       ackinfo.cgi - Xymon CGI script to acknowledge alerts




       ackinfo.cgi is invoked as a CGI script via the CGI wrapper.

       ackinfo.cgi  is  used  to  acknowledge  an  alert  on  the  Xymon "Critical Systems" view,
       generated by the criticalview.cgi(1) utility. This allows the staff viewing  the  Critical
       Systems view to acknowledge alerts with a "Level 1" alert, thereby removing the alert from
       the Critical Systems view.

       Note that the Level 1 alert generated by the ackinfo.cgi utility does NOT stop alerts from
       being sent.

       In  a  future  version  of  Xymon  (after  Xymon  4.2), this utility will also be used for
       acknowledging alerts at other levels.


              Sets the acknowledgment level. This is typically used to force a specific level  of
              the  acknowledgment,  e.g.  a  level  1  acknowledge  when called from the Critical
              Systems view.

              Sets the validity of the acknowledgment. By default this  is  taken  from  the  CGI
              parameters supplied by the user.

              Logs STRING as the sender of the acknowledgment. By default, this is taken from the
              loginname of the webuser sending the acknowledgment.

              Loads the environment defined in FILENAME before executing the CGI script.

              Load environment variables for a specific area.  NB:  if  used,  this  option  must
              appear before any --env=FILENAME option.

              Enables debugging output.


              Used to locate the template files for the generated web pages.

              Contains the parameters for the CGI script.
