NAME

       xymonnet-again.sh - Xymon network re-test tool

SYNOPSIS

       xymonnet-again.sh

DESCRIPTION

       xymonnet-again.sh  is  an extension script for Xymon that runs on the network test server.
       It picks up the failing network tests executed by the  xymonnet(1)  program,  and  repeats
       these  tests  with  a faster test cycle than the normal xymonnet schedule. This means that
       when the server recovers and the network service becomes available again, this is detected
       quicker resulting in less reported downtime.

       Only  tests  whose first failure occurred within 30 minutes are included in the tests that
       are run by xymonnet-again.sh.  The 30 minute limit is there to avoid hosts that  are  down
       for  longer periods of time to bog down xymonnet-again.sh.  You can change this limit with
       the "--frequenttestlimit=SECONDS" when you run xyxmonnet.

INSTALLATION

       This script runs by default from your tasks.cfg(5) file.
