NAME

fai-monitor - fai monitor daemon

SYNOPSIS

fai-monitor

DESCRIPTION

fai-monitor receives messages from all install clients on port 4711 and prints them to stdout.

OPTIONS

-p port

Define port to listen on. Default is port 4711.

-b

Call fai-chboot for the install client if the task install was finished properly. Default is not to call fai-chboot.

-i

Use IP address of connecting host when calling fai-chboot. This can only be used if the host has the same IP while installing as when running.

-l FILE

Logfile. Default is standard out in non-daemon mode and "/var/log/fai-monitor.log" in daemon mode.

-t TIMEOUT

Timeout for bad clients. 0 to disable.

-d

Daemon mode.

-P FILE

PID-file. Default is "/var/run/fai-monitor.pid". Used only if starting in daemon mode.

-T

Print timestamps in the log.

NOTES

Normally, the output will be piped to fai-monitor-gui, a GUI which displays all information.

fai-monitor reads variables from /var/log/fai/variables (key=value pair format) and replies to request from clients if they have the format: VARIABLE <VARNAME>. For e.g. if the clients sends "VARIABLE FAI_VERSION", fai-monitor will reply with OK and the value of this variable (e.g. "OK 4.5.6") if this variable is defined, otherwise it will reply with UNKNOWN and repeats the VARNAME (e.g. "UNKNOWN FAI_VERSION").
