So that would be the server is performing a test on the non-existent machine.

Look in tasks.cfg or tasks.d. Or maybe it’s a crontab.

The other thing you can do is put the non-existent machine into hosts.cfg and then eventually you will get the test to show up, so you know what it is that is running on that machine.

Subject: [Xymon] Ghost-busting... how to locate a ghost client

I have a non-existent server which shows constantly in my “Ghost clients” report. I think there must be a test somewhere that’s reporting the wrong host name.

Is there anything I can do to find out where that message is coming from? The Ghost clients report tells me the sender is “” (of course).
