acknowledge.cgi - Xymon CGI script to acknowledge alerts




acknowledge.cgi is invoked as a CGI script via the acknowledge.sh CGI wrapper.

acknowledge.cgi is passed a QUERY_STRING environment variable with the ACTION, NUMBER,
DELAY and MESSAGE parameters.


ACTION is the action to perform. The only supported action is "Ack" to acknowledge an

NUMBER is the number identifying the host/service to be acknowledged. It is included in
all alert-messages sent out by Xymon.

DELAY is the time (in minutes) that the acknowledge is valid.

MESSAGE is an optional text which will be shown on the status page while the
acknowledgment is active. You can use it to e.g. tell users not to contact you about the
problem, or inform them when the problem is expected to be resolved.


acknowledge.cgi normally requires the user to enter the acknowledgment code
received in an alert message. If you run it with this option, the user will instead
get a list of the current non-green statuses, and he may send an acknowledge
without knowing the code.

Normally, acknowledge.cgi uses a cookie sent by the browser to initially filter the
list of hosts presented. If this is not desired, you can turn off this behaviour by
calling acknowledge.cgi with the --no-cookies option. This would normally be placed
in the CGI_ACK_OPTS setting in cgioptions.cfg(5)

Loads the environment defined in FILENAME before executing the CGI script.

Enables debugging output.
