       svcstatus.cgi - CGI program to view Xymon status	logs

       svcstatus.cgi [--historical] [--history={top|bottom}]

       svcstatus.cgi  is  a  CGI program to present a Xymon status log in HTML
       form (ie, as a web page). It can	be used	both for the logs showing  the
       current	status,	and for	historical logs	from the "histlogs" directory.
       It is normally invoked as a CGI program,	and therefore receives most of
       the input parameters via	the CGI	QUERY_STRING environment variable.

       Unless  the "--historical" option is present, the current status	log is
       used. This assumes a QUERY_STRING environment variable of the form
       where "hostname"	is the name of the host	with commas instead  of	 dots,
       and  "servicename"  is  the name	of the service (the column name	in Xy-
       mon).  Such links are automatically generated by	the  xymongen(1)  tool
       when the	environment contains "XYMONLOGSTATUS=dynamic".

       With  the  "--historical" option	present, a historical logfile is used.
       This assumes a QUERY_STRING environment variable	of the form
       where "hostname"	is the name of the host	with commas instead  of	 dots,
       "servicename"  is  the name of the service, and "timestamp" is the time
       of the log. This	is automatically generated by the history.cgi(1) tool.

	      Use a historical logfile instead of the current logfile.

	      When showing the current logfile,	provide	a "HISTORY" button  at
	      the top or the bottom of the webpage, or not at all. The default
	      is to put	the HISTORY button at the bottom of the	page.

	      Load the environment from	FILENAME before	executing the CGI.

	      Where to look for	the HTML  header-  and	footer-templates  used
	      when generating the webpages. Default: $XYMONHOME/web/

	      Do not include the HTML tags to identify the hostname/service on
	      the generated web	page. Useful is	this already  happens  in  the
	      hostsvc_header template file, for	instance.

	      This  causes  svcstatus.cgi  to generate links to	service	graphs
	      that are split up	into multiple images, with at  most  5	graphs
	      per  image.  This	option only works in Xymon mode. If not	speci-
	      fied, only the "disk" status is split up this way.

	      By default, the info-column page includes	a form allowing	 users
	      to  disable  and re-enable tests.	If your	setup uses the default
	      separation of administration tools into  a  separate,  password-
	      protected	 area,	then  use of the disable- and enable-functions
	      requires access to the administration tools. If you prefer to do
	      this  only  via  the  dedicated administration page, this	option
	      will remove the disable-function from the	info page.

	      The disable-function on the info-column  page  by	 default  uses
	      JavaScript  to  validate the form	before submitting the input to
	      the Xymon	server.	However, some browsers cannot handle the Java-
	      script  code  correctly  so  the form does not work. This	option
	      disables the use of  Javascript  for  form-validation,  allowing
	      these browsers to	use the	disable-function.

	      Use  FILENAME as the configuration file for the Critical Systems
	      information.  The	 default  is  to  load	 this	from   $XYMON-

	      HTML template header

	      HTML template footer

	      A	comma-separated	list of	services that does not have meaningful
	      history, e.g. the	"info" and "trends" columns.  Services	listed
	      here do not get a	"History" button.

	      A	comma-separated	list of	the tests that have an RRD graph.
