[hobbit] Config Report

I haven't looked at this one yet (I'm in the process of swapping out the
bulk of our AIX boxen, due to end of lease) -- but if you want *real*
overkill on system configs, look at cfg2html. I run this once a week, on
Sundays, and stuff the resulting html on my hobbit server in www/notes
so I can access it by clicking the system name link.

Available for HP-UX, AIX, and Solaris (and maybe others -- I just do
AIX) at //http:groups.yahoo.com/group/cfg2html.

It's created dynamically by pulling a bunch of information from the 
bb-hosts file and the running Hobbit daemon.

Looking at it now, it seems I'll have to rework it slightly to make
it look nicer with all the info from the new client.

I try to do cool stuff :-)

Seriously, this report is something that was created for a specific
request I had at work. Some of the paper-pushers there insisted on
having a hard-copy print-out of what is being monitored by Hobbit as
part of the operational documentation (never mind that monitoring is
fairly dynamic and frequently changes after that documentation has
been produced ...) So this report was done so that I don't have to
collect that information by hand.

I've noted your suggestion that it would be nice to leave out parts
of the report - I think that is fairly easy to implement, so I'll have
a look at that.
