NAME
bbcombotest - Xymon combination test tool SYNOPSIS
bbcombotest --help bbcombotest --version bbcombotest [--debug] [--quiet] DESCRIPTION
bbcombotest 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. SEE ALSO

NAME
hobbitlaunch - Master program to launch other Xymon programs SYNOPSIS
hobbitlaunch [options] DESCRIPTION
hobbitlaunch(8) is the main program that controls the execution and scheduling of all of the components in the Xymon system. hobbitlaunch allows the administrator to add, remove or change the set of Xymon applications and extensions without restarting Xymon - hob- bitlaunch will automatically notice any changes in the set of tasks, and change the scheduling of activities accordingly. hobbitlaunch also allows the administrator to setup specific logfiles for each component of the Xymon system, instead of getting output from all components logged to a single file. OPTIONS
--env=FILENAME Loads the environment from FILENAME before starting other tools. The environment defined by FILENAME is the default, it can be overridden by the ENVFILE option in hobbitlaunch.cfg(5) --config=FILENAME This option defines the file that hobbitlaunch scans for tasks it must launch. A description of this file is in hobbitlaunch.cfg(5) The default tasklist is /etc/hobbitlaunch.cfg --log=FILENAME Defines the logfile where hobbitlaunch logs information about failures to launch tasks and other data about the operation of hobbit- launch. Logs from individual tasks are defined in the hobbitlaunch.cfg file. By default this is logged to stdout. --pidfile=FILENAME Filename which hobbitlaunch saves its own process-ID to. Commonly used by automated start/stop scripts. --verbose Logs the launch of all tasks to the logfile. Note that the logfile may become quite large if you enable this. --dump Just dump the contents of the hobbitlaunch.cfg file after parsing it. Used for debugging. --debug Enable debugging output while running. --no-daemon hobbitlaunch normally detaches from the controlling tty and runs as a background task. This option keeps it running in the fore- ground. STARTING TASKS
hobbitlaunch will read the configuration file and start all of the tasks listed there. If a task completes abnormally (i.e. terminated by a signal or with a non-zero exit status), then hobbitlaunch will attempt to restart it 5 times. If it still will not run, then the task is disabled for 10 minutes. This will be logged to the hobbitlaunch logfile. If the configuration file changes, hobbitlaunch will re-read it and notice any changes. If a running task was removed from the configura- tion, then the task is stopped. If a new task was added, it will be started. If the command used for a task changed, or it was given a new environment definition file, or the logfile was changed, then the task is stopped and restarted with the new definition. SEE ALSO
