hobbitd_hostdata - hobbitd worker module for storing historical client
hobbitd_channel --channel=clichg hobbitd_hostdata
hobbitd_hostdata is a worker module for hobbitd, and as such it is
normally run via the hobbitd_channel(8) program. Whenever a status
column in Xymon changes to an alert state (usually red, yellow or
purple), this module receives a copy of the latest Xymon client data
sent by the host, and stores it on disk. This allows you to review all
of the data collected by the Xymon client on the server around the time
that a problem occurred. This can make troubleshooting incidents
easier by providing a snapshot of the host status shortly before a
problem became apparent.
Note: This module requires that hobbitd(8) is launched with the
"--store-clientlogs" option enabled.
All of the host data are stored in the $CLIENTLOGS directory, by
default this is the $BBVAR/hostdata/ directory.
