NAME

       hobbitd_filestore - hobbitd worker module for storing Xymon data

SYNOPSIS

       hobbitd_channel --channel=status hobbitd_filestore --status [options]
       hobbitd_channel --channel=data   hobbitd_filestore --data [options]
       hobbitd_channel --channel=notes  hobbitd_filestore --notes [options]
       hobbitd_channel --channel=enadis hobbitd_filestore --enadis [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.
