NAME
       ackinfo.cgi - Xymon CGI script to acknowledge alerts

SYNOPSIS
       ackinfo.cgi

DESCRIPTION
       ackinfo.cgi is invoked as a CGI script via the ackinfo.sh CGI wrapper.

       ackinfo.cgi is used to acknowledge an alert on the Xymon	"Critical Sys-
       tems" view, generated by	the criticalview.cgi(1)	utility.  This	allows
       the  staff viewing the Critical Systems view to acknowledge alerts with
       a "Level	1" alert, thereby removing the alert from the Critical Systems
       view.

       Note  that  the Level 1 alert generated by the ackinfo.cgi utility does
       NOT stop	alerts from being sent.

       In a future version of Xymon (after Xymon 4.2), this utility will  also
       be used for acknowledging alerts	at other levels.

OPTIONS
       --level=NUMBER
	      Sets the acknowledgment level. This is typically used to force a
	      specific level of	the acknowledgment, e.g. a level 1 acknowledge
	      when called from the Critical Systems view.

       --validity=TIME
	      Sets  the	 validity  of  the  acknowledgment. By default this is
	      taken from the CGI parameters supplied by	the user.

       --sender=STRING
	      Logs STRING as the sender	of  the	 acknowledgment.  By  default,
	      this  is taken from the loginname	of the webuser sending the ac-
	      knowledgment.

       --env=FILENAME
	      Loads the	environment defined in FILENAME	before	executing  the
	      CGI script.

       --area=NAME
	      Load  environment	 variables  for	 a specific area. NB: if used,
	      this option must appear before any --env=FILENAME	option.

       --debug
	      Enables debugging	output.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       XYMONHOME
	      Used to locate the template files	for the	generated web pages.

       QUERY_STRING
	      Contains the parameters for the CGI script.
