bbcombotest - Xymon combination test tool
bbcombotest [--debug] [--quiet]
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
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.
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.
Provide debugging output for use in troubleshooting problems
Dont send any status messages - instead, the result of the
combotests is simply dumped to stdout. Useful for debugging.
