hobbit-statusreport.cgi - CGI program to report a status for a group of
hobbit-statusreport.cgi --column=COLUMNNAME [options]
hobbit-statusreport.cgi is a CGI tool to generate a simple HTML report
showing the current status of a single column for a group of Xymon
E.g. You can use this report to get an overview of all of the SSL
certificates that are about to expire.
The generated webpage is a simple HTML table, suitable for copying into
other documents or e-mail.
hobbit-statusreport.cgi runs as a CGI program, invoked by your
webserver. It is normally run via a wrapper shell-script in the CGI
directory for Xymon.
The Xymon installation includes two web report scripts using this CGI
tool: The hobbit-certreport.sh script generates a list of SSL server
certificates that are yellow or red (i.e. they will expire soon); and
the hobbit-nongreen.sh script generates a report of all statuses that
are currently non-green. These can be accessed from a web browser
through a URL referencing the script in the Xymon CGI directory (e.g.
Report the status of the COLUMNNAME column.
--all Report the status for all hosts known to Xymon. By default, this
tool reports only on the hosts found on the current page from
where the CGI was invoked (by looking at the "pagepath" cookie).
Only report on statuses that match the CRITERIA setting. See the
bb(1) man-page - in the "hobbitdboard" command description - for
details about specifying filters.
Defines the webpage heading - i.e. the "title" tag in the
generated HTML code.
Include the column name in the display.
Show the status color on the generated webpage. The default is
to not show the status color.
Do not include text showing the current color of each status in
the report. This is the default.
Show only a summary of the important lines in the status
message. By default, the entire status message appears in the
generated HTML code. This option causes the first non-blank line
of the status message to be shown, and also any lines beginning
with "&COLOR" which is used by many status messages to point out
lines of interest (non-green lines only, though).
Show the entire message on the webpage. This is the default.
--link Include HTML links to the host "info" page, and the status page.
Only generate the HTML table, not a full webpage. This can be
used to embed the status report into an external webpage.
Load the environment from FILENAME before executing the CGI.
Load environment variables for a specific area. NB: if used,
this option must appear before any --env=FILENAME option.
