NAMEbbcombotest - Xymon combination test tool
SYNOPSISbbcombotest --help bbcombotest --version bbcombotest [--debug] [--quiet]
DESCRIPTIONbbcombotest is a Xymon extension script that runs on the BBDISPLAY 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 tests. 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.
OPTIONS--quiet Normally, the test status sent by bbcombotest 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. --debug Provide debugging output for use in troubleshooting problems with bbcombotest. --no-update Dont send any status messages - instead, the result of the combotests is simply dumped to stdout. Useful for debugging.
FILES$BBHOME/etc/bbcombotest.cfg Configuration file for bbcombotest, where the combined tests are defined $BBHOME/etc/hobbitlaunch.cfg Configuration file controlling when bbcombotest is run.
