NAME

       xymond_hostdata - xymond worker module for storing historical client data

SYNOPSIS

       xymond_channel --channel=clichg xymond_hostdata

DESCRIPTION

       xymond_hostdata  is  a  worker  module  for xymond, and as such it is normally run via the
       xymond_channel(8) program. Whenever a status column in Xymon changes  to  an  alert  state
       (usually  red,  yellow  or purple), this module receives a copy of the latest Xymon client
       data sent by the host, and stores it on disk. This allows you to review all  of  the  data
       collected by the Xymon client on the server around the time that a problem occurred.  This
       can make troubleshooting incidents easier by providing  a  snapshot  of  the  host  status
       shortly before a problem became apparent.

       Note: This module requires that xymond(8) is launched with the "--store-clientlogs" option
       enabled.

OPTIONS

       --minimum-free=N
              Sets the minimum percentage of free filesystem space on the $CLIENTLOGS  directory.
              If  there  is  less  than  N%  free  space, xymond_hostdata will not save the data.
              Default: 5

       --debug
              Enable debugging output.

FILES

       All of the host data are stored in the $CLIENTLOGS  directory,  by  default  this  is  the
       $XYMONVAR/hostdata/ directory.
