[Xymon] ifconfig request

When the clients collects data to send the server, one of the commands
issues is ifconfig. Where can I go to edit this so that the ifconfig
becomes "ifconfig 2>/dev/null"?
It turns out that systems with network interfaces that have mac addresses
larger than 8 bytes cause ifconfig to print the following message to
Ifconfig uses the ioctl access method to get the full address
information, which limits hardware addresses to 8 bytes. Because
Infiniband address has 20 bytes, only the first 8 bytes are displayed
correctly. Ifconfig is obsolete! For replacement check ip.
So, if I can edit the command list so that standard error is sent to
/dev/null, my xymonclientlog will not fill up.
