It is clear, because although the client is sending the relevant data (in the 
ports and procs case), you haven't configured the Xymon/Hobbit server to check 
for any processes or ports. Add some to the hobbit-clients.cfg file.

If you want to monitor the presence/size/contents of files or directories, you 
need to add the files/dirs that must be present there too, but additionally 
need to tell the client to send data on them (by configuring this in client-
local.cfg on the server-side, and waiting for at least 2 reporting intervals).
