       bbcombotest  is  a  Xymon extension script that runs on the BBDISPLAY server.  It combines
       the results of one or more of the normal Xymon test results into a combined  test  result,
       using standard arithmetic og logical operators.

       The  resulting  tests  are sent to the Xymon display server as any normal test - so all of
       the standard Xymon functions (history, statistics etc.) are  available  for  the  combined

       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.
