NAME

       hobbit-ackinfo.cgi - Xymon CGI script to acknowledge alerts

SYNOPSIS

       hobbit-ackinfo.cgi

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       --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.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       BBHOME Used to locate the template files for the generated web pages.

       QUERY_STRING
              Contains the parameters for the CGI script.
