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
