I found that this wasn't particularly hard to do in shell script, using
qpage to deliver notification.  It was about a 6 hour job, but I'm not so
much worried with performance monitoring as with functionality.  Most of
the work went into detecting a special case that our ESIX boxes get
themselves into, where they will be pingable, and you can rsh to the box,
but the command never actually executes and never times out to an error.
