The scripts are running client-side and/or server-side? Can you describe
how the scripts work? Are they locally-written scripts or did you get them
from somewhere online?
RAID checks are not standard for most Xymon clients. I've never used or
seen RAID checks. A quick look at the source code indicates built-in
support for only Linux, where "md" devices are identified in /proc/mdstat.

How is the RAID information getting into the client data? This might not
be used by your custom scripts, and so might be a red herring. More detail
is required about the raid scripts. Or whether you're using the built-in
support for Linux RAID meta-devices reporting with client data in the
[mdstat] section. If the latter, perhaps you could show the [mdstat]
section of client data?
