bbretest-net.sh - Xymon network re-test tool
bbretest-net.sh is an extension script for Xymon that runs on the
network test server. It picks up the failing network tests executed by
the bbtest-net(1) program, and repeats these tests with a faster test
cycle than the normal bbtest-net schedule. This means that when the
server recovers and the network service becomes available again, this
is detected quicker resulting in less reported downtime.
Only tests whose first failure occurred within 30 minutes are included
in the tests that are run by bbretest-net.sh. The 30 minute limit is
there to avoid hosts that are down for longer periods of time to bog
down bbretest-net.sh. You can change this limit with the
"--frequenttestlimit=SECONDS" when you run bbtest-net.
This script runs by default from your hobbitlaunch.cfg(5) file.
Temporary status file managed by bbtest-net with status of tests
that have currently failed.
Temporary file managed by bbtest-net with the hostnames that
bbretest-net.sh should test.
