Full path to the Xymon hosts. Note that this setting is discouraged so this setting should not be used. If set, this string becomes a formatting string for the documentation URL. Used by clients and the tools that perform network tests. Clients and network test tools will try to send status reports to a Xymon server running on each of these addresses. The default is "red,yellow,purple". Note that alerts may further be generated or suppresed based on the configuration in the alerts.
The default is "green,clear,blue". This is the default setting, which may be changed in the alerts. Status messages are the ones that end up as columns on the web display.
The default size should be adequate in most cases, but some extension scripts can generate very large status messages - close to kB. You should only change this if you see messages in the xymond log file about status messages being truncated. You should only change this if you see messages in the xymond log file about client messages being truncated. You should only change this setting if you see messages in the xymond log file about data messages being truncated.
If you want to upload large documents, you may need to change this setting. Status-change messages occur when a status changes color. There is no reason to change this setting. Client-change messages occur when a status changes color to one of the alert-colors, usually red, yellow and purple.
The allevents file is used by the eventlog. This logfile is not used by any Xymon tool. You will normally not need to modify this, unless you have added a custom TCP-based test to the protocols. All TCP tests are automatically added. Note this will override the default, so to add multiple graphs you should include the original one e.
These are used together by the svcstatus. By default all filesystems reported by a client are tracked. In some cases you may want to disable this for certain filesystems, e. This setting is a regular expression that is matched against the filesystem name the Unix mount-point, or the Windows disk-letter - if the filesystem name matches this expression, then it will not be tracked by Xymon.
By default all filesystems are being tracked, setting this changes that default so that only those filesystems that match this pattern will be tracked. With todays network topologies, the router could be a switch or another network device; if you define this environment variable the word "router" will be replaced with whatever you put into the variable.
The "not OK" message can be changed via this variable, e. This may include suid-root wrappers and xymonping options. Note that xymonnet will still expect the output to match the default format.
If you have the mtr 8 tool installed - available from http: The default is to add the text "Xymon" in the upper-left corner of the page, but you can easily replace this with e. If you do, I suggest that you keep it at about pixels high, and pixels wide. You can define the timeformat using the controls in your systems strftime 3 routine, and add the text suitable for your setup. You want to set this large enough so that a late-answered acknowledgement for an alert is still processed properly.
Normally this looks like "Tue Aug 24 This is a formatting string for the system strftime 3 routine, so any controls available for this routine may be used. This sets the default value for the xymongen 1 "--maxrows" option; if the command-line option is also specified, then it overrides this environment variable. Note that unlike Jeff's patch, xymongen implements this for both the "All non-green" page and all other pages xymon.
These status logs will - if there are Xymon client data available for the host - include a link to the raw data sent by the client. The default value is "Xymon Alerts". Note that two scripts, "eventlog. They are handled internally by xymongen, but the script names must be listed in this variable for this function to be enabled. This will typically include such options as "--subpagecolumns", and also "--ignorecolumns" if you wish to exclude certain tests from reports by default.
This should be identical to the options you normally used when building Xymon webpages.
