hobbitd_hostdata - hobbitd worker module for storing historical client data
hobbitd_channel --channel=clichg hobbitd_hostdata
hobbitd_hostdata is a worker module for hobbitd, and as such it is normally
run via the
program. Whenever a status column 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
is launched with the "--store-clientlogs" option enabled.
All of the host data are stored in the $CLIENTLOGS directory,
by default this is the $BBVAR/hostdata/ directory.
