[Xymon] Looking for "page too old" script

The page is set to expire immediately and usually the cache problems are the
browser/client.  At least in my experience.

On hobbit-clients.cfg for the host (it has proc tests already) I added:

FILE   /var/www/foo/bar/output.png red mtime<1800 #go red if file older than
30 minutes

How do I get the client to send the details about this file?  From reading
the man page I need to specify client-local.cfg but I am not sure what goes
in this.  I'm pretty sure I want:


Do I put this under [linux]?  If I do this, will it only have the clients
with an appropriate FILE check or ask this file of every linux box?
