NAME

       hobbitd_history - hobbitd worker module for logging status changes

SYNOPSIS

       hobbitd_channel --channel=stachg hobbitd_history [options]

DESCRIPTION

       hobbitd_history  is  a  worker  module  for  hobbitd, and as such it is
       normally run via the hobbitd_channel(8) program.  It  receives  hobbitd
       status-change  messages  from  the "stachg" channel via stdin, and uses
       these to update the history logfiles in a  manner  that  is  compatible
       with the standard Big Brother daemon, bbd.

OPTIONS

       --histdir=DIRECTORY
              The  directory  for  the  history  files.  If not specified, the
              directory given by the BBHIST environment is used.

       --histlogdir=DIRECTORY
              The directory for the historical status-logs. If not  specified,
              the directory given by the BBHISTLOGS environment is used.

       --debug
              Enable debugging output.

ENVIRONMENT

       BBALLHISTLOG
              This  environment  variable  controls  if  the $BBHIST/allevents
              logfile is updated. This file is used by the  event-log  display
              on the BB2 html page. If you do not use this, you can disable it
              by setting BBALLHISTLOGS=FALSE.

       BBHOSTHISTLOG
              This  environment  variable  controls  if  the  $BBHIST/HOSTNAME
              logfile is updated. This file holds a list of all status changes
              seen for a single host, but is not used by any of  the  standard
              Xymon tools. If you do not want to save this, you can disable it
              by setting BBHOSTHISTLOG=FALSE.

       SAVESTATUSLOG
              This environment variable controls if the historical status-logs
              are  saved  whenever  a status change occurs. These logfiles are
              stored in the  $BBHISTLOGS  directory,  and  are  used  for  the
              detailed  log-display of a status from the Xymon "History" page.
              If you do not want to save these, you can disable it by  setting
              SAVESTATUSLOG=FALSE.

FILES

       This module does not rely on any configuration files.
