Which means: show all information available and have it checked
(validated) on the server.

configure your hosts.
> In centralised mode, it seems to be hit or miss whether it reports on events in the system log (some clients work, some don't), whereas in local mode it works fine.
Also, here you have to modify on the central server your configfiles.
You must tell the clients to monitor the local logfiles:
Central mode? Configure clients-local.cfg as follows:
This might help.
