Try removing the TRACK keyword, and then change NOEXIST to lower case.
I think Henrik has reported that there are a few bugs in this code,
and it is not always clear when case matters and when it doesn't, or
when the order of the arguments matters.

When all else fails, nuke it and start over. I did an apt-get
remove hobbit, and then a dpkg -- purge. Then I removed any files I
could find. Then I downloaded the Ubuntu deb file and installed it. It
put the configuration files in /etc/hobbit and it started fine
I edited /etc/hobbit/hobbit-clients.cfg and added the following
PROC ntpd 1 99 green "TEXT=NTPD is up"
Restarted hobbit, and in a few minutes, it started reporting as
Then I added:
PORT "LOCAL=%(:8888)" TEXT="Gnump is up"
To the same file, (/etc/hobbit/hobbit-clients.cfg) and restared
A few minutes later, the ports section started reporting, as
(Though I realize that its a bit off, which I need to fix)
Then I added:
FILE /etc/passwd GREEN NOEXIST track
Reading the documentation inside hobbit-clients.cfg I edited
/etc/hobbit/client- local.cfg and added the following line:
restarted hobbit, waited 5 minutes. No luck.
I'm pretty convinced that either:
1. the format of the line in /etc/hobbit/client-local.cfg or
/etc/hobbit/hobbit-clients.cfg is incorrect, or
2. There's something else I need to edit.
