What version of HP-UX are you running? I am running 11.11 and here it works.

  I just started doing some process monitoring in Hobbit.  It's working fine on all platforms except HP/UX.  On HP/UX systems the status goes to Warning immediately, and when you get the details it says:

  yellow Expected string COMMAND not found in ps output header

  UID        PID  PPID  C    STIME TTY          TIME CMD
  root         0     0  0  Jul  5  ?           04:10 swapper
  root         1     0  0  Jul  5  ?           35:35 init

  I checked and sure enough, HP/UX seems to use "CMD" as the header for the ps column that the other operating systems call "COMMAND", so it isn't checking the processes right.

  Is that string somewhere in hobbit that I can change, like a script, or would it be compiled into the binary?
