[hobbit] NCV problems still

Thanks for going to this effort....

I also have no idea as to why. I will do some more digging and will let
you know where I screwed up. Perhaps my client script is putting
soemthing in the file that I don't see. I will try sending test messages
as you have and see if things become better.

I have absolutely no problems when I reproduce your setup. I've done it
on the Hobbit demo site at http://www.hswn.dk/hobbit/servers/ - look at
the bottom of the page for the "osiris.hswn.dk" host.

All of the config. files are online, you can see them via the "Demo
Site" menu item. The changes I made were:

1) Add "pro4=ncv" to TEST2RRD in hobbitserver.cfg

2) Add "pro4" (and "ncv" if it's not there) to GRAPHS in

3) Add a new setting NCV_pro4="DEV:GAUGE,RUN:GAUGE" to hobbitserver.cfg

4) Kill the hobbitd_rrd processes so they restart and pick up the new
   hobbitserver.cfg settings

5) Define the [pro4] setting in hobbitgraph.cfg
        TITLE Pro4 graphs
        YAXIS Seconds
        LINE2:dev#00CCCC:DEV time
        LINE2:run#FF0000:RUN time
        GPRINT:dev:LAST:DEV time \: %5.1lf%s (cur)
        GPRINT:dev:MAX: \: %5.1lf%s (max)
        GPRINT:dev:MIN: \: %5.1lf%s (min)
        GPRINT:dev:AVERAGE: \: %5.1lf%s (avg)\n
        GPRINT:run:LAST:RUN time \: %5.1lf%s (cur)
        GPRINT:run:MAX: \: %5.1lf%s (max)
        GPRINT:run:MIN: \: %5.1lf%s (min)
        GPRINT:run:AVERAGE: \: %5.1lf%s (avg)\n

6) Start sending status messages for the "pro4" status using this
   script (dummy data, cut-and-pasted from your mails):

   $BB "status osiris,hswn.dk.pro4 green `date`
   DEV : 57
   RUN : 20
   exit 0
