Xymon client environment variables
Xymon programs use multiple environment variables beside the normal set of variables. For the Xymon client, the environment definitions are stored in the ~xymon/client/etc/xymonclient.cfg file. Each line in this file is of the form NAME=VALUE and defines one environment variable NAME with the value VALUE.
The IP-address used to contact the Xymon server. Default: Chosen when the Xymon client was compiled.
List of IP-addresses of Xymon servers. Data will be sent to all of the servers listed here. This setting is only used if XYMSRV=0.0.0.0.
The port number for used to contact the Xymon server. Default: 1984.
The Xymon client top-level directory. Default: The $XYMONCLIENTHOME setting inherited from the "runclient.sh" script which starts the Xymon client.
The directory for the Xymon clients' own log files. Default: $XYMONHOME/logs
Directory used for temporary files. Default: $XYMONHOME/tmp/
Full path to the xymon(1) client program. Default: $XYMONHOME/bin/xymon.
Many extension scripts expect a series of environment variables to point at various system utilities. These are included in the file when the client is built.
Some environment variables are inherited from the "runclient.sh" script which launches the Xymon client:
The hostname of the local system. Default: Taken from "uname -n".
The hostname of the local system, with dots replaced by commas. For compatibility with Big Brother extension scripts.
The operating system of the local system, in lowercase. Default: taken from "uname -s".
The top-level directory for the Xymon client. Default: The location of the "runclient.sh" script.
