to hidden page and pass appropriate arguments to GET request. This means, that hidden page feature must be enabled and properly configured.

fence_eps accepts options on the command line as well as from stdin. Fenced sends parameters through stdin when it execs the agent. fence_eps can be run by itself with command line options.  This is useful for testing and for turning outlets on or off from scripts.
