Hi Marius,

this could happen if the client data is too big. Are you able to check
the client data? Normally you find a link "Client data available" on the
builtin checks (cpu, disk, inode, msgs etc.) that displays the file that
has been transferred from the client to the server for further processing.
the topmost line should say [collector:] and the last line should
contain the time in UTC. If the last line is missing then there is
simply too much data that needs to be transferred from client to server.
Then you have to add/change MAXMSG_CLIENT to your xymonserver.cfg

First of course check your xymond.log if you see messages about files
being truncated.
If changing the xymonserver.cfg is not an option you can always reduce
the amount of data on the client side by editing the runclient.sh and
filter some things there before they are written to the client file that
is sent. But be aware if you do it that way you'll have to repeat it
when you upgrade your client.
