Hi all,
Few things that we notice :
1) Error during the make install 
cd etcfiles; ../../build/merge-lines hobbitcgi.cfg
cd etcfiles; ../../build/merge-sects hobbitlaunch.cfg
/home/hobbit/server/etc/hobbitlaunch.cfg larrdstatus=rrdstatus
merge-sects in free(): error: junk pointer, too high to make sense
Abort trap (core dumped)
gmake[1]: *** [install-cfg] Error 134
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/root/software/hobbit-4.1.1/hobbitd'
gmake: *** [install-hobbitd] Error 2

 Workaround : 
    Change manualy the occurence of larrd to rrd in hobbitlaunch.cfg
2) bbhostgrep with the following tags:
   we have a lot of nokia appliance that we poll for snmp via the snmp
script, the devices don't reply for icmp, so we need to have this line in
our bb-hosts
    x.x.x.x    nokiavpn   # testip noconn snmp
   when we execute bbhostgrep snmp, it return no value. The only way
actually is to put 
   x.x.x.x    nokiavpn   # testip noping snmp
  but we would like to not have the conn test (we need testip as the boxes
don't have a fqdn)
3)   hobbit client
     About the disk, 
         The release 5.4 got devfs (2 entries show 100%), so the line with
df should look like:  df -H -tnonfs,nullfs,cd9660,procfs,devfs
     Not quite sure about vmstat, 
         In freebsd you can use -w for wait -c for count, so should it be
vmstat -w 300 -c 2 instead of vmstat 300 2, 
         also the sleep command in Freebsd take argument in second so sleep
5 is for 5 second , was it expected to wait 5 minutes ?
Thanks for this great product,
Laurent Grilli
