In config file server/etc/client-local.cfg you specify what logfile the client 
will report to the server.  You have to add a section for your client to it.  
Once the client picks this up (to be sure restart the hobbit server and wait 
at least 10 minutes), the msgs column should be green and the logfile should 
appear on it.
Once this works, you can change hobbit-clients.cfg so the server knows the 
yellow and green conditions.
