Hi All,

Thanks for getting back to me Damien, unfortunately I still have these 
issues despite following your advice and trying to escape the forward 
slashes. My problem still persists both when I configure the analysis on 
the clients or the server.

Is xymon able to log line skips in analysis.cfg due to syntax errors 
etc? Would the debug option for xymond_client log this?
