       appfeed.cgi - Xymon CGI feeder for Smartphone apps

       appfeed.cgi [options]

       appfeed.cgi is invoked as a CGI script via the CGI wrapper.

       appfeed.cgi  is	optionally  passed a QUERY_STRING environment variable
       with the	"filter=FILTER"	parameter. FILTER is a filter for the "xymond-
       board" command sent to xymond(8)	daemon.	These filters are described in
       detail in the xymon(1) manual. Typically, the filter will specify hosts
       found  on  a  specific (sub)page	to be returned,	e.g. "filter=page=web-
       servers"	will cause appfeed.cgi to only return hosts that  are  present
       on the "webservers" page	in Xymon.

       If no filter is specified, appfeed.cgi returns data for all red,	yellow
       or purple statuses (equivalent to the data present  on  the  "All  non-
       green"  page),  or  if  invoked with the	"--critical" option it returns
       data from the "Critical systems"	page.

       The output is an	XML document with the current status of	 the  selected

	      Loads the	environment from FILENAME before executing the CGI.

	      FILENAME	specifies  the	"Critical  Systems" configuration file
	      (default:	critical.cfg).	appfeed.cgi will only return the  sta-
	      tuses currently on the "Critical Systems"	view.

	      In  addition  to the filtering done by the "filter" parameter or
	      the "--critical" option, this option limits the output to	 hosts
	      that  the	user has access	to as defined in the Apache-compatible
	      group-definitions	in FILENAME. See xymon-webaccess(5)  for  more
	      details of this.	 Note: Use of this option requires that	access
	      to the appfeed.cgi tool is password-protected by whatever	 means
	      your  webserver  software	provides, and that the login userid is
	      available	via the	 REMOTE_USER  environment  variable  (this  is
	      standard	CGI  behaviour,	so all webservers should provide it if
	      you use the webserver's built-in authentication mechanisms).
