Hmm, might be a devmon parsing issue.

I'm thinking about using the baked in Xymon SNMP tests but how would I

I guess you'd need to configure up a new entry in snmpmibs.conf. I wouldn't
know how to do this TBH, on my servers, I let devmon do the RAID stuff and
I relieve it from its duty for monitoring interface,ICMP and storage stats.

Curious. I'd be looking at the differences between gen7 and gen9 responses
to see if you can detect anything there.
