bbcombotest - Xymon combination test tool


bbcombotest --help
bbcombotest --version
bbcombotest [--debug] [--quiet]


bbcombotest is a Xymon extension script that runs on the BBDISPLAY server. It combines the results of one or more of the normal Xymon test results into a combined test result, using standard arithmetic og logical operators.

The resulting tests are sent to the Xymon display server as any normal test - so all of the standard Xymon functions (history, statistics etc.) are available for the combined tests.

The tool was born from the need to monitor systems with built-in redundancy and automatic failover - e.g. load-balanced web servers. But other uses are possible.


Normally, the test status sent by bbcombotest includes information about the underlying test results used to determine the current value of the combined test. "--quiet" eliminates this information from the test status page.
Provide debugging output for use in troubleshooting problems with bbcombotest.
Dont send any status messages - instead, the result of the combotests is simply dumped to stdout. Useful for debugging.
