I'm not familiar with devmon but custom tests are described in sufficient detail here:

Good Luck.

Subject: [hobbit] TS - Hobbit ==> SNMP

I have installed Hobbit on a Dell R-610 on CentOS 5.4.
I have installed Net:SNMP so that I can query a MIB.

I am looking for a good setup guide/HOW-TO to integrate a test to controlling an ICON on a device.
I must be searching in the archive for the wrong string.

I want to test a MIB or MIBs and then trigger a change in the ICON red, yellow, green
    e.g. temperature of a device, or reserve power in a UPS

I am also looking for a GOOD ☺ HOW-TO for setting up DEVMON on the Xymon server.
It seems that it can read the bb-hosts file to find the devices to monitor.
But then again, I read that you have to edit a configuration file for the device and the test to run.
I could not find a good testing info source of the options that are available.
If you use the config file does it then only test the devices in the configs file vs. the bb-hosts file?
