NAME

       bbcombotest - Hobbit combination test tool

SYNOPSIS

       bbcombotest --help
       bbcombotest --version
       bbcombotest [--debug] [--quiet]

DESCRIPTION

       bbcombotest  is  a  Hobbit  extension script that runs on the BBDISPLAY
       server.  It combines the results of one or more of  the  normal  Hobbit
       test  results into a combined test result, using standard arithmetic og
       logical operators.

       The resulting tests are sent to the Hobbit display server as any normal
       test  -  so  all  of the standard Hobbit functions (history, statistics
       etc.) are available for the combined tests.

       The tool was born from  the  need  to  monitor  systems  with  built-in
       redundancy  and  automatic  failover  - e.g. load-balanced web servers.
       But other uses are possible.

OPTIONS

       --quiet
              Normally,  the  test  status  sent   by   bbcombotest   includes
              information  about the underlying test results used to determine
              the current value of the  combined  test.  "--quiet"  eliminates
              this information from the test status page.

       --debug
              Provide  debugging  output  for  use in troubleshooting problems
              with bbcombotest.

       --no-update
              Dont send any status messages  -  instead,  the  result  of  the
              combotests is simply dumped to stdout. Useful for debugging.
