NAME

       hobbitd_history - hobbitd worker module for logging status changes

SYNOPSIS

       hobbitd_channel --channel=stachg hobbitd_history [options]

DESCRIPTION

       hobbitd_history  is  a  worker  module for hobbitd, and as such it is normally run via the
       hobbitd_channel(8) program. It receives hobbitd status-change messages from  the  "stachg"
       channel  via  stdin,  and  uses  these  to update the history logfiles in a manner that is
       compatible with the standard Big Brother daemon, bbd.

OPTIONS

       --histdir=DIRECTORY
              The directory for the history files. If not specified, the directory given  by  the
              BBHIST environment is used.

       --histlogdir=DIRECTORY
              The directory for the historical status-logs. If not specified, the directory given
              by the BBHISTLOGS environment is used.

       --debug
              Enable debugging output.

ENVIRONMENT

       BBALLHISTLOG
              This environment variable controls if the  $BBHIST/allevents  logfile  is  updated.
              This  file is used by the event-log display on the BB2 html page. If you do not use
              this, you can disable it by setting BBALLHISTLOGS=FALSE.

       BBHOSTHISTLOG
              This environment variable controls if the $BBHIST/HOSTNAME logfile is updated. This
              file  holds a list of all status changes seen for a single host, but is not used by
              any of the standard Xymon tools. If you do not want to save this, you  can  disable
              it by setting BBHOSTHISTLOG=FALSE.

       SAVESTATUSLOG
              This environment variable controls if the historical status-logs are saved whenever
              a status change occurs. These logfiles are stored in the $BBHISTLOGS directory, and
              are used for the detailed log-display of a status from the Xymon "History" page. If
              you do not want to save these, you can disable it by setting SAVESTATUSLOG=FALSE.

FILES

       This module does not rely on any configuration files.
