Hey folks,

Anyone know of a "What's Up" type of system for Linux?

What's Up being a program that can check the availability of remote
services on specified intervals and alert you if it can't get to one of
the systems you're monitoring.

I would prefer if it could run as a daemon or, at least, in the background
as a cron job.
