NAME

       bbcombotest - Xymon combination test tool

SYNOPSIS

       bbcombotest --help
       bbcombotest --version
       bbcombotest [--debug] [--quiet]

DESCRIPTION

       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
       tests.

       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.

OPTIONS

       --quiet
              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.

       --debug
              Provide debugging output for use in troubleshooting problems with bbcombotest.

       --no-update
              Dont send any status messages - instead, the result of  the  combotests  is  simply
              dumped to stdout. Useful for debugging.
