xymonclient.cfg - Xymon client environment variables

 

DESCRIPTION

Xymon programs use multiple environment variables beside the normal set of variables. For the Xymon client, the environment definitions are stored in the ~xymon/client/etc/xymonclient.cfg file. Each line in this file is of the form NAME=VALUE and defines one environment variable NAME with the value VALUE.
