report.cgi(1) CGI front-end to xymongen reporting


report.cgi [--noclean] [xymongen-options]


report.cgi is invoked as a CGI script via the CGI wrapper. It triggers the generation of a Xymon availability report for the timeperiod specified by the CGI parameters.

report.cgi is passed a QUERY_STRING environment variable with the following parameters:

   start-mon (Start month of the report)
   start-day (Start day-of-month of the report)
   start-yr  (Start year of the report)
   end-mon   (End month of the report)
   end-day   (End day-of-month of the report)
   end-yr    (End year of the report)
   style     (Report style)
  The following non-standard parameters are handled by the xymongen version of report.cgi:

   suburl    (Page in report to go to, if not the top page)

The "month" parameters must be specified as the three-letter english month name abbreviation: Jan, Feb, Mar ...

Start- and end-days are in the range 1..31; the start- and end-year must be specified including century (e.g. "2003").

End-times beyond the current time are silently replaced with the current time.

The generated report will include data for the start- and end-days, i.e. the report will begin at 00:00:00 of the start-day, and end at 23:59:59 of the end-day.

The "style" parameter is passed directly to xymongen(1) and should be "crit", "non-crit" or "all". Other values result in undefined behaviour.

All of the processing involved in generating the report is done by invoking xymongen(1) with the proper "--reportopts" option.


Do not clean the XYMONREPDIR directory of old reports. Makes the report-tool go a bit faster - instead, you can clean up the XYMONREPDIR directory e.g. via a cron-job.

Load the environment from FILENAME before executing the CGI.

All other options passed to report.cgi are passed on to the xymongen(1) program building the report files.
