       bb-rep.cgi - CGI front-end to bbgen reporting


       bb-rep.cgi [--noclean] [bbgen-options]


       bb-rep.cgi  is  invoked  as a CGI script via the CGI wrapper.
       It triggers the generation of  a  Xymon  availability  report  for  the
       timeperiod specified by the CGI paramaters.

       bb-rep.cgi  is  passed  a  QUERY_STRING  environment  variable with the
       following parameters:

          start-mon (Start month of the report)
          start-day (Start day-of-month of the report)
          start-yr  (Start year of the report)
          end-mon   (End month of the report)
          end-day   (End day-of-month of the report)
          end-yr    (End year of the report)
          style     (Report style)

       The following non-standard parameters are handled by the bbgen  version
       of bb-rep.cgi:

          suburl    (Page in report to go to, if not the top page)

       The  "month"  parameters  must be specified as the three-letter english
       month name abbreviation: Jan, Feb, Mar ...

       Start- and end-days are in the range 1..31;  the  start-  and  end-year
       must be specified including century (e.g. "2003").

       End-times  beyond  the  current  time  are  silently  replaced with the
       current time.

       The generated report will include data for  the  start-  and  end-days,
       i.e.  the  report  will  begin at 00:00:00 of the start-day, and end at
       23:59:59 of the end-day.

       The "style" parameter is passed directly  to  bbgen(1)  and  should  be
       "crit",   "non-crit"   or  "all".  Other  values  result  in  undefined

       All of the processing involved in generating  the  report  is  done  by
       invoking bbgen(1) with the proper "--reportopts" option.


              Do  not  clean  the  BBREP  directory  of old reports. Makes the
              report-tool go a bit faster - instead,  you  can  clean  up  the
              BBREP directory e.g. via a cron-job.

              Load the environment from FILENAME before executing the CGI.

              All  other  options  passed  to  bb-rep.cgi are passed on to the
              bbgen(1) program building the report files.

              bbgen options passed by default to the bb-rep.cgi. This  happens
              in the wrapper.

       BBHOME Home directory of the Xymon server installation

       BBREP  Directory  where  generated  reports  are stored. This directory
              must be  writable  by  the  userid  executing  the  CGI  script,
              typically "www", "apache" or "nobody". Default: $BBHOME/www/rep/

              The URL prefix to use when accessing the reports via a  browser.
              Default: $BBWEB/rep
