ggz-cmd HOST LOGIN PASSWORD COMMAND [OPTIONS...]
Connects to a GGZ server to execute some command or batch of commands.
The ggz-cmd tool is a command line client to servers of the GGZ Gaming Zone which is able to broadcast messages to all rooms of such a server. It expects a command and the login data to be given, and depending on the command some optional parameters might be needed as well.
It can also be used to check the GGZ server uptime, either by emitting error messages directly, or through Nagios.
- announce MESSAGE
- Broadcasts a message from the lobby to all other rooms. This requires administrative privileges for the GGZ account which is used for the login.
- Reports whether the specified server is currently up and running or not. The exit code (shell variable $?) is 0 in the case of success, or greater than 0 otherwise.
- This is similar to checkonline, but failure exit codes match those of the Nagios uptime control service. Also, the GGZ account to use must be a guest account. This command is only of interest if Nagios is actually used and the GGZ server should be supervised as part of the network.
- batch BATCHFILE
- This is a pseudo command which can be used to execute multiple commands one after the other. Each line in BATCHFILE corresponds to one invocation of ggz-cmd, except that only the options are contained, not the command ggz-cmd itself.
