xymond_history - xymond worker module for logging status changes
xymond_channel --channel=stachg xymond_history [options]
xymond_history is a worker module for xymond, and as such it is normally run via
the xymond_channel(8) program. It receives xymond status-change
messages from the "stachg" channel via stdin, and uses these to
update the history logfiles in a manner that is compatible with the standard
Big Brother daemon, bbd.
- The directory for the history files. If not specified, the directory given
by the XYMONHISTDIR environment is used.
- The directory for the historical status-logs. If not specified, the
directory given by the XYMONHISTLOGS environment is used.
- Sets the minimum percentage of free filesystem space on the $XYMONHISTLOGS
directory. If there is less than N% free space, xymond_history will not
save the detailed status-logs. Default: 5
- xymond_history writes the process-ID it is running with to this file. This
is for use in automated startup scripts. The default file is
- Enable debugging output.
- This environment variable controls if the $XYMONHISTDIR/allevents logfile
is updated. This file is used by the event-log display on the nongreen
html page and the eventlog-webpage, among other things. You can disable it
by setting XYMONALLHISTLOGS=FALSE, but this is not recommended.
- This environment variable controls if the $XYMONHISTDIR/HOSTNAME logfile
is updated. This file holds a list of all status changes seen for a single
host, but is not used by any of the standard Xymon tools. If you do not
want to save this, you can disable it by setting XYMONHOSTHISTLOG=FALSE.
- This environment variable controls if the historical status-logs are saved
whenever a status change occurs. These logfiles are stored in the
$XYMONHISTLOGS directory, and are used for the detailed log-display of a
status from the Xymon "History" page. If you do not want to save
these, you can disable it by setting SAVESTATUSLOG=FALSE. If you want to
save all except some specific logs, use
SAVESTATUSLOG=TRUE,!TEST1[,!TEST2...] If you want to save none except some
specific logs, use SAVESTATUSLOG=FALSE,TEST1[,TEST2...]
NOTE: Status logs will not be saved if there is less than 5% free space on
the filesystem hosting the $XYMONHISTLOGS directory. The threshold can be
tuned via the "--minimum-free" option.
This module does not rely on any configuration files.
