[Xymon] BBWin Externals

Hi Scott,


The way I would do it is to comment out the cpu.dll line in BBWin.cfg so
that you are not running the standard CPU test, then have your script
write the file into %BBWIN%/tmp called 'cpu'


That should make your external script output show up in the cpu column
as if it was the normal BBWin test. If you are already writing it into
/tmp as cpu but still have the inbuilt test switched on, that could be
your problem.

Subject: [Xymon] BBWin Externals




Does anyone know if it's possible to build an externals test and have it
sent in with the regular collected data with BBWin?

I have a machine with a large number of cores and BBWin's CPU section is
unable to handle reporting on it.  I've made an external whose output
exactly matches the CPU section of the data collected and sent to Xymon
by BBWin but I'm struggling on how to get the data sent to Xymon.  When
I write out the data to a file in %BBWIN%/tmp it is sent to the Xymon
server but it seems like nothing is happening with it.  Likely because
the server is expecting a full external test and I'm not sending like


Any ideas?
