Hello, and thank you for writing.

We don't really have a way for you to access our PDUs, but we can give 
you a little information.

Currently we have some tools and a prototype API for IPMI, which we will 
use with our server machines. We would like to integrate an snmp 
back-end to this so that we can also manage PDUs with the same API, and 
then build a simple command-line interface for using that API. A web 
interface would be nice too, but the command line is probably the first 

The IPMI project is on github: https://github.com/osuosl/igor-rest-api
And some experiments with SNMP here: https://github.com/osuosl/snmp_sandbox

The snmp_sandbox repo contains some brainstorm ideas for unified 
ipmi/snmp interface in DESIGN.md, and you will find the mib file and OID 
tree for our PDUs (Sentry 3) in the ref/ directory.

This project is still being refined, we will be adding a more concrete 
set of feature requirements soon, and we are open to ideas for better 
ways to do what we are trying to do.
