[Xymon] how to view new group on hosts file more frequently

Most TAGs define tests which are interpreted by xymonnet
How frequently xymonnet runs is defined in tasks.cfg
The default interval is 5-minutes

The common web pages are built by xymongen.
How frequently xymongen runs is defined in tasks.cfg
I don't know the default interval

A new column will appear only after there is a test result for it, _and_ 
xymongen builds a new page with the result. After an edit to hosts.cfg, 
you may force xymonnet to run for a specific host with:
   xymoncmd xymonnet foo.bar.com
That will run xymonnet for only the host foo.bar.com. The next time 
xymongen runs, the new column will be there.

    Do things because you should, not just because you can.
