Hobbit Server v4.2.0
4.1
Install
4.1.1
Prerequisites
1) Account
Ensure you are logged in as root.
2) Proxy
# export http_proxy=http://proxy.my.server.name 80/
This temporarily adds a proxy to shell, but a reboot wipes it.
Add the above line to the below to make it permanent.
/root/.bash_profile
3) Starting Apache
Hobbit is designed with a web-based front-end. So you must have a Web server
such as Apache running on the server where you install Hobbit. Type the below to
ensure Apache is running whilst Hobbit is installed and configured.
# /etc/init.d/httpd start
4) Hobbit User Account
A core element of Hobbit is a network daemon. To keep your system secure and limit
the amount of damage that can be done if someone finds a security problem in Hobbit
it is strongly recommended that you create a dedicated userid (hobbit) for the Hobbit
programs. This user should not be a member of any other groups on your system.
# adduser hobbit
# passwd hobbit <specified password>
5) Package Installer
Install a package dependency installer; rpmforge-release.
http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/rpmforge-release
For 32bit machines - rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
For 64bit machines - rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el4.rf.x86_64.rpm
Copy one of the above install files to /tmp and type the below:
# rpm –i <file name>
Hobbit Server 4.2 Install on RedHat 5 Enterprise – www.impee.co.uk
18 / 52
6) Packages and Libraries
Hobbit relies on a number of Open-Source libraries (fping, pcre, rrdtool, libpng,
openssl, openldap) and these must be installed before building Hobbit. With the
current Redhat configured install, not all the packages require installing.
Type the below to use yum to install these packages / libraries:
# yum install fping
# yum install rrdtool*
# yum install pcre-devel
# yum install libpng*
# yum install openssl*
# yum install openldap*
# yum install cppunit*
To install gcc compiler to compile Hobbit:
NOTE: This was already installed previously for ClamAV, if so, do not re-install it.
# yum install gcc
# yum install gcc-c++
Package names of the hobbit dependencies

4.1.2.1
Copy the tar.gz to:
# /tmp
Unpack install file:
# gzip -d <hobbit-4.2.0.tar.gz | tar xv
Navigate to the directory:
# cd /tmp/hobbit-4.2.0
./configure
Run the Configure script:
# ./configure
This script asks a series of questions, but all of the questions have a reasonable
default response <ENTER>.
Further, once the ./configure is complete, scroll back and check the screen for any
errors, if any are found, delete the Makefile located at /tmp/hobbit-4.2.0/ and try again
(only after fixing the stated problems/issues).
This script asks a few questions and builds a file called Makefile, to compile Hobbit.
The 2 questions that require manual input are:
What group-ID does your webserver use ?
apache
What is the IP-address of this host [127.0.0.1] ?
10.0.0.2
4.1.2.2
make
When the configure script finishes, it tells you to run make to build the Hobbit
programs.
# make
Check for any errors in the screen output.
4.1.2.3
make Install
When it is finished, you finish the installation by running make install.
# make install
Check for any errors in the screen output.
The first time you run make install, besides installing the Hobbit programs it also creates the
default directory structure /home/hobbit/ used by Hobbit, and installs an initial set of

configuration files that you can use as the basis for setting up monitoring of your entire
network.
4.2
Uninstall Hobbit
Type the below command in the original install directory /tmp/hobbit-4.2.0/ to uninstall Hobbit.
# make clean
4.3
Configuring Apache for Hobbit
Hobbit uses a web-based front-end. So you need to configure your webserver so that it knows
where the Hobbit webpages can be found, and what CGI scripts can run as part of Hobbit.
This usually means adding a few lines to your webserver configuration that sets up a URL
which points at the ~/server/www/ directory, and which tells your webserver that the ~/cgi-bin/
directory holds CGI scripts that the webserver should run when they are requested.
You can find the necessary additions to the Apache configuration in:
# /home/hobbit/server/etc/hobbit-apacheconf
Copy all the text of the hobbit-apache.conf file and paste it to the bottom of the httpd.conf file:
# /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
These 2 lines must be added manually at the top of the file:
#LoadModule mod_placeholder /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_placeholder.so
Alias /hobbit/ "/home/hobbit/server/www/"
Note: If Hobbit was configured to put the Administration CGI scripts in a separate directory,
See Appendix 4.
Apache Hobbit account and password
4.3.1
Start Apache automatically when system restarts
# cd /etc/rc.d/
In the folders rc0.d – rc5.d, rename the file K15httpd to S15httpd
Now restart apache to get the changes effected.
# /etc/init.d/httpd reload

