NAME

       hobbitd_client - hobbitd worker module for client data

SYNOPSIS

       hobbitd_channel --channel=client hobbitd_client [options]

DESCRIPTION

       hobbitd_client  is  a  worker  module  for  hobbitd,  and as such it is
       normally run via the hobbitd_channel(8) program.  It  receives  hobbitd
       client  messages  sent  from  systems  that  have  the the Xymon client
       installed, and use  the  client  data  to  generate  the  Xymon  status
       messages  for the cpu-, disk-, memory- and procs-columns. It also feeds
       Xymon data messages with the netstat- and vmstat-data collected by  the
       client.

       When   generating   these   status   messages  from  the  client  data,
       hobbitd_client will use the configuration rules defined in the  hobbit-
       clients.cfg(5) file to determine the color of each status message.

OPTIONS

       --clear-color=COLOR
              Define  the  color  used when sending "msgs", "files" or "ports"
              reports and there are no rules to check for these statuses.  The
              default  is  to show a "clear" status, but some people prefer to
              have it "green".  If you would rather prefer not  to  see  these
              status  columns  at all, then you can use the "--no-clear-msgs",
              "--no-clear-files" and "--no-clear-ports" options instead.

       --no-clear-msgs
              If there are no logfile checks, the "msgs" column  will  show  a
              "clear"  status.  If  you  would  rather  avoid  having a "msgs"
              column, this option causes hobbitd_client to not send in a clear
              "msgs" status.

       --no-clear-files
              If  there  are  no  file  checks, the "files" column will show a
              "clear" status. If you  would  rather  avoid  having  a  "files"
              column, this option causes hobbitd_client to not send in a clear
              "files" status.

       --no-clear-ports
              If there are no port checks, the  "ports"  column  will  show  a
              "clear"  status.  If  you  would  rather  avoid having a "ports"
              column, this option causes hobbitd_client to not send in a clear
              "ports" status.

       --no-ps-listing
              Normally  the  "procs" status message includes the full process-
              listing received from the client. If you prefer to just have the
              monitored  processes  shown,  this option will turn off the full
              ps-listing.

       --no-port-listing
              Normally the "ports" status message includes the  full  netstat-
              listing received from the client. If you prefer to just have the
              monitored ports shown,  this  option  will  turn  off  the  full
              netstat-listing.

       --config=FILENAME
              Sets  the  filename for the hobbit-clients.cfg file. The default
              value  is  "etc/hobbit-clients.cfg"  below  the   Xymon   server
              directory.

       --dump-config
              Dumps the configuration after parsing it. May be useful to track
              down problems with configuration file errors.

       --test Starts an interactive session where you  can  test  the  hobbit-
              clients.cfg configuration.

       --debug
              Enable debugging output.
