NAME

       hobbitd_client - hobbitd worker module for client data

SYNOPSIS

       hobbitd_channel --channel=client hobbitd_client [options]

DESCRIPTION

       hobbitd_client  is  a  worker  module  for hobbitd, and as such it is normally run via the
       hobbitd_channel(8) program. It receives hobbitd client messages  sent  from  systems  that
       have  the the Xymon client installed, and use the client data to generate the Xymon status
       messages for the cpu-, disk-, memory- and procs-columns. It also feeds Xymon data messages
       with the netstat- and vmstat-data collected by the client.

       When  generating  these  status messages from the client data, hobbitd_client will use the
       configuration rules defined in the hobbit-clients.cfg(5) file to determine  the  color  of
       each status message.

OPTIONS

       --clear-color=COLOR
              Define the color used when sending "msgs", "files" or "ports" reports and there are
              no rules to check for these statuses. The default is to show a "clear" status,  but
              some people prefer to have it "green".  If you would rather prefer not to see these
              status columns at all, then you can use the  "--no-clear-msgs",  "--no-clear-files"
              and "--no-clear-ports" options instead.

       --no-clear-msgs
              If  there  are  no logfile checks, the "msgs" column will show a "clear" status. If
              you would rather avoid having a "msgs" column, this option causes hobbitd_client to
              not send in a clear "msgs" status.

       --no-clear-files
              If  there are no file checks, the "files" column will show a "clear" status. If you
              would rather avoid having a "files" column, this option  causes  hobbitd_client  to
              not send in a clear "files" status.

       --no-clear-ports
              If  there are no port checks, the "ports" column will show a "clear" status. If you
              would rather avoid having a "ports" column, this option  causes  hobbitd_client  to
              not send in a clear "ports" status.

       --no-ps-listing
              Normally the "procs" status message includes the full process-listing received from
              the client. If you prefer to just have the monitored processes shown,  this  option
              will turn off the full ps-listing.

       --no-port-listing
              Normally the "ports" status message includes the full netstat-listing received from
              the client. If you prefer to just have the monitored ports shown, this option  will
              turn off the full netstat-listing.

       --config=FILENAME
              Sets   the   filename  for  the  hobbit-clients.cfg  file.  The  default  value  is
              "etc/hobbit-clients.cfg" below the Xymon server directory.

       --dump-config
              Dumps the configuration after parsing it. May be useful to track down problems with
              configuration file errors.

       --test Starts   an   interactive   session  where  you  can  test  the  hobbit-clients.cfg
              configuration.

       --debug
              Enable debugging output.
