For the built-in network tests I think badTEST would do what you're asking. (badftp, badssh, badhttp, etc) See http://www.xymon.com/xymon/help/manpages/man5/hosts.cfg.5.html.

Subject: [Xymon] Spikes in activity.

Hi all,

I've looked through the documentation for Xymon and I can't seem to find any way to only have an icon colour change if a threshold has been passed for x number of consecutive tests.

I'm aware that alerts allow this kind of thing but would really like the dashboard not to change colour if we just get a spike in disk, cpu or memory usage (amongst other things).

Is there any way to do this?
