Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

XFB already has a hard job matching different operating- and filesystems with optional compression and retry mechanism. You want some logic what will happen when 1 transfer fails (only send second when
first succeeds, shoot-and-forget, always try to send both and trust your incident management to catch the errors thrown by your monitoring, wait for async transfer for time depending on filesize,..). I wouldn’t trust the XFB options and just make a loop in your script doing exactly what you want. The additional advantage is that a migration to another communication tool will be easier.

while read -r targethost; do
   # You need a copy, since xfb will rename and delete the file
   cp outputfile outputfile.${targethost}
   my_send_xfb ${targethost} outputfile.${targethost}
   # optional check result posting the file in the queue
   if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
      echo "Xfb not ready or configured for ${targethost}"
      # Perhaps break / send alert / ..
   fi
done < myhosts
