       bbcombotest - Hobbit combination test tool


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


       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.


              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.

              Provide  debugging  output  for  use in troubleshooting problems
              with bbcombotest.

              Dont send any status messages  -  instead,  the  result  of  the
              combotests is simply dumped to stdout. Useful for debugging.
