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").

SEE ALSO
       This program is part of FAI (Fully Automatic Installation).  See the
       FAI manual for more information on how to use fai-monitor.  The FAI
