does the UPS reports stats? or is it completely dumb? eg, APC SmartUPS
will tell you percentage load, time battery'd last for on current
otherwise you're going to have it do it manually, ie find the
average/peak current draw or power consumption of each device and add
them up, see how it compares to the UPSs rated peak draw and VA*hours.
