new-port-hosts - add RRDs for services

Usage:

new-port-hosts version 1.12 from remstats 1.0.13a
usage: new-port-hosts [options] group [hostfile ...]
where options are:
    -d      enable debugging output
    -f fff  use 'fff' for config-dir [/home/groups/r/re/remstats/etc/config]
    -h      show this help

Description:

You supply a file or files of hostnames, one per line, or let it read from stdin.

You can use this to add RRDs to a host describing the various services running on a server, or at least the ones that the port-collector knows how to talk to. It's actually a very limited port-scanner, and will attempt to connect to each of the services. For each one that answers, new-port-hosts will write an entry for the corresponding rrd.

If the host has no file, new-port-hosts will add one with appropriate header info and a ping rrd. Otherwise, it will just add the port-based rrd's to the end of the host file.
