NAME

       hobbitd_hostdata  - hobbitd worker module for storing historical client
       data

SYNOPSIS

       hobbitd_channel --channel=clichg hobbitd_hostdata

DESCRIPTION

       hobbitd_hostdata is a worker module for hobbitd,  and  as  such  it  is
       normally  run  via  the  hobbitd_channel(8)  program. Whenever a status
       column in Xymon changes to an  alert  state  (usually  red,  yellow  or
       purple),  this  module  receives a copy of the latest Xymon client data
       sent by the host, and stores it on disk. This allows you to review  all
       of the data collected by the Xymon client on the server around the time
       that a problem  occurred.   This  can  make  troubleshooting  incidents
       easier  by  providing  a  snapshot  of the host status shortly before a
       problem became apparent.

       Note: This  module  requires  that  hobbitd(8)  is  launched  with  the
       "--store-clientlogs" option enabled.

FILES

       All  of  the  host  data  are  stored  in the $CLIENTLOGS directory, by
       default this is the $BBVAR/hostdata/ directory.
