NAME

       bbretest-net.sh - Xymon network re-test tool

SYNOPSIS

       bbretest-net.sh

DESCRIPTION

       bbretest-net.sh is an extension script for Xymon that runs on the network test server.  It
       picks up the failing network tests executed by  the  bbtest-net(1)  program,  and  repeats
       these  tests with a faster test cycle than the normal bbtest-net schedule. This means that
       when the server recovers and the network service becomes available again, this is detected
       quicker resulting in less reported downtime.

       Only  tests  whose first failure occurred within 30 minutes are included in the tests that
       are run by bbretest-net.sh.  The 30 minute limit is there to avoid hosts that are down for
       longer  periods  of  time to bog down bbretest-net.sh.  You can change this limit with the
       "--frequenttestlimit=SECONDS" when you run bbtest-net.

INSTALLATION

       This script runs by default from your hobbitlaunch.cfg(5) file.