Hobbit Server - Tests Configuration
For full instructions on configuring a Hobbit server see the documentation installed with the
server. The product documentation is available via the menus:
On the installed Hobbit server
On the author’s Hobbit reference site
6.1
http://hobbit01/hobbit/
http://www.hswn.dk/hobbit/
Configuration
The Hobbit configuration is kept in the files in the /home/hobbit/server/etc/ directory. If you
look at this directory, you will see these files:
•
bb-hosts is the one you will change the most. This file contains a list of all the hosts
you are monitoring, including information such as their IP-address, what network
services you are monitoring on the host, what URL's you are checking, what subpage
in the Hobbit web-pages this host is shown on etc. The file snippet shows the use of
pages and groups to define which page displays the appropriate servers. Server side
tests eg. smtp, imap and ldap are also configured against each server in this file.

•
hobbit-clients.cfg is the configuration file for data reported by the Hobbit clients
installed on the hosts you are monitoring. This defines the color of the cpu-, disk-,
memory- and procs-columns, based on the information that is sent to Hobbit by the
clients.
•
hobbit-alerts.cfg holds the alerting configuration. In this file, you setup the rules for
sending out alerts about services going down: Who gets the alert, how is it sent, how
often, whether to send alerts 24x7 or only between 10 AM and 4 PM on weekdays
etc.
•
hobbitserver.cfg is the configuration file for the Hobbit server. This file defines a lot of
environment variables that are made available to all of the Hobbit programs when
they run. Some environment variables that are defined in the Big Brother system are
also setup by Hobbit, so that Big Brother extension scripts will work. The initial
configuration of hobbitserver.cfg is setup by the configure script when you install
Hobbit, and in most cases you will not need to change it. The only modifications to
this file are to produce extra graphs for the external tests such as exchange and
printq.
# TEST2RRD defines the status- and data-messages you want to collect RRD data
# about. You will normally not need to modify this, unless you have added a
# script to pick up RRD data from custom tests (the hobbitd_larrd --extra-script

# and --extra-tests options).
# Note that network tests defined in the bb-services file are automatically
# included.
# The format here is "COLUMN=RRDSERVICE". If you leave out the "=RRDSERVICE"
# part, it is assumed to be the same as the COLUMN value.
#
# This is also used by the bb-hostsvc.cgi script to determine if the detailed

•
hobbitlaunch.cfg is the configuration file for the hobbitlaunch tool. hobbitlaunch is the
master program in Hobbit, it is the only program you start to run the Hobbit server.
hobbitlaunch reads the hobbitlaunch.cfg file, and starts the programs listed here to
run the server. Some of the programs may run as daemons, some of the programs
may run at regular intervals. If you want to use some of the advanced options for the
bbgen or bbtest-net programs, you change the hobbitlaunch.cfg file to add these
options to the commandline. Modified to run the script makerrd.sh which creates the
RRD data used to draw graphs for the printq and pages external tests. For more
information on this see the section on custom graphs in the Hobbit documentation.
# "rrdstatus" updates RRD files with information that arrives as "status" messages.

Hobbit Windows Client v0.11
The hobbit server is able to perform a number of test using server side scripts. To monitor
more detailed information such as CPU utilisation, disk space available etc., it is necessary to
install a Hobbit client on the machine that is being monitored. Clients are available for
Windows and Linux servers. The infrastructure is predominantly Windows based and so we
will concentrate on installing the Windows client.
The latest Hobbit Windows client, BBWin is version 0.7. This can be downloaded from
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=136450. It is available as a MSI
package.
It is subsequently necessary to make some configuration changes and optionally to add in
some custom tests as detailed below.
NOTE: For manual install and configuration of the Client, see Appendix 5.
7.1
Client Installation
Copy over the Hobbit client to the client machine and double click the msi file (or exe) to
install it on the client machine.

