       bb-rep.cgi - CGI front-end to bbgen reporting


       bb-rep.cgi [--noclean] [bbgen-options]


       bb-rep.cgi  is  invoked  as  a  CGI script via the CGI wrapper.  It triggers the
       generation of a Xymon  availability  report  for  the  timeperiod  specified  by  the  CGI

       bb-rep.cgi is passed a QUERY_STRING environment variable with the following parameters:

          start-mon (Start month of the report)
          start-day (Start day-of-month of the report)
          start-yr  (Start year of the report)
          end-mon   (End month of the report)
          end-day   (End day-of-month of the report)
          end-yr    (End year of the report)
          style     (Report style)

       The following non-standard parameters are handled by the bbgen version of bb-rep.cgi:

          suburl    (Page in report to go to, if not the top page)

       The  "month"  parameters  must  be  specified  as  the  three-letter  english  month  name
       abbreviation: Jan, Feb, Mar ...

       Start- and end-days are in the range 1..31; the start-  and  end-year  must  be  specified
       including century (e.g. "2003").

       End-times beyond the current time are silently replaced with the current time.

       The  generated  report will include data for the start- and end-days, i.e. the report will
       begin at 00:00:00 of the start-day, and end at 23:59:59 of the end-day.

       The "style" parameter is passed directly to bbgen(1) and should be "crit",  "non-crit"  or
       "all". Other values result in undefined behaviour.

       All  of the processing involved in generating the report is done by invoking bbgen(1) with
       the proper "--reportopts" option.


              Do not clean the BBREP directory of old reports. Makes the  report-tool  go  a  bit
              faster - instead, you can clean up the BBREP directory e.g. via a cron-job.

              Load the environment from FILENAME before executing the CGI.

              All  other  options  passed  to  bb-rep.cgi  are  passed on to the bbgen(1) program
              building the report files.

              bbgen options passed by default to the bb-rep.cgi. This happens  in  the

       BBHOME Home directory of the Xymon server installation

       BBREP  Directory  where  generated  reports are stored. This directory must be writable by
              the userid executing  the  CGI  script,  typically  "www",  "apache"  or  "nobody".
              Default: $BBHOME/www/rep/

              The  URL  prefix  to  use  when  accessing  the  reports  via  a browser.  Default:


       bbgen(1), bb-hosts(5), hobbitserver.cfg(5)
