xymond_filestore is a worker module for xymond, and as such it is normally run
via the xymond_channel(8)
program. It receives xymond messages from a
xymond channel via stdin, and stores these in the filesystem in a manner that
is compatible with the Big Brother daemon, bbd.
This program can be started multiple times, if you want to store messages for
more than one channel.
- Incoming messages are "status" messages, they will be stored in
the $XYMONRAWSTATUSDIR/ directory. If you are using xymon(7)
throughout your Xymon server, you will not need to run this module to save
status messages, unless you have a third-party add-on that reads the
status-logs directly. This module is NOT needed to get trend graphs, you
should run the xymond_rrd(8) module instead.
- Incoming messages are "data" messages, they will be stored in
the $XYMONDATADIR directory. This module is not needed, unless you have a
third-party module that processes the data-files. This module is NOT
needed to get trend graphs, you should run the xymond_rrd(8) module
- Incoming messages are "notes" messages, they will be stored in
the $XYMONNOTESDIR directory. This modules is only needed if you want to
allow people to remotely update the notes-files available on the Xymon
- Incoming messages are enable/disable messages, they will update files in
the $XYMONDISABLEDDIR directory. This is only needed if you have
third-party add-ons that use these files.
- Overrides the default output directory.
- Used together with "--status". Tells xymond_filestore to also
save an HTML version of the status-log. Should not be used unless you must
run with "XYMONLOGSTATUS=static".
- The directory where HTML-versions of the status logs are stored. Default:
- Set the filename extension for generated HTML files. By default, HTML
files are saved with a ".html" extension.
- This causes xymond_filestore to generate HTML status pages with links to
service graphs that are split up into multiple images, with at most 5
graphs per image. If not specified, only the "disk" status is
split up this way.
- Save status messages only for the listed set of tests. This can be useful
if you have an external script that needs to parse some of the status
logs, but you do not want to save all status logs.
- Enable debugging output.
This module does not rely on any configuration files.
