>From the comments in hobbit-clients.cfg (hobbit v4.1.1):

#    PROC processname minimumcount maximumcount color
#             To check for a process that must NOT be running: Set
minimum and 
#             maximum to 0.

Your lines check for a minimum of 0 processes but specify no maximum. I
suggest you try

         PROC "%some_1_proc" 0 0 red
         PROC "%some_2_proc" 0 0 red
         PROC "%some_3_proc" 0 0 red

to get a red alarm when you have more than 0 processes.

         PROC "%some_1_proc" 0
         PROC "%some_2_proc" 0
         PROC "%some_3_proc" 0

web page:

green %some_1_proc (found 1,  req. none)
green %some_2_proc (found 1,  req. none)
green %some_3_proc (found 1,  req. none)

I would have hoped that the processes would have alarmed 'red' since I 
was expecting 0 processes?  I was trying to mimic the '!' function from 
BB in bb-proctab.
