       hobbitd_channel --channel=data   hobbitd_filestore --data [options]

DESCRIPTION

       hobbitd_filestore  is  a  worker  module for hobbitd, and as such it is
       normally run via the hobbitd_channel(8) program.  It  receives  hobbitd
       messages  from  a  hobbitd  channel  via stdin, and stores these in the
       filesystem in a manner that is compatible with the Big Brother  daemon,
       bbd.

       This  program  can  be  started  multiple  times,  if you want to store
       messages for more than one channel.

OPTIONS

       --status
              Incoming messages are "status" messages, they will be stored  in
              the  $BBLOGS/  directory.  If  you are using xymon(7) throughout
              your Xymon server, you will not need to run this module to  save
              status messages, unless you have a third-party add-on that reads
              the status-logs directly.  This module  is  NOT  needed  to  get
              trend graphs, you should run the hobbitd_rrd(8) module instead.

       --data Incoming  messages  are  "data" messages, they will be stored in
              the $BBDATA directory. This module is  not  needed,  unless  you
              have  a  third-party  module that processes the data-files. This
              module is NOT needed to get trend graphs,  you  should  run  the
              hobbitd_rrd(8) module instead.

       --notes
              Incoming  messages  are "notes" messages, they will be stored in
              the $BBNOTES directory. This modules is only needed if you  want
              to  allow people to remotely update the notes-files available on
              the Xymon webpages.

       --enadis
              Incoming messages are enable/disable messages, they will  update
              files  in  the $BBDISABLED directory. This is only needed if you
              have third-party add-ons that use these files.

       --dir=DIRECTORY
              Overrides the default output directory.

       --html Used together with "--status". Tells hobbitd_filestore  to  also
              save  an  HTML  version  of  the  status-log. Should not be used
              unless you must run with "BBLOGSTATUS=static".

       --htmldir=DIRECTORY
              The directory where HTML-versions of the status logs are stored.
              Default: $BBHTML

       --htmlext=.EXT
              Set the filename extension for generated HTML files. By default,
              HTML files are saved with a ".html" extension.

       --multigraphs=TEST1[,TEST2]
              This causes hobbitd_filestore to generate HTML status pages with
              links  to service graphs that are split up into multiple images,
              with at most 5 graphs per image.  If  not  specified,  only  the
              "disk" status is split up this way.

       --only=test[,test,test]
              Save  status messages only for the listed set of tests. This can
              be useful if you have an external script  that  needs  to  parse
              some  of the status logs, but you do not want to save all status
              logs.

       --debug
              Enable debugging output.
