NAME

       hobbit-ackinfo.cgi - Hobbit CGI script to acknowledge alerts

SYNOPSIS

       hobbit-ackinfo.cgi

DESCRIPTION

       hobbit-ackinfo.cgi is invoked as a CGI script via the hobbit-ackinfo.sh
       CGI wrapper.

       hobbit-ackinfo.cgi is used  to  acknowledge  an  alert  on  the  Hobbit
       "Critical Systems" view, generated by the hobbit-nkview.cgi(1) utility.
       This allows the staff viewing the Critical Systems view to  acknowledge
       alerts  with  a  "Level  1"  alert, thereby removing the alert from the
       Critical Systems view.

       Note that the Level 1 alert generated by the hobbit-ackinfo.cgi utility
       does NOT stop alerts from being sent.

       In  a  future  version  of Hobbit (after Hobbit 4.2), this utility will
       also be used for acknowledging alerts at other levels.

OPTIONS

       --level=NUMBER
              Sets the acknowledgment level. This is typically used to force a
              specific level of the acknowledgment, e.g. a level 1 acknowledge
              when called from the Critical Systems view.

       --validity=TIME
              Sets the validity of the  acknowledgment.  By  default  this  is
              taken from the CGI parameters supplied by the user.

       --sender=STRING
              Logs  STRING  as  the  sender of the acknowledgment. By default,
              this is taken from the loginname  of  the  webuser  sending  the
              acknowledgment.

       --env=FILENAME
              Loads  the  environment defined in FILENAME before executing the
              CGI script.

       --area=NAME
              Load environment variables for a specific  area.  NB:  if  used,
              this option must appear before any --env=FILENAME option.

       --debug
              Enables debugging output.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       BBHOME Used to locate the template files for the generated web pages.

       QUERY_STRING
              Contains the parameters for the CGI script.