Custom Tests
Hobbit Server 4.2 Install on RedHat 5 Enterprise – www.impee.co.uk
33 / 52
Additional tests have been written to provide additional information from print, exchange and
terminal servers. The tests are written in VBScript and integrated with the Hobbit Windows
client via the ‘externals’ functionality.
Install the tests using the following procedure:
•
•
•
•
•
Copy the config directory and contents to C:\Program Files\BBWin\
Copy the appropriate flag files eg.exchange.flag to C:\Program Files\BBWin\
Copy the ClientTests.wsf to C:\Program Files\BBWin\bin
Copy the common and tests directories and contents to C:\Program Files\BBWin\bin\
Edit BBwin.cfg:
<externals>
<setting name="timer" value="3m" />
<setting name="logstimer" value="60s" />
<load value="cscript ClientTests.wsf" />
--- add this line
<!-- load value="cscript mybbscript.vbs" /-->
<!-- load value="memory.exe" /-->
<!-- load value="cscript wlbs.vbs" timer="15m" /-->
<!-- load value="cluster.exe" timer="90s" /-->
</externals>

httpd.conf
The httpd.conf should look like this.
#LoadModule mod_placeholder /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_placeholder.so
Alias /hobbit/ "/home/hobbit/server/www/"
#
# This is the main Apache server configuration file. It contains the
# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
# See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/> for detailed information.
# In particular, see
# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/directives.html>
# for a discussion of each configuration directive.
#
#
# Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
# what they do. They're here only as hints or reminders. If you are unsure
# consult the online docs. You have been warned.
#
# The configuration directives are grouped into three basic sections:
# 1. Directives that control the operation of the Apache server process as a
# whole (the 'global environment').
# 2. Directives that define the parameters of the 'main' or 'default' server,
# which responds to requests that aren't handled by a virtual host.
# These directives also provide default values for the settings
# of all virtual hosts.
# 3. Settings for virtual hosts, which allow Web requests to be sent to
# different IP addresses or hostnames and have them handled by the
# same Apache server process.
#
# Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
# of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
# server will use that explicit path. If the filenames do *not* begin

# with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "logs/foo.log"
# with ServerRoot set to "/etc/httpd" will be interpreted by the
# server as "/etc/httpd/logs/foo.log".
#
### Section 1: Global Environment
#
# The directives in this section affect the overall operation of Apache,
# such as the number of concurrent requests it can handle or where it
# can find its configuration files.
#
#
# Don't give away too much information about all the subcomponents
# we are running. Comment out this line if you don't mind remote sites
# finding out what major optional modules you are running
ServerTokens OS
#
# ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
# configuration, error, and log files are kept.
#
# NOTE! If you intend to place this on an NFS (or otherwise network)
# mounted filesystem then please read the LockFile documentation
# (available at <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mpm_common.html#lockfile>);
# you will save yourself a lot of trouble.
#
# Do NOT add a slash at the end of the directory path.
#
ServerRoot "/etc/httpd"
#
# PidFile: The file in which the server should record its process
# identification number when it starts.
#
PidFile run/httpd.pid
#
# Timeout: The number of seconds before receives and sends time out.
#
Timeout 120
#
# KeepAlive: Whether or not to allow persistent connections (more than
# one request per connection). Set to "Off" to deactivate.
#
KeepAlive Off
#
# MaxKeepAliveRequests: The maximum number of requests to allow
# during a persistent connection. Set to 0 to allow an unlimited amount.
# We recommend you leave this number high, for maximum performance.
#
MaxKeepAliveRequests 100
#
# KeepAliveTimeout: Number of seconds to wait for the next request from the
# same client on the same connection.
#
KeepAliveTimeout 15

