You could investigate using Big Sister as a client. It's been a few years since I used it. It ~was Perl based and ~was compatible with Big Brother/port 1984 transmission/BB messaging format at the time.

I think it is safe to mention it now; in the past, Mr. Croteau and Mr. MacGuire would throw thunderbolts from Mount BB.

Subject: [Xymon] Perl client without xymon client. (OPEN)

Is there anyone that have made a perl module or subroutine for sending to a xymon-server without having to install the xymon client?
On some node it is difficult to install a client. Some vendors are very afraid of having things installed on "their" equipment, and the os might be stripped down with no compilers and so on.
For sending to xymon I guess all you need is a simple socket connections so I expect that this has been done many times already.
Anyone who would like to share?
