       hobbit-ackinfo.cgi - Xymon CGI script to acknowledge alerts




       hobbit-ackinfo.cgi is invoked as a CGI script via the
       CGI wrapper.

       hobbit-ackinfo.cgi is  used  to  acknowledge  an  alert  on  the  Xymon
       "Critical Systems" view, generated by the hobbit-nkview.cgi(1) utility.
       This allows the staff viewing the Critical Systems view to  acknowledge
       alerts  with  a  "Level  1"  alert, thereby removing the alert from the
       Critical Systems view.

       Note that the Level 1 alert generated by the hobbit-ackinfo.cgi utility
       does NOT stop alerts from being sent.

       In  a future version of Xymon (after Xymon 4.2), this utility will also
       be used for acknowledging alerts at other levels.


              Sets the acknowledgment level. This is typically used to force a
              specific level of the acknowledgment, e.g. a level 1 acknowledge
              when called from the Critical Systems view.

              Sets the validity of the  acknowledgment.  By  default  this  is
              taken from the CGI parameters supplied by the user.

              Logs  STRING  as  the  sender of the acknowledgment. By default,
              this is taken from the loginname  of  the  webuser  sending  the

              CGI script.