### Section 2: 'Main' server configuration
#
# The directives in this section set up the values used by the 'main'
# server, which responds to any requests that aren't handled by a
# <VirtualHost> definition. These values also provide defaults for
# any <VirtualHost> containers you may define later in the file.
#
# All of these directives may appear inside <VirtualHost> containers,
# in which case these default settings will be overridden for the
# virtual host being defined.
#
#
# ServerAdmin: Your address, where problems with the server should be
# e-mailed. This address appears on some server-generated pages, such
# as error documents. e.g. [email protected]
#
ServerAdmin [email protected]

# ServerName gives the name and port that the server uses to identify itself.
# This can often be determined automatically, but we recommend you specify

# redirections will not work. See also the UseCanonicalName directive.

# If your host doesn't have a registered DNS name, enter its IP address here.
# You will have to access it by its address anyway, and this will make

### Section 3: Virtual Hosts
#
# VirtualHost: If you want to maintain multiple domains/hostnames on your
# machine you can setup VirtualHost containers for them. Most configurations
# use only name-based virtual hosts so the server doesn't need to worry about
# IP addresses. This is indicated by the asterisks in the directives below.
#
# Please see the documentation at
# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/vhosts/>
# for further details before you try to setup virtual hosts.
#
# You may use the command line option '-S' to verify your virtual host
# configuration.
#
# Use name-based virtual hosting.
#
#NameVirtualHost *:80
#
# NOTE: NameVirtualHost cannot be used without a port specifier
# (e.g. :80) if mod_ssl is being used, due to the nature of the
# SSL protocol.
#
#
# VirtualHost example:
# Almost any Apache directive may go into a VirtualHost container.
# The first VirtualHost section is used for requests without a known
# server name.
#
#<VirtualHost *:80>
# ServerAdmin [email protected]
# DocumentRoot /www/docs/dummy-host.example.com

********************** SECURITY NOTICE ****************************
If your Hobbit server is accessible by outsiders, then you should
restrict access to the CGI scripts that handle enable/disable of
hosts, and acknowledging of alerts. The easiest way to do this is
to put these in a separate CGI directory and require a password to
access them.
Even if your Hobbit server is on a secured, internal network, you
may want to have some operations (like disabling a host) be password-
Hobbit Server 4.2 Install on RedHat 5 Enterprise – www.impee.co.uk

protected - that lets you see who disabled or acknowledged an alert.
Where to put the Hobbit Administration CGI scripts [/home/hobbit/cgi-secure] ?
(Note: This is the filesystem directory - we will get to the URL shortly)
What is the URL for the Hobbit Administration CGI directory [/hobbit-seccgi] ?
(Note: This is the URL - NOT the filesystem directory)
** Note that you may need to modify your webserver configuration.
** After installing, see /home/hobbit/server/etc/hobbit-apache.conf for an example configuration.
To generate Hobbit availability reports, your webserver
must have write-access to a directory below the Hobbit
top-level directory. I can set this up if you tell me
what group-ID your webserver runs with. This is typically
'nobody' or 'apache' or 'www-data'
If you dont know, just hit ENTER and we will handle it later.
What group-ID does your webserver use ?
apache
Where to put the Hobbit logfiles [/var/log/hobbit] ?
What is the name of this host [hobbit01] ?
What is the IP-address of this host [127.0.0.1] ?
10.0.0.2
Where should I install the Hobbit man-pages (/usr/local/man) ?
Using Linux Makefile settings
Created Makefile with the necessary information to build Hobbit
Some defaults are used, so do look at the Makefile before continuing.
Configuration complete - now run make (GNU make) to build the tools

Appendix 4
If you configured Hobbit to put the Administration CGI scripts into a separate
directory:
If you configured Hobbit to put the Administration CGI scripts into a separate directory
(recommended for better security), you will also need to setup the password-file that
controls access to this directory. Use the htpasswd command both to create the
password file and to add or delete users.
NOTE: It will first be necessary to create the directory structure for this.
Type the below:
# /usr/bin/htpasswd -c /usr/local/hobbit/server/etc/hobbitpasswd admin
Provide a new password when prompted as below:
New password: <provide a new password>
Re-type new password: <provide a new password>
Adding password for user admin
