You could add this into client-local.cfg on the server:

file:`( echo "client/xymonversion $MACHINE.$OSTYPE"; echo
"[clientversion]"; $XYMON --version ) | $XYMON $XYMSRV @ >/dev/null`

Assign to each device you want to know about.  This causes each client to
run "xymon --version" and send the result back as a supplementary "client"
message.  Then on the server you can retrieve it with the "clientlog" type
message that Japheth showed.  If you upgrade clients, they will
automatically report new version strings.
