       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  script generates a list of SSL server
       certificates that are yellow or red (i.e. they will expire  soon);  and
       the  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.
