Yes, one is supposed to be able to filter what gets passed into xymon in via client-local.cfg on the xymon server but the problem is xymond rejects everything because of "flooding" before it can be filtered.

it appears the data flooding is somewhat but not exactly related to the MAXMSG parameters - larger values reduce the frequency of the data flooding errors.

Do you need every message in the file? Perhaps you can define some "match" and/or "ignore" lines to limit what comes through. I've never used BBWin, so I don't know what's possible (and what works in central or non-central modes), but the doco suggests that you can do this in some fashion.
