hobbit-ackinfo.cgi - Xymon CGI script to acknowledge alerts
hobbit-ackinfo.cgi is invoked as a CGI script via the hobbit-ackinfo.sh CGI wrapper. hobbit-ackinfo.cgi is used to acknowledge an alert on the Xymon "Critical Systems" view, generated by the hobbit-nkview.cgi(1) utility. This allows the staff viewing the Critical Systems view to acknowledge alerts with a "Level 1" alert, thereby removing the alert from the Critical Systems view. Note that the Level 1 alert generated by the hobbit-ackinfo.cgi utility does NOT stop alerts from being sent. In a future version of Xymon (after Xymon 4.2), this utility will also be used for acknowledging alerts at other levels.
--level=NUMBER Sets the acknowledgment level. This is typically used to force a specific level of the acknowledgment, e.g. a level 1 acknowledge when called from the Critical Systems view. --validity=TIME Sets the validity of the acknowledgment. By default this is taken from the CGI parameters supplied by the user. --sender=STRING Logs STRING as the sender of the acknowledgment. By default, this is taken from the loginname of the webuser sending the acknowledgment. --env=FILENAME Loads the environment defined in FILENAME before executing the CGI script. --area=NAME Load environment variables for a specific area. NB: if used, this option must appear before any --env=FILENAME option. --debug Enables debugging output.
BBHOME Used to locate the template files for the generated web pages. QUERY_STRING Contains the parameters for the CGI script.
