New feature ?

I would like to propose a possible new feature.
In the hobbit-clients.cfg on the server, we can specify default
threshholds for most things, but the selection is based on hostname.
Is there a way to specify the machine architecture as an identifier.
To give an example, I run a mixed bag of Sun T2000, V440, V490, and
Because of what we are running on each server type, we find a large run
queue on the T2000 is quite normal, but on one of the others, we expect
a very small run queue.
Instead of defining runqueue threshhold per host name, it would be nice
to have a ARCH option which could be overridden by the HOST
So we could define
ARCH=x86_64 # Linux
LOAD 5.0 10
ARCH=i86pc # Solaris on x86
LOAD 6 12
ARCH=SUNW,SPARC-Enterprise # A solaris 10 zone
LOAD 8 12
ARCH=SUNW,Sun-Fire-V490 # A Sun V490
LOAD 6 9
ARCH=SUNW,Sun-Fire-T200 # A T2000 reports as T200 - don't ask!
LOAD 15 25
However, if further down the list we had a HOST server01 we could
redefine the LOAD, despite it being a T2000.
LOAD 10 15
The utility of this would mean I don't have to define every host
Of course, we could also use the same definitions for OS as returned by
SunOS, Linux etc. (I see you use this in the client scripts)
It would be nice to have that flexibility in the configs.
