orcahobbit --orca=PREFIX [options] NOTICE
This utility is included in the client distribution for Xymon 4.2. However, the backend module to parse the data it sends it NOT included in Xymon 4.2. It is possible to use the generic Xymon NCV data handler in hobbitd_rrd(8) to process ORCA data, if you have an urgent need to do so. DESCRIPTION
orcahobbit is an add-on tool for the Xymon client. It is used to grab data collected by the ORCA data collection tool (, and send it to the Xymon server in NCV format. orcahobbit should run from the client hobbitlaunch(8) utility, i.e. there must be an entry in the clientlaunch.cfg(5) file for orcahobbit.

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 col- umn 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. SEE ALSO
