xymond_sample(8) example of a xymond worker module


xymond_channel --channel=status xymond_sample [options]


xymond_sample is a worker module for xymond, and as such it is normally run via the xymond_channel(8) program. It receives messages from xymond via stdin, and simply displays these on stdout. It can be used with all types of xymond channels.

xymond_sample is not designed to actually run, except as a demonstration. The purpose of this tool is to show how xymond worker modules can be implemented to handle different tasks that need to hook into the xymond processing.
