       ghostlist.cgi - CGI program to view ghost clients




       ghostlist.cgi is invoked as a CGI script via the CGI wrapper.

       It  generates  a listing of the Xymon clients that have reported data to the Xymon server,
       but are not listed in the hosts.cfg(5) file. Data from these clients - called  "ghosts"  -
       are ignored, since Xymon does not know which webpage to present the data on.

       The  listing  includes the hostname that the client reports with, the IP-address where the
       report came from, and how long ago the report arrived.

       By far the most common reason for hosts showing up here is that the client uses a hostname
       without  a  DNS  domain,  but the hosts.cfg file uses the hostname with the DNS domain. Or
       vice versa. You can then use a CLIENT setting in the  hosts.cfg  file  to  match  the  two
       hostnames together.


              Loads the environment defined in FILENAME before executing the CGI script.
