10.3. Making the SysOrb overview available to other programs

As a way to import the information from the SysOrb overview page into other programs, the Web interface has a special page, which outputs an overview of all nodes and domains in plain text.

In order to view this page, type in the following URL in our browser:

login &passwd=your

Where your login, your password, domain are replaced with the values normaly used to login (for the default user these are "admin", "admtest" and "."). The servername and port should be the dns-name of the SysOrb Server and the port it is running on. If the Webinterface runs on the same server as the SysOrb Server these values are "localhost" and "3241"

The output from this page has the following layout:

                Interface throughput for total received bytes eth0      Good
                Interface throughput for total transmitted bytes eth0   Good

The format is simple. After the introductionary line at the top the first line encountered is the name of the domain, the user is logged in to. After the name of the domain a there is a TAB character, and then the status for Network, Checkin and Agents, again seperated by TAB characters.

The next line is an identification line, which can be one of two. If there are subdomains in the users root-domain, the line is *** Domains ***, otherwise it is *** Nodes *** just as in the example above.

The lines following the identification line, will all be indented by a TAB character until another identification line is outputtet for the current domain, or the information for another domain is outputted.

After the *** Domains *** (if present) line all the subdomains to the current domain will be listed in the same way as the root domain is.

After the *** Nodes *** line all the nodes in the current domain will be listed, with their name first on the line, and the status after it, just like the status for the domain.

After the node line comes another identification line which can be either *** NetChecks ***, *** AgentChecks *** or *** snmpChecks ***. Afther the identification line, all the checks of the given type is listed, again idendented with another TAB character. After the name of the check, the status for it is listed.
