Dunno about the Avocent range, but the raritan dominion px range does
proper per-outlet monitoring, and the stats are available via snmp.  APC
PDUs don't, although it's defined in the APC MIB (the values are all zero).
 The Raritan units also monitor more accurately and consistently.

Wood Communications are the local dealer.  As with all things, would advise
getting comparative quotes from online stores before buying.
