A host+test combination which does not report often enough will go 
'purple'. The duration or 'life' of a status message can be set by 
sending a status+LIFETIME.

I have a a couple of tests which have not gone purple, despite not being 
updated for over a week. I have a file named
which contains the times the test named "test" has changed state for the 
host foo.bar.com.  The last entry is 1496866851 which works out to June 7th.

Where can I find the information indicating when xymond will consider 
this test ready to go purple?
    Do things because you should, not just because you can.
