NAME

       findhost.cgi - Xymon CGI script to find hosts

SYNOPSIS

       findhost.cgi?host=REGEX

DESCRIPTION

       findhost.cgi is invoked as a CGI script via the findhost.sh CGI wrapper.

       findhost.cgi   is  passed  a  QUERY_STRING  environment  variable  with  the  "host=REGEX"
       parameter. The REGEX is  a  Posix  regular  expression  (see  regex(7)  )  describing  the
       hostnames  to look for.  A trailing wildcard is assumed on all hostnames - e.g. requesting
       the hostname "www" will match any host whose name begins with "www".

       It then produces a single web page, listing all of the  hosts  that  matched  any  of  the
       hostnames, with links to the Xymon webpages where they are located.

       The output page lists hosts in the order they appear in the hosts.cfg(5) file.

       A  sample  web page implementing the search facility is included with xymongen, you access
       it via the URL /xymon/help/findhost.html.
