smokeping_cgi - SmokePing webfrontend
This script acts as a website for your SmokePing monitoring operation. It
presents the targets you are looking at in a tree structure and draws graphs
as they are required by people looking at the pages.
To get smokeping_cgi going, you need a webserver which allows you to run
CGI or better FastCGI scripts. The system must be setup so that the cgi
process is allowed to write to the image caching area as defined in the
This script runs fine as a normal CGI, BUT it will appear to be very slow,
because it does a lot of things when starting up. So if the script has to be
started a fresh on every click, this is both slow and a tough thing for your
webserver. I therefore strongly recommend using FastCGI.
Please refer to the installation document for detailed setup instructions.
There is a sample htdocs directory in your smokeping installation root.
Copy its content to the place where your webserver expects its files.
There are also two sample cgi scripts showing how to launch the
smokeping cgi in your website. The only difference is the file extension.
Adjust the paths in the script and you should be ready to go.
