xymond_hostdata - xymond worker module for storing historical client data
xymond_channel --channel=clichg xymond_hostdata
xymond_hostdata is a worker module for xymond, and as such it is normally run
via the xymond_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 xymond(8) is launched with
the "--store-clientlogs" option enabled.
- Sets the minimum percentage of free filesystem space on the $CLIENTLOGS
directory. If there is less than N% free space, xymond_hostdata will not
save the data. Default: 5
- Enable debugging output.
All of the host data are stored in the $CLIENTLOGS directory, by default this is
the $XYMONVAR/hostdata/ directory.
