Xymon is not of this century. It works like a web app from the '90s, by 
batch updates. Hit F5 all you want, and it still won't affect the 
contents of the web page. If you want the contents of that page to 
update more frequently, you need to run xymongen more frequently.

Look in your tasks.cfg and change the INTERVAL on xymongen

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