hobbitclient.cfg - Xymon client environment variables
Xymon programs use multiple environment variables beside the normal set
of variables. For the Xymon client, the environment definitions are
stored in the ~xymon/client/etc/hobbitclient.cfg file. Each line in
this file is of the form NAME=VALUE and defines one environment
variable NAME with the value VALUE.
