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 instead.
- 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 webpages.
- 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: $XYMONHTMLSTATUSDIR
- 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.
