A powerful power management application subsuming Synology Diskstation's integrated one and enabling the administrator to perform automatic on-demand power up and shut down of the Diskstation, based on simple rules.
It also enables to derogate to a program, typically by allowing hibernation to occur (typically used when leaving home for the vacations), suspend the current schedule until told you (typically used when performing administration tasks), but also shut down the Diskstation conditionally, typically once network or disk activity are below a given threshold (typically used when streaming videos or music to a TV or performing a backup to an external disk).
You may install this software using DSM's Package Center (3rd Party provider http://www.cphub.net/).
- Beginner's mode (1 schedule per day)
- Expert mode (fully customizable schedule over a year)
- Shutdown on network or disk inactivity option (very useful when downloading/streaming)
- Hibernation (derogates the schedule until a given date, very useful for vacations)
- Suspend (suspends the schedule until manual shutdown)
- User interface available in german, dutch, french, dansk and english
Really nice project! Thanks for your job!
Works nicely! Gracias!
Great tool for conditional shutdown. It allows you to shut down the NAS at, let's say 22h. But you can set it to check for a certain amount of network or disk activity. For instance if you stream a video off you NAS every once in a while. You don't want the NAS to power down half-way during a romantic movie, a sure fired way to spoil any chances of more exciting things happening during the rest of the evening. So at that time, it shuts down once the video ends. That way, you don't have to adjust your schedule to the latest time that you think you will watch a movie. In my scenario this saves me an additional 4h of uptime each day.
very powerful tool for the work on schedule, works quickly and without errors!
advpowermgr4ds works perfectly.
This is great. I don't understand why Synology does not have it in its firmwares.
