There is a 'nonongreen' host option you can use in the hosts.cfg.
Taken from //localhost/xymon/help/manpages/man5/hosts.cfg.5.html

If you want to set this for many hosts, 'nonongreen' is an accepted 
argument on a .default. host line. Look up "Default Host" in that same 
doc file.
    Do things because you should, not just because you can.
