Ooops, brain fart! 

I have no idea why I confused xymon for xymoncmd. Thanks, that solved my problem! :)

Not quite - I was away from my pc for an hour or so :-))

"xymoncmd" is the new name for the "bbcmd" command. You want the new "bb" command which is just called "xymon". (See ? There really is some logic to it). So try this:

./xymon "drop construct.geosoft.com hobbitd_rrd"

The command you use ends up trying to run a program called "", and you obviously don't have such a program installed.

BTW, you shouldn't have neither a hobbitd_rrd or xymond_rrd status, since that points to these programs having crashed. So once you drop it, I hope it won't show up again.
