Perl script to shutdown VM's on ESXi 6.5

I use this script to shutdown all my VM's when UPS battery is low, or when I need to do updates on my NAS'

#!/usr/bin/perl

# Get list of ALL VM's
# (\d{1,2})\s+([\w\d\-]+).*\n

$cmdvmlist = "vim-cmd vmsvc/getallvms";

# RegEX for running VM's
# ([\d]+\-[\w\d\s\.]+)\n\s+World ID:\s(\d+)

$cmdvmrunning = "esxcli vm process list";

$esxhost = "root\@192.168.1.26";

$vmlist = `ssh $esxhost $cmdvmlist`;

#print $vmlist;

# ([\d]+\-[\w\d\s\.]+)\n\s+World ID:\s(\d+)

my @shutdownorder;

$count=0;

print "VM Inventory on $esxhost\n";

while ($vmlist =~ /(\d{1,2})\s+([\w\d\-]+).*\n/g)
        {

        # Don't shutdown the VM running this script until last as it also controls APCUPSD

        if ($1 != 30)
                {
                $shutdownorder[$count] = $1;
                $shutdownordername[$count] = $2;
                $count++;
                }

        }

print "VMID\tName\n";

my $index;
for my $order (@shutdownorder) {
  print "$order \t $shutdownordername[$index++]\n";
}

# If shutdown argument is present, shutdown VM's

if ($ARGV[0] eq "shutdown")
        {
        open (my $fh, '>', "/tmp/esxhostscript");

        print "\nCreating Script for ESX Host\nUploading ";

        while (@shutdownorder)
                {
                $vm = shift(@shutdownorder);

                print $fh "vim-cmd vmsvc/power.shutdown $vm\n";
                }

        close $fh;

        # Copy script to ESX Host

        system("scp","/tmp/esxhostscript","root\@192.168.1.26:/tmp/esxhostscript");

        # Add Execute Permission

        system("ssh","root\@192.168.1.26","chmod +x /tmp/esxhostscript");

        # Execute Script

        system("ssh","root\@192.168.1.26","/tmp/esxhostscript");

        print "Waiting for VM's to shutdown\n";
        $timeout = 300;

        while (CheckRunning())
                {
                print "$timeout ";
                sleep 5;
                $timeout=$timeout-5;
                if ($timeout<=0){exit;}
                }
        print "\n\n";

        }

else
        {
        printf "shutdown argument not passed, no action taken\n"
        }


sub CheckRunning
        {

        $vmrun = `ssh $esxhost $cmdvmrunning`;

        while ($vmrun =~ /([\d]+\-[\w\d\s\.]+)\n\s+World ID:\s(\d+)/g)
                {

                if ($1 ne "0-Control")
                        {
                        return 1;
                        }
                }
        return 0;
        }

To start them backup I use the autostart script on the ESXi Host:

ssh root@192.168.1.26 /sbin/vmware-autostart.sh start
