[Xymon] Plagued by purple

It looks like the green tests are all standard Xymon tests and the purple ones might be external scripts in client/ext/ in the Xymon (or Hobbit) home directory. 
Check the client/etc/clientlaunch.cfg on any of the purple-plagued clients and see if any of the purple tests are mentioned.

Thanks, Josh, but can you point out where I can check to see which of those options is my likely culprit? 

Also, don’t quite follow your comment about your “raid script”. What raid script?
