NAME

       hobbitclient.cfg - Xymon client environment variables

DESCRIPTION

       Xymon programs use multiple environment variables beside the normal set
       of variables.  For the Xymon client, the  environment  definitions  are
       stored  in  the  ~xymon/client/etc/hobbitclient.cfg file.  Each line in
       this file is  of  the  form  NAME=VALUE  and  defines  one  environment
       variable NAME with the value VALUE.

SETTINGS

       BBDISP The IP-address used to contact the Xymon server. Default: Chosen
              when the Xymon client was compiled.

       BBDISPLAYS
              List of IP-adresses of Xymon servers. Data will be sent  to  all
              of  the  servers  listed  here.  This  setting  is  only used if
              BBDISP=0.0.0.0.

       BBPORT The portnumber for used to contact the Xymon  server.   Default:
              1984.

       BBHOME The    Xymon    client   top-level   directory.   Default:   The
              $HOBBITCLIENTHOME  setting  inherited  from  the  "runclient.sh"
              script which starts the Xymon client.

       BBCLIENTLOGS
              The  directory  for  the  Xymon  clients' own logfiles. Default:

       BBTMP  Directory used for temporary files. Default: $BBHOME/tmp/

       BB     Full path to the bb(1) client program. Default: $BBHOME/bin/bb.

       Commands
              Many extension scripts expect a series of environment  variables
              to  point at various system utilities. These are included in the
              file when the client is built.

INHERITED SETTINGS

       Some environment variables are inherited from the "runclient.sh" script
       which launches the Xymon client:

       MACHINEDOTS
              The  hostname  of  the  local system. Default: Taken from "uname
              -n".

       MACHINE
              The hostname of the local system, with dots replaced by  commas.
              For compatibility with Big Brother extension scripts.

       BBOSTYPE
              The operating system of the local system, in lowercase. Default:
              taken from "uname -s".

       HOBBITCLIENTHOME
              The top-level directory  for  the  Xymon  client.  Default:  The
              location of the "runclient.sh" script.
