This is from a conversation on the hobbit list. It provides an example of a server-side module by Henrik.


I'm not familiar with Perl at all, but a couple of hours work produced this, which appears to work fine. I'll include it as a sample of how to hook into the Xymon server-side channels.

To use it, put it in your ~hobbit/server/ext/ directory, and add this to your hobbitlaunch.cfg on your server:

[rootlogin]
	ENVFILE /usr/lib/hobbit/server/etc/hobbitserver.cfg
	NEEDS hobbitd
	CMD hobbitd_channel --channel=client --log=$BBSERVERLOGS/rootlogin.log $BBHOME/ext/rootlogin.pl
#!/usr/bin/perl -w
 
#*----------------------------------------------------------------------------*/
#* Xymon client message processor.                                           */
#*                                                                            */
#* This perl program shows how to create a server-side module using the       */
#* data sent by the Xymon clients. This program is fed data from the         */
#* Xymon "client" channel via the hobbitd_channel program; each client       */
#* message is processed by looking at the [who] section and generates         */
#* a "login" status that goes red when an active "root" login is found.       */
#*                                                                            */
