Can you be more specific?

The name of the 'conn' column is defined in the options for xymonnet.

I suspect that needs to align with a similar setting in xymonserver.cfg, 
where there are some other similar settings.

> PINGCOLUMN="conn"               # Column where the ping-test reports results.

I'm not aware of any other columns generated server-side by default. I'm 
pretty sure all other columns are going to be created by 
client-generated messages.

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