combostatus - Xymon combination test tool
combostatus [--debug] [--quiet]
is a Xymon extension script that runs on the Xymon 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.
Specify which colors trigger an error status. By default only a "red"
status counts as an error color - all other colors, including yellow,
will count as "green" when evaluating the combined status. COLOR
is "red", "yellow", "blue", "purple" or "clear".
Normally, the test status sent by combostatus 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.
