       smokeping_cgi - SmokePing webfrontend


       This script acts as a 'website' for your SmokePing monitoring
       operation. It presents the targets you are looking at in a tree
       structure and draws graphs as they are required by people looking at
       the pages.


       To get smokeping_cgi going, you need a webserver which allows you to
       run CGI or better FastCGI scripts. The system must be setup so that the
       cgi process is allowed to write to the image caching area as defined in
       the config file.

       This script runs fine as a normal CGI, BUT it will appear to be very
       slow, because it does a lot of things when starting up. So if the
       script has to be started a fresh on every click, this is both slow and
       a tough thing for your webserver. I therefore strongly recommend using

       Please refer to the installation document for detailed setup


       There is a sample htdocs directory in your smokeping installation root.
       Copy its content to the place where your webserver expects its files.
       The fcgi script shows the preferred method for runnig smokeping.  You
       can also run smokeping as a cgi.  But make sure to still use the
       wrapper as exposing ARGV to the webserver represents a security
       vulnerability you may rather not want to deal with.

       Adjust the paths in the script and you should be ready to go.
