Adam Thorn,

Thank you! The SNI tag worked (the command line returned a lot of stuff, nothing of value - looked the same with a working and non-working webserver.

Tim Williams,
That is good to know.  I will look for the new ps client.

Thank you all

The second problem below caused purple alerts.  Changing the order fixed it and have not seen purple alerts since.

First of all Thank You!  This is a fantastic product.  I have two problems.  The first is with regards to SSL monitoring.  I have a group of 20 or so webservers.  Half monitor the SSL certificate correctly, the others act like they do not see one.

It looks good from every way I can look at it, but Xymon is not happy!  Is there a way for me to see what is going on?

This second problem, although not a big issue, some of our servers report back an extremely large client file - the active connections list is so long the complete file does not get ingested.  I have tried changing the max lines parameter, but that had not made any difference.  On some of them I changed to order of the report so the data that is typically after the ports section is ingested and the ports data is dropped off.  Losing part of the ports data  does not appear to cause a problem and I cannot tell by the current monitors I am even missing data.  (it would be interesting to see how many connections  -  listening, established and waiting - are reported).

Best regards,
David Hickenbottom
