cdist-type__xymon_server - Man Page

Install a Xymon server

Description

This cdist type installs a Xymon (https://www.xymon.com/) server and (optional) required helper packages.

This includes the Xymon client as a dependency, so NO NEED to install __xymon_client separately.

To access the webinterface a webserver is required.  The cdist-type __xymon_apache can be used to install and configure the apache webserver for the use with Xymon.

Further and day-to-day configuration of Xymon can either be done manually in /etc/xymon/ or the directory can be deployed and managed by __xymon_config.

Required Parameters

None.

Optional Parameters

state

'present', 'absent', defaults to 'present'. If '--install_helpers' is specified for 'absent' the helper packages will be un-installed.

Boolean Parameters

install_helpers

Install helper packages used by Xymon (fping, heirloom-mailx, traceroute, ntpdate).

Examples

# minmal
__xymon_server

# the same
__xymon_server --state present

# also install helper packages:
__xymon_server --install_helpers

# examples to give a more complete picture: __xymon_server installed on
# `xymon.example.com` w/ IP 192.168.1.1:
#
# install webserver and grant 2 private subnets access to the webinterface:
__xymon_apache --ipacl "192.168.0.0/16 10.0.0.0/8"
# deploy server-configuration with __xymon_config:
__xymon_config --confdir=xymon.example.com

# install xymon-client on other machines (not needed on the server):
__xymon_client --servers "192.168.1.1"
