If the server is in hosts.cfg somewhere, then the "direct" history links,
, should still work -- since they're just reading from the flat files in
the hostdata, hist, and histlog directories -- regardless of the lack of
new data coming in.
The easiest way to get the host to be displayed in this case is to send a
fake, absurdly long TTL status message in for each previous status you
want easy access to, and from there drill down to the history link.
I agree, xymon does need a more discrete browsing interface for events
generally (as well as for client hostdata snapshots) outside of the live
