[aprssig] Repeater 'telemetry'

I would want to know:

* Battery voltage and charge status. Bonus: Battery voltage under load.
* Solar info (whatever that might be, I don't know a lot about solar)
* Output power and SWR.

Of course, all the stuff to do this and make the measurements consumes even more power!

There is a telemetry spec in APRS, and if I recall correctly, you send one packet that defines what the telemetry fields mean, and then another with the actual telemetry data.

 I've taken on an analog repeater project. Since the repeater will be off-grid and somewhat remote, I think it might be a good idea to monitor telemetry over packet or APRS.  What sort of hardware / software combinations are typically used for this type of setup? Mostly, I"m interested in environmentals and things like battery status / charge status, and possibly repeater activity.  I'm pretty sure I can figure it all out, but hoping there might be some established patterns I can copy. Hardware and software skills aren't an issue, and I'm assuming there will be custom interfacing, but I really don't want to build it all from scratch unless necessary.  I'll summarize any responses.
