i use apc ups exclusively and it is all i recommend.

i did try nut when it first came out, but i went back to apcupsd.

because, like every else, it has moved to usb.

years back, several of my ee friends and i were sitting around one night just
after usb was first introduced, usb came up in discussions.

after a few had made comments about how great it would be and how much could
be run on it, i said, 'yeah, just like an expressway. it will be great at
night and between towns, but during rush hour, it will get congested.'

your problem may well be because you have too much running under usb.

i have not looked at architecture of usb hardware or drivers, but i would
suggest that you do some separating of devices, especially if you have an
external hub connected, move ups to a controller where it will be by itself.
