       combostatus - Xymon combination test tool


       combostatus --help
       combostatus --version
       combostatus [--debug] [--quiet]


       combostatus  is  a  Xymon extension script that runs on the Xymon server.  It combines the
       results of one or more of the normal Xymon test results into a combined test result, using
       standard arithmetic og logical operators.

       The  resulting  tests  are sent to the Xymon display server as any normal test - so all of
       the standard Xymon functions (history, statistics etc.) are  available  for  the  combined

       The  tool was born from the need to monitor systems with built-in redundancy and automatic
       failover - e.g. load-balanced web servers.  But other uses are possible.


              Specify which colors trigger an error status. By default only a "red" status counts
              as  an error color - all other colors, including yellow, will count as "green" when
              evaluating the combined status. COLOR  is  "red",  "yellow",  "blue",  "purple"  or

              Normally,  the  test  status  sent  by  combostatus  includes information about the
              underlying test results used to determine the current value of the  combined  test.
              "--quiet" eliminates this information from the test status page.

              Provide debugging output for use in troubleshooting problems with combostatus.

              Don't  send  any  status messages - instead, the result of the combotests is simply
              dumped to stdout. Useful for debugging.
