Hi Marcin,


rather than using the group directive look at the man page for hosts.cfg https://xymon/xymon/help/manpages/man5/hosts.cfg.5.html and find the section describing group-only and group-except. Those are special versions of the group command which let you include or exclude certain columns.

Subject: [Xymon] Display xymon server modules on own line


My old hobbit config:     localhost  # noconn bbd NAME:"xymon server modules"
group Servers
<server1-ip>  server1    # http://server1/     NOCOLUMNS:files,ports
<server2-ip>  server2    # http://server2/path NOCOLUMNS:files,ports
<server3-ip>  ...
used to display hobbit-server-specific tests separate from the other tests, even though the modules reported actually run on server1.  This was a nifty trick not to have these tests listed for all servers, with only server1 reporting, and others displaying dashes.
After moving to xymon, on the "xymon server modules" I only see bbd, info, and trends; xymond, xymongen, and xymonnet magically moved to the server1 line, defeating the purpose of this split.  
How can I achieve this split, where xymon server modules are listed on their own line?
