The goto free tool for this task is Nagios, it requires centralised configuration though but it is impressive. See nagios.org

Thanks Ray. Sounds like it will be easy enough to re-factor when time permits. Might be worth dropping a TODO comment in to highlight the issue, striking a balance between technical authority and sensitivity to the pressure that we are sometimes under to get things done.

Ray, the more I think about this the more I think that you should object to the code based on the security hole the boolean to turn of access control introduces into the application. The quality improvement to the code base will be a nice side effect ;)
