       hobbitsvc.cgi - CGI program to view Xymon status logs


       hobbitsvc.cgi [--hobbitd|--historical] [--history={top|bottom}]


       hobbitsvc.cgi  is  a  CGI program to present a Xymon status log in HTML form (ie, as a web
       page). It can be used both for the logs showing the current  status,  and  for  historical
       logs from the "histlogs" directory. It is normally invoked as a CGI program, and therefore
       receives most of the input parameters via the CGI QUERY_STRING environment variable.

       Unless the "--historical" option is present, the current status log is used. This  assumes
       a QUERY_STRING environment variable of the form
       where "hostname" is the name of the host with commas instead of dots, and "servicename" is
       the name of the service  (the  column  name  in  Xymon).   Such  links  are  automatically
       generated by the bbgen(1) tool when the environment contains "BBLOGSTATUS=dynamic".

       With  the  "--historical"  option  present,  a  historical logfile is used. This assumes a
       QUERY_STRING environment variable of the form
       where "hostname" is the name of the host with commas instead of dots, "servicename" is the
       name  of  the  service,  and  "timestamp"  is  the  time of the log. This is automatically
       generated by the bb-hist.cgi(1) tool.


              Retrieve the current status log from hobbitd(1) rather than from the logfile.  This
              is for use with the Xymon daemon from the Xymon monitor version 4.

              Use a historical logfile instead of the current logfile.

              When  showing  the  current  logfile,  provide a "HISTORY" button at the top or the
              bottom of the webpage, or not at all. The default is to put the HISTORY  button  at
              the bottom of the page.

              Load the environment from FILENAME before executing the CGI.

              Where  to  look  for the HTML header- and footer-templates used when generating the
              webpages. Default: $BBHOME/web/

              Do not include the HTML tags to identify the hostname/service on the generated  web
              page.  Useful  is  this  already  happens  in the hostsvc_header template file, for

              This causes hobbitsvc.cgi to generate links to service graphs  that  are  split  up
              into  multiple  images,  with at most 5 graphs per image. This option only works in
              Xymon mode. If not specified, only the "disk" status is split up this way.

              By default, the info-column page includes a form allowing users to disable and  re-
              enable  tests.  If  your  setup uses the default separation of administration tools
              into a separate, password- protected area, then use of  the  disable-  and  enable-
              functions  requires  access  to  the administration tools. If you prefer to do this
              only via the dedicated administration page, this option will  remove  the  disable-
              function from the info page.

              The disable-function on the info-column page by default uses JavaScript to validate
              the form before submitting the input to the Xymon server.  However,  some  browsers
              cannot  handle the Javascript code correctly so the form does not work. This option
              disables the use of Javascript for form-validation, allowing these browsers to  use
              the disable-function.

              A  comma-separated list of services that does not have meaningful history, e.g. the
              "info" and "trends" columns. Services listed here do not get a "History" button.

              A comma-separated list of the tests that have an RRD graph.
