[Xymon] way to tell what version of the client is running

My solution was this.

Change this line in client/bin/xymonclient.sh
CLIENTVERSION="`$XYMONHOME/bin/clientupdate --level`"
CLIENTVERSION="`$XYMONHOME/bin/xymon --version`"

This shows up on the info page.
Hostname:          host01
OS:         SunOS host01 5.10 Generic_147440-19 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V240
Client S/W:         Xymon version 4.3.10
Of course that doesn't work if you push out the clients from your server.
The client will most probably clobber that file.
But I guess you could change the clientupdate to include this.
I don't use the clientupdate function.

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.
