Hi, I wonder if this is an issue with the server or with the client.

Im running the latest version of the server (4.1.2p1) and I still couldnt
get rid off the alert.

Many thanks,

Yes there is - fix the bug that makes hobbitd_client crash, and you
won't see any hobbitd_client statuses. Ever.

For starters, check that you are running the latest version (4.1.2p1 -
the older versions do have bugs in the hobbitd_client code). And
check the "Reporting Bugs" part of
